HOW TO SET UP A GOOGLE ACCOUNT

To use Google Meet (the tool we’re using to host our online groups) on a smart phone, you will need the Google Meet App (find out where here). In order to use the app, you will need a Google account. You do not need to set up a new @gmail.com email – you can use your existing email address. Watch the video above for more details of how to do this.
