Google Meet, a free-to-use business-focused video calling app that has found widespread use during the lockdown, is set to enforce a 60-minute time limit by September 30.
The Verge reported that the deadline of September 30 is also applicable to other features like access to advanced features for G Suite and G Suite for Education customers, including allowing meetings of up to 250 participants, live-streams of up to 100,000 people within a single domain, and the ability to save meeting recordings to Google Drive.
Meanwhile, Google this month introduced a new feature in its Meet app where the users can now see up to 49 people at the same time in the auto and tiled layout options. In addition, the company has added the ability to see the host of the meeting as a tile on the call. Both the features are now available to all G Suite customers and users with personal Google Accounts.
By the time they released the statement, Google Meet has been hosting 3 billion minutes of video meetings and seeing an increase of almost 3 million users every day. It translates to a rise in the video conferencing app's peak daily usage of about 30 times.
