Editor’s note: Free access to our advanced Google Meet video-conferencing capabilities for all G Suite and G Suite for Education customers globally has been extended to September 30, 2020.
As more employees work remotely in response to the spread of COVID-19, G Suite is helping businesses to stay connected and collaborate no matter where they're located.
Google Meet, the video conferencing tool available to all G Suite users enables employees to continue their work remotely from home. As a Google Cloud partner, we are helping to ensure that teams can still reliably meet even if employees are not in the same location.
Starting this week, free access to advanced Meet videoconferencing capabilities are rolled out to all G Suite customers, including:
- Larger meetings, for up to 250 participants per call
- Live streaming for up to 100,000 viewers within a domain
- The ability to record meetings and save them to Google Drive
These features are typically available in the Enterprise edition of G Suite and in G Suite Enterprise for Education, and will be available at no additional cost to all customers until July 1, 2020.
If you need help getting started, please contact us.
We’re committed to supporting our customers during this challenging time, and continue to trust Google Cloud scaling infrastructure to support greater Meet demand, ensuring streamlined, reliable access to the service throughout this period.
