That article is days previous and such clickbait.
Google already required workers to make use of Hangouts/Meet for conferencing neatly ahead of this WFH “Zoom increase” of overdue.
It appears like even with outsider/gross sales calls coming in to Google workers, they weren’t to make use of Zoom/WebEx/BlueJeans/another conferencing competition. If I’m a gross sales man and I need to land a freelance with Google, you’ll be able to wager I’m the use of their most popular provider to community with them. That’s a no brainer.
This “Google close it down as it’s a safety legal responsibility” clickbait has come up a bunch recently, and is mentioned far and wide the MacAdmins Slack channels (in particular #securty and #zoom), however I’d want to pay attention it from a Google C-level or their SysAdmin/SecOps groups ahead of I purchased that.
Requiring workers to make use of the in-house answer is an obtrusive ecosystem factor. Can’t say I blame them. It’s like how Nike doesn’t need folks dressed in Adidas/and so forth on their campus.
