Now, you are probably wondering: what is the purpose of this feature? Who would have 24-hour-long meetings? Well, according to Google, this feature is “great for virtual movie nights and socially-distanced gatherings.” So, although you probably won’t host a 24-hour online gathering, you can rest assured that your online event won’t be interrupted because of a time limit. At the moment, Google Meet’s meetings are capped at 60 minutes.
In its blog post, Big G also stated that Premium subscribers can now make use of Google Meet’s noise filtering option, so no more dog barks and construction sounds. Previously, this feature was also a Google Workspace exclusive. Since with Google One’s Premium tier you get at least 2TB of storage space, you should also have enough space to keep your gatherings on Google Drive and rewatch them whenever you want. So after all, holding an online event using Google Meet might not be such a bad idea.
As for what it will cost you to use Google One’s Premium plan, well, its price tag is $10 per month or $100 per year. With the Premium plan, you also get a few additional features, like a Google VPN for Android and iOS and a 10% cash back on purchases from the Google Store. If 2TB is not enough space for you, you can upgrade to the 5TB, 10TB, 20TB, or 30TB Google One plans, which cost $25, $50, $100, and $150 per month or $250, $600, $1,200, and $1,800 per year, respectively.
