What is Whereby?

Whereby is the easiest to use and most reliable video meeting tool on the market. With no app or installs required - and no login for guests - Whereby users don't have to deal with clunky downloads or learning new technology. It's as simple as clicking the link and joining the meeting directly in your browser.

Key benefits of using Whereby

  • Integrate with third party applications Trello, Slack, and Youtube to share URLS for video conversations, add content to presentations, and more.

  • Benefit from screen sharing and auto fullscreen for Pro and Business plans, meaning users can give presentations alongside pre-prepared slides and all participants can view them in real time.

  • Invite participants to video conversations simply by creation a custom URL link and sharing it via Slack, email, social media, or any other means of communication.

    Pros
    It is a very stable videoconferencing tool that ensures good performance and quality on all connections.
    Overall it was a great experience using this service, its also a good opportunity to be able to make new friends and talk with people from other parts of the world.
    Great alternative to Skype and the like as it's faster to enter in a custom room and begin talking with quality video.
    Cons
    After the last update the user's access page was very confused. The plug-in installation is quite confusing for customers who have little technical knowledge.
    Maybe, the fact that not everyone is using it, so sometimes you're forced in use other bad conference solutions.
    Ambient noise is a problem for new users so 'mute' training is something I have to administer to the 20+ people who have adopted on my recommendation.

    Whereby Connect you and your team fast and easy

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    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)

    An easy to use video conferencing solution with good quality

    Reviewed 9 months ago

    Whereby is a quick and easy meeting tool working seemlessly, stable and looking very nice. It also offers a lot of useful features.

    Pros

    What I like about Whereby is, that it is very easy to use and contains a lot of useful features. The interfaces looks very good and users usually get how it works while using it for the first time. The video quality as well as audio is very good. I would even say it's the best quality from the video conferencing solutions I've used so far. The meeting page is very customizable with colors and background images. It also features useful features like breakout-rooms, noise reduction, integration of several collaboration tools, screen sharing and a very nice chat function. The prizing is, starting at $6,99, very cheap. As well nice is, that the meeting url always stays the same. And nobody needs to install any software for using it. It just works in the browser.

    Cons

    Whereby could use a little makeover in case of the android app. It hasn't been updated for quite a while. It's basically a full screen browser. It would be nice, if that could be solved. Helpful would be also, if there could be shown more than just 12 people on camera.

    A good tool but there is better out there

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Whereby allowed me to get started with video conferences and online meetings. However, I switched to Zoom for more stability and functionalities.

    Pros

    Whereby has a user-friendly and simple-to-use interface? It is easy to set up a meeting and send invitations. You can receive notifications when users enter the room (customizable). Rooms can be locked or open, which is convenient to give you more control over who can come in. The quality and speed are standard, however, I had to deal with broken-up communication more often than with Zoom. At first, I thought web-based technology would not be great, but it turned out to work well and be rather user-friendly.

    Cons

    Resources, features, and functionalities are more limited than Zoom. It was always a bit frustrating not to be able to share a specific window but to share the whole screen (at least from Safari). The background image (called "effect" instead of background image, which is the frame image and not what appears behind you)is limited to a few preselected ones, and you cannot choose your own picture.

    Quick and easy meetings.

    Reviewed 9 months ago

    It is a very easy to use tool, very stable and that allows there to be a fluidity in any meeting that is maintained through it. You can make use of features such as video, screen sharing, audio and chat.

    Pros

    You can make use of the tool for the administration of a work team. It is so easy to use that you can use it every day and even stay online all day.

    Cons

    Being a quick-use tool, it lacks more important features that as a user part of a work team, you might need. This is the case of file management.
