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.

Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
