How to use Google Hangouts Meet for group calls? Step-wise guide

Google Meet is the communication software that facilitates video conferences primarily for professional use. This software is very helpful to link remote colleagues together for real-time conversation. It supports up to 25 people to communicate and share videos at once. The number of people who can join a call can go up 50 to 100 if you subscribe to higher Google Meet membership tiers.

This can be very useful to the organization for conducting virtual meetings. It is a very efficient tool but one thing to note is that it is not compatible with all web browsers. Here is what you should know while conducting a meeting using Google Meet. This article explains about creating a meeting, joining a meeting, scheduling a meeting, and starting an immediate meeting using Google Meet.

How to join a meeting?

When you tap on the link received through email you are directed to the meeting. It asks you to follow some on-screen directions, which may include verifying that you want to use your device's microphone or camera.

Now, you can choose the microphone option to either on or off the microphone. It also allows you to turn off your camera as you click on the video icon. I guess I don't have to explain about the red button, of course, to end the meeting right?
