Google Meet is going free for everyone.

Google Meet tackles Zoom by going completely free for all

Meet is one of several video chat apps Google offers: The company's Duo and Hangouts are free, but come with a fair number of limitations.

  • Hangouts only supports up to 25 participants
  • Duo only supports up to 12 participants. 

Google also recently added several new features to Meet, including a Zoom-like grid view with support for 16 participants at once, as well as a low-light mode and a noise cancellation feature.

Meet was formerly only available as a part of Google's G Suite business-oriented service package, which starts at $6 per month per person, but now it will be free to anyone with a Google account.
