Google has detailed the expiry limits of the Google Meet meeting codes, according to the product they were generated by, to help admins and end-users ensure that they are valid, especially for meetings they have planned far in advance.
"Google Meet meetings can be scheduled across Google Workspace products, such as Calendar, Gmail, Google Chat, and more. This means your unique meeting code and its expiration are based on the product that your meeting is created from," Google said.
Starting May 19, 2021, the Meet meeting code expirations will take effect. Here's the full breakdown of meeting code expirations according to the product they were generated by:

Google Calendar

Meeting codes expire when the following two conditions are met:

  • The meeting code has not been used for 365 days
