Google is taking another step toward its Meet integration with Gmail today, bringing the videoconferencing service directly into Gmail for iOS and Android. Gmail mobile users won’t need the dedicated Google Meet app to hitch meetings, and Google has decided to incorporate Meet as a separate, and a rather large, tab at rock bottom of the most Gmail interface. If you don’t want Meet to seem as a tab, then you’ll need to close up the Meet integration within the settings menu. A report by the verge
Google made Google Meet free for anyone at the top of April, and it’s wasted no time integrating the service into Gmail ever since. Within the coming weeks, iOS and Android users of Gmail will find the new Meet tab to quickly join meetings.
Google has been pushing Meet as a part of Gmail, with giant blue buttons appearing inside new Google Calendar entries. This new mobile integration is that the latest plan to go head-to-head with Zoom, the video conferencing app that has soared in popularity during the occupy the house era. Both Google and Microsoft are chasing Zoom’s success, with new features and free services aimed toward winning over Zoom users.
