Google Meet has increased its attendee limit to an absurd 500 people

The Google Workspace Updates blog has announced subscribers to its Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, and Education Plus tiers can now fit up to 500 participants in a single Google Meet call, up from 250 for Enterprise customers. Availability begins today with the rollout expected to be complete by Friday.

It can be difficult to communicate directives across a small-to-medium-sized company or a specific division at times. For those occasions when a video conference is required, a closed-circuit satellite arrangement may be required. They might also rely on Google Meet.

Highlights

  • Other Workspace and G Suite customers as well as free users are stuck with their current limit of 100 participants in a room. Enterprise customers who need more capacity are advised to consider livestreaming their session — there’s space for up to 100,000 viewers though interactivity is limited.
