Overall Satisfaction with Google Hangouts Meet

Google Meet is being used by my organisation for its simplicity and stable communication.
It's very easy to enter the meeting and get started. The screen sharing feature works perfectly to help conduct conference effectively. Clients and trainees can also use realtime speech to text feature even in the version. The time limit in the free version is 60 minutes which is enough to run a training session and online classes. The app takes a very small space and runs smoothly even in low end devices.
  • Their Speech to Text feature is very useful.
  • The shared screen can be zoomed and the contents get more detailed which helps the user to notice small details.
  • The video feed is very stable and clear unlike others video conference apps.
  • If you get kicked out of meeting due to bad network you can easily rejoin without any hassle.
  • Sometimes the app closes suddenly.
  • The free version has fewer features.
  • My organisation's services were halted due to the pandemic but using Google Hangouts Meet we were able to resume our services form home and the cash flow has been improving since then.
  • My teaching job has also been resumed thanks to Google meet.
  • It has helped me earn money again but this time by sitting at home.
On comparison Microsoft Teams has a lot more features and can prove to be more effective but Google Hangouts Meet is a lot more easy to use and has a free version for everyone. The service is more stable than of Microsoft Teams.
Overall, it a great app. It ticks all the boxes and help to establish good relationship between you and your clients and trainees. It might have some shortcomings but they are not major.
It's versatile and stable.
