Telegram is a worthy Google Meet alternative for lengthy video calls — but only on your phone

Thanks to the pandemic, I’ve had to participate in at least a few video calls every week, either for work or to catch up with friends. Most platforms were worthy to use last year, when they offered limitless free calls and other features at no cost.

But now, these platforms have been scaling back on free features. Last month, Google Meet restricted its free group calls to 60 minutes. That could be annoying if you’re watching a show or a movie with friends.

Thankfully, there are alternatives like Telegram for that. Last month, the chat app rolled out a group call feature. Now, it has extended the maximum viewers limit for a group call to 1,000 participants. You can read up on how to start a video call on Telegram here.
