For premium Workspace customers, Google Meet has been enhanced to enable up to 500 attendees on the video meeting service. The service, which increased in popularity accompanying an increase in remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been improved by Google to allow customers on the more expensive plans to arrange calls with more participants.
Consumers of Google Workspace will be able to accommodate additional individuals on the service thanks to the expanded video meeting participant limit.
Google Meet calls with up to 500 people will now be available to customers on the Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, and Education Plus plans. Customers on other plans will be unaffected by this change.
Over the last few months, Google has been adding new capabilities to its video conference service, including an audio-video lock function that allows a host to mute participants during a conversation.
As part of its efforts to compete with rival services like Microsoft 36, the firm announced significant enhancements to its Workspace offering in September, including capabilities for making phone and video chats from the Gmail app.
Though rival Microsoft Teams now permits 1,000 people to join a video meeting. Customers who use Google Meet, on the other hand, can activate live-streaming, which allows up to 100,000 people to watch at the same time.
