Google Meet extends free 24-hour calls until the end of June

In an effort to combat the ongoing video calling giant Zoom, The Big G is making Google Meet seem inviting. As many are still experiencing lockdown difficulties, Google is expanding their video call service for free.

Revealed in a tweet, Google's Calls Unlimited subscriptions will be active for all users with a Gmail account. If you're someone looking for a Zoom, Skype or Discord alternative, here’s an option.

How long is a Google Meets call?

Google Meet's Unlimited subscription gives users access to 24-hour long call sessions that should be a suitable time frame for most to have a conversation. While this used to be locked behind a premium subscription, the feature is now available for free.

As long as you have access to a Gmail account – which can be made for free – then you’re game. Unfortunately, unlimited calls aren't long for this world. The service will be free throughout most of June 2021.

The free calls will be stopped on June 20th, 2020, but they could come back in the future. The original free calls period was supposed to end this month, so there's always a chance.

What can I use the service on?

Google Meet is available on most devices. For starters, the service does have a browser-based version for those who don't want to download an app, just like Zoom. Secondly, both Android and iOS have a dedicated application available on the Play Store and App Store.

Google's Nest Hub Max device also supports the video calling service. It also supports Zoom. Of course, there's also a downloadable PC application. Wherever you choose to use the service, it should be a fine experience.
