FREE Google Meet Premium Video Conferencing for Everyone! The company announces that as of May 4, Google Meet, a tool previously exclusive to corporate customers, will be made available to individuals, allowing a wide audience to make group video calls.
Google meet is now available for unlimited use by individuals up until September 30. Afterwards, meetings will be limited to 60 minutes for the free product.
Note – Meet was previously available as part of G Suite, our collaboration and productivity solution for businesses, organizations and schools. The basic version of G Suite costs $8.40 per user per month.
A Google account will now be able to create free meetings of up to 100 people that can last any amount of time — though after September 30th it may restrict meeting length to 60 minutes.
If you have an existing Google Account (for example, if you’re a @gmail.com user), sign in at meet.google.com to get started. If you don’t have a free Google Account, it only takes a minute to create one using your work or personal email address of choice (we require this step as a security measure, and you’ll only need to do this once).
Meetings are limited to 60 minutes for the free product, though we won’t enforce this time limit until after Sept. 30. Creating a trusted meeting space is important, and being mindful when sharing meeting links in public forums can help create a safe experience for all attendees.
