Google Duo/ Google Meets

3.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: It works great just has a few bugs and glitches that google refuses to fix.

Pros:

Free video Calling App that works with email or phone numbers instead of names. Keeps track of calls video or phone calls to repeat numbers.

Cons:

The phone call logs and video calling logs for Google Duo messed up and disappeared when they took over and they (Google) Did nothing about that issue and numerous reports and customer complaints were made about it.

Google MEETS our Expectations

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: This product has come along since its inception. It is now a viable alternative to a basic Zoom meeting experience. It does have a ways to go to be the decidedly chosen platform. But for FREE, it can NOT be beat! A start-up entrepreneurial dream.

Pros:

It is inexpensive and easily able to access for scheduling and changing meetings.

Cons:

The user experience is lacking other similar products--especially in the conferencing/webinar arena.

Best tool for instant meet with your loving one.

5.0 last month New

Comments: They must add a language translator and give us services of various items like smart baord,white board, louder sound quality etc. Nowadays people are doing remote jobs thats why they must need google meet to be integrated with other people. Experience with it was so good.

Pros:

My other friends doesnt even need to download a separate app and the virtual background is just awesome what we enjoy a lot and that just give us a new experience. I love how Google meet adjusts the resolution in seconds and if someone got disconnected he/she can join the meeting anytime he/she wanted

Cons:

My all friends cannot see the shared screen and we cannot record our meetings without being into the paid versions.
