Whereby is well suited for virtual events, roundtables, and much more. It really helped us work while working at home. It can collaborate with Google sheets and spreadsheets. So yes, it is a very complete and easy to use video conferencing tool.

Scenarios where it is less appropriate are sometimes during meetings recording doesn't work fine. It can lag sometimes and also you cannot screen share when using through the phone.

For non-techies, just copy-paste the URL of your room and you're good to go! Also the video quality has always impressed me. [I'm] not sure what kind of compressions Whereby uses but in comparison with Google Meet, they are doing much better, so kudos!

If you cannot use another more common solution on the market or are looking for an alternative to the known solutions, it is a great alternative. If you have other tools already, and just want to test [them], that's fine, but I think the better-known ones have a better chance of using, knowing, and the learning curve will be shorter.

It is well suited in videoconferences with few participants. It is less appropriate in videoconferences with more than four participants or webinars. In that case, I would recommend software with more functions. In our company, we use Whereby as a second option. We have a more robust software, but it does not allow simultaneous meetings. In that case, we use Whereby.

Easy to use, just need a link. Not suited for bigger meetings (limit of 12, unless you upgrade). Would recommend it for remote smaller groups working together. No need for a software download so it's great to use on the go. If you have a meeting with a large corporation with lots of firewalls on their devices it might not work.

Whereby is great for small teams of a dozen or fewer employees, especially remote teams. In a larger corporate environment, it's probably less useful. However, even for enterprise users, it might be very helpful for departments where employees are spread out over multiple locations or that utilize a lot of freelancers or remote workers.

Whereby is well suited if someone is looking for a video chat platform that is easy to use for remote teams, this would be a good one to consistently use. For sales meetings, it can be frustrating if the person needs to dial in as you will need to use a different platform. This is a terrible app for anyone who needs to join via mobile. It works well if people can join via Google Chrome on a computer.

Surprisingly Whereby works amazingly well on the mobile phone. It is well suited when you want to make a more personal call than just a phone call. Easy to use and installation is nothing--so easy and more importantly fast. The basic version is free, for goodness sake! Why wouldn't you use it?

Whereby is suited to simple, one-click connection to a shared video room, ideally at a set time (i.e. regular meetings). You can set up a desktop shortcut so it's really easy for a user to join and does not require logging in and setting up, etc. Not suited to private meetings that require a different unique link every time.

This is a great product for anyone who works with a large team, especially if that team is remote. Whereby allows for easy group meetings, without the need for software downloads. Pricing is very reasonable as well. I would like to see a few more features, but it seems to be the best option in the marketplace, in my opinion, and certainly for a startup.

It works really well when you're wanting to create a private room so that you're able to meet with someone virtually. In our context, we use it pretty frequently for conducting virtual interviews with candidates who do not have a smartphone device. It has worked out really well and it's great because you're able to customize and create your own link.

I think it is a great solution for small, informational meetings when all participants have laptops. I haven't really used it outside of that context, so I can't say how well it might perform as a complete stand-alone teleconference system. When you just want to drop someone a link and jump into a high-quality video, it is perfect.

Whereby is a great tool to use individually or among smaller teams. Everyone on our team has their own Whereby link, so when you need to hop on a call you just share your link with the right people and everyone hops on. It's very simple to use and helps save us time. If you have a big team though, you'll want something more complex like Zoom. Tools like that have more capabilities for setting user permissions (e.g. only let certain people talk).
