Pros For a more corporate, yet modern approach, you might find Room attractive due to the option to upload files directly from Dropbox and integration with Slack and Flowdock (team collaboration apps).Room allows up to 4 users to talk at a time and includes text chat, screen sharing, an i OS app, and is compatible with Android browsers.Many even have additional functions and features such as custom links, chat, screen sharing, allowing more than two parties and locking rooms so no one else can enter.Note about Web RTCMany of these video conferencing services are built on Web RTC (real time communication) framework.Just click the “Start a new call” button and share the unique link with up to 3 others.
The ability to connect and meet with people online means we're no longer limited by geographical location. All of these services have a unique link you can easily share in an email, text message or on social media.Popular services such as Vox OX, oo Voo, IMO and, of course, Skype and Google Hangouts all have this problem, thus putting a damper on quick collaboration.One “solution” to this is to have accounts for them all, which is something I used to do.I do understand some of the “cons” such as limiting the number of users, however, the strangely named custom links can be confusing when sharing with someone.Also, if you want to claim a specific link or customize your username, you have to sign in with Facebook or Google. You and your friend can use any Web RTC-compatible browser. There aren’t any extra features like text chat, but it’s simple, easy to use, and a great option if you only want to talk with one person.v Line is a simple video chat client with a modern interface that is a breeze to use.
