Google Meet limit for longer calls extended until June
Zoom, Skype and Google Meet became the only places we could hang out, so Google’s move is much appreciated.
The “promotion” was supposed to end in September 2020, but they pushed it back until March 2021, so people can see friends and family during the holidays.
Now, they’ve decided to extend it even further - until June 2021. Their Twitter post doesn’t explain why they chose to extend it until June, but it’s not hard to imagine: The number of vaccinated people in the U.S. and around the world is expected to reach its peak in the summer, which will help to gradually ease out COVID restrictions.
Hopefully, Google won’t have a reason to further extend their kind gesture. Then again, we sometimes use Google Meet for our internal catch-ups, so it’s very good to know that we can continue doing so for free!
