  • It provides us a mobile-friendly, user-friendly option for office hours-style meetings.
  • It makes communicating with a team easy when working remotely and allows you to jump into the room and talk with someone about a project.
  • Whereby has a super pleasant UX and overall interface.
  • I didn't like that I didn't have the ability to automatically record, it was a manual process.
  • I couldn't capture or register the attendees of my events.
  • In the free version, it's very lightweight and lacks features and hence not viable for larger meetings.

  • Nice browser based UI
  • URL reservation
  • Easy to get started for non-techies
  • Rather more room for free users. Four people is limiting considering the competition.
  • Better marketing. People know Zoom but not Whereby.
  • Have native client apps.

  • Drag-and-drop windows help keep track of who has given their update in stand-ups
  • Ability to collaborate on Google Docs and Spreadsheets within one video conferencing window
  • Arrangement of user windows doesn't always make the best use of the available screen area.
  • More integrations for live collaboration in shared-screen mode.

  • Simple to connect
  • User friendly
  • Audio quality is not great (compared to our dedicated VOIP lines)
  • Video quality is great in a small room (4 locations--point-to-point) but degrades in larger rooms. We are based in Australia, and I believe the server is in Europe.

  • Great, simple UI.
  • Very high-quality video. Better than Google Hangouts (or whatever they call it these days), and I consider it a comparable product.
  • The paid version may have dial-in. But I have always used the free version. Dial-in is typically required for an "official" multi-purpose teleconference platform.
  • I did have some trouble with larger groups (5+) when it was Appear.in but almost always use it for small 1-on-1 or 3 person meetings.

  • Browser-based, you don't need to download any software so it's easy to use
  • Video quality, we haven't had any issues.
  • Screen sharing: easily lets you share your desktop with others.
  • Sometimes the video and sound lag a little bit.
  • The mobile app doesn't quite work as well as the desktop version.
  • When you screen share, it doesn't fill the screen so you have to get used to seeing things smaller.

  • Easy to use: The app is very, very easy to use. Literally just create a chat room (input a name) and access it to chat.
  • Call/video quality: I've experienced better call quality on appear.in than in almost all other chat and video conferencing services out there.
  • Feature-wise, none that I can think of.
