✓ ZoomMy top recommendation would be Zoom. It is able to handle the 50 or so people simultaneously on a video call without hiccups. It’s smooth, fast and is the one with the least issues based on my experience.

My personal favorite option for video conferencing is Zoom.
I would personally recommend this option over others because of it’s high-functionality and vast array of features. Even with the software’s many capabilities, it’s very easy to use, and doesn’t require a lot of know-how for many people to be able to operate it. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Zoom is priced very reasonably, and even has a powerful free option available depending on your team’s needs.

Zoom is very robust and easily accessible, but only recommend pro as free runs out after 40min. Other than that is a great app.

As someone who works in a fully remote company, video conferencing tools are vital to our communications and operations. While we’ve tried several platforms over the years, Zoom is perfect for our needs due to its ease of use and short learning curve. It also offers an intuitive and feature-rich platform to handle video conferencing needs for teams of all sizes. If you have remote teams operating in different time zones (as we do), Zoom offers a simple and shareable recording option to get recorded meetings into the hands of those who may not have been able to attend meetings live.

In light of COVID-19 and the need to work remotely, we are using Zoom so that people are able to share their fun experiences of working from home daily. We are sharing what our work stations look like, discussing workout routines we are doing, talking about the music we’re listening to, and so on. We’ve started doing virtual happy hours as well and they’ve been a big hit! In addition, there are plans for a Zoom morning workout routine hosted by team members. Zoom is super easy to use, and the cost is very low.

It’s ideal for team meetings from home, allowing you to have more than 100 people connected at the same time. Additionally, meetings can be recorded to keep a record of what was discussed. I was able to teach my small Marketing class while I was in Orlando while my students were in Miami. I like how Zoom highlights the individuals who are speaking.

I use and would recommend Zoom for any individual in need of video conferencing software. This is an easy to use (and free!) video conferencing software platform. You can join in meetings and host them, inviting remote work individuals from across the country to be present and get in some much needed face time (or audio time) as we all work remote during COVID-19. Best of all, you can download it on your laptop, tablet, or phone so you have access everywhere you go.

The most convenient screen recording software for me is Zoom. Why? It is widely used, which means that I can quickly find a solution or an answer to any difficulty or question arises.

Another reason why I choose Zoom among all other similar tools is its free version.

The basic free plan says that one free meeting can last up to 40 minutes.

But as my practice shows, I have also had even longer meetings. I recorded every such meeting and could save it on my computer, upload it to a Google drive or Dropbox. What I’m really used to is Google Drive.

With Zoom, I have free access to my camera and microphone, I can show my presentation, chat and see everyone in the meeting.

This screen recording software is really one of the most convenient for me because it is simple, widely used and free. And one more thing for those who want to pay) If you want much more features like a full day meeting, you can buy a paid plan for $14.99 per month.

Zoom seems to be holding up the best with incredible bandwidth demands right now.

Zoom is becoming a favorite because it has some great features like Touch up my Appearance and a control panel that is easy to use. It also does much better for audio-only conference calls than it used to. It is a leaner, lighter interface, so works well for many users.

Zoom is a breeze to set up and use. Somehow, Zoom has mastered using the computer audio and microphone option with my iPhone earbuds, while other vendors play sound out the laptop speakers or do not recognize my microphone. Finally, I love Zoom’s “background image” feature.. It literally looks like I’m participating from a golf course, which encourages me because all the local courses are closed.
