Google Meet users will be in for a surprise. As part of a second extension, the popular video-calling platform is now free to use until June 30.
It will enable people to make unlimited calls with friends and family members, as well as people at work. These are our details.
Google Meet Free until Summer 2021
According to Google Workplaces Twitter account, this summer you can use Gooogle Meet to make unlimited calls (mainly for 24 hours), all year. If you are a Gmail user, this can be achieved.

After Google extended its free Google Meet program until March 31, this extension is now in effect. The earlier September 2020 deadline was extended by this extension. Google removed the 60 minute limit for video calls when Gmail account holders were able to access the free version.
Google’s generosity has meant that there is a chance the June 30 deadline will be extended. It’s just an assumption and it is not certain if this will actually happen.
