We all know that the times have changed right now ever since the Coronavirus outbreak happened and social distancing, as well as sanitization including lockdown, are the words that have been on everyone’s lips.
This also means that you are not able to meet your close friends or even distant relatives who might not be staying close to you.
Therefore, the best option you have is to use video calling platforms that have already risen into popularity ever since the COVID-19 outbreak.
Now, you must have heard about Zoom which is the most popular platform right now. But it has some major privacy as well as security issues and many have started avoiding the platform.
What is Google Meet?
The next best option you have is Google Meet which is a platform from the makers of Android, YouTube and Gmail among others. We can literally say Google Meet is a great alternative to the Zoom video conferencing app.
Until now, Google Meet was available for only enterprise users as a paid option but Google has realized the demand from people and has made this platform free for everyone to use.
How to use Google Meet to make a video call?
One great thing that we like about Google Meet is that it is available across platforms and even on the Web. This means that you don’t even need to download the app in order to use it.
Right now, Google Meet is available on the web at meet.google.com as well as available on iOS and Android including tablets on both platforms.
In order to make a video call on the Google Meet platform, you have to first create a Meet on the platform from either the Web or the apps and share your meet ID with friends and family so they can either the ID to join the call.
To make things easier, you can also share a link which they can click to join directly.
