However, Google mentioned that was a temporary opportunity for all. Now Google is capping the call length. Let’s check out more about Google Meet call length updates-

Little Flashback

As soon as the pandemic started back in 2020, people preferred to switch to online. Thus video calling and online conferencing suddenly became on-demand. Google offered an unlimited free calling opportunity for that emergency period for all.

Not to mention, Google also decided to set a deadline for the free use till September 2020. The world situation got worse and Google kept pushing the deadline. But now, the unlimited free group calling has come to an end.

About the Call Limitation
