Google decided to make Meet available without restrictions for all Gmail account holders amid the coronavirus pandemic’s gathering pace. During this time, many people worldwide had to work and study remotely, and personal contacts with family and friends were limited. Therefore, video conferencing services that help establish work processes, learn, or provide an opportunity to communicate, have become extremely popular. By removing the 60-minute call limit on Meet, Google has made its service significantly more popular.
Initially, the developers planned to return Meet to standard operation at the end of September last year. Still, later Google announced the extension of free and unlimited use of the service until March 31st. Now, all Meet users will be able to make calls for up to 24 hours until June 30 of this year, and it is possible that after that date, the service will remain free and unlimited.
