Google Meet is now available to the general public

Google Meet is a video conferencing service offered by Google dedicated to several participants.

While it was exclusively for G Suite customers, 6 million businesses and organizations, Google announced this week that Google Meet will be made available to everyone for free.

Its meetings can accommodate up to 100 people at a time, up to 60 minutes – and even more until September 30, 2020.

As explained by Google:

“Today we’re creating Google Meet, our premium video conferencing product, free for everyone, with availability in the coming weeks. From the beginning of May, anyone with an email address can sign up for and benefit greatly from Meet. Features are available to our business and educational users, such as simple scheduling and screen sharing, real-time captions, and layouts that adapt to your preferences, including an extended tiled view. ”

Since this announcement, it is very clear that Zoom is its main target, being at the center of the news, especially for its security vulnerabilities. The American giant did not hesitate to insist on the measures put in place to ensure the security of user data and thus respected the GDPR.
