I have a personal Google account. I can create Google Meet rooms easily by clicking on the "Start a meeting" button:

enter image description here

The URLs created by clicking that button are like https://meet.google.com/xxx-yyyy-zzz. The problem is, it seems it is not possible to create a room with an arbitrary xxx-yyyy-zzz (see this example).

enter image description here

So, I am guessing, in order to create a new room/URL for a meeting, you need to use the "Start a meeting" button.

The thing is, I would like to use the same URL/link for meetings with someone in the future (i.e.: I would like to bookmark it and reuse it anytime I want to talk to that person). I wonder if the link will still be valid then.

What is the duration of that link/URL? Do I need to revisit the URL from time to time in order to avoid expiration?

Reading answers from this question from Google Meet Help, as long as you regularly used the link, then the link continues to remain valid. However, it expires after 90 days if not used but there is always the possibility that Google will change its policy so maybe make an entry in your diary beforehand to make sure it persists.

  • Thanks! Suggested edit: enphasize expires after 90 days if not used and maybe note that you can use the recurrent calendar event trick to avoid expiration. :-)

    If it's really important don't rely on things that arent's supported by an official doc. Google could change it's mind in anytime without announcing it. The referred thread is locked, it's from 6 months ago and it's about a product with changing policies due to the COVID-19 contingency. Oct 7, 2020 at 14:09
