Google Meet eliminates video calls without a time limit | Digital Trends Spanish

One of the main features of Google Meet, which gave it a slight advantage over Zoom, was that there was no time limit on group video calls. However, that no longer works and from now on, Google Meet calls from three or more participants are limited to 60 minutes.

This time limit is still slightly higher than Zoom, which allows calls of up to 40 minutes when three people (or more) are in a meeting. And in the event that a person requires more time and eliminates that one-hour limit, they will have to go to the cashier and pay for the $ 10 subscription of the service.

This subscription is called Google Workspace Individual and it was recently launched by Google, on a limited basis and in five countries: Brazil, Canada, the United States, Japan and Mexico. And in addition to the limited access to Meet, there are extra options in Calendar and a custom domain can also be used in the email account.

All of the above then means that Google Meet no longer offers the competitive advantages that allowed it to cope with Zoom throughout the pandemic. Originally, the video call time limit would be activated on September 30, 2020, but the company extended it until the end of March 2021 and then until the end of June, when the final change was made.

Still, these 60-minute max calls may not be a huge inconvenience for the more common users, who don’t use Meet for work meetings or the like. For them, the new Meet filters may be very useful, which were added precisely because the tool was thought to be too serious.
