Pros

I love using Samba because it's super easy to use - to create meetings, invite people and most of all, I love that it is browser based - no need to install anything.
I also love how easy it is to set up and join meetings. If I have a meeting with a potential client, I can organise it and send out invites in minutes.
I recommend Samba Live because it's very easy to use. In particular, I appreciate the fact that you can use it directly on the browser, without the need to install any particular program.

Pros

What I enjoy most about Zoom is its ease of use, ability to record meetings, and its affordable price point.
The cost benefit is very good and ease of connection, I can share the screen during meetings, and excellent for my work.
The fact that it is easy to learn, as well as the quit and helpful response from customer service. I am glad it was recommended to me and I will continue to help others by doing the same.

Cons

Some of the feature is hard to use, and the lacks of video or manual guides of the software make thing harder.
There is a lot information on the website, which makes it unclear. The software is not free.

Cons

I think we were so overwhelmed by the zoom at this bad time that there is nothing to worry about.
If I do have problems sharing my screen, etc. then I have to typically leave zoom and re-enter the meeting. It always solves the problem but is an annoyance.
There has been a few times where Zoom doesn't work well with my internet and I'll randomly be dropped from calls with no warning.

Feature-rich and easy to use

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Samba Live is the perfect alternative to any video conferencing software which needs downloads to work properly. It allows you to start meetings right from the browser, which makes it easy for participants to join your webinar or online meeting. You don't have to think anymore of if participants will be able to install the video conferencing software or configuring it the right way. They just click on a link and can join the meeting. I also enjoy the rich set of features for interactive webinars/meetings like the whiteboards, Q&A and screen sharing (all works directly from the browser). It's also super easy to plan everything in advance.

Cons

The UX of the dashboard (backend) could be as great as the meeting platform itself. At the moment, it looks a bit old-fashioned although everything works seamlessly.

Absolutely exceeds the needs of this freelance writer

I use this for client meetings, and I use it to collaborate with other consultants on big projects. It's always streamlined the process of being able to reliably communicate on a high quality and "in-house" platform. It's allowed me to maintain a much more professional image when working online.

Pros

The best thing about Samba Live is its customizability. Giving me a video streaming platform that I can make my own-- and brand as my own-- is key to landing clients

Cons

There's not a ton of information online about Digital Samba outside of their website.

Collaboration, synchronous learning, digital competency.

Pros

Teaching middle school students, I appreciate the ease of use of Zoom. There was a slight learning curve at the begining, but all of my students are able to independently utilize Zoom. I love the screen sharing option as I often share a presentation or information. The breakout rooms have also been amazing! It allows my students to still do group work or projects together.

Cons

I would appreciate if as a teacher I could get a transcript of what is written in the chat. I know I can turn that function off, but it would be interesting to see.

Zoom Filling in Big Time

Reviewed 2 years ago

Zoom has been really great and has simplified the digital meeting process considerably.

Pros

Zoom has made online meetings (which is now the norm) super easy. You can quickly send out invites, share your screen, and a variety of other options. I now use it for team meetings, work meetings, classes, and even some religious meetings. The pandemic changed a lot of things, but Zoom really stepped up to give everyone the functionality they need.

Cons

The process of joining a meeting can be a little confusing at times. Sometimes you need a meeting ID and password and other times the link works by itself. This is likely a setup issue on my end, but other than that, everything seems to work great.

In a nutshell,you can connect with ur work colleagues and clients via zoom meetings anywhere around the world and work effortlessly.

Pros

I have been using zoom meetings since last 1.5years to 2years as the pandemic situation didn’t allow us to work together in person due to risk factors at work. We as a team of practice have been working together on this platform by sharing screens and sharing all the data daily. Video quality is just amazing. Its very much user friendly too.

Zoom has helped tremendously since way long,I can not complain much about this software as its a boon in this era of social distancing and digital collaborating.

Intuitive for Small and Large Businesses

Reviewed a year ago

In today's digital age, we truly could not run our business without the help of Zoom.

Pros

Zoom is easy to set up, supports large audiences, and integrates with Google Calendar and Gmail to ensure you never miss an important meeting. Its ease of use has significantly reduced roadblocks in getting non-tech-savvy clients onto video calls.

Cons

While Zoom is fully scalable for large businesses, prices increase drastically as a subscription-based service. It's also worth mentioning that Zoom uses 720p video quality for speakers rather than 1080p, which some may dislike.

Zoom for large groups.

