What is Google Hangouts Meet, the program for making video calls and video conferences useful for those working remotely: the service will be free until September 2020 to deal with the coronavirus emergency and allow all professionals to work from home. But how does it work?

Google Hangouts Meet: prices, how much does it cost?
Google Hangouts Meet is part of the G Suite and its cost varies according to the package chosen: a version of the Basic plan costs $6 USD per month, but it can also be found on offer at different times of the year even at $4 USD, while the Business package reaches $12 USD per month.

Google Hangouts Meet free for now: how the offer works
Google’s choice to provide Google Hangouts Meet for free, for a decidedly extended period of time, is subject to certain particular conditions.
The promotion is in fact reserved for those who have already signed up for a previous offer of the G Suite package and G Suite for Education (for schools) will not be subject to subscription costs for the following months starting from the current one, April, until September 30.
The service can therefore be used free of charge only by those who already have an active subscription and not by those who, aware of the offer, register today to take advantage of it.
