Click here to view original web page at in.pcmag.com

Google’s new video conferencing platform which focuses on enterprise users has been spotted in the wild. Google Meet is active on the web at meet.google.com however, one cannot use the service to place calls currently, while its mobile app was taken down from iTunes.

Meet offers some advantages over Hangouts. While Google Hangouts is limited to a video chat in between 10 users, Meet on the other hand can handle up to 30 people in a high-definition video conferencing.

The platform uses meeting IDs to allow people connect with the groups. It also lets users schedule meetings along with Gmail and Google calendar being integrated into the platform to make it more business oriented.

It’s interesting to note here that Google already has Hangouts, its consumer-oriented video chat, instant messaging platform along with Allo and Duo — instant messenger with Google Assistant built-in and voice calling interface. Another platform which basically does the same job as these existing services, just catering to a different audience altogether might just be another example of how the company is focused on the whole communications market.

The application will make its way to the G Suite, Google’s catalogue of products catered to business fraternity and might even replace Hangouts entirely.

Google has not officially announced the service but now that it’s been spotted, an announcement may follow suit.
