Google not only lets you start Meet sessions from Android, iOS, or Chrome on the web, but also lets you access Meet from other apps.
Google Meet started as a video conferencing solution for people in organizations that use G Suite. Then, in late April 2020, Google announced that Meet would soon be available to use for free to anyone with an email address and internet access. The change makes Google’s scalable, stable, and secure modern meeting app available to everyone.
But, Google also has woven Meet connections into other apps, such as Gmail, Google Chat, and Google Classroom. These interconnections give people who use Google’s tools a wide range of options for collaboration. People may select whichever tool best helps them accomplish a task, then move from typed text to Google Meet when merited — with all the emotion that video can convey.
The many paths to Google Meet, as detailed below, suggest that Meet video conferencing will remain an essential Google app for many years.
Note: If you use an organizational account, your G Suite administrator might manage or restrict some settings for apps mentioned below. If you can’t access a capability, check with your G Suite administrator.
