New Changes in Hangout Meet by Google
The increase in participants for Meet by Google Hangout is a wonderful change as it will bring more participants to join all around the world thereby increasing the productivity and efficiency of the organization.
G Suite is the corporate version of Gmail which is used as a communication and collaboration tool. Hangout Meet comes under the communication part of G Suite. Google launched the video conferencing app called Meet by Google Hangouts to use it for holding meetings at ease. The web and mobile applications are the new additions in G Suite. It is used for holding video conferencing inside and outside of the organization domain. People can join hangout meeting from a computer, laptop and mobile or using a conference room Hangout Meet Kit.
Depending on the plan of G Suite being used, a limited number of participants can join a video conference in an extended capacity.
Previously the limits were as follows-
For G Suite Basic edition only 25 people can be added at a time.
For G Suite Business edition only 50 people can be added at a time.
For G Suite Enterprise edition only 100 people can be added at a time.
But recently the participant limit has been increased for all G Suite editions.
For G Suite Basic edition from 25 now 100 people can be added at a time.
For G Suite Business edition from 50 now 150 people can be added at a time.
For G Suite Enterprise edition from 100 now 250 people can be added at a time.
But why such a change?
Meeting with teammates, clients or customers can be done in large numbers. That is why the number of participants has been increased for meetings in large groups. It will save a lot of time as well as more participants can be added at one go.
