Google has launched the Google Meet app as a stand-alone video conferencing app to replace the current Hangouts application. Currently available only for G-Suite users, the Google Meet app offers all the features you would expect from a full-fledged video conferencing app (like Skype for Business, Zoom, etc).
In this tutorial, we will show you how. you use the Google Meet app on the Desktop.
Once again, please note that currently, the Google Meet app can only be used with a G-Suite account.
Step 1. Open the web browser on your Laptop/Desktop.
Step 3. Sign in with your G-Suite account. You will now see the main window, with your account details on the top right, and a single button to start or join a meeting. If you have a scheduled meeting upcoming, the window under the ‘New meeting‘ button shows all scheduled meetings in the list format.
