What is Google Meet and how does it work?

During this lockdown period of COVID-19, it has been tough for everyone to work and communicate with each other for the business meeting and regular meetup communication. People have been using various methods of communication but are facing some distractions like video lagging due to internet fluctuations. Out of many software being used, many of us might have heard of Google Meet. The video communication service developed and maintained by Google.

While we hear the name of other video communication service providers name, Google Meet has emerged as one of the most used video conferencing systems. Many video conferencing software starts to show some problems when being used by a large number of people in a single meeting. Well, Google eliminates this problem and allows users to make video calls up to 30 users per high-definition meeting. 

 Google Meet, not just allows a meeting to be held perfectly, it also allows users to host and join the pre-scheduled meetings from calendar events, choose a link, enter a code and even dial in from their phones. 

 In this blog, let us together see what Google Meet offers to us and how does it vary from other video conferencing tools.

Google Meet is developed and maintained by Google. Since we already have heard a name Google before, let me also give a brief overview of the company. Google is a multinational, publicly-traded agency built across the company’s hugely popular search engine. Google’s other businesses encompass internet analytics, cloud computing, advertising technology, and internet app, browsers, and working system improvement.

Why should we use Google Meet? 

The major features that separate Google Meet from other video conferencing platforms are:

• Encrypted video meetings making it safe to use. The system is updated frequently making it more secure.

•Large number of participants can join a meeting. Google Meet says that a host can invite up to 250 participants to a meeting being either the user to join be from the same organization or outside the organization.

 •Sharing a link to invite a team member with just one click from a web browser or mobile application make it easy access on any device.

 • Presentation of slides, documents, and many more in an efficient way is the most beautiful feature Google Meet provides. This can be done by sharing a screen.

How does Google Meet work? 

As stated earlier, Google meet is a video communicating software where user can securely join, collaborate, and rejoice from anywhere. With Google Meet, everybody can adequately create and be part of exceptional video conferences for companies of up to 250 human beings. 

The installation of Google meet is easy for mobile applications and if the user doesn’t want to install the mobile versions, they can go through the web, and directly communicate without having extra installation in the system. The host can pre-schedule the meeting and invite the team members that make it more convenient and attracts the user to use the system in frequent purpose.

Final Thoughts

I found Google meet to be the easiest to use and secure software for organizing an office meeting. The meetings held even with large numbers of people had no video lagging. It was smooth and the presentation could be done more easily and fascinating than other video conferencing platforms.

It is quite simple and realistic to apply, and the method for starting a call and welcoming contributors could be very intuitive. One feature that becomes continually present on the Meet and that becomes later carried out inside the different video call equipment is to accept or now not the participation of the guests. This greatly will increase the security of the decision and forestalls unknown intruders in your meeting. This becomes continually a totally strong criterion whilst we concept of a tool to keep agency conferences. The mixing and adoption of the tool turned into very clean, as the personnel’ email debts have been already linked to G Suite (google carrier).
