Breakout rooms and meeting recordings are available on all Zoom plans but only on paid plans with Google Meet. Both platforms require paid plans for polling.
Google Meet has built-in tools for live closed captions, on the other hand, a third-party app for closed captioning in Zoom meetings is needed. Google Meet offers intelligent noise cancellation to all of its paid plans while this feature is only offered through Zoom’s desktop client for Windows and macOS.
Zoom includes built-in appearance and lighting filters with every plan but these features are available on Google Meet through a downloadable Google Chrome extension. Whiteboards and waiting rooms are standard with all Zoom plans but require Chrome extensions with Google Meet.
