 One more choice for video conferencing, Google Meet is open for free! iOS, Android and web version, support 100 people meeting Recently, Google officially announced that from the beginning of May, as long as it is a Gmail account holder, it will be free to use the Google Meet service that was originally limited to G Suite users .Google has several bets within the territory of video calls. We have Hangouts, the oldest of all although undergoing some changes, and we also have Duo, their exclusive video calls for mobile phones. But on the business side, Google's flagship product is known as Google Meet .



We say business because Meet is closely tied to Google Suite accounts, aimed at companies and corporations. But in the midst of this global pandemic, and with the competition escalating positions and quickly taking advantage, Google has just decided that Meet is open to any user of its services . Therefore, it will only be necessary to have a Google account to be able to use it.



Meet video calls for all Google users

As we say, Meet was born as the video call solution for the user business branch , the one that has long gone to its paid Google Suite accounts, among which we also find Google Suite for Education accounts with advantages such as access to Google Classroom, among others. Recently, however, Meet took the step of breaking free for all Suite users, not just paid users.

Now, the next step is to directly face solutions such as the recent Zoom or Jitsi Meet , or to veterans of the Skype level or their own Hangouts, or to newcomers such as Messenger Rooms . Meet is now completely open , and you only need to have an active Google account to create a video conference with the service. Any Google account does not have to be a Google Suite.


Now open, Google Meet video calls offer simultaneous conversations with up to 100 participants and no time limit . In addition, Google has promised to continue incorporating different security measures, such as different controls applicable by the creators of video calls. We just have to have an active Google account, have the browser session open with it and that's it, we can create meetings in Meet and join those created by other participants.

At the moment, it seems that the top of this "free" is set at September 30 , like other measures taken by the Google team in recent weeks. But until that arrives, video calls with up to 100 participants and no time limit for everyone. For all Google users, of course. We will see how it evolves over time, perhaps we are witnessing the first step of the disappearance of Hangouts in the near future. It will depend, we suppose, on how this movement works.
