1. Appear.in 

Corey EulasIn our business, we’ve experimented with a number of video meeting services like Slack and Skype but have found that appear.in is the most dead-simple app on the market. It’s blazing fast, requires no login and even no registration for a truly one-click quick meeting setup. The best part? It’s free. – Corey EulasFactorial Digital 

2. Google Hangouts 

Tucker CottinghamAt Lawyaw, we use Google Hangouts whenever possible for our video meetings and initial employee interviews (if remote). We find that people are generally familiar with Google Hangouts and it has been very reliable for us, doesn’t require installing a lot of different software, and most importantly, it’s free. Using practical, easy-to-use tools helps us focus on building our own products. – Tucker CottinghamLawyaw

3. GoToMeeting 

Dave NevogtSince our team is 100 percent remote, it is important for us to take full advantage of communication tools. GoToMeeting is a great option when it comes to video meetings. It features desktop or app sharing, advanced scheduling options, up to six high-definition video feeds and clear audio.

4. Meeting Owl

Erik BullenOwl Labs just launched Meeting Owl, and it has been a fantastic experience. No more tech issues and dropped calls. And all remote participants can collaborate interactively and feel like they are part of — as opposed to looking into — the meeting. Most importantly, it’s easy to set up, and just works. – Erik BullenMageMail 

5. Slack 

Ben LangSlack has a fantastic built-in video chat functionality. They released it fairly recently. If your company uses Slack religiously, it’s very practical and painless. – Ben LangSpoke 

6. Skype 

Abhilash PatelMy preference is Skype. Whether you are in town or working remotely, this user-friendly service is reliable, an easy download (if one does not already have it) and even easier to use. – Abhilash PatelAbhilash.co 

7. WhatsApp 

Diego OrjuelaBy using WhatsApp as a suggested video conferencing tool, you are immediately creating an avenue for people to continue the conversation via instant message. If you are not previously connected to the person via WhatsApp, by hosting that first video meeting, you are opening an avenue to maintain an informal, instant communication with that person after the call is done. – Diego OrjuelaCables & Sensors 

8. Zoom 

Leila LewisZoom is my favorite video meeting platform. It’s easy for multiple people to join the video, allows you to create personalized links for your meeting space, and has great picture and sound quality. – Leila LewisBe Inspired PR
