Last week when you logged into your Gmail account you probably noticed you now have Meet in your lefthand sidebar.
Google released Meet for free to everyone earlier this month. The Zoom rival was announced in a blog post on the Google blog.
From the article:
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.
Now that the rollout we announced two weeks ago is complete, anyone with an email address can sign up and get started at meet.google.com, for free. And to make meetings even more accessible and helpful, in the coming days you’ll also be able to use Meet directly in Gmail.
Coinciding with the launch GoogleMeet.com actually expired and was caught at DropCatch.
No surprise a UDRP was filed on Wednesday on the domain name GoogleMeet.com.
