Google Meet Is Now Free for Everyone

Google’s videoconferencing service was previously limited to enterprise and education customers via G Suite. Now, anyone with a Google account will be able to create free meetings with up to 100 people and no time restrictions. Users must be logged in to access meetings. This is to avoid privacy and safety issues such as Zoombombing, when an uninvited person joins a meeting. To further ensure privacy, those not directly invited by email will be placed in a green room where they must wait for host approval. Free access to Meet is set to last through September 30.
