Back in April after releasing Google Meet for free users, Google said that it will allow unlimited length meetings up to September 30th. Now Google has made clear that Google Meet will limit meeting length to 60 minutes in free accounts after September 30th.
In an email, to The Verge, a Google spokesperson said, “We don’t have anything to communicate regarding changes to the promo and advanced features expiring. If this changes, we’ll be sure to let you know.”
This means that post-September 30, Google Meet features will go back to as it was for free users. With the free extension, anyone with a Google account could make unlimited Meet calls. Once the promo is expired Google Meet free calls will be restricted to 60 minutes per meeting.
The Verge reported that the deadline of September 30 is also applicable to other features like access to advanced features for G Suite and G Suite for Education customers, including allowing meetings of up to 250 participants, live streams of up to 100,000 people within a single domain, and the ability to save meeting recordings to Google Drive. These advanced features are available only for G Suite’s Enterprise customers.
