Good news. Google Meet extends the time limit for unlimited calling for all free accounts.
There is a small requirement to continue enjoying this feature, as we tell in the details below.
Unlimited video calls continue in the free version of Google Meet
Today would be the last day to enjoy unlimited Google Meet calls with a free account. This was determined by the Google team last year when they pushed back the original deadline, setting March 31 as the new deadline.
However, they have extended the deadline for users with free accounts to continue enjoying unlimited video calls for a couple more months, until next June. This was confirmed by the Google team on its Twitter account.
This modality will be applied as long as the video calls are initiated from the Google Meet version integrated into Gmail. Recall that calls without “time limit”, which translates as a maximum duration of 24 hours, is a feature that originally belongs to Google Meet premium accounts. For free accounts, video calls have a maximum duration of 60 minutes.
So you have two more months to continue communicating with your friends and family without being aware of the clock when you make a video call from Meet. And of course, it’s still ideal for all your work or study activities. Just remember to start the meeting from your Gmail account.
Google Meet has become one of the most popular options when looking for a video calling app. While Zoom or Microsoft Teams offer interesting features that adapt to different modalities, Meet has remained among the options of choice with updates that adjust to the needs of users.
