About Google Meet

Google Meet is a video-communication service developed by Google. It is one of two apps that constitute the new version of Google Hangouts, the other being Google Chat. Google planned to begin retiring the classic version of Hangouts in October 2019.

Initially Google ran Meet as a commercial service; in April 2020 Google started rolling it to free users as well, causing speculation about whether the consumer version of Google Meet would accelerate the deprecation of Google Hangouts.

Google Meet is the alternative to ZOOM.
