Yes! I had the same thing this summer when I started leaving my house again after months of basically staying home.

9/11 is ancient history to my students. We live far away from the terrorist...

Google Meet

Yes, it works well. You can also choose to hide it if you want.

There is an add-on called Form Limiter. It lets you set the time the form is open (ie open at 1:30 pm closes at 2 pm). I haven't ever checked if it has a timer, but it might be worth checking into.
