Google Meet - Video calling with 16 at atime.

Google’s Meet video app gets G-mail integration


Google has made its Meet video conferencing app accessible directly from Gmail, allowing users to join meetings without switching between apps. Meet - it’s the rebranded version of Hangouts Meet - is available as part of Google’s G Suite, which now has 6 million paying business customers, up from 5 million in February 2019.

The video app has seen a big increase in use as remote work booms worldwide. By enabling users to access the video app from Gmail, Google hopes to make it faster and easier to start video meetings. “Our goal is to help you follow the flow of the day, seamlessly switching between email and video meetings—whichever form of communication you need,” the company said in a blog post last week.

Options to start or join a meeting are available in the left hand panel of Gmail. When starting a meeting, a new window opens with a “secure, unique” URL. Those joining a meeting can enter a meeting code provided by the organizer, or start an ad hoc one by choosing a meeting name, such as “quick catchup.” This can be shared with colleagues within the same G Suite domain and typed into the “Join a meeting” bar to get started. Access to Meet within Gmail is currently available in web browsers only as part of a gradual rollout to users. A mobile app version is “coming soon,” Google said.
