Pros and Cons

  • Ease of loading the app
  • No codes or silly time wasting with getting connected
  • I was disappointed when they removed the fun icons which were on Appear.In.
  • They have since replaced them but with very boring ones!

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

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Whereby is a great product, particularly for impromptu calls and small meetings

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to use.
  • Accessible anywhere without product downloads.
  • The ability to add more seats. The current cap is 12. I would like up to 30 or more.
  • It should have the ability to record conversation internally. I use a 3rd part software.

Possibly the smoothest video conferencing experience

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Very easy to set up one's own named conferencing link.
  • All video conferences conducted from the browser - no downloads or logins for guests.
  • Call recording is an add-on feature that needs to be purchased separately, even for Pro plans.
  • Would be great to have some calendaring integration.

A great video tool for small teams and individuals to use

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Simple, affordable, easy to use calls and video conferencing.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
