Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?

1 —Google Meet put the clamps on free users by imposing a 1-hour meeting limit.   

Google will now be limiting group video calls for its free users to one hour, officially ending the promotion the company ran during the pandemic which previously limited group video calls to 24 hours. Initially, Google Meet was supposed to provide unlimited video calls from the time it launched in April of 2020 until the end of September of last year. However, Google extended the deadline two times. The free version of Google Meet still allows more flexibility as compared to Zoom’s free version by allowing up to 100 participants for a one-hour meeting, whereas Zoom has a limit participation of 100 guests for a 40 minute meeting.