Reviewed a year ago

Overall experience is positive.

Pros

A large group can be effectively managed. Raising digital hand for commenting, having full control over muting and un-muting if desired.

Cons

There are challenges when having to mute and un-mute individuals in a large group. The video thumbnails and locations in the participant list are always jumping around. It would be a large administrative improvement if there was a way to zero in on just the participants that raise their hand and be ready to mute and un-mute easily as well as lower hands manually.

Distance Meetings & Learning made possible!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Students have really appreciated the ability to connect with teachers in a “live” lesson while distance learning. We have been able to maintain some sense of connection & community. I can work with my team, see their faces, while collaborating on projects in Google Drive. I also love that I can record sessions to post & share with students or coworkers who miss a meeting/class!

Pros

It is fairly intuitive and easy to use. It makes it possible for me to teach & attend meetings during this Covid-19 time of virtual school/work. I like the virtual background capability, multiple users can share screens, and you can customize the appearance of screen sharing with gallery view, and can zoom in on screen shares.

Cons

It can be challenging for some of my students who are not digital natives. Those not comfortable w technology can struggle to connect to audio from phones as well as use the chat from phones.

An absolute must in the arsenal of an SME entrepreneur

Reviewed 3 years ago

I live in a country whose economy is fueled by the SME market. With the rapid digital adoption seen in the last few years a product like Zoom is a perfect fit. The free version helps the digital savvy entrepreneur use a high quality, reliable video conferencing service without having to fork out any money upfront.

Pros

I have used the free version when I was a freelance consultant and this product greatly cut down the need for constant onsite meetings with clients.

Cons

Yes the free version has a timeout after 40 minutes but even if you opt for one of the pay plans its still highly affordable.

A solid plug-and-play experience. A few tech issues, bot overall a good, reliable platform that's worthy of being today's default video call service.

Pros

It's the de facto platform, works well 99% of the time, and syncs well with digital calendars and scheduling software. (Mine works well with Calendly).

Cons

The links sometimes duplicate, sending users into different rooms. It also has some hiccups when it comes to having multiple Zoom-associated emails - switching accounts isn't as smooth as it should be.

Zoom - A new normal

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's a good & user-friendly app and recommended by millions of people. A must-have app for all digital learners and teachers.

Pros

There are so many video conference software widely available and Zoom is completely a different user experience, well developed & maintained video conferencing tool among them. The video quality and stability are key features of zoom. It provides all basic features for online learning and it is user-friendly for both host and participants. Screen sharing is more useful buil-in feature.

Cons

It's hard to find cons on the Zoom app. They need to add some security layers for privacy. Need some more additional free hosting hours for attracting new users and it will use for small scale teacher/lecturers. Need an option for pre-select video quality fpto overcome internet bandwidth restrictions.

Zoom Meetings

My Go-To Software for Online Meetings

Reviewed 3 years ago

An excellent video tool, replaces the need for Google Hangouts, Skype, etc. An essential part of my digital toolbox for my freelancing career.

Pros

Online calls are a very important part of my business - I have web design clients in countries other than the one I live in, so every new client will end up on a video call with me at some stage. Zoom handles every need I have for video call software. It can have multiple users on one call and has many 'sharing' options including letting me share my screen which is very handy. The feature where you have multiple users with their cameras on, and it only shows you the video feed of the person currently speaking, is great. People can join calls from their phones, even if they don't have the app by calling a phone number - very handy! Works on many devices. I use the free version and so far have not had the need to upgrade which is brilliant. Hats off to Zoom!

Cons

No complaints - I haven't had any issues with it yet or had a demand for a feature it doesn't have.

Zoom for digital meetings

Reviewed a year ago

It is one of the best software for digital meetings managing to establish itself as a fundamental program in these times of pandemic.

Pros

It presents an interactive and easy way to enter how to create digital meetings. It provides tools that facilitate interaction such as screen sharing sections, the option to write on the screen and the option to record and then reproduce everything that has been said in the meeting.

Cons

Most of the problems presented are derived from the connection, in my case I have had problems connecting through the use of a 4G network

Great general software

Reviewed a year ago

Zoom meetings has satisfied a majority of my needs and is an incredibly built piece of software.

Pros

Zoom is great because it provides so much flexibility for digital events. Everything from class, to meetings, to office hours, are all very well suitable for Zoom.

Cons

While the software is very flexible, this makes it challenging for specific applications. Most notably, events are difficult to host on Zoom meetings and require separate webinar account.
