Why Use Google Meet Enterprise for Remote Collaboration and Communication?

Google Meet provides secure video meetings for your business to keep your team connected. With Google Meet, you get enterprise-grade video conferencing built on Google’s robust and secure global infrastructure. Meet is included with G Suite and G Suite for Education.

Meet takes the headaches out of joining a video call at work. Just set up a meeting and share a link. No worrying about whether teammates, clients, or customers have the right accounts or plug-ins. With a fast, lightweight interface and smart participant management, multi-person video calls are a breeze.

No Plugins to Install

Meet works entirely in the browser. Meet does not require or ask for any plugins or software to be installed for users on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and new Edge. This limits the attack surface for Meet and the need to push out frequent security patches on end-user machines. On mobile, you need to install the Meet app from Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Highly Versatile & Designed for Every Kind of Business

G Suite offers solutions built to fit businesses of sizes and types along with educators, non-profits and government orgs. Meet is fully integrated with G Suite, so you can join meetings directly from a Calendar event or email invite. All of the important event details are right there when you need them, whether you’re joining from a computer, phone, or conference room.

Works on Mobile Devices

With Meet’s specially designed iOS and Android apps, you can see your meetings for the day with all the important information from Calendar, then join with a tap. G Suite’s Enterprise edition also creates a dial-in phone number for each meeting, so every guest has a great experience – even on the road without wifi or data.

Works with your Current IT Infrastructure

Google Meet + Chat + Drive Enterprise allows you to enable Meet premium for your team without changing email or other collaboration systems. Teams using Skype for Business or meeting systems based on SIP and H.323 standards (e.g. Polycom and Cisco) can seamlessly join a Meet meeting through the Pexip Infinity Platform. Meet hardware connects any meeting room or huddle space to a video meeting with a single click. Simple to use and designed for deploying at scale, all units can be set up in minutes and managed online.

Trusted by Major Brands

Enterprises around the world take advantage of the same secure-by-design infrastructure, built-in protection, and global network that Google uses to secure your information and safeguard your privacy. Meet video meetings are encrypted in transit and our array of default-on anti-abuse measures keep your meetings safe. In fact, Gartner named Google meetings solutions a Peer Insights Customer’s Choice for 2018.
