Google Meet limited to 60 mins on free plans starting September 30
Google has recently announced a 60-minute time limit on free version of Google Meet.
Back in April, Google has offered Google Meet premium features for free use, allowing unlimited-time meetings in its Google Meet video chat platform for users until September 30. Those with a Google account could create meetings with up to 100 people, and with a maximum time limit of one hour after September 30.
Google has also shared with The Verge through an email that there are no plan changes yet. “We don’t have anything to communicate regarding changes to the promo and advanced features expiring,” a Google spokesperson told The Verge. However, also mentioned, “If this changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.”
Moreover, access to advanced features for G Suite and G Suite for Education customers which include meetings of up to 250 participants, live-streams of up to 100,000 people within a single domain, and meeting recordings to Google Drive will no longer be free starting September 30. These features are usually offered through the G Suite “enterprise” which costs USD 25 per month.
