Overall Satisfaction with Google Hangouts Meet

Hangouts Meet is our go to option when it comes to a quick call or discussion. Apart from one on one audio/video calls, we use it to setup meetings in the team. Its used in the whole organization. It helps us with quick and easy connectivity with each other, let it be amongst the team or with the customers.
  • 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.
  • Its quick and easy to connect. Saves time.
  • The integration with Google Suite is always handy.
I feel all the other options have a huge list of features. Some of them support host permission sharing, large audience, whiteboards, anonymous participants etc. But the whole point of using Google Meet is the ease of access. With no installation required, it covers almost all the basic features we need to have a smooth and successful meeting.

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.
