A new statement has been issued on the successful Google Meet application for online video conferencing. As this statement shows, there will be a new restriction on the use of free Google Meet. After earlier statements from Google, expectations seem to have changed.
Time limit for free use of Google Meet
First of all, at the beginning of the pandemic process, Google made an important statement about the Meet application. It was stated that not only business accounts but also free individual accounts can use the online conference application. After this announcement, Zoom started to reach more users as a competitor.
Now a statement has been made that the use of free accounts will be limited to 60 minutes. According to Google’s statement, from November 1, 2020, the maximum conference duration of free Google Meet usage will be set at 1 hour.
Until now, free users could start video conferencing with up to 100 people for an unlimited time. In fact, there was a limit on the duration, not the number of people. It is also a matter of curiosity whether there will be any new restrictions in the coming days.
It looks like Zoom will continue to increase its influence against Google in October 2020. New information will remain on the agenda for the next few days.
