"Easy to use no signup needed, doesn't consume huge computer performance"

What do you like best?

You can create your own room and claim a custom URL for your room which is really awesome. Easy to use. People don't need to sign in to join the conference. You don't need to install a software like many other conference tools. Doesn't consume a lot of the computer performance. You can connect by phone. It's the cheapest conference tool that you can get. I already did a comparison between the top 10 conference softwares and this had the lowest price and the most features.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations to the number of the participants that can join a meeting at the same time. If you are looking for international dial-in, I'm afraid appear.in doesn't have this feature, but you can still reach out to them and consult this question as I'm not 100% sure. It may be that it's there but I couldn't find it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to have all the tools that you need and you have a low budget to spend a conference tool this is the best option. I did a comparison between 10 different conference tools and this was the cheapest with most of the features we were looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having the ability to lock a room once a meeting has started and all the participants have joined. It's the lowest price conference software out of the top 10 tools. It gives us the possibility to share the screen or video share with ease. The most important benefit of using appear.in is saving money while at the same time we have all the tools that we need for a conference meeting.

"Easy to work with"

What do you like best?

The program is simple in its work. A large number of participants can take in one webinar broadcast, it's a pity, that other programs can not afford this. There is a free trial. The quality of the sound and video are good. It's possible to record a video and send it by reference. Live chat works well and simplifies communication with webinars. There is a mobile software, if your visitors are on the road, they can still connect to the broadcast via the phone or tablet.

What do you dislike?

Because of technical problems conferences were broken, it happens several times. At the start you need to get used to the settings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a good program for webinars or online conferences, then appearin will suit you. In order for conferences to pass without problems, you will need a good Internet connection and a high-quality microphone. If there are problems it works, the support service always reacts quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use the program to conduct online conferences every week, as our team works in different countries. Also, we regularly conduct online training for new employees and get in touch with our customers. The program simplified our work.

What Video Conferencing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"One of the most enjoyable casual video calling experiences out there"

What do you like best?

Simplicity, ease of use and the fact that appear.in just works.

You can connect using a browser without installing anything, and you can make up whatever URL you want and send it out to the people you need in the session.

What do you dislike?

Not sure there's anything specific.

I myself prefer lighter backgrounds and the default one of appear.in is dark in nature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it out. The Pro plans are on the cheap side and offer some great enhancements like the number of users in a single meeting and the ability to record.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Meeting with people online for my business.

I hate using Skype, and for me, something like appear.in makes it super simple to be able to conduct a first meeting with someone without having to put him on my buddy list or have any of us register to a service.

"Easy,Fast and secure!"

What do you like best?

To use appear.in its just with enjoy. Registration is quick and takes couple of seconds. Software is fully web-based, so the platform does not have to be downloaded onto computer.I like everything on it.

What do you dislike?

About me.I don't have negative comments. But I would like to tell to users who are fighting in any way. Dont be worry tools comes with free support, so people who are whom meet with problems in any way will be anytime get help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best software which i know, allows a lot. For example to carry forward your meeting, send invitations, and manage the registration of your attendees is so simple. Recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I always in control, with review settings that allow me to change how responses are displayed from no reply, ant to show me counts and percentages. Much easy. So Incredibly secure webinar platform.

"appear.in is tool for quick and easy video chats! "

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to connect with multiple people by video chat. The best feature is the ability to generate/keep chat room links - our team using the same chat room everyday for our daily stand ups. We recently upgraded to the premium version and also really enjoy our company branding for when we do external meetings.

What do you dislike?

We do occasionally have issues with connection, such as some users not having sound or video. We usually troubleshoot by restarting browser, but is inconvenient based on how often we use the product. And of course, it is a little awkward when someone stumbles across the wrong video chat and interrupts a meeting. The other major setback is that larger corporations won't use appear.in. We are a startup, so it's is great for internal use, but we end up having to use other party's conference solutions when connecting with bigger companies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team has always struggled with finding an easy-to-use video conference solution that allows us to have quick meetings with our distributed team. We found appear.in last summer and use it everyday! We have different chat rooms for different working groups and send out external links when doing interviews or other remote meetings. Nothing to install and also great mobile app for when on-to-go!

"Appear.in for Simple Quick Video Conferencing"

What do you like best?

The quick setup. Appear.in makes it quite simple to set. Since it is all browser-based, users can spend more time planning and initiating the vudeo-conference rather than tech setup. The "knock" feature is also a welcome addition to block unwanted attendees or give the moderator a little more control.

What do you dislike?

Limited attendees. I could see appear.in used in a number of ways with students and virtual classes but the limited number on who can join a room would may it difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great alternatime to Google Hangouts, Skype, and GotoMeeting. Simple setup and ease of use make it a top choice among students and those with a quick thing to take care of.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is often difficult to get everyone together in the same room at the same time. In education, there are moments when parents, teachers, and support staff need to meet regularly. This helps Bridget that gap.

