For an internal more confidential meeting , Google meet is the best place as it offers a sense of confidentiality and the secured number of users who can actually access the meeting whereas a more interactive digital workshop type session is where google meet is the least prefered option.

Google Hangouts Meet allows others to communicate and provide direct instruction at any time point of time and from any location. Communication is made easy and manageable with just a simple open tap. Without any interruptions, communication is simplified and allows professional and personal communication needs to be met with the ease of multi-tasking steps.

Less Suited for - For Recording Purposes as majority times recordings feature is not available to common users. - For Conducting webinars that have more than 500 participants , it is not recommended for that purposes.

I think Google Meet is appropriate for many occasions: short or long meetings, sales or support presentations. I think the only possibility that is not appropriate is for many people and if it's a very quick call, you have to create a room and so on, sometimes you're in a hurry and you just want to call fast and talk.

Google meet is well suited where you can mute or unmute yourself. To accomplish this, click the "Mute" button at the bottom of the video window. However, there are situations in which it might be beneficial to mute other participants as well. If someone is generating an excessive amount of noise through their microphone, or if they are unaware that their microphone is on, you may want to silence it. If you are in a video meeting and someone is making that kind of distracting background noise, you have the option to silence that person and you can anyone from the meeting.It is simple to single out an individual while you are in the midst of a gathering. To pin a participant's thumbnail image, click the Pin Pin button. After that, you will see that individual at the very top of the list.

Google Meet is very well suited when you need to interact virtually with the people as it provides a wholesome experience to all the people in the google Meet. It is less appropriate when we need a huge virtual gathering as there is some upper limit for the number of participants.

We use Google Meet as one of the our options for meetings with 3rd parties (meetings that include people outside of our company). The zero-install client makes this a friendly choice, but ONLY when we KNOW we will not require remote control. The close caption feature is nice - but a but gimicky, it doesn't add much value.

Google Meet is a great solution for small and medium businesses looking for a video conferencing platform which integrates into their existing tech and is front facing the public. Google is particularly easy to use compared to competitors, as much as it does not have all the customization other providers have.

I prefer Google Meet over any other webcam program. In the past, I couldn't make it to my Zoom meeting because I had to download and install the program, which required approval and password for the computer admin. It took at least 20 mins to get Zoom installed. I prefer Google Meet because I do not have to download and install anything. It pops up in a second tab and I can simultaneously work on other tabs and programs.

Google Meet is great for universities, colleges, business and other organizations. According to my experience there is no cons of this app. One of the most loved Google Meet app features is an unlimited number of meetings like we can use Google Meet to connect with anyone we like for example: family, colleagues, co-workers, friends and also online international conferences. We just need a Google account to sign in and join the meeting.

I would give a 9.5 rating to Google Meet. It is well suited for all the basic communication and connecting between the person will happen within a second and also since many people have Gmail so there won't be any necessity to create separate credentials for this meet and it is easy to understand for everyone.

Google Meet was a perfect video conferencing solution for us during our training sessions. The only problems encountered were due to weak signals, which sometimes required us to turn off our video. All features worked very well in tying together a team across four different time zones. I was very impressed with the tool's performance.

If we want to conduct a virtual event we tend to rely on other platforms other than Google hangout meet because it does not provide wide options of control for the admins and the host of the lectures/meetings so as a scenario when we are going to conduct an event we tend to use Google hangout me for quick meetings between the staff members.

Google Hangouts Meet is very well suited to have a one-off or a series of meetings with the smaller audience (when we do not expect to use breakouts rooms) that do not include keeping in-call messages. I found also Google Hangout Meet quite a universal tool that does not require any specific software apart from the one that we tend to use on daily basis. If we want to have an ongoing conversation and everything in one place it may not be the best solution.

If you are a "Gmail" company then Google Hangouts Meet is the best collaboration and communication tool to use. Having Google Hangouts Meet integrated into the email interface makes its use very easy.

Google Hangouts Meet is best when it is to be used as the primary communication tool between the clients and the users of the company.
It is great as it allows the user to seamlessly switch from Google Calendar to the meeting and the users can manage not just the invitees but also the other non invited people.

Google Meet is perfect for different scenarios and not only for business but it can also be used for Students groups as well. If a corporation has Google account the best is to take advantage of this free tool which is included in the license. There is one thing that Google meet can improve and is the PIN to set private meetings, within an organization people with the link can access (user can be blocked) but a PIN feature, it will make the meeting more secure when accessing from the app or web.

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.

Hangouts Meet mainly suits my need to establish a connection with my colleagues and clients and hold quick meetings. It also helps that I know that all of the parties involved are comfortable with using Google's platform. I like the fact that Google is incorporating and connecting its software like Google Calendar.

Google Meet is ideal for a mid-size company. It has been working well for us and it meets all our connectivity needs. Google Meet is also suitable for people using Google products because it easily integrates with other Google products.

I feel its not really useful for online teaching as it misses on whiteboard. But it still a very good tool for quick meetings and presentations. I feel its best suited whenever you are in hangouts chat and want to have a quick meeting.
Its integration with calendar makes it really useful. This makes it easier to include meeting URL in the invite. It also get the attachments automatically from your calendar when you are in meeting.
It works even when you have a slow network. The mobile application is equally useful and dependable.

Google Hangouts Meet is the perfect application to use when you have a low budget for video conferences or company meetings as the application is itself free of cost to use. The add-on google calendar also helps to arrange the meetings. Further, it is very convenient to conduct online classes for school or college-going students too.

In case of any meeting that you wanted to perform with any parts of the world, it is very much able to do best. It’s safe and secured. It’s almost free of costs that's the best thing of google meets. Hanging out from anyplace where net is available suits well. Video, audio quality, sounds, sharing, and receiving of anything is flexible. Recording of important data or file is supportive. But sometimes permission access cost you some times needed to be more quickly.

For meetings that are quick, simple, and without a lot of people, is perfect. Everyone can join quickly and control their screen how they like it, also there isn't a lot of setups needed.
Webinars or presentations where participation is not completely necessary are great in Google Hangouts Meet too.
For training classes where the participants need to control the presenter's computer or someone would like to annotate directly in someone else's computer, it might not be ideal, as you could do it downloading an extension, but it's not integrated.
