Whereby Connect you and your team fast and easy

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I like these services because I can create one unique link to share with family, friends, and coworkers, with this just enter the link and you are instantly connected. I will add some sort of approval by the admin to join the meeting.

Vorteile:

This service it is easy to use, it is very fast and consumes little to none resources for the machine and connection, I've used it with connections less than 1Mbps of internet speed and I still can share screen and video (not the best quality) but it works. A great option for meetings.

Nachteile:

I can't see any cons just yet. Maybe the interface is too simple (for some people) but I choose performance over graphics any time of the week. (Maybe: One con would be that any person with your personalized link can access to the meeting)

An easy to use video conferencing solution with good quality

5,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: Whereby is a quick and easy meeting tool working seemlessly, stable and looking very nice. It also offers a lot of useful features.

Vorteile:

What I like about Whereby is, that it is very easy to use and contains a lot of useful features. The interfaces looks very good and users usually get how it works while using it for the first time. The video quality as well as audio is very good. I would even say it's the best quality from the video conferencing solutions I've used so far. The meeting page is very customizable with colors and background images. It also features useful features like breakout-rooms, noise reduction, integration of several collaboration tools, screen sharing and a very nice chat function. The prizing is, starting at $6,99, very cheap. As well nice is, that the meeting url always stays the same. And nobody needs to install any software for using it. It just works in the browser.

Nachteile:

Whereby could use a little makeover in case of the android app. It hasn't been updated for quite a while. It's basically a full screen browser. It would be nice, if that could be solved. Helpful would be also, if there could be shown more than just 12 people on camera.

A good tool but there is better out there

4,0 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: Whereby allowed me to get started with video conferences and online meetings. However, I switched to Zoom for more stability and functionalities.

Vorteile:

Whereby has a user-friendly and simple-to-use interface? It is easy to set up a meeting and send invitations. You can receive notifications when users enter the room (customizable). Rooms can be locked or open, which is convenient to give you more control over who can come in. The quality and speed are standard, however, I had to deal with broken-up communication more often than with Zoom. At first, I thought web-based technology would not be great, but it turned out to work well and be rather user-friendly.

Nachteile:

Resources, features, and functionalities are more limited than Zoom. It was always a bit frustrating not to be able to share a specific window but to share the whole screen (at least from Safari). The background image (called "effect" instead of background image, which is the frame image and not what appears behind you)is limited to a few preselected ones, and you cannot choose your own picture.

Quick and easy meetings.

5,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: It is a very easy to use tool, very stable and that allows there to be a fluidity in any meeting that is maintained through it. You can make use of features such as video, screen sharing, audio and chat.

Vorteile:

You can make use of the tool for the administration of a work team. It is so easy to use that you can use it every day and even stay online all day.

Nachteile:

Being a quick-use tool, it lacks more important features that as a user part of a work team, you might need. This is the case of file management.

Wonderful if you can stay in the free version

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

It's easy to use and there's no explanation needed when you invite a customer to your room, plus I love the fact that you have your custom room url.

Nachteile:

The limit of 4 people is really tight and forces you to upgrade. Since when I decided to leave it, they integrated a better pricing plan that allows to pay for the room instead of paying per user and that's much better.

Finally a screen-sharing tool that doesn't require an extension installation

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I have had numerous issues with my research participants dropping off, not being able to connect or getting frustrated because of the video call software. Not having to to explain in entire paragraphs to participanta how to connect is wonderful!

Vorteile:

No need to install an extension. It's simplicity, particularly since we have participants of various technical capabilities

Nachteile:

Haven't found anything yet! But - you still need the app to share your screen on mobile. Recordings cost extra (but still affordable).

Whereby is the underdog of video platforms

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: My company is a music lesson platform, custom-built for music lessons. Whenever we are running into technical issues or the student's bandwidth/connection is not strong enough, we love using Whereby as a backup.

Vorteile:

-Easy to use -Pricing plans are more affordable than Zoom -Love how you can brand and create private rooms

Nachteile:

-Download is required on mobile phone -Brand is more unknown, so there's a mini learning phase in the beginning of the meeting for new users -Wish everyone can record. Not just the owner of the account.

Whereby works where others don't

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

Whereby helps me talk to people who don't have access to a desktop client like what Zoom has. It also helps me start meetings more fluidly.

