Simple, one-click access to an always on video meeting room.

When compared to the other VC platforms, we found Whereby the easiest to use for users and invitees. The only install from a recipient's point-of-view is a Chrome extension. Zoom requires a download and an account to sign into. Microsoft Teams is only for other members on the same domain and requires an app to install and sign into--same for Skype.

You're able to create unique links for people to join and use words and phrases in the link for the invite. I think that helps you with branding yourself as a company. On Google Hangouts we're not able to do something like this, which is why I appreciate Whereby and being able to connect in that way.

I don't know that it is an apples-to-apples comparison because in most other cases I used these platforms alongside Whereby. The best direct comparison would be Google Hangouts. With Whereby, I think the video and audio are superior, the UX is superior, and it's just a better experience.

Whereby allows you to see everyone instead of just the last few people to talk. It also has no software to download and install. It works on any device that can access a website.

Possibly the smoothest video conferencing experience

Whereby is very simple, quick and reliable. The fact that you can set up a room in seconds, and invite guests to join without any add-ons or app downloads is very appealing. The user experience (including on-boarding, actual conferencing, etc.) has been designed to present zero friction points; whereby almost makes it a no-brainer to give it a try. Moreover, the quality of the audio and video was flawless, and we've encountered no bugs (e.g. no conferences were dropped or attendees kicked out). Finally, the pricing is very competitive against others.

A great video tool for small teams and individuals to use

  • Zoom
Whereby is a great tool for individual meetings or among small groups. It's super simple to use and very convenient. But if you need to have meetings with more than 10 people, a tool like Zoom is probably necessary. You'll have more options to control who can share and who can speak, which is often necessary as your team grows.

appear.in. has all the features of other more robust programs.

  • Zoom
It is a very simple tool. It can be accessed by all very fast. Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously and appear.in helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.
