What we are going to be talking about is how you can use Google Meet App and Web that serves as a business-friendly alternative to Google Hangouts, the company’s consumer-focused messaging, voice and video chat application.
What you should know is that It is Google’s paid video conferencing software, provided as part of G Suite. If you use Gmail with a company email address, you’re already a paid G Suite user, meaning you can use Google Meet Apps to create or host online meeting via meet.google.com. If you don’t have a GSuite account, you can join the meetings though, if invited.
Google Meeting Capacity
Meet supports high-def video meetings with up to 250 participants (for GSuite users on the Gsuite Enterprise Plan). Like Hangouts(Capacity is 25 People max), Meet also offers group video calls, not just video chat, but in an expanded capacity
Google Meet main screen displays a list of your scheduled meetings, along with a button you can click to join or start a meeting. There is also the settings icon which you can click to adjust your camera, microphone and speaker options.
How To Join Google Meet App and Web Meeting Sessions
You can join a video meeting powered by Google Meet through :
- web browser and mobile app
- Google Calendar

You Dont Need
You don’t need a Google Account to participate in Meet video meetings via your web browser but, if you don’t have a Google Account, the meeting organizer or someone from the organization must grant you access to the meeting.

Is Google Meet Free?
Please be informed that the Google meet is not free and our answer is No.
To set up and host a Google Meet session, you need to have a paid G Suite account , which costs $6 a month at its “basic” level. Anyone with a standard Google account can join and participate in Google Meet meetings, however.
