What is Google Meet
Google Meet is Google's video conferencing application that is included in the Google Workspace ( formerly G Suite ) collaborative space in the cloud. This application, formerly called Hangouts Meet, is designed to improve collaboration between teams. This makes its interface very intuitive and easy to use, and it is integrated with all Google applications.
Also, as Google aims to improve on-the-go collaboration between teams, Google Meet can also integrate with Hangouts Meet devices for video conferencing .

Google Meet and Workspace: more than an application for video calls
As we have mentioned, one of the main advantages of Google Meet is that it is part of a space totally created to collaborate, Google Workspace . This contains all the necessary tools for daily work: Google Calendar, Documents, Gmail... In this way, Google Meet is not limited to an application in which to make video calls, but is fully integrated with the rest of the applications (if you want To know more about Workspace we recommend that you read this article ). For example, with Workspace you can:
1. Video calls created from Google Calendar
Video conferences can be created directly from Google Calendar , which makes it much easier to check the availability of other attendees and organize the tasks of the week.
2. Access to video calls from Gmail
In addition, from the Gmail mail application you can also access your video call schedule or create a new one instantly. Without switching windows or exiting the application. This streamlines the process of creating video calls.
3. Side-by-side editing of Google documents
With Workspace and Google Meet you can also edit Google Docs in real time, seeing the reaction of your colleagues in parallel. This is thanks to a pop-up window that is activated when you are on a call and go to these documents.
How to save money with Google Meet

2. Fewer commutes
This is an advantage above all for those companies that are international and/or those that have to visit clients or suppliers on a regular basis. The fact of having a tool that can be used directly from the browser and without the need for a Workspace account makes it the perfect application to communicate with external organizations. Thus, the team will not have to travel on a regular basis and will save money and time.
3. More flexibility for employees
In addition, having Workspace and Google Meet opens up a range of possibilities in terms of flexibility for employees. Either to do home office on a regular or occasional basis, or to be able to communicate with the office in case you have to travel. This means an increase in the job satisfaction of your team, which has a direct impact on their performance.
