Whereby has enabled us to host virtual meets, discussions, and much more even in this time of pandemic. It is a hassle-free and easier to operate application. Whereby gives high quality audio and video callings with almost no limitations.
With this platform we were able to host virtual events, webinars, roundtables and more. We have a lot of clients who only have a cell phone so it's easy for them to join a Whereby meeting on the go.

It is being used in different departments on its own. The good thing about Whereby is the straightforward URL reservation, so you can have YOURCOMPANY-DEPARTMENT name reserved and everyone knows where to join when needed to have a talk with that certain department or person.

Whereby is used only by some company employees, to meet a specific demand, which called for the use of this solution, to the detriment of the others. Despite this point, he successfully met our expectations about the solution. It looks like the other solutions on the market, but I noticed that the quality of video and audio is very good, in addition to the need to install plugins.

We use Whereby to conduct videoconferences with few participants. It's a great tool. Very intuitive and very simple to use. Sometimes we do more than one complex videoconference simultaneously and Whereby helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants. In these pandemic times, it is the tool I use most for family reunions.

Movel is using Whereby for meetings internally and with external actors. With our specific URL, it is really a no-brainer to have meetings with the board, internally as well as externally. Externals who come to our tailor-designed meeting room are always impressed and get that aha moment when they realize how easy it is to use.

We are a fully remote team. We use Whereby for daily stand-ups and one-on-one meetings across the organization. As a distributed team, Whereby lets us have ad hoc and scheduled face-to-face meetings and working sessions with employees who are spread across two continents and three countries.

I use Whereby for coaching clients, both nationally and internationally. Having had the standard version when it was then known as Appear.In, and then in the last year or so the paid option, which has the handy record feature. Clients appreciate it that I can send them a recording of the session for them to review at their leisure.

Whereby (formerly Appear.in) has been used as a quick video call connection to our team members in other office locations. The user experience is quick and simple. Simply double-click a desktop shortcut to the unique room URL. It is used for all team meetings, several times a day. No logging in, no forgotten passwords, or extra steps required. Simple!

We use it to connect different team members located around the world for training and meeting. These meetings are often recorded, which makes the meeting space twice as valuable. It connects our managers and new trainees, as well as existing team members. In addition, we use it for interviews and face to face testing and quizzing pre-onboarding.

I oversee our Recruiting department and we currently use Whereby every now and then for conducting our virtual interviews with candidates if we're having difficulty with some of the other virtual resources that we use. It helps us with our interviews and being able to interview candidates who do not have a smartphone.

Our company has mostly remote workers (working from home) and we use Whereby for almost all of our team meetings. We tried several other video meeting services and we choose Whereby because everyone appears in similarly sized windows no matter how many people are in the meeting. Other services only show you the last three people to talk or show you a big window for the person currently talking (or just making noise). We feel like we are in a conference room sitting around a table with Whereby. Another great feature is the ease of use. We use it with outside clients and job candidates because there is no software to install or set up. It just works on any device that can go to a website.

I've used Whereby off and on at this company and my previous company (when the product was called Appear.in). In both cases, we have used it as a sort of "gap" filler solution for ad-hoc meetings. In both cases, we had other core teleconference solutions that we used for "bigger" more official purposes. Whereby is a nice solution because it doesn't require an install, and pretty much just works.

Whereby is one of many tools we use to connect our team. We're a distributed team across various geographies, so we rely on technology to connect us for our daily work needs. Specifically, our Marketing Team uses whereby for individual calls and video conferences with smaller groups. It's really easy to just share your link and have everyone hop on.