Nachteile:

It lacks a lot of features products like Zoom have such as selective sharing and audio sharing.

Great to start out with.

4,0 vor 9 Monaten

Kommentare: We used Whereby in the early days of video streaming. We have had different meetings clash into others which was difficult to prevent. The quality of audio and video were amazing and I loved the simplicity overall of the product.

Vorteile:

It's really easy to use and get setup with. I simply love how you have a room URL to give out to others rather than some weird dynamic link.

Nachteile:

It's basic featured with a lot more offered by other software. The simplicity is great unless you are looking for a lot more.

A reliable and easy-to-use solution to host video calls

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Whereby has been a solid solution to easily organize and host consulting calls and "virtual coffees". Its ease of use, and the fact that can be used both on computer, as well as on tablet and smartphone, make it a no-brainer and a tool that should be in every digital business owner's toolkit.

Vorteile:

I had been using a wide variety of video conferencing tools before I started using Whereby and the things I found have made a difference are: — the array of features: you can create customized and branded "virtual rooms" where to host calls, you can have one-on-one and group calls and you can do so both through the web-based version and the smartphone version of Whereby — ease of use for both the conference call host and participants: it's incredibly easy to organize your first video conferencing call and have people join it, especially because there's no download nor installation required for them to use the web version of Whereby — web and apps: some video conferencing tools are available only through their web version, while Whereby lets you have calls with your computer, as well as with your smartphone or tablet through the mobile device app

Nachteile:

The one thing I don't think is ideal about Whereby is the fact that Call Recording is an add-on feature. I wouldn't have an issue with it being an add-on feature available for the Whereby Pro Plan. However, even if one purchases the Pro Plan, he/she needs to purchase Call Recording as a separate add-on (which cannot be bought as a standalone feature). So you'd end up paying for two separate things: for the Pro Plan and for the Call Recording feature.

The best in

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: BEFORE:
"Hey, what's your account?" "I don't find you" "Witch one of these 3 old Skype accounts is the new one?"
*THREE HOURS LATER*
"Hey, here we are"
NOW:
"Click on this link" "Hey nice, it took like 3 seconds and I'm not frustrated"

Vorteile:

YOUR INTERLOCUTORS DON'T NEED AN ACCOUNT. Or software. Or your nickname. You simply have to send them a short link like appear.in/**yourname** and that's it.

Nachteile:

None. It's a super simple and easy to use solution. Maybe, the fact that not everyone is using it, so sometimes you're forced in use other bad conference solutions.

WHEREBY Review

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: It can be used by those whom have minimal computing knowledge and exposure especially clients or business partners above a certain age whom are not very comfortable with the technology. Therefore it is very much time saving for both ends.

Vorteile:

This is a useful service. It's simple to use, it's quick, and it uses very little of the machine's and connection's resources. I've used it with connections as slow as 1Mbps and I was still able to share screen and video , although not the best of quality, but it works. It's a great place to hold meetings.

Nachteile:

The video and audio quality could use some improvement; they're not the best, and they can be slow, dragging, and crashing.

Simple, Solid, Effective Product.

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Facilitating really solid communication via a remote needs. We were on Zoom for a while but realized its just too complicated for what it offers.

Vorteile:

The ease of use of Whereby is the best part of it. No downloading software, no adding extensions, no asking people to install anything. Everyone can join in really simple. It really helps connecting with clients quickly and efficiently.

Nachteile:

There's not much to dislike, the simplicity of it makes it that easy. Sometimes the connections are spotty.

hasn't changed in the last 24 months - but still great

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It's a great product for power users but some more conveniences as mentioned would make it irreplaceable. Don't focus on embedding software - screensharing can show any software, it doesn't need to have native support.
Ambient noise is a problem for new users so 'mute' training is something I have to administer to the 20+ people who have adopted on my recommendation.

Vorteile:

Single click start and better video experience than skype. Re-instating YouTube 'play together' is a highlight

Nachteile:

simple fixes/changes as suggested 24 months ago haven't occurred: - 'v' key to toggle video feed like the 'm' key - a sound indicator on someones window to show they are broadcasting sound (will help detect/identify ambient sound)

Web meeting solution

5,0 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: I sought a software that allowed my customers to view my screen live or join a video conference without having to install any software. Many people's personal or corporate computers don't allow them to download software, which makes zoom impossible to use. So Whereby makes everything much simpler and straightforward.

