Google Meet's free ‘unlimited’ calls extending until June this time - Craffic

Google is now extending its unlimited video call policy that lets free Google Meet users host calls for longer than 60 minutes. The tech giant was earlier set to expire this policy after September 30th, but with this new extension, free users can host those longer calls through March 2021.

“As we look ahead to a holiday season with less travel and important milestones like family reunions, PTA meetings and weddings hosted over the video, we want to continue helping those who rely on Meet to stay in touch over the coming months. As a sign of our commitment, today we’re continuing unlimited Meet calls (up to 24 hours) in

the free version through March 31, 2021, for Gmail accounts.”

Said Google Meet’s group product manager, Samir Pradhan, in a blog post. The extension could be a cause of relief for those who have relied on the virtual means of communication during the COVID-19 pandemic.
