StartMeeting overview

What is StartMeeting?

StartMeeting is an online meeting and conferencing solution which enables screen sharing, audio, and video communication between up to 1000 participants. The platform allows users to connect from their web browser, native mobile apps and desktop apps, and integrates with Slack, Google Calendar and Outlook.

With StartMeeting, participants can join conference calls through dial-in or VoIP, with local dial-in numbers available for a range of countries. HD video can be broadcast and watched through any web-enabled device, with active speaker technology to draw attention to which participant is speaking. Screen sharing tools enable the display of a specific window, app, or user’s entire screen to all participants, and users can highlight and annotate parts of the screen to draw attention.

StartMeeting allows users to record and play back their conferences, and share recordings either privately or publicly. Meeting rooms can be customized with company branding, colors, and profile pictures, and users can manage custom greetings and music to be played to participants when they dial in. Plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar simplify meeting scheduling and participant invitations.

I have been using StartMeeting for years now and it has always been dependable whether having a call with participants here in the US or Internationally.

Pros
I like how easy it is to install, use, and explain to others who are new to StartMeeting.

Cons
I do not have anything negative to say about the software, it works great on computer and phone.

As a dental hygienist transitioning into the role of a consultant, my career was about teeth not technology, so I welcomed the ease of adaptability and the easy learning curve for this software. Clients with whom I work also appreciate how easy it is to join meetings, thereby minimizing the resistance to remote trainings.

Pros
The ability to record sessions, and the options for connecting into the meeting.

Cons
There is not the ability to conduct polls.

Sometimes the quality of sound may not be the best but it is on rare occasions.

I love the Video Call that is available, and record features that I can keep in the Broadcaster until I need it, it's easy to dowload the files to share.

Pros
I like the Start Meeting icon, it's so easy to download to any computer and then you don't have to go to the website to log in everytime you want to use the service.

Cons
Technical issues like callers getting bumped off the line multiple times, including the Host Haswhen we have more callers on the line.
