Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime is a superior alternative to other free video conference/conference call programs. The call and video quality are great, and you can have multiple participants on both video and call. It's well suited for an organization that wants an affordable option for video and conference calls, but may not be appropriate for organizations with limited budgets or those who do very little conferencing.

Join.me

I love this software best for impromptu meetings among colleagues. I usually use this for smaller meetings (one-on-one or two other guests, for example. I don't love it for large, company wide meetings or webinars where you need to keep track of comments coming in and where you need to send out a recording of the meeting later on.

Pros

  • Great call quality! The conference line is crystal clear.
  • Strong video quality. We've never had problems with the video conference feed cutting out.
  • The app is pretty user friendly and easy to use.
  • Easy to send invites and to give teammates the ability to schedule calls/video conferences on behalf of another account.

  • Join.me has a lot of personalization touches I haven't seen in a lot of other audio conferencing software. It allows you to have a personalized background for viewers to see while they are waiting for you to share your screen which I like.
  • Join.me makes it easy to add international dial-in numbers which has come in handy when working on a global level.
  • Join.me's audio quality is pretty good- it occasionally will drop people from a call, but I don't think this happens any more often than any other conferencing software.

Cons

  • Amazon Chime does have a feature to chat within the conference room with the audience but does not offer the function to select a specific user and private chat them. This could pose some issues when trying to ask questions to the presenter but not wanting it to be public. If this function exists, it's not easily identified.
  • It would be very beneficial for Amazon Chime to be an industry leader in allowing cross-platform integration without full software downloads. It would be nice to be able to see one of these major companies allow to join through any platform such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, WebEx etc.
  • Amazon Chime could afford to develop some additional plugins to allow users to quickly escalate into a conference. Such as Teams plugin or connector, Microsoft Outlook or even apple!

  • When sharing your screen when you have multiple monitors displayed, it can often be difficult.
  • Screen sharing animations can be choppy.

Thankfully, I have not had to reach out to support. The product just works well when we use it. If there is an issue, it is generally more related to the remote user's computer rather than join.me itself.

This is a fairly simple product which doesn't require much "implementation" work for our use cases.

Alternatives Considered

I believe Amazon Chime is better, easier to use, and had better quality video/audio

Join.me is something I've always used alongside GoToMeeting and Slack. I find that Join.me is easiest in setting up an impromptu meeting when needing to collaborate with team members.

Return on Investment

  • We use the free version, and we benefit from better access to discussions with prospective hires which can lead to increase win percentage.

  • Join.me helped me with the ease of training clients
  • Once again, the lack of support for Chromebook, unless I've missed it, but when I Google it, I get other websites, and the app for the Chrome browser, not the Chromebook. Although some Chromebooks are Android app capable, so I may give that a try,
  • Join.me allows me to train my own team members. So the efficiency of saving on gasoline, ha.
