What do you like best?

Google hangouts meet is an advanced version of google hangouts chat as there were many cons from my point of view in hangouts chat. The mobile application of hangouts meet is pretty good and easy to use.

The private room feature is very useful and we can invite other folks by just sharing the link or entering their email too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes screen sharing is not good in hangouts to meet software as literally I have tried around 5-10 mins for one urgent meeting but it failed.

Also sometimes the audio is not properly as compared to other software within the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I won't be recommending this software directly as there are other good options available , so can give it a shot worth trying it though. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using this for 1:1 meetings and hanging out with folks, easy to join and use is the good benefit of hangouts meet Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The beat thing about google meet is that it allows about 100 participants absolutely free to access the platform without any cost... Due to lockdown it has been one of the important platform other than zoom to connect with each other within all age group.. Be it client meeting or be it student it is always helpful.. & gmail accounts are held mostly by everyone and so hangout meet is an easy option. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For google hangout meet some fetaures are still lacking & are fixed with an update recently which were already there kn the competitors application like zoom.. Hence even after google being a trustee brand function & features are rolled out slowly much after the other platform have already provided the same. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have never used any softwares for meeting then you can go fir google hangout meet but if you have known what all facilities & features other softwares provide for eg zoom... Then you would be dis satisfied.. You can use google hangout meet free for about an hour if participants are upto 100 for eg when teaching a batch of students less than 100 you can go fir it.. Beautiful background has been added to hide the background & breakout rooms to divide the group.. Scree sharing.. Message & somewhat similar features as in zoom have been received with the recent update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been attending lot of client meeting who are not comfortable on zoom but are pleased to have meeting on google hangout meet.. Hence google meet is always a ready option for meeting or to share the stuffs if my zoom is busy with any other presentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Google Meet is a free software for everyone to use. It is a web based application doesn't require any installation. The UI is very crisp clear and clean. Real time platform to work and collaborate with clients. It is a three in one platform. We can instantly create a meeting room, need not remember the meeting URL, as every time a new URL is created and can be instantly shared over email. Unlike its other competitors where we have a fixed URL for meeting invites. Google meet is a great desktop sharing platform. For remote access to some other machine its the best available free software today. Its minimal and simplistic design appeals to a much larger audience who have very limited computer skills. The controls are very basic and straight forward. The concurrency of the android version and the windows web version is very impressive, almost similar seamless experience in both the cases. Scheduling meeting with one click is a handy feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though this app is used for screen sharing but the facility of giving access of the user's machine to someone else is very limited, this feature is much better in WebEx or Skype. People need to have a Gmail account, google meet is linked to your personal / work Gmail domain address. Screen control should be developed, noise cancellation and echo should be worked upon. Many other competitors have the feature of background change. With google meet its a bit difficult as a meeting host to control and supervise a large number of people which can be done better in MS Teams, or WebEx. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With google Meet, we use it as a instant message medium. It is very light weight and never stresses the host machine. With Google chrome installed in the system it is easy to use. It is used for business meetings and virtual meetups. This is also used to assist customers remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The connection is fast and not as laggy as a lot of other similar programs I've used, and the quality is generally clear. I really like that you can also see who is currently in each meeting whilst in the 'waiting room' of the meeting. It even works fairly well in whole-company meetings with 40+ people in the meeting at any one time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is complicated and not very simple to use, and it's not obvious how to do certain things such as view more people in the screen at any one time, or change the view from just the speaker to tiles of everyone. There is limited 'fun' features such as background images (only available on certain browsers?) but this isn't a major concern while working, but it would be nice to have for the company 'social' calls. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working remotely means we often need to screenshare, and this helps us do it quicker than other software I have used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Screen sharing and even video conferencing is seamless even on low bandwidth and in case of switching connection, other members are not notified about dropping off and rejoining if done within few seconds. This is incorporated in the best way in Google Meet in comparison to other conferencing softwares that I have used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When sharing a video on a browser tab and clicking on full screen, the entire screen is not occupied and instead a top bar to stop sharing is present always especially when you're presenting a video on a shared browser tab.

Secondly, you need to have a Google provided email id to use this software and it doesn't work with any other provider's email id. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're having a low bandwidth connection or fluctuations in your internet, go with Google Hangouts Meet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since most devices are Android based, there is seamless integration with other Google services like calendar and email which helps in good collaboration and saves time.

Additionally, a single user can share his/her tab and present a video (which might be a paid content) and all other participants can watch it without having to pay individually for the video if it is a paid content which helps in cost reduction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Meet platform is entirely online and web-based. Anyone with a Google account can join a call without the need to install a separate software locally like Zoom or Skype.

Also, The fact that Google Meets can get easily integrated with Google Calendar while setting up my day or sending out calendar invites, that is really useful in binding the entire team together as I can use the Calendar app on my phone or laptop to join meetings based on my schedule on Google Hangouts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular to be honest. The sound and video quality are good. We have screen sharing options, the option to integrate a jam board with the call, raise hands, etc. Google Meet also now gives the option to do a live stream.

I would definitely love to have a remote control feature like Cisco WebEx where I can access the desktop of someone else on the call. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

During the pandemic, everything has shifted to virtual platforms. Most of my daily meetings like scrum calls, client interactions, demos take place over Google Hangouts. Since everything is based on the web, I haven't faced any issues in getting other people to join me on call on Hangouts whereas for other platforms I need them to download a local software.

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to invite people into google meet. As Covid-19 is happening, me and my colleagues can't meet up, so we use google meets on the daily. It is easy to make a meet, and not to mention, they have background affects so no one can see your background and collect information on you. You can also share your screen to present to others, and if your in charge of the meeting, you can kick someone out if they are making trouble. For those reasons google meets is very helpful to me and my colleagues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how it takes some time to unmute my microphone to speak. It also gets very slow and laggy while I use the background effects, making it hard to use. As for sharing my screen, that also takes a lot of time. I would hope that google meets works on making that faster. I also which the screen in google meets shows the people their more clearly as it gets blurry at times. For those reasons google meets can get very difficult to use at times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend you have strong wifi connection when using, or it can get very slow. I also recommend using background effects to block people from seeing your home. If you can, try to stay somewhere quiet as the microphone picks up lots of sound. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving problems that I had because of Covid-19. My work was hard to complete without my colleagues, but I also had to social-distance. So when I told my colleagues about google meet, we were thrilled to see the results. We could connect to each other and speak to each other and see each other, while keeping everyone safe. All in all, we feel very happy about google meet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
