Google Meet

Google Meet is part of Google’s G Suite for Education core tools. Before using Meet, users need to create a G Suite UIC account. Users can start a chat conversation, video call, or phone call using Wi-Fi with up to 250 people at a time. Meet sessions sync automatically across devices. Meet sessions started on a computer, can be continued on another device, such as a phone, for example.