Vorteile:

Whereby appeals to me because it is simple to utilize and includes multiple beneficial features. It's great because there's no need for a download or special access. I also appreciate having a unique URL that I can share.

Nachteile:

The free version is very limited i wish they could unlock more features for free users, otherwise it's all good.

Good and easy basic video conferencing software

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We use it instead of google hangouts some times, especially when the meetings are internal of the company. For example we know what room we have to go for the weekly meeting and we just open the tap at that url when the time is due.

Vorteile:

It's really easy to use, you can setup you "room" on a specific url and you just share that url with the other people. That's literally it, you don't even have to make other people signup/login.

Nachteile:

Nothing really, it's pretty easy to use and I haven't noticed any deal breakers so far. I started using it as an individual when it was called appear.in and I never had a problem with it.

Simple, always handy

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Love it, simple, efficient, never had an issue.

Vorteile:

Never had a call fail with Appear.in. It is also very simple to invite business partners using (free) custom links. Honestly, it's simplicity makes it a no brainer for us

Nachteile:

If the URL is taken, rooms should not be available if the admin is not present. It happens we used someone else's URL for months.Therefore, when we upgraded to a paid membership, we were advised our long time link was taken and couldn't be used with Pro features.

Terrific tool

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It's been a great ride so far.

Vorteile:

It's been really easy to set up an interview between our clients (hiring managers) and the candidates, you don't have to ask for Skype users and go back and forward with emails sharing that information, you only have to set up a "conference room" and share that link, that's it!

Nachteile:

It's almost perfect, I just wish there's some chrome extension or email/calendar client plug-in to make it even easier.

Super fast and easy connection

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I really love the services that Whereby offers. Really easy to use and facilitates solid communications remotely. You all should try it.

Vorteile:

So easy to use, and requires little effort to get connected. Also people you are connecting with do not need an account, all you have to do is send a link and they are in the meeting. I really love the simplicity and the custom room makes it fancy to me. It’s worth the money

Nachteile:

There really isn’t much to dislike with Whereby. My only gross is that the limit of four people isn’t really ideal for people who work with big companies.

Has come troubles with new camera configurations, and when I have 2 o more webcam connected. The same with heaphones. I have my laptop connected with Bosse Quitecomfort Bluethoot, another Bluethoot speakers and plgged headphones and thats causing troubles.

amazing tool

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I am a Psychologist and Career Consultant. I work with individual sessions, attending people across the country and this makes my life better because when I depended exclusively on Skype I was having trouble providing smooth call with no sound and internet problems, sometimes we used to lost productivity due to performance connection problems.

Vorteile:

The things I like most are: appear is hands-on, simply and online. Doesn't need login or download to new participants. I work remotely and its really make difference on my productivity.

Nachteile:

The only thing I don't like is the fact I can not integrate with Calendly .

Great Meeting Software

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: We utilize this software for remote working employees and it has made a huge difference in the ability to save travel time to the office.

Vorteile:

No downloads and works first try in your browser. We use it internally on a daily basis. We also have special rooms that we use for customer meetings.

Nachteile:

There is no option to pay for call in support. Internally we don't require this, but some customers don't have computers with microphones that work etc., and it would be useful for them to be able to login to the meeting to see our screens but call in for voice.

Appear.in Review

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: As it is simple to use my experience with it is great.

Vorteile:

This application has helped me to stay connected to my family in different country. I was so pissed with other applications and it came to my rescue. The video and audio quality is unmatchable. It is super simple to form a meeting group, my parents who are not that well versed with technology use it with great ease.

Nachteile:

At time the connectivity becomes an issue. Otherwise, it is good. It can also add multiple features.

Making my life easy

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I use it multiple times per day. Our entire team has become accustomed to using Apprear.in as our central meeting location. We were using Hangouts prior and this has become much more efficient. My connection quality is as expected 99% of the time & outside users gain access without hindrances. As you can see I am a big fan.

Vorteile:

Ease of use, simple for low tech users, fast for our team, centralization, no user accounts or logins

Nachteile:

I have to search for items, no real cons. Switching between small and large rooms can confuse some users.
