Overall Satisfaction with Google Meet

We have tried this platform, but it lacks the features of other services such as Zoom. We used as a test for staff meetings. I do like the live captioning feature during meetings. It also has typical features you need like standard controls, screen sharing, messaging others, working across devices, and more.
  • Standard features.
  • Closed Captioning.
  • Integrates with most devices.
  • Security features.
  • Backgrounds.
  • Interaction.
  • No real ROI impact.
  • Saves on travel.
  • Saves on conferences and conventions.
As stated before we prefer Zoom. It has more features and our staff has simply grown used to Zoom and prefers this platform. Zoom continues to innovate almost every month. Our Zoom rep is very good and responsive. We tested Google Hangouts Meet after using Zoom and decided to stay with Zoom. Google Hangouts Meet lacks some features of Zoom. It works fine and would be a good option for almost any company, but we selected Zoom.

Zoom, Webex (formerly Webex Teams), BlueJeans Meetings
We have used and tried WebEx, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Zoom. Zoom is a verb like Google is to search. Zoom just has more features and they keep adding more every month. Almost all of our customers prefer Zoom, and even expect Zoom. Google Meet works fine, there are just more robust options.
