Before You Start

Before we dive into the scheduling process, it's important to note that Google Meet is a spinoff of Google Hangouts. If you have a G Suite account, you can access all the Google Meet features.

Google Meet works well for both individuals who want to meet with friends and small businesses. It can accommodate up to 100 connections and allows meetings to run for up to one hour. As the host, you have control over participants, being able to remove or mute them at any time to ensure the safety of your meetings.
