Google has another video chat tool available for everyone. In addition to the mobile app-focused duo app, private individuals also have Google Meet.
Google has responded to the currently strong demand and announced another business tool for private individuals. That was the case two weeks ago. In the meantime, we are a few steps further, Google has announced in its own blog. Google Meet for Video Chat is now no longer only available to business customers, but also to all private users with their own email addresses. It took two weeks for the international rollout.
Google Meet anticipates Messenger Rooms
In March, Google recorded an increase in daily use by a factor of 30. Last April, 3 million new users are said to have been added every day. Although the current phase will come to an end again, interest in video chats is likely to be great in the future. Google has therefore also pushed ahead with the integration into other services. Meet will soon be available as a shortcut for everyone in Gmail and Calendar.

Google Meet is of course not only available as a web version in the browser. There are also corresponding apps for Android and iOS devices. Perhaps you have already reacted in advance to what Facebook has in store for its users with its messenger rooms. In the next few days, Google Duo will also be upgraded, this time to a whopping 32 participants per video chat. So far, the biggest winner seems to be Zoom, which is not from Google, Facebook or Microsoft.
