Pexip interoperability introduced at the main stage keynote presentation

At Google Cloud Next, the company’s largest annual conference for its partners and customers, Google Cloud talked about its visions for efficient and engaging workplaces. Over the course of three days, thousands and thousands of visitors heard about every aspect of what the company does.

Of course, for Pexip, the most exciting part was to hear Google speak about meetings, and how to conduct them more efficiently and engagingly. Following our June announcement of partnering with Google Cloud, we were excited to be present, and be mentioned as a key partner at both the main stage keynote presentation, as well as at its session concerning modern meetings.

Several customers and large organizations are already using Pexip to enable interoperability between its Google Hangouts Meet and other video-capable systems. One that was mentioned in particular was Spotify, who uses Pexip to enable its video conferencing systems to seamlessly join Meet meetings:
