Web meeting solution

I sought a software that allowed my customers to view my screen live or join a video conference without having to install any software. Many people's personal or corporate computers don't allow them to download software, which makes zoom impossible to use. So Whereby makes everything much simpler and straightforward.

PROS

Whereby appeals to me because it is simple to utilize and includes multiple beneficial features. It's great because there's no need for a download or special access. I also appreciate having a unique URL that I can share.

CONS

The free version is very limited i wish they could unlock more features for free users, otherwise it's all good.

A reliable and easy-to-use solution to host video calls

Whereby has been a solid solution to easily organize and host consulting calls and "virtual coffees". Its ease of use, and the fact that can be used both on computer, as well as on tablet and smartphone, make it a no-brainer and a tool that should be in every digital business owner's toolkit.

PROS

I had been using a wide variety of video conferencing tools before I started using Whereby and the things I found have made a difference are: — the array of features: you can create customized and branded "virtual rooms" where to host calls, you can have one-on-one and group calls and you can do so both through the web-based version and the smartphone version of Whereby — ease of use for both the conference call host and participants: it's incredibly easy to organize your first video conferencing call and have people join it, especially because there's no download nor installation required for them to use the web version of Whereby — web and apps: some video conferencing tools are available only through their web version, while Whereby lets you have calls with your computer, as well as with your smartphone or tablet through the mobile device app

CONS

The one thing I don't think is ideal about Whereby is the fact that Call Recording is an add-on feature. I wouldn't have an issue with it being an add-on feature available for the Whereby Pro Plan. However, even if one purchases the Pro Plan, he/she needs to purchase Call Recording as a separate add-on (which cannot be bought as a standalone feature). So you'd end up paying for two separate things: for the Pro Plan and for the Call Recording feature.

Reason for choosing Whereby

Because of the features and the mobile app

Reasons for switching to Whereby

I had Daily.co crash on a couple of occasions and I lost the recordings of those calls

A basic platform to do online meetings

it was a good platform to make calls, but i don't see value in paying for the same service that other platforms offer

PROS

What I liked most about the platform was being able to have my own room for calls and customize the URL, so I could always use the same one.

CONS

when they started charging to keep using the most basic features

The best in

BEFORE: "Hey, what's your account?" "I don't find you" "Witch one of these 3 old Skype accounts is the new one?" *THREE HOURS LATER* "Hey, here we are" NOW: "Click on this link" "Hey nice, it took like 3 seconds and I'm not frustrated"

PROS

YOUR INTERLOCUTORS DON'T NEED AN ACCOUNT. Or software. Or your nickname. You simply have to send them a short link like appear.in/**yourname** and that's it.

CONS

None. It's a super simple and easy to use solution. Maybe, the fact that not everyone is using it, so sometimes you're forced in use other bad conference solutions.
