You’ll soon be able to access Google Meet for free even if you’re not a G Suite customer: Starting in early May, you’ll be able to sign up for Meet as long as you have a Gmail account. Some of the features you can enjoy include the ability to create and host meetings with up to 100 participants by going to Meet’s website or using its iOS or Android app.
You’ll also be able to start and join meetings straight from Google Calendar, use real-time captions and display an expanded tile view layout. Free account meetings will be limited to 60 minutes per session, but Google won’t enforce that rule until after September 30th, giving you as much time as you need for work-from-home conferences. The tech giant says it will gradually expand Meet’s availability, though, so you may not be able to use it as the same time as everyone else. To get a notification once you can start using it, simply sign up for updates on this page.
