Google Meet users can make unlimited Video Calls until March 31

Published

Google is extending the free longer calls in its Meet service until March 31, 2021. The company said that the feature which was to expire at the end of September will now continue to work as it is.

“As a sign of our commitment, today we’re continuing unlimited Meet calls (up to 24 hours) in the free version through March 31, 2021, for Gmail accounts,” Google said in a blog post.

Gmail users can make use of Meet to make video calls directly from their inbox.

“We’ve also added a ton of experiences to Meet to make connecting more fun and more productive, too. You can now see your family on the big screen when you cast your calls to your TV, or join hands-free on your Nest Hub Max. Jump on the call without worrying about the holiday wrapping paper mess behind you with background blur, or take trivia night to the next level by seeing 49 of your competitors (and yourself) at the same time. You can even keep score using our collaborative digital whiteboard,” Google wrote in its blog post.

It is worth noting that Google with Meet competes with the likes Zoom. Zoom, in comparison, offers free users a limited 40-minute call time.

Google said it was making the announcement because “for many of us, it’s difficult to see each other in person these days (and that) video is now playing a crucial role in helping us connect.”

Furthermore, Google Meet’s group product manager Samir Pradhan affirmed in his blogpost that as the season of holidays and festivities arrives, Meet is committed to helping those who rely upon video calls to remain in touch with siblings, for conducting family reunion, PTA meetings, and weddings in coming months.

Besides that, Google has also introduced a slew of interesting features to the app. Recently, it has enabled machine learning-based noise cancellation feature on all Android and iOs devices. The noise cancellation feature was previously available only for G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for education, subscribers.

With its growing foot-print amongst video calling applications, the app has registered 100 million downloads till now. The meet has also rolled out innovative updates bringing all-new background blur features that may avoid showcasing the embarrassing backgrounds of our homes. Besides that, it has also brought Chromecast support to the app along with the whiteboard feature. It has also enabled the Zoom-like feature of dividing participants into the 49-people galleries for seamless conversation.

As reported by The Verge, Google said that it is not extending Meet’s features of hosting a 250-participant meeting along with saving of recorded videos on Google drive for the customers of G Suite for education. That means users of this platform are all set to lose access to these upgraded features.
