We have witnessed a rapid adoption of video conferencing tools not just by remote teams, which were early adopters of this form of communication, but also by co-located teams. Although there have been some major security concerns that have surfaced for popular tools like Zoom, makers of video conferencing apps are working hard to figure solutions for this.
We have documented an exhaustive list of video conferencing apps towards the end of this post, however, here are our top 7 picks with a brief review on each:
- Remo.co: It offers two products - Remo Conference and Remo Virtual Office. With features such as setting up virtual events with broadcast capabilities, creating virtual offices and networking in the virtual conference makes Remo.co a very powerful tool for enterprises.
- Lito: Lito is an easy-to-use web application that uses voice chat plus screen sharing as a way to collaborate with teams. You tend to miss out on visual cues though which is possible in other video communication tools.
- GoTo Meeting: Specifically built for enterprises, GoToMeeting’s best feature is that except the host, the attendees can join the meeting without installation of the application. Additionally, the compatibility across devices makes it easy for teams to collaborate faster. It is also feature-rich in terms of workflow integrations, security compliance and account management features.
- Adobe Connect: Adobe Connect is of great value particularly in activities which require customized and interactive meeting rooms - examples, webinars and online training.
- Hibox: When it comes to managing tasks while having a video call, Hibox fits the bill. With a fee as low as US $4 per user for PRO version and US $8 per user for Enterprise version, it provides advanced task management tools and security settings.
- JackFruit: For companies who are already using Slack, Jackfruit can be a great integration. You can create video rooms for channels you add JackFruit to.
- urLive: For one-to-one conversation or smaller teams (upto 4 people), urLive can be the right fit. Additionally, they have a 180 days free trial version.
