Hangouts Meet Premium Until July 1st, 2020
During the COVID-19 mitigation effort, Google is providing their paid Premium version of Google Meet to educational institutions (and others) for Free.
Google Meet is video-conferencing and telepresence software. Users in Google Meet can simply send a link to anyone with a Gmail account to invite that person to join them in a meeting. Meet invites created using Google Calendar will now default to Meet. Meet is only available using Google Chrome. You may access the "Google Meet" app via MyUWF.
