Recently, I had to meet online with a small team to review some changes to a website we are launching (true story). We needed the host to share his screen and we needed audio. Simple, right? It’s 2013 after all.
On previous calls we had vacillated between Skype and Google Hangouts with no luck- both failing to provide seamless video and audio support- so this time we tried Teamviewer. However, Teamviewer also failed us as a solution. We finally settled on screen sharing with Teamviewer and audio support via a free teleconference service.
So I went searching for a better solution and found one: The #1 Cloud Video Conferencing Experience called Zoom.us.
Zoom.us really does excel when it comes to quality, features and pricing.
A free account offers many features like; Up to 25 participants per meeting, MP4 recording and playback, Google and Facebook IM, Instant or scheduled meetings, iPad/iPhone screen sharing and a bunch more! Hosting and joining meetings can be done with a couple of clicks. The video and audio quality are great and you can’t get cheaper than free.
So, we recommend you check out Zoom.us before your next audio-video-global-screen-sharing- conference.
Finally, If you can recommend other conferencing/meeting tools (like join.me) please comment below, we’d love to hear about your experiences.
- Get frustrated with all the hype about Skype, Google Hangouts and other tools.
