Google Meet and Zoom are reportedly coming together at last as both companies are now working together and not apart.
Google Meet and Zoom Are Reportedly Coming Together
In a bid to make Google Meet the best video conferencing platform and service out there, the company right now is all set to work with its very great rival zoom and not against it this time around.
Tech Company Google has continued in its quest to heavily invest and add new features ever since the hybrid working boom that came around the pandemic period. But it has however a bigger problem in that there are so many alternative platforms that not every client or consumer will make use of the same solution. And while many companies prefer to make use of the Google Workspace environment which automatically includes Meet, many other people have continued to invest in zoom as the main communications platform.
Google Meet and Zoom Working Hand In Hand
Google in a bid to boost potential new customer options has now confirmed bi-directional interoperability between its own video conferencing service Meet and Zoom. Coming in a later time in 2022, this very news now means that users will be able to join calls from an opposing platform from a calendar invite or simply by entering a meeting code.
There is one small piece of information worth mentioning though as while users of zoom can easily join Google meet calls across all platforms, only a couple of Google meet users will be able to join zoom calls, and most specifically those users who are running ChromeOS-based Meet devices.
Google to Include Support for Other Devices over Time
The company has however promised to include support for other devices over time, but for the time being, this will likely leave many users uncatered for, despite following a similar partnership with Cisco’s Webex platform over a year prior to now.
Elsewhere, Google has now fine-tuned its collaboration with Logitech and Poly, both of whom will now offer Meet for Android-based appliances. The Poly Studio X family and Android-based appliance versions of Logitech’s Rally Bar and Rally Bar Mini are both set to launch in the year 2023.
