About appear.in

Whereby is a video conferencing tool designed to enhance collaboration between remote or distributed teams via web or mobile. The web-based platform allows users to create rooms and invite members to video chat via a custom link.

Whereby features include; screen sharing, adjustable privacy settings (lock/unlock rooms), custom branding, and integrations with third party platforms such as Slack, Trello, and YouTube. Guests can access video conversations using a custom link which can be shared via email, chat, or any other platform, and there’s no need for individual logins or passwords when accessing a chat. Users can, however, setup locked rooms which have customizable privacy settings including guest screening and authentication.

Whereby has various plans to suit many budgets and needs. Conversations can contain up to 12 participants with unlimited screen sharing and automatic full screen so that members can give presentations with ease. Users can also customize the layout of their conversation window using a drag and drop interface to move videos and participants, and resize the window of each participant. Customizable branding allows enterprises to create their own branded video chats by adding business logos and color schemes.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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)

    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"

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    It has to be worked on. The idea is nice and neat, but the competition is far better. Start by organizing the screens on the panel, cut off the mic automatically if the participant go silent etc.

    Pros

    I liked the simplicity. Reminded me of the initial versions of Skype.

    Cons

    When I subscribed, to be able to bring more people into the room, it was messy, there was no way I could organize the screens like I do when I'm using Zoom or Skype. Suddenly, my webcam wasn't visible for the participants. I admit that there was a lot of emails exchanged to try and solve the problem, but it was never solved. By that stage I had paid over 70 pounds for the subscription, and decided to cancel something I could never use. No money back was offered.

    Wonderful if you can stay in the free version

    Reviewed on 2020/12/17

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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