“We’ve re-engineered Google Meet, originally built for secure business meetings, to make it free and available to all. Since making Meet's advanced features free for all G Suite and G Suite for Education users in March, we've seen daily usage grow by 30x, with Meet hosting 3 billion minutes of video meetings daily. Last month, we were adding roughly 3 million new users every day. That's why we're expanding the offering to more people around the world, “Javier Soltero Vice President & GM, G Suite had said in a blog post.
Till date, no security flaws or bugs have been found in Meet, unlike Zoom. Users can access Google Meet for free on the web at meet.google.com and via mobile apps for iOS or Android.
