    FreeConference.com is best suited when the big-name video conferencing brands are simply not working. It offers an alternative when compatibility seems to be an issue when attempting to video conference. It is less appropriate for first invitations since most people are not familiar with the brand.

    I would neither recommend nor dissuade anyone from using Join.Me. When it first came on the scene, it was a game-changer as far as providing remote access to other authorized individuals and helped save a great deal of time trying to walk someone less proficient through all the detailed steps of computer repair. However, with the proliferation of Zoom and other conferencing products that also provide built-in remote access through its service, the need for a separate application is now limited and not as essential as its own product.

    Pros

    iotum

    • I love the ability to make long distance calls without charge.
    • I was delighted when they added the ability to screen share and show my slides to my customers.
    • I also love that FreeConference.com immediately provides replays of your meetings - in case somebody wasn't able to attend live.

    • No need to download anything to get started. Once you sign up you can get started from within your browser. This is probably the single best feature, its a get up and go solution for video conferencing and you do not need any software for it to work.
    • The one click join a meeting URL is genius. Users who struggle with remembering passwords or invites can just click a link and immediately participate in a meeting which means one email and a couple of clicks and a meeting can start.
    • Good control features - As the main user, you have many control features including deciding who can speak, annotations, screen sharing easily.
    • Screen Recordings to the Cloud - This can save on time when you have had a long conference, you can save a recording to the cloud and download it later.

    Cons

    • Not being able to use 800 number (toll free).
    • The website interface could be spruced up a bit.

    • There should be a complete guide to understand its features before installation because if one feature will be missed then, we can’t get them working properly.
    • Furthermore, there should be high-quality internet for getting its function and it won’t work without good network coverage.
    • I think its interface is a little hard for beginners and is not that user friendly.

      Join.me is one of the more basic/simple collaboration tools. Its usability for general users is good. It's simple, and fairly intuitive. For more advanced users however, it is rather basic, with not a lot of expandability. It has its set uses, and that's pretty much it. It's essentially a what you see is what you get platform.

      I honestly haven't reached out to their Support team. I get notifications of what they are working on which is good to see, but I haven't directly spoken with any of them. I think my main reason for this is that join.me gives me just what I need (not much more and not much less).

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

      Alternatives Considered

      iotum

      Call quality is very similar to the above products. However, most of our community partners and collaborators are not aware of FreeConference and are thus less able to utilize it without prompting and sometimes assistance from us.

      If you're looking for something basic that handles a little bit of everything when it comes to meetings, screen shares and remote desktop control join.me is a great options. If you're a super user and really wanting a lot of detailed features and rich user interfaces and money is not an issue you may want to consider use specific options.

      • BEST ROI ever! It's all free and has let me access people globally. Thanks!

      • Customer support solution - join.me has made it so much easier to quickly get with a customer and see their trouble and show them a solution. This saves lots of back and forth time and gives the customer more power over owning their solution.
      • More efficient communication - without join.me we would waste time going back and forth on emails or slack trying to get our message across. Join.me lets us quickly show AND tell others what's going on. I honestly don't know how we ever functioned without it.
