It's great for virtually meeting with people in other cities/countries. It's terrific how they provide so many international numbers for people to use!

Google Meet

Google Meet is my go-to video conferencing call while having a team meeting. There is no hassle to start an impromptu meeting. One of my reasons behind using Google Meet in team meetings is that when one of the participants gets disconnected due to poor internet quality I don't have to accept them again while they rejoin the meeting. However, if I have to present something, the participants' screens sometimes become frozen. This is not an appropriate situation while giving a presentation because I've already moved ahead and my participants are stuck in some other irrelevant slide of my presentation.

Pros

FreeConference.com

  • You can subscribe in a couple clicks and that gives you access, for free, to unlimited conference calls within the US and a selection of other countries (premium accounts give access to all countries - but the free service is already quite amazing).
  • The quality of the calls is a sure benefit. One might expect for it to be poor as I did specifically because of the cost.
  • You can use your numbers without setting up a new conference call every time.
  • You can also schedule a conference and get reminded.

Google Meet

  • Low data usage. Works perfectly fine even on slow network.
  • No installation needed. Web version is all you need. Fully supported my major web browsers like Chrome & Edge.
  • Captions are great. Non-native English speakers may find it useful. Just turn on the Captions and it starts translating the audio in real-time.
  • Support background images. Definitely useful when we need to hide our room condition.
  • Breakout room, polls, Q&A options are added advantage.

Cons

FreeConference.com

  • Early on (many years ago), I occasionally had some trouble getting everyone onto the same call. But that's only happened a couple of times many moons ago.
Michelle Braun | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Meet

  • Meet as it comes doesn't have a great way to handle large meetings.
  • I don't like the way they hide the mute button. It's a disruptive view to mute/unmute.
  • Chat box is the only way to document collaborations within the meeting.

Google Hangouts Meet is easy to use and easy to access. I've experienced very few technical issues compared to other similar software options. It's a little less formal than Microsoft Teams but makes it easy to access other google items such as google drive and google docs. Meeting in hangout gives you an easy-to-use hub to not only meet for planning or team-building purposes but to easily share information that can help you with your meeting goals.

We have had to use this program with children as young as five through high school seniors. Additionally, both new and seasoned teachers with varying technological skills have used it. Across all circumstances, students and teachers are able to easily access meetings, schedule meetings, and revisit links as part of their classrooms.

When using Hangouts Meet at a company level, support is handled internally and any issues that need to be handled externally by Google have to be canalized through the IT department which can become tedious at times. Since there are not many issues when using the tool, this might not be as important

Alternatives Considered

FreeConference.com

I selected freeconferences.com at the time because I didn't have access to my webex account and I was crunched for time . I was a bit amazed/"Taken back" as i wondered why this wasn't protocol already. The platform is easy, free, a no-brainer.

The main positive feature in Google Meet over Zoom to me is the fact that Google meet can be seamlessly deployed in the browser with its full functionality. Unlike Zoom for which you need to download an extra application to use. This consequently makes workflow smooth when transitioning between something like emails and taking part in a meeting.

Return on Investment

FreeConference.com

  • BEST ROI ever! It's all free and has let me access people globally. Thanks!
Michelle Braun | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Meet

  • Negative: on each webinar someone from our team had to write manually the people that were participating and after that matching it with the registered people list. We wasted time. It could be easily resolved by adding the export list feature
  • Positive: Collaboration and internal meetings. Calendar integration helps us save time.
