Google Meet available for free to everyone

Google Meet: Google definitely knows how to take advantage of security vulnerabilities found in Zoom and recent status from the house caused by the pandemic.

The company from Mountain View announced today that it has the free Google Meet video conferencing service for everyone. The Google Meet video calling service will be gradually available in the coming days, the company says.

"From the beginning of May, anyone with an email address can sign up for the Meet service and enjoy many of the features available to business and education package users," G Suite VP Javier Soltero said in a post on company blog.

The rest of the announcement highlights how secure the Meet program is and how it was developed with security in mind.Google_Meet

So Google Meet seems to be a viable alternative. Its application is simple and you can use it with a Google account, which you probably already have.

However, there are reasons why you may want to choose something else, such as Jitsi meet, which is open source, end-to-end encrypted and does not require the use of an account.

The first reason is the trust in products from smaller developer studios, which leads to competition, which in turn can lead to better products. Also, Google is not exactly the company you can trust your private data to, although I think the app it offers is more secure than Zoom

Of course, Google's decision to offer a premium service for free temporarily is a good marketing tactic to steal the "shine" of Zoom and get more users to a service that ultimately intends to charge.

Do not hesitate to take advantage of the offer, as most will find the Google Meet service very easy to use.

But do not laugh: You are still the product. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
