After giving up on its own attempts at creating its own mobile platform, Microsoft switched to integrating Windows better with Android and iOS.

Google Meet PWA is the recommended way to Meet on desktops

Video conferencing services have become the bread and butter of work, school, and even social life for the past year and a half. Each of the contenders has its own idiosyncrasies and preferred ways to access their services. Zoom started out as a standalone app but has enabled a version that runs inside a web browser. Google Meet, on the other hand, starts from the opposite direction and has embraced a browser-only experience on desktops.

Old Android devices won’t be able to sign in to Google accounts soon
