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.

From a use perspective yes, solid product. I have no complaints about the product itself. But, it isn't as well known as other products out there, and the cost isn't bad, but for small organizations with generally smaller meetings, pricing could be an issue. However, yes, the service is very reliable and works well.

I and my colleagues saved money when I started doing Join.me meetings for free. My colleagues and I were surprised by how useful Join.me was when we could host a meeting for free. Those days are gone now, and, as a result, subscribers are required to pay a small fee to obtain better features.

Join.me is a fantastic product to use any time I'm speaking with a client. Even if a screen-share or recording is unnecessary, it's a wonderful way to connect with one person or several people via a conference line. Additionally, it gives us the ability to have video conferencing (if that's ever necessary) and an incredibly easy way to connect. Beyond speaking with external clients, it's a way for me to connect with colleagues in other locations to discuss our internal work.

Join.me is great when it comes to holding virtual meetings - web conferencing. This is because it offers great features such as quality audio and full HD video quality. In addition, many people can participate during a virtual meeting which is a plus.

One scenario where Join.me is not appropriate is when some participants are based in areas with poor internet coverage because the software lags and this can be annoying.

It's a really great software, but it's more of a budget decision than anything. There are other screensharing apps like Google Meet that maybe aren't as nice with the unique URL, but it gets the job done for free. If a company has the budget for it, it's a really great marketing feature.

If you're on a bit of a budget the pricing for Join.me definitely makes it an easy choice. We were able to download it and get it up and running for free on a few of my teammates PCs that needed assistance with some computer setup. It can be a little confusing to access some of the features at first but once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy to use. Wouldn't necessarily recommend it for extremely large meetings, but it's excellent for smaller groups.

I can only comment on my own experiences and have only used one small part of what Join.me has to offer, so far anyway. But without GoToMeeting some of my clients would have lost out on substantial business opportunities we provided for him as far as appointments with reminders and invites and web meetings/conferences. It also enabled me to continue to provide what I needed to for my clients.

It works great if you want your screenshares or video conference calls to be company specific and look proffesional. You can put your logo in the background and it makes it look like a specialized experience for clients which is great. It is cheaper to use the same types of features as Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

Join.me is perfect for quick, simple meetings. It works well when we are troubleshooting camera issues with a client or having one on meetings with our staff. If you are using a desktop or laptop it works great, the mobile app isn't optimized enough for stellar performance.

Join.me works well for remote users because of COVID unfortunately. During bad weather you can sit in the comfort of your own home and meet without worry. You don't have to worry about missing meetings. You can set alerts appropriately to not miss a meeting. You can easily add people or remove.

[Join.me is] well suited when you have a need for a quick meeting. Just send out the link and person can jump on quickly.

Doesn't work as well when there is a large number of meeting participants. Found that the links didn't always work.

If you need something periodically this could be the answer but I do not consider this an enterprise system. It has several shortcomings and it is not a great setup. I do not anticipate using it again in a professional manner or workplace environment. Zoom, Webex, etc. cost what they do for a reason.

Join.me is the perfect solution for a virtual company! When working remote, our IT department is able to join a session with an employee and control their computers. This enables the IT department to work on an employees machine to troubleshoot issues with minimal collaboration needed from our employees.

I've used Join.me for years. It has been my go to web meeting platform when I'm not forced to use others in my job. It's a great way to spin up a web meeting quickly and doesn't feel like it's as much of a headache to create a meeting or get others to join. It feels like there's far less as far as steps that I need to do and much quicker process.

With platforms like Zoom, Google Chat, and Teams having far better superior functionality, Join.Me has a lot of improvements to get back into competition. Join.Me had a reputation that it was one of the first platform to introduce easy to use video features 5 years ago but there has not been a lot of improvements since then.

I think Join.me would be ideal for smaller meetings of say under 50 people. Team meetings, client pitches, collaborations are just a few scenarios where Join.me may be useful. If you have a bigger meeting with more than 50 participants, you may need to look for another solution.

Join.me is excellent in providing real-time management for socializing the business on different social forums. The deals are perfect and it supports the system by managing the live conversations. We can communicate via video conference and it works on a super configuration rate. Moreover, our clients can talk to us for 24-hours and we are getting its services through its mobile app. It is very easy to install and its usage is precise to understand its features. The most amazing feature is live streaming the business conferences.

Join.Me is great in almost any scenario you are connecting with other people and need to share information. Particularly when there are a larger number of people on a call. Join.Me lends itself to group collaboration as for the most part it has great connection and the screen share is top-notch. The only issue I run into is when using cellular data where even in the best service areas doesn’t perform as well as other options like Zoom. If you plan on working from home or have a good wireless network you should be fine but if the majority of folks are going to be connecting on cellular networks I would explore different options.

This is really great for customer facing needs. One of the reasons it is so good for customer facing interactions is because there is no software that needs to be downloaded in order to join the call. Everything is web based. This prevents the usual issues that come along with other competitors.
