Google Meet users won’t be able to use the Video Meet app for an unlimited period of time from September 30. Because the free version of Google Meet has been set for a time frame of up to 60 minutes (One Hour).
In April, the company said that the deadline for the free version would be limited to 60 minutes. Though Google decided not to implement it before September 30 as more and more people were working from home due to the epidemic. By September 30, any user from the Google Account will be allowed to have free meetings with people up to 100 without a time frame.
“We don’t have anything to communicate regarding changes to the promo and advanced features expiring,” a Google spokesperson told The Verge in an email on Friday. “If this changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.”
Earlier, Google had added a new feature to its Meet video chatting platform. Under the extension or app, anyone with a Google Account could create free meetings with up to 100 people, and with no time limit. Google users will be able to see 49 participants simultaneously in auto and tiled layout options. The host can also be seen in its tile view while calling on Google meet. These two features are available for all customers of G Suite and users who have their own private account on Google.
Google said in a blog post that “You will now be able to see yourself in a tile view. This will make you feel that you are also part of that larger group, especially when you will take screenshots or photos”.
With this new feature, Google Meet users will also be able to combine the tiles they are looking for with a slider. According to Google, if there are many people, you can increase the number of tiles. If the Internet connection is weak, you can also reduce it, and you can also combine it accordingly each time you meet.
