This article explains how to save meeting transcripts from Google Meet. Google Meet has a built-in caption feature that automatically generates a transcript of whatever the participants say. The feature shows the transcription in real-time but there is no option to save it.
Tactiq Pins for Google Meet is a Chrome extension that lets you save meeting transcripts from Google Meet. The main idea behind this extension is to give users the ability to pin certain segments of the transcript and export them out. It extracts the transcript from the caption feature and shows that in a floating tab where users can mark important segments. Once done, the marked transcript can be to clipboard, text file, or directly to a new Google Docs documents. There is one more export feature that opens the transcript in Tactiq note editor where users can add additional bits to the transcript.

When you open the Google Meet with this extension configured, it opens a small window on the screen. This window is draggable means you can move and place it anywhere on the screen.
The floating window is where it shows the transcript with text pinning. When you are in a meeting, enable the auto caption feature. The floating window shows the exact caption and you can double-click on any segment of the transcript to make a pin.
When you are finished with the meeting, click the extension icon again and choose the export option to save the transcript. From there, you can copy the transcript to the clipboard, save to a TXT file, export to Google Docs, or save to Tactiq itself.
