Google Meet

Description Updated
Jul 30, 2021

Integrated with Google Workspace, video conferencing tool that enables easy scheduling of group video calls, and has automated closed-captioning built in. The tool is primarily browser-based so attendees are not required to download the app to join a meeting from their computer, but joining a call does require attendees to sign into a Google account. Meet is great for larger meetings, but is less effective for webinars or meetings that require simultaneous interpretation.


Approximate Cost
Meet’s free pricing tier also enables meetings of up to 50 minutes for 100 people.

Cybersecurity Considerations
All data in Meet is encrypted in transit by default between the client and Google for video meetings on a web browser. Just as with Zoom and Webex, joining by telephone uses the carrier’s network and so it might not be encrypted. Overall the cybersecurity standards are very good, but Signal might again be a better choice in sensitive contexts where end-to-end encryption is important.
