About the Google Meet Announcement:
Google has always been an ace player in whatever technology, feature, or apps they bring on the digital plate of users. Google Meet users video conferencing platform has been serving many suite customers for both business and education users. The Coronavirus pandemic created a big market for the video calling platform and although Google meet is capable to arrange the meet call for up to 100 people, it received tough competition from the “Zoom app”. This is so because the Zoom app was available absolutely free to all users without restrictions.
The Zoom app also claimed to be going from 10 million DAU in December, to 200 million right now. Even though Google Meet had advanced features, it was not keeping up as it was paid and available to its G-suite users. Google obviously cannot afford and does not want to lose the potential market and therefore made the announcement to make the platform available for any user with an email i.d. It is not compulsory to have a Google account.
The part where the Zoom app miserably seems to be struggling with is the “privacy” and “security” breach. Even though it’s doing great and garnering attention worldwide, the revelation and warning by the FBI about the security risks have raised a possibility for Google Meet to strike back.
