Could be betterWhen used, a significant number of computer resources are used. The large app is slow to load on some laptops. For some students and trainers who are remote and have low bandwidth – we have seen a lot of hanging-on audio/screen-sharing issues. The free version provides limited usage and functions. (i.e the 1 hour 40 minutes time limit for the sessions). Limited bandwidth size for storing webinars and recordings if you have long meetings in place.

Feature Description

Screen, App and Document Sharing – Sharing content including screen sharing lets you show everything on your screen, share a PowerPoint presentation, share documents etc.

Breakout Rooms – In all but the smallest meetings, it can be difficult to have open discussions and meaningful exchanges of ideas. With breakout rooms, people gather in small groups for lively conversation and brainstorming sessions, making the desired outcome appear faster.

Voice Calling – Voice calling is the ability to contact and converse with people in real time with a telephone. By speaking to business partners, clients, and colleagues, you can troubleshoot, gauge tone, and engage in personalized conversation.

Free Plan – the plan of using software that does not require any payments and offers a particular list of functions in the software. This allows a beginner user to experience the basic functions of the software so as to decide later whether he/she needs an update to a paid version.

Whiteboard lets you collaborate whenever and wherever you want. Share your online whiteboards to collaborate with anyone with a Zoom/Microsoft Teams account. Advanced whiteboarding tools allow users to expand and clarify their ideas.

Integrations Microsoft Teams as well as Zoom is integrated with a whole host of productivity, communication, project management, HR, finance, and many other types of apps and software. There is likewise an integrative collaboration tool that supports meetings, and document sharing with other options. 

Record meetings – Any Teams meeting or call can be recorded for future viewing. The recording captures audio, video, and screen-sharing activity, and you can share it securely across your organization. A recording will expire and be automatically deleted after a set period of time.