"Great and easy remote conversations"

What do you like best?

It's great that the people you want to talk doesn't need to have an account of a certain service so you can have a conversation with them, no signups or logins, just go to a specific room link and you're there. The video and audio are very smooth, event smoother than other similar software.

What do you dislike?

It's kind of mood killer that with the platform simplicity and ease, you have to install a browser extension in order to share your screen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is as easy as going to a specific link and start talking. It has a web application and mobile application for on the go meetings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Meetings with company members around the globe are piece of cake, while it is less than 12 (8 in the free plan). Also inviting prospects for interviews is way easier than making them open a Skype or similar account.

"Damn simple yet complete video meetings"

What do you like best?

No need to sign up. No need to install anything. Appear.in simply works.

Just share an URL and go. Easier to use than Google Hangouts.

Complete set of features even in the free version.

Very good audio/video quality overall.

The concept of "rooms" is also a godo idea because they're always active. People can meet "at that room" as it was a physical room in the office, without need to share the URL again, open a dedicated meeting, etc.

What do you dislike?

Login system is kind of madness. A login link needs to be received via email rather than using username & password, this is a pain when more than ore person handles the paid account in the company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Want to get a SIMPLE solution for your web meetings? Appear.in is definitely the best.

Of course, other complex solutions such as Cisco WebEx, Gotomeeting, etc. have more features, but most of the times the main problem with clients is that they can't install anything on their machines, for security reasons.

Appear.in is 100% web based so they don't have to: it works immediately, just after granting the permit to the browser to use microphone and webcam.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Setting up meetings and instant meetings with colleagues and clients.

No need to schedule, invite, make them install extensions or software: it just works.

"Very easy way to share screen with multiple people"

What do you like best?

It only takes one click to share the entire desktop with multiple people. It is also easy to share the link when inviting people, plus the URL link is customizable after appear.in. The design is very straight forward and uncluttered. Very easy to join and leave the room. There is a chat window available if people want to ask questions.

What do you dislike?

There are no options to annotate, only a chat box and audio if you want to describe something on the screen. The stickers are a little cheesy, not too useful for professional applications

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great place to start when you need a free web conference with screen sharing set up very quickly. Can get going within a minute.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Appear.in is great for web conferencing when a screen share and audio are required. It's a good option when teaching or meeting online (1 on 5 for example). The chat window allows participants to ask questions in the background.

"BEST FREE WEB CONFERENCING TOOL!"

What do you like best?

Appear.in makes is so simple to connect multiple people without having the headache of downloading something or having to grab usernames. Just copy and paste the link and BAM! Also awesome that it has the screen sharing capability as well.

What do you dislike?

There's really nothing not to like. It is a bummer that enterprises have starting blocking it, which requires the use of WebEx in that case. Otherwise, really user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sometimes users will have an issue with connecting audio and mics. This is simple to fix though

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virtual interviews, business meetings with off-site staff

"A great simple solution"

What do you like best?

My favorite part about using appear.in is that you connect with the same URL every time, and there are no complicated set up steps, or codes. We've just bookmarked our unique URL, and jump in whenever we need to have a meeting.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to have multiple rooms within my company without needing a separate URL, which I don't think is an available feature. If we ever had two separate meetings both needing video conferencing, we'd need to use another solution. That said, we have yet to run into that as an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a simple solution, without a lot of bells and whistles, I definitely recommend appear.in. I would say this is a great solution for internal purposes, but you may need something more robust for connecting with clients if you have a mid or larger internal team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have two offices, and several employees that work remotely. We frequently need to connect using appear.in to connect with one another, which is a significant improvement than just a conference call.

"Decent Chat Room"

What do you like best?

Free chat room client with optional sign up? say no more I'm in, this site is very put together on a technical and aesthetic level, it serves as a great substitute to Skype, you can do voice chats, text chats, conference calls, the site works beautifully.

What do you dislike?

as stated previously, it's mostly good if Skype is down for the count on that particular day, while it's a great piece of software a lot of this is made easier to use in Skype, being as how you can use skype as an application on both your phone and the pc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This makes a very nice replacement for Skype, it's simple to use, it requires less screwing around than Teamspeak (thank god) and as stated earlier, you don't need to sign up, meaning if skype is out, you can turn to this as your saviour.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Other Internet conference applications are out? Well here;'s the answer. The benefits of this are that Signing up is optional and you get a lot of features for free,

"Quick, free and simple Google Hangouts/Skype alternative"

What do you like best?

- No registration or downloads required (unless using mobile apps). Literally just open your browser or type in URL given by your partner and you're in a room. Uses HTML5/WebRTC web technologies and runs in your browser, no flash/java required and is cross-platform with Windows/Linux/OSX/iOS and Android. Completely free!

