Google’s video conferencing tool, Google Meet won’t impose 60-minute time limit on calls until March 31, 2021. Previously, Google had announced to end unlimited meetings on free plans after September 30.
“As we look ahead to a holiday season with less travel and important milestones like family reunions, PTA meetings and weddings hosted over video, we want to continue helping those who rely on Meet to stay in touch over the coming months,” said Google Meet’s Group Product Manager, Samir Pradhan, in a blog post. “As a sign of our commitment, today we’re continuing unlimited Meet calls (up to 24 hours) in the free version through March 31, 2021 for Gmail accounts.”
However, Google is sticking to its plan on updating G Suite and G Suite for Education. Customers will lose free access to some advanced Google Meet features such as hosting meetings with up to 250 participants at a time, and the ability to save meeting recordings to Google Drive.
Google has been actively updating its Meet video calling service to keep up with competitors like Zoom. It recently added background noise filtering to Meet on both Android and iOS.
