Another free videoconferencing platform is available for everyone. Google has joined the likes of Facebook and Zoom by making its Meet business videoconferencing solution free for all from May.
Anyone with a Google email address can sign up for Meet and schedule video meetings for up to 100 people without any time cap. All participants must log in with a Google account. After September, free accounts can only run meetings of up to an hour.
“Meet is designed, built and operated to be secure at scale. Privacy and security are paramount, no matter if it’s a doctor sharing confidential health information with a patient, a financial advisor hosting a client meeting, or people virtually connecting with each other for graduations, holidays and happy hours,” said Javier Soltero, Vice President and General Manager of G Suite at Google.
“Our approach to security is simple: make products safe by default. We designed Meet to operate on a secure foundation, providing the protections needed to keep our users safe, their data secure, and their information private,” he added.