- Up to 8 people can join at once with audio/voice. Great for conferences or just general conversation. Webcam can be used but is not required. Also instant messaging functionality.

- Fun 'Windows Live Messenger' style 'winks'.

- The ability to share your screen with a Google Chrome extension.

What do you dislike?

- No ability to save a room for later or any 'friends' functionality. It would be nice to have the option to create an account and have some additional features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a quick no-frills drop-in Skype/Google Hangouts alternative, this is definitely worth a go. You've got nothing to lose in terms of money or privacy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to communicate with friends, family and colleagues without the hassle of having to download proprietary clients which often are bloated and slow.

"Good service for free"

What do you like best?

Free services, good quality and a really good scree sharing. No account needed so I can invite clients and prospects or candidates. It's just so malleable that it can fit a lot of different need.

What do you dislike?

For a quick call, I now use Slack in app call because it's easier and more convenient, more integrated . Recording and transcoding option would be awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. really. It's so simple and easy to use that it's became kind like a reflex for us to use it to chat. Even for daily standup meeting on a distributed team. It's just perfect for all the need you may have regarding video conferences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a simple way to conduct conference between team members and also a simple solution for call / video conf with client, prospects, candidates without having to give them invite, skype username or whatever.

"SImple, Free Video Conferencing Tool"

What do you like best?

It's free and it works well. Tough to beat that.

What do you dislike?

This app is just a mobile version of the website. Don't call it an app if it truly isn't. Also videos time out after 20 min for non-paid version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth it if you need a no-cost videoconferencing tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to connect voice/face for free. Benefit is that we don't have to pay for a teleconferencing solution if my team is only meeting on a somewhat casual basis.

"Amazing, amazing and amazing."

What do you like best?

Nothing to instal, no software updates, no nothing. Loads in seconds, works on any computer, you can get up to 4 people of a call for free, and 10+ on the paid subscription. Allows for screensharing and has side bar chat box. Additional plus? iOS app that works like a dream.

What do you dislike?

In all honesty the only caveat would be when you get 12 folks on a call- it can get a bit slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it. It's free. You will love it and won't mind paying for the premium account.

"The magic ? No login is required"

What do you like best?

Appear.in provides one of the best way to start a quick meeting. No login is required and most of the browsers are supported: Firefox, Chrome and Opera. No safari yet, but it's ok :)

Mobile apps are available too for iOS and Android, which is a nice point. Didn't find a use case for now.

Claiming a room is also a feature I like: it's easy to customize a claimed room to make it feel like home (or corporate).

What do you dislike?

You can't share your screen. That would be a nice feature for making product demos.

Maybe sharing a webpage or another tab may be technically possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Works best on firefox according to me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making conference calls used to be a pain: mostly because of login.

Appear.in doesn't require your teammates to have a account or a specific application.

"Good service, but can be better"

What do you like best?

I really like the easiness of this service. You share a link and that's it, you're video/mic chatting with your friends or colleagues. Also, plus for screensharing.

What do you dislike?

Even though real-time screensharing is nice, it still works only on Google Chrome; as I use Mozilla Firefox as my main browser, I really expect them to support it. Also, there's some lag sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend you to use this service in order to collaborate better with your colleagues. In order to use all the features, consider using Google Chrome, because of the exclusivity of screensharing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Computer Engineering student, I used appear.in while working in group projects; that way, we could just chat without having to change to the chat tab. Also, there's no need to share Skype information and stuff.

"Easily accessible way to meet virtually"

What do you like best?

I like how you can quickly create a web conference room and invite others to join. At any time, you can set up a meeting and send a link to everyone to join.

What do you dislike?

The quality is sometimes poor. Connection can go in and out and you'll have to rejoin the room. This can get frustrating sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you're somewhere where you have good wifi connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Easiest Conferencing Out There"

What do you like best?

The simplicity. From initial setup to ongoing use, appear.in is the best.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could set up users for the free account, even if the number was limited. That way, everyone didn't have to wait for the admin to let them into a locked room.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of the URL customization. We used our social media username so the team could remember easily.

"Very high quality calls, no installation required!"

What do you like best?

The calls are very high quality, outperforming slack, skype and google hangouts. and the best thing is that you don't need to install anything! I love that you create a room and have a link that you can share with anyone, even if they have never heard of it, it's dead simple to use and totally free.

What do you dislike?

nothing yet, for now it has been great to setup call without having to install anything.

"Simple browser video call and screen sharing FTW "

What do you like best?

So easy to communicate with nothing more required than a decent browser, Internet connection, camera and microphone. Very reliable tool with zero learning required.

What do you dislike?

Can’t share screen of a second browser tab and see other room occupants at same time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When using video conferencing with several people going through one appear.in seat, ensure you set up with a high resolution camera and a microphone placement that reach all attendees comfortably.

What do you like best?

