Overall Satisfaction with Google Hangouts Meet

This has been a great software, especially for someone who has a bunch of different calls throughout the day and week with clients who live in different time zones. My favorite aspect of Google Hangouts Meet is that it allows you to sync it directly with your calendar. This prevents calls from getting overlapped with others. It also makes it super easy to invite new clients to a call, and the record feature makes it perfect for those who want to go back and review what was discussed.
  • Easy to use and invite others to use
  • Easy to share your screen and record meetings
  • Syncs with your calendar, keeping things organized
  • Additonal cost for the record feature
  • Streamlined the communication process for phone calls and meetings
  • Included right within the Google Workspace, making it really convenient
  • Integrates with your calendar for easy initiation; invites attendees by asking if they can make it so it is easy to know if you need to potentially reschedule
I think it is the best option, personally. Zoom is a little more well known, I think but Google Hangouts Meet is so much more user friendly. As a company, we used to use Join.me, and I feel like it was glitchy and complicated to get clients on the platform. Google Hangouts Meet is easy to use, smooth, and super functional.
The easiest video communication software on the market. I would highly recommend it to anyone already using Gmail and who has to do a lot of phone calls or meetings virtually on a daily basis.
Very few issues, if any, with the platform, and I have never had any clients have issues using it at all.

Did Google Meet live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Google Meet go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Google Meet again?

Yes

I like Google Meet better than Zoom and other video conference software because of its simplicity. It is very convenient to invite clients to a chat via the Google Hangouts Meet link that you can include in an event with one click of a button. It also takes out any of the additional charges that would be accumulated by communicating with someone internationally; this easy-to-use software takes that out of the equation.
