Google is finally rolling out Google Meet video conferencing service integrated into Gmail. There are few users who have already got this new option to start a meeting using Google Meet in the left sidebar of Gmail on Web.
Google has recently made Meet available to all users for free. Earlier, it was only available to enterprises and education customers via G Suite. With the free version of Google Meet, one can organize video calling with up to 100 participants.
According to a report from The Verge, the Gmail integration of Google Meet has been spotted in a few users’ accounts. In the last month, the tech giant announced that Google Meet will be integrated soon into Gmail for G Suite subscribers.
Google’s support page suggests that only Gmail for work or school accounts can access it for now. And now, Google has started rolling out this new option to its users. The new Meet integration shows up in the left sidebar panel, and it allows users to ‘start a meeting’ or ‘join a meeting’ without having to switch between apps. With this option, Google makes it easy for users to access Meet directly from the Gmail dashboard.
Once you click on the ‘Start a Meeting’ feature, a new window opens up. You can choose the meeting name and share the unique URL or code with colleagues. Even, you can also join a meeting started by another person if you have the invitation link.
In case, if you still don’t have this option listed on your Gmail, you can access Meet directly from your Chrome and other modern browsers. You just have to head on to meet.google.com to start a meeting.