Appear.in works on any device. Desktop, laptop, mobile. You don't need to install anything. You don't need an account. You just hop on...done.

There is no whiteboard feature. I would ike the ability to have a white screen and draw on it for the attendees.

If your connection is slow and you have issues with the video, you can turn off video and go audio only. That will allow you to handle slower network speeds.

"Best video chatting platform ever"

What do you like best?

It is EXTREMELY easy to setup. You can pick any URL you want, and you are ready to chat. No signup/registration is required.

The "watch together" feature for youtube videos is pretty amazing as well.

The video/audio quality is awesome.

Switching to low quality video allows you to chat over extremely poor bandwidths as well(hello Indian colleges).

The ability to support more than 2 users simultaneously is very nice.

What do you dislike?

Unable to control the volume of, or pause the youtube videos in "watch together" mode.

Video tends to freeze sometimes. Has issues when 3 or more people are using the video. Sometimes the owner of the room is able to interact with everyone else, but the other participants are not able to listen to each other.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a shot. You will never go back to using Skype / Hangouts after this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This platform allows me to quickly setup meetings at a moments notice. Due to its ease of use, you do not generally think twice before setting up a video chatroom, unlike with other services where logging in/installing tends to make you rethink.

"Fine for one-on-one, not for large groups"

What do you like best?

Clear video quality for easy communication. Works great for one-on-one meetings between remote team members.

What do you dislike?

Frequent issues with audio not working, not able to include a large group with good functionality.

Run a test to make sure every users' mic/audio is working before an important meeting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Convenient and Stable Video Conferencing."

What do you like best?

I like that I can set up a room, using a custom name, and toggle locked state, for private conferencing. There aren't any noticeable barriers to access, which makes it very convenient for me to use in meetings with a client or colleague.

What do you dislike?

Arrangement and resizing of video feeds and chat could be improved, but it is usable as it is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out, it might just meet your video conferencing/screen sharing needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Video conferencing with clients and colleagues. It is very, very easy to get an appear.in conference going, and just as easy to access. As a consequence, I've been able to realize great savings by having meetings with clients. Troubleshooting computer issues remotely is among them.

What do you like best?

La interfaz y experiencia de usuario no tiene comparación con otras plataformas que he utilizado para realizar videollamadas a traves de html5, super comoda, rapida y eficiente.

What do you dislike?

La limitación de este tipo de plataformas es la cantidad de integrantes en una comunicación y el excesivo consumo de recursos que puede volver casi imposible el uso normal del pc durante la videollamada.

This video chat meeting client allows us the flexibility to communicate with coworkers not in the office. We are able to run the application all day and work as though our coworkers are in the office with us.

What do you like best?

It is incredibly easy to use this app for meetings - just have all the participants go to a link you've specified at the meeting time, and you'll be able to video chat and message each other. No login needed.

What do you dislike?

Any chat logs will be deleted once you leave the browser window and are not recoverable.

Highly recommend for daily stand ups and general video conferencing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for simple, efficient stand up meetings every day, and also easy to use with people outside the company since no login or usernames are required.

The simplicity and the zero-time required to setup or manage connectors or devices. All works as soon as I need. No account.

What do you dislike?

Company policies doesn't allow to use similar tool because they see it as not secure,since everyone could potentially join the channel, until you make it private.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy! No need to being crazy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communications betweens customers but also interaction between developers.

"Free and Reliable!"

What do you like best?

The software is free, allows you to have up to 8 participants, much more reliable than hangouts, customizable background

What do you dislike?

UI could be nicer / more professional. It is not intuitive to make the shared screen full screen and people have trouble viewing my screen. Also, is there a mobile app? Would be great to have a password so that not everyone can use my link without me sharing

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot!

"appear.in is awesome!"

What do you like best?

Appear.in is a simple quick way to video conference with others. It has great features like screen sharing and multi person chats up to 8 people. Works very well and is great for setting up quick conferences in an instant. I personally like the control settings for allowing people to know to be accepted and the chrome app.

What do you dislike?

There can be some lag when chatting with multiple parties. The quality of video isn't the greatest especially when you have a slow internet connection but this is true for most video messengers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this tool when we need to set up quick last minute conferences. It offers us a way to connect with our employees and customers without installing any additional software.

Sometimes the quality of the video can be a little poor using the mobile version (pixelated, screen freezing), depending on location.

No real problems as of yet; a major benefit is the ability to walk around while talking with others (as opposed to my laptop version).

"Similar to other Products"

What do you like best?

It is much easier to share a link than have people configure an app like Skype- moreover, as a Linux user, I appreciate that it works on all platforms.

What do you dislike?

I prefer Rabb.it because it has a Chrome VM inside of the app, to allow people to control content that is not shared on their screen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is much easier to meet with external clients using Appear- because we can send them a link. A great alternative to GoToMeeting, which costs a lot.
