Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 0 seconds

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, people are staying inside their homes and working remotely which led to a tremendous spike in the user base of video conferencing apps. Zoom and Microsoft Teams were extremely popular in early times of the pandemic but now Google has now made its tool more widely accessible.

To garner more users for Google Meet, Google earlier this month announced that it will offer it for free to everyone instead of just G-Suite customers till September 30th. After this announcement, Google’s enterprise video conferencing app which had 5 Million installs on Play Store in April this year rose to 50 Million installs on May 17th, according to the data from AppBrain.

Google is also making its tool more feature-loaded. Recently it has added 3 new features in the app which are AI-enhanced low-light mode, tab-focused presentation mode to present any specific window in the meeting and a noise cancellation feature to omit background noises. 

Other features of Google Meet includes screen sharing and simple scheduling, real-time captions, and layouts that adapt to the preferences of users. Google Meet is now also integrated with Gmail so that users can start or join video conferencing right from their Gmail accounts.
