Google Meet will limit free meetings to 60 minutes. One of the biggest advantages that Google Meet had over Zoom was the possibility of making free video calls and without a time limit. This made the application stand out among the many options that became popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Google has just announced the end of this feature.
Google Meet is an important communication solution. You can attend online classes by simply creating a Gmail account. Google Meet is also compatible with both computers and mobile devices.

However, the free version of Google’s video conferencing platform announced that it will apply time limits on meetings starting from September 30. That means, from now on, video calls will have a maximum duration of 60 minutes if you are not willing to pay.
Regarding the number of participants per meeting, it was revealed that the possibility of adapting designs to meetings, real-time subtitles, and the mosaic view option will be available still.
In addition, free Google Meet can be used on Android, iOS and in its web version when linked to a Gmail account. However, the meeting function without time limits, the noise blocking by artificial intelligence, the live broadcasts of video calls or the session recordings will once again be exclusive to the premium subscription. Google Meet will limit free meetings to 60 minutes, and to use the application’s full functions you need to get a premium packet.
