4 Free Video Conferencing Software for Online Meetings
With more companies taking advantage of remote, online meetings, especially during the Coronavirus outbreak restrictions, here are four very good software for video conferencing, with powerful free packages.
When using these software, keep in mind that during the COVID-19 outbreak more people than usually are working from home, so there's an added stress on the infrastructure behind these services, which can lead to various glitches. On the bright side, with the increase in demand for video conferencing, developers are now competing to add more features to their software and lifting some limitations on their free offers.
1. Cisco Webex Meetings' free package now offers:
+ Up to 100 participants in each meeting (previously 50)
+ Unlimited session time (previously 40 mins)
+ Unlimited number of meetings
+ 1 GB of cloud storage
"Effective immediately, we've expanded the capabilities on our free Webex offer in all countries where it is available, not only those impacted by COVID-19. This includes unlimited usage (no time restrictions), support for up to 100 participants, and offers toll dial-in (in additions to existing VoIP capabilities)"
