I think anyone can use host a meeting using Jitsi easily. It has user-friendly UI. It can be used for daily meetings, small online conferences, etc. Jitsi is best for having a quick conference call without having to think of its setup process. You can also create a separate lobby for people to wait while other people are busy talking in the main room.

Cons

Google

  • Meet as it comes doesn't have a great way to handle large meetings.
  • I don't like the way they hide the mute button. It's a disruptive view to mute/unmute.
  • Chat box is the only way to document collaborations within the meeting.

    Google Hangouts Meet is easy to use and easy to access. I've experienced very few technical issues compared to other similar software options. It's a little less formal than Microsoft Teams but makes it easy to access other google items such as google drive and google docs. Meeting in hangout gives you an easy-to-use hub to not only meet for planning or team-building purposes but to easily share information that can help you with your meeting goals.

    Usability

    Google

    Google Meet is very easy and simple to use. I can schedule a meeting right on my calendar - it literally takes a few seconds. There is no additional app I have to open to schedule anything. Guests can click on the link easily to join any meetings. 10/10!

    Google does a great job of providing tech support for this product, as it does many others. Similarly, Google has FAQs that cover a large amount of issues faced by users. Problems have not persisted in our use of this product. Problems are resolved quickly and easily, with or without personal Google support.

    Alternatives Considered

    Google

    The main positive feature in Google Meet over Zoom to me is the fact that Google meet can be seamlessly deployed in the browser with its full functionality. Unlike Zoom for which you need to download an extra application to use. This consequently makes workflow smooth when transitioning between something like emails and taking part in a meeting.

    For me, the main feature that separates Jitsi from other is the way how I can host a meeting. I can have both a public room as well as a secure private room with a password.

    Contract Terms and Pricing Model

    Google

    I wasn't involved in the unit pricing factor. So far I used Google meet in the office where I got access to all these Google applications including the Google Meet feature. So I wasn't involved much in this pricing factor of Google Meet and also regarding the contact terms of the product.

    Professional Services

    Google

    This is very good in the professional services as I started using this first for the professional service only. While using this Google Meet itself gives a professional feel as the UI works in a professional way. The video background modification, multi-screen feature, and some other features help in professional service.

    Return on Investment

    Google

    • Negative: on each webinar someone from our team had to write manually the people that were participating and after that matching it with the registered people list. We wasted time. It could be easily resolved by adding the export list feature
    • Positive: Collaboration and internal meetings. Calendar integration helps us save time.

    • All in all, jitsi has made the communication between team members easy. Hosting a small meeting is not that difficult so people wo are working from home do not hesitate to start a meet whenever they feel needed.
    • Remote working is not possible without proper communication and jitsi has been used for communication in my organization. So, it has been a very usefull tool for us.
