Back in April, Google had announced unlimited usage of Meet for video meetings. And looking at its growth over the past few months, it seems Google has decided to push the idea a little longer. According to Google, people can benefit from using the free Meet service during the festive period. And any extra push to appeal to users will most likely work in its favor. After all, Zoom for free users limits meetings up to 45 minutes. To counter that, Meet video calls for unlimited time is a sweet deal indeed.
