Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?

I don't see a point in having a conversation about a job a year in advance--with a recruiter, anyway. Companies don't really hire that far out, and recruiters only fill already open positions. Given it's FAANG, I think G will wait for you for up to a year(?) if you pass the hiring committee, but team matching that far out probably isn't the best idea. Lead with what's important, which here is that you're not available for a year and you're guessing they're looking for something sooner. Then ask if they'd still like to hear your background in case a good match comes up later, or if they'd like their time back and if you could follow up closer to when you're on the market. I'll go one step farther and suggest you don't even schedule a call for the next recruiter, but reply all this in a message. If they do have something long term, they'll tell you. It's probably good to mention visa things ahead too, since these can sometimes have their own timelines that are more touchy and totally out of recruiters' control. Sounds like you're getting a GC though, so this might not apply to you anymore, in which case congrats!
