Freemium online meeting & collaboration software

4.7/5 (31 reviews)

Blizz Overview

Blizz is a meeting and collaboration platform designed for remote and global teams, enabling high quality online meetings for up to 300 participants. The web-based software offers features for meeting recording, screen sharing, and Outlook integration for one-click meetings. The platform is accessible from anywhere, via any internet connected desktop or mobile device with a web browser.

Blizz allows users to start and join meetings without having to sign up for an account, and users can begin a conference with a single click from a chat or through a contacts list. All users are provided with a unique personal meeting ID that can be sent to colleagues or friends, inviting them to join the meeting. Attendees can call from high-quality VoIP, or free local dial-in phone numbers, and mix both VoIP and phone.

Entire screens or only selected applications can be shared from any Windows PC or Mac, and viewed by other members via any PC, Mac, Android or iOS mobile device. Users can send files to participants during the meeting, and stay connected before and after meetings through instant messaging and chat. The whiteboard feature allows users to mark up their screen during meetings, and user rights can be setup for speaking, chatting and file sharing.

Blizz ensures security with end-to-end session encryption and trusted device verification at login, as well as optional two factor authentication.

Pros

- I can connect with multiple people even with the free version.
- Other apps often overwhelm new users with the multitude of features. In the end you don’t become more efficient because it’s too complicated to use. Blizz is very basic as a simple communications tool and it’s not confusing.
- The app doesn’t take up much space on my SmartPhone so I don’t feel bad asking others to download it too.
- The video quality is impressive in terms of color and clarity.
- It’s so easy to record audio or video so I don’t even take notes of meetings anymore.
- It syncs across all my devices.

Cons

- I work mostly on my SmartPhone but the mobile version doesn’t show all the menu options available on my computer.
- The mobile version didn’t show any tutorials so I’m not sure if I’m missing out on any features.
- Not many people use this yet so I have to ask new clients or team members to download it first.
- There is a slight delay on audio.
- I only use Gmail and I still need to figure out how to send invitations from that platform.

Just what I needed to help me manage my startup business. It's very convenient and easy to use.

I’m the owner of my business, so I use this app to manage and train my team.

Pros

When I started my online writing business, I knew I needed an app that would allow me to communicate clearly with my team members in more ways that just email or Skype. I needed something that offered more options, and something that everyone could use with ease. That’s when I found Blizz. This app is great for doing online business meetings, and keeping in touch with my team members. Everyone has an easy time using it with its simple setup. The HQ video calling comes in handy a lot. Unlike other apps I’ve tried, this one works great with both Android and iPhone, which is really important when you have a big team of people that use different phones. Not only this, but it can be used on a computer or other devices as well.
This app has saved me a lot of money and hassle since I started using it for my startup business. I don’t have to worry about coming up with a meeting place for every meeting or that any other app will let me down.

Cons

I don’t like that you can’t add any contacts unless the person first has their Blizz app account set up, but this wasn’t a huge problem.

Well-designed, highly intuitive piece of software. Very new product but shows a lot of potential.

Looks great, very easy to use and works seamlessly across all kinds of devices.

Pros

- Really intuitive layout and design. I skipped the tutorial and help sections and had absolutely no problem figuring out all the features.

- Simple interface. The interface isn't cluttered with unnecessary/confusing buttons, but still has just about every feature that you could realistically need from video conferencing software.

- Links up seamlessly with other participants on mobile devices, different platforms (e.g. Mac/PC/Android), and people on the phone. Very useful for a scattered team and cross-site collaborations.

- Secured connection, so you can confidently share sensitive data.

- Great live text chat feature for when you don't want to interrupt someone else's flow.

- Ability to add up to 300 participants to a meeting. Not something that I or the vast majority of users would ever realistically exceed.

Cons

- It's a relatively new product, so the developers may have to iron out some kinks as time goes on (although none are obvious to me at this stage).

- Quite a distinct feel to other more established software of this kind. While I think it's very easy to get your head around, the general interface may confuse some/not be to everybody's tastes.

- There could be something like an in-depth interactive tutorial to exhibit all of the less-obvious features. Again, this isn't something that I needed, but it could feasibly help some users.

In each audit topic we have Blizz and it helps us to have a great experience with all the departments. Even if these are in different regions. Its easy use and quick access makes it quite appropriate for corporate issues.

Pros

Its easy use meets all the requirements you are looking for to keep your conferences with your business group. Its operation in mobile devices is very good. Video conferencing works correctly even though you have more than 100 people added.

Cons

The disincorporation of the blackboard is what I really hope it will come back was very useful and even a voting function could be considered adding in future updates.
