Google meet is taking a U turn as it enforces a 60-minute limit on group video calls. Google today announced that they will now limit the time of group video calls to a maximum of 60 minutes on free accounts. The unlimited group video calling services was made available to all users last year when the pandemic hit the world. An year after, google is folding back the benefit. One on one video calls will remain unlimited.
The updated guidelines of google meet mentions that free Gmail users can now host video calls with 3 or more participants for only 60 minutes at a stretch. At 55 minutes, every participant on the call will get a notification that the call is going to end soon. Now google workspace users have to upgrade their free account for enjoying unlimited group video calls. These new guidelines were first reported by 9to5Google
