The new crown virus pandemic has forced many people to attend teleconferences or online classes at home, but in response to the rise of Zoom, search giant google also wants to attract more popularity for Google Meet.In recent weeks, Google has introduced many improvements and new features to its video conferencing software. Now, Google meet is free for all.
In March, zoom became the cloud video chat software of choice for many people. Despite some security problems encountered at the same time, the experience still has greater advantages than competing products.
As for Google Meet, it was first unveiled as part of an enterprise-level videoconferencing solution. But soon Google announced that it would offer all users free access to advanced features.
In recent weeks, Google meet has begun to integrate some of the more popular features of zoom. Although it is not possible to support hundreds of people on the same screen, at least the number of tiled views has been increased from 4 to 16.
If you don't want to use zoom for some reason, consider Google meet, which is now free to all Google users.
Interested friends can log in to meet.google.com and ask the host to pull themselves into an existing meeting group or create a new one directly.
The moderator can choose to accept or reject a user's request for a meeting according to the circumstances, and select in multiple virtual background boards.
Of course, Google's existing product line is still a bit messy. Besides Google meet, there are hangouts and Google duo. It remains to be seen how many users will be attracted from zoom.
