A few days back Google made an announcement that all the free users on Google Meet will not be able to make unlimited free video calls unless they are paid business users. With this, the cap of free video calling features on Google Meet was reduced to 60 minutes for free users, which had to be applicable from September 30. However, in a turn of events, the company has now changed the policy again. It seems that free users will not have any kind of restriction until March 31, 2021.
However, after that, the same restriction will apply and they will have to go for a business account. It seems that the decision has been taken as a holiday gift for Google Meet users and now they can continue making video calls for more than an hour. In addition to this announcement, the company has also extended the noise cancellation feature to the iOS and Android users, which was only available to the PC users before. The feature will now be available on mobile for G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education customers.
The noise cancellation feature is truly impressive and is based on machine learning which tries to identify the noises in the background of the call and tries to remove it in realtime in a call. A noise like a dog barking, wind, construction work outside your home will automatically be removed from the call using this feature. It seems that using Google Meet has now become much more exciting for everyone.
