It had then extended the calling limit for all users till September 30. It has now extended the limit ahead of the holiday season.

“As we look ahead to a holiday season with less travel and important milestones like family reunions, PTA meetings and weddings hosted over video, we want to continue helping those who rely on Meet to stay in touch over the coming months,” it said.
