Google Meet Video meeting | Free for everyoneGoogle Meet Free for Everyone

Video conferencing tool Google meet became completely free and accessible to everyone initially many of the features were only available for G suite users however now everyone has access to this powerful and user-friendly video  conferencing tool directly from your free gmail account.

Now you can join and host a meeting with Google Meet directly from your free Gmail account. This is exciting news for everyone from individuals, small businesses to large corporates.

Google Meet is a video conferencing software initially design for corporates, however, it is now a great alternative to other video conferencing tools like Skype , webx and Zoom.

Google also laid out a number of default privacy protections in place with Meet, including host controls  like

  • Ability to admit or deny entry to a meeting
  • Mute or remove participants
  • Complex meeting codes and encryption in transit.

This seems to be taking aim at Zoom, which has recently faced a number of security issues, including uninvited guests  meetings.

You’ll be able to use the video chat service on the web at meet.google.com and on mobile apps for iOS or Android.
