Google Meets

Google Meets:

Normally, this is only available to G-Suite Business/Education members, but as a result of COVID-19, Google has allowed non G-Suite members access to this program. You can conduct meetings of up to 100 people on this platform. It does require a Google account and you must have access to broadband internet in order to have HD (high definition) video calls.

Similar to Skype and Duo, Meet also provides live captions for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. Calls can be started from your Google email account as well.   There is not a time limit for meetings, but beginning in September of 2020, free members will be limited to 60 minutes.
