  • Can allow multiple participants including externals
  • Can share documents during the meeting or share screen
  • Can manage other participants
  • Can now include CC
  • Can be used from Mobile Devices
  • I would like to see and standalone desktop application (not an extension)
  • If the app could have a widget to see open contacts or calendar would be good but is not relevant at all
  • A PIN protection feature will be good to have more private meetings.

  • First off, the quality of the call is pretty good, especially when all of us are working remotely.
  • We can easily schedule our meeting in Google Calendar.
  • Sending an invitation link is easy.
  • What makes Google Meet stand out from other video conferencing tools is that we can use it for an unlimited time, even if we use the free account.
  • There is no hand raise feature in a normal account on Google Meet, unlike in Zoom where participants can raise hands in meetings hosted from a normal account.
  • Having a grid view feature would take Google Meet to another level.
  • The meeting recording option is hard to find.

  • 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.
  • Not suited when we have to address a huge set of people. We usually face problems when we have more than 60 participants and prefer other platforms.
  • Each participant is shown as a tile which could have been made resizable.
  • Recording is like a basic need. It should be made available to free users as well.

  • It’s a very well decorated and one kind of classic softwares.
  • It’s based on cloud basis so easily can use from anywhere you wanted.
  • Video quality is satisfied.
  • The other features including sharing files is also very easy.
  • It’s nonetheless a very well performing software.
  • Sometimes too much load of audience make some difficulties to perform any meeting as video interrupted.
  • And sometimes audio quality differs slightly late to reach.

  • First and foremost, it's free. It has a limited amount of users and time, but the value is great.
  • It's easy to access, as you don't have to download any application and the connection to the servers is great.
  • The user interface is simple and clear for everyone, you may not be able to use it with children, but everyone is able to read and act accordingly when performing a task (sharing screens, sharing files, chatting, turning features off and on, etc.).
  • You can use features in Google's portfolio to your advantage while using it
  • It doesn't have all the features that other meeting/training options have, like annotations that are easy to use or remote control when sharing a screen
