Google has made its Meet video conferencing app completely free and anyone with an email address can sign up at meet.google.com and get started. According to Javier Soltero Vice President & GM, G Suite, people will soon see Meet directly through their Gmail account. Since making Meet’s advanced features free for all users of G Suite and G Suite for Education in March, the tech giant has seen a 30-fold rise in regular usage, with Meet hosting 3 billion minutes of video meetings every day.
“We added approximately 3 million new users per day last month. That’s why we are extending the service to more people around the world,” Soltero said.
Ths is how Google Meet works.

You can also easily join meetings shared with you by entering a meeting code. And you can plan video meetings and invite others directly from Google Calendar.
“Anyone can use Meet`s simple scheduling and screen sharing, real-time captions, and layouts that adapt to your preference, including an expanded tiled view?all built on Google`s secure, reliable global infrastructure,” said the company.
