The feature was first and only available to Google Workspace for Education customers. Now, it’s on all of Google’s Meet apps across desktop and mobile, including users with personal Google accounts.
Alongside, there is quick access control and it will be toggled on by default, this will allow meeting participants from your domain can automatically join the meeting from a mobile or desktop device, and by dialing in.
