Google has announced that Google Meet is now available to anyone for free. Until now, Meet has only been available as part of G Suite.

Today, we’re making Google Meet, our premium video conferencing product, free for everyone, with availability rolling out over the coming weeks. We’ve invested years in making Meet a secure and reliable video conferencing solution that’s trusted by schools, governments and enterprises around the world, and in recent months we’ve accelerated the release of top-requested features to make it even more helpful. Starting in early May, anyone with an email address can sign up for Meet and enjoy many of the same features available to our business and education users, such as simple scheduling and screen sharing, real-time captions, and layouts that adapt to your preference, including an expanded tiled view.

If you have an existing Google Account, you can sign in at meet.google.com to get started. If you don’t one, you'll need to create one as a security measure. The free product limits meetings to 60 minutes; however, Google won't enforce this limit until after September 30.

Google is also launching a new G Suite Essentials product for groups and teams that offers access to Meet’s more advanced features, such as dial-in phone numbers, larger meetings, and meeting recording. G Suite Essentials also includes Google Drive and Docs, Sheets and Slides. You can get access to G Suite Essentials free of charge through September 30 by contacting sales.

To be notified when Meet is available for your account, sign up here. You can download Hangouts Meet by Google from the App Store for free.

Too late zoom has the lead. Not like Zoom is much better than Google, as 1/3 workers are from China and their traffic goes through Chinese servers (which gives the CCP opportunity to sneak in).

Google is a virus.
