because of its platform and opportunity to give the users.Google Meet provides a secure, easy-to-use, and accessible video conferencing platform for everyone. Free Google Meet to users are limited video call of an entire hour and may experience quality issues in the time of conferencing or meeting.and also it is more convenient for everyone who wants to participate or prepare meetings.

Google Hangouts Meet has integration with other Google Workspace products which stands as a unique feature [compared to] any other software available in the market. Also, it provides high data security with Google's data storage security. Zoom requires high internet connectivity bandwidth; comparatively higher than Google Hangouts Meet.

1) Comparitavely Google meet uses less amount of internet (or mobile data) as compared To Cisco Webex is the main reason for using Google Meet . 2) Moreover, participants need not to ask for permission to join even if they have left the call . They can simply do the same in Google Meet .

Because Meet is simple to use, you use it with weaker internet, you can quickly integrate it with your schedule and maintain a controlled meeting frequency. If you use G-suit as a whole, you have more control and integration of the tools, which makes it a lot easier, but Google meet in itself is a raffle tool for meetings.

We haven't actually selected Google Meet as a replacement for the others - rather each has its own niche.

As this review heavily emphasizes, this is our choice for quick meetings with 3rd parties that do not already have and use Zoom or GoTo Meeting. GoTo Meeting is far better with anonymous meetings, allows screen control and does excellent recordings. Teams is mostly for internal use.

I prefer Zoom, but Google Meet is a good alternative. Zoom is more secure and easier to manage. Zoom has more customization and I trust it more, as too many Google apps get changed without you knowing.

Each product has its own pros and cons for example we cannot use the previously mentioned product for quick meetings because it's a bit complicated than Google hangout means so we tend to rely on each product depending on the scenario/condition that we will be facing, for example, a virtual conference requires a major platform with better futures and wide range of control.

If I was to choose, I would go for MS Teams or Skype as it helps me to keep minutes or other notes and get back to them whenever I need. I am not a huge fan of Zoom however depends on how the organiser sets it up it allows downloading chat/minutes that I personally find very useful. Also, both Zoom and Teams allow using of breakout rooms - helpful for bigger meetings.

Each of these tools have their own advantages but Google meet is a great tool when it comes to having an entire package right from sending out an email to syncing the calendar and then having the meetings.

Google Meet has almost all the same features that other applications offer, basically you dot need to worry about missing features since you're at the same level. Google meet has a modern design, light application with a very easy UI.

The decision was easy to make, although Google Hangouts Meet, Skype and Zoom met the initial objective, we were inclined to choose Google Hangouts Meet because it not only does a much better job, it is easy to use, it's secure, and guarantees confidentiality in all connections, it also matched the needs of our business process. The icing in the decision-making being its Gsuite integrations and pricing.

I feel all the other options have a huge list of features. Some of them support host permission sharing, large audience, whiteboards, anonymous participants etc. But the whole point of using Google Meet is the ease of access. With no installation required, it covers almost all the basic features we need to have a smooth and successful meeting.

Webex Meetings has a very old UI and also has connectivity issues most of the time. Google Hangouts Meet is free of cost and on the other hand, Webex Meetings are paid and do not offer much in return. Further, it also does not have such features as google hangouts meet.

  • Zoom
Well we switched from Zoom because of paying issue. While Google Hangouts Meet is almost free there zoom needs extra charge to long meetings. And Zoom couldn’t meet up our common interests while meeting with foreign clients always. Performing Zoom meetings with phone isn’t flexible while hangouts is best. And we think google meet is more secured than other meeting softwares.

The price will always stand out, as it's cheaper than the other software out there for small meetings (less than 100 participants).
The connection to the servers is great as expected
The features are not really the best of Google Hangouts Meet for teaching kinesthetic learners, but overall it makes the job easier for everyone.

To maintain in-depth and frequent communication, we use Google Hangouts Meet because the conversation is stable and flexible. We can achieve our goals through effective communication; communication with suppliers and purchasers is significant.

The benefit for google hangouts meet is its seamless integration with Gmail and since most of the users have a Gmail account, it becomes a fast and reliable experience. Nevertheless, other tools have a better UI and feature list as compared to google hangouts meet. The UI for meet has been refreshed recently so it's moving in the right direction.

Easy access to the Google Hangouts Meet service makes all the difference. Compared to other video calling services, Google Hangouts Meet is much more intuitive and easy for users to access. The only negative point is the fact that we are unable to record the meetings, which makes it difficult to document or retrieve any point discussed with the client.
