Features of Google Meet 

1.User interface

The user interface of Google Meet is outgoing and impressive and not at all confusing. On opening the app, you have two options, simplifying the sole purpose of the app itself. You can either create a new meeting or join a meeting with a code.

If you want to create a new meeting, you can make and share the link through different communication apps such as WhatsApp. You can either schedule the meeting on Google calendar or start an instant session. It syncs with G-suite perfectly.

You can also do international dial-in numbers for any video meetings with the latest version. You can control who all joins the discussion. 

If you are to join a meeting, either you need to click on the link shared with you or enter the code given by the host. Also, the options to audio and video are cut and clear. 

Earlier you had to download it as a separate app on the home screen, but with the latest updates, the Google Meet is integrated with Gmail. You can see a tab of Google Meet when you open Gmail.

Thus, the whole interface is very simple and straightforward. 


Your meetings are encrypted in Google Meet. That means you can have discussions with no concern of safety. The video meetings in Google Meet are encrypted in transit and proactive anti-abuse measures.
