Video Conferencing service providing by Google as “Google Meet”; is now opened for everyone who is willing to use it. Prior to this, Google was offering this service just to enterprise and education customers through G-Suite. From now on anybody who is using Google Meet can create a free meeting space that could hold up to 100 people for any amount of time.
However, people should be logged in google account before they could attend the video meeting and google is also working on to carry out several features to make it more safe and reliable after the recent cases with Zoom. In recent days, the surge in the usages of Zoom had led the hackers to exploit the flaws of this new Video sharing platform resulting in leaking sensitive users data online.
On another side, Google’s Hangout Video Chat is still in service, to which Google has replied stating that the product will be transitioned to Google Meet over time so that there will be only one platform for both consumers and enterprise customers. One advantage over other such relative application is that Google is keeping G suite and its related product as web first apps which will allow to always updated and easier to manage alternate to other similar Mac OS and Windows application.
On the bright side, Google is planning to integrate the Google Meet into both regular and Consumer Gmail addresses fully utilizing the Gmail’s power to push its integrated video conferencing application.
