According to India today, Google has launched a new standalone web app for Google Meet. The web app also known as Progressive Web Application has all the features of the Google Meet app, but this is strictly for the web. You will no longer have to type out the URL or go to Gmail to start a meeting on Google Meet; you can simply download the app on your laptop, computer, or MacBook and use it.
Google has clarified that there is no change in terms of functionality. If you download the Google Meet app on your laptop or computer, you will no longer have to find it through the browser to start a meeting. It will be available in your downloaded apps section. You can simply open the app and start a meeting as we do on smartphones when we have the apps installed on our device.
The Google Meet web app will run on any device with Google Chrome browser version 73 and up irrespective of the operating system. This means that the Google Meet can run on Windows, Mac OS, Chrome OS, and Linux devices. It would be particularly useful for Chrome book users.
Google said that the app would be rolled out gradually. The users will be available to download it within 15 days. The web app would be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers and users with personal Google Accounts.
