Since the start of the corona pandemic, free Google Meet users have had unlimited video calling with no limits until September 30. After that, the free version would fall back to sessions of maximum 60 minutes. Google is now extending the unlimited version until March 31, 2021
Gmail accounts that use Google Meet for free did not have to take the standard time limit of 60 minutes per video call into account. Originally, that restriction would come into effect again on September 30, but Google insists that the coronavirus is still dominating the world and that video calling is more essential than ever.
With the free version you can now use an unlimited number of minutes per call (maximum 24 hours) until March 31, 2021.
Google Meet was made available for free to everyone in late April and consistently rolled out updates to keep up with Microsoft Teams and Zoom in terms of functionality. Two weeks ago it rolled out a grid view with 49 people and you can now blur your background to protect your private situation at home.
In the Gmail app on iOS and Android, Google Meet got a prominent place at the bottom last summer. You can now easily start or schedule video calls and share the dial-in details. Google is also rolling out a noise canceling feature to the Google Meet mobile app today to filter out background noise during video calls.
G Suite does change free policies
In any case, paying G Suite users can make unlimited use of Google Meet and do not have to worry that their video calls will be limited to 60 minutes after March 31, 2021. G Suite customers can now also chat and create rooms in the Gmail app to work better together.
G Suite users will lose free access to certain advanced Google Meet features that were temporarily made available for free until September 30. For example, they can no longer organize virtual meetings for up to 250 participants free of charge and keeping meetings in Google Drive becomes paying again, according to The Verge.
