Zoom alternative Google Meet if now FREE!

The stunning Google Meet video meeting service is going free! Google’s Meet service is currently only for premium users via GSuite membership. In the times of a pandemic, most of the offices are shutting down giving their employees work from home and work online now. Even educational institutes are adopting online classes via various video conferencing apps and services. Zoom is one of the most popular video conferencing service right now that took the world by storm in the past couple of months. It became so due to the ease of use and also offers a free service. In order to compete with Zoom, Google is giving away the Google Meet premium service for free to everyone across the globe. See how to register for a free Google Meet subscription.

Google Meet required an active Gsuite subscription to start a video conference. Before this, a free member could only join a meeting. This is changing now. In these dire times, Google made a move to give away the Meet video conferencing service for free. Most of the educational institutes, businesses, corporate, etc. can now settle for a trusted video conferencing app. You can even use it for personal use.

Google recently published a blog post that the Google Meets service is completely free from today and rolling out across the globe. This is good because Zoom does not have a good track record when it comes to privacy. The company got many backlashes for leaking data and allegedly selling data to Facebook.
