PSA: Google Meet will have a 60-min limit starting September 30

Google Meet is placing a 60-minute cap on video calls made by free users. To help aid the global workforce who have been tied to work from their home offices, Google has nulled this limit for awhile—but now is time for Mother G to collect.

It’s not like this is a surprise. Google said in April that it will offer no-limit video calls until September 30, and today, it looks like they’re simply following through. In an email sent to the folks at The Verge, a Google spokesperson had this to say: “We don’t have anything to communicate regarding changes to the promo and advanced features expiring.”

Along with the unlimited time, advanced G Suite features like Save to Drive, mass streaming, and others are expiring—that is, unless, users are willing to pay premiums as low as $6/mo. up to $25/mo. for Enterprise plans.

Google Meet has only been around for a little bit, but it certainly has itself positioned to rival the likes of Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

What do you guys think about this development?
