Whereby overview

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.

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 50 participants with unlimited HD 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.

Whereby Connect you and your team fast and easy

Used weekly for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

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.

I really love the services that Whereby offers. Really easy to use and facilitates solid communications remotely. You all should try it.

Pros
So easy to use, and requires little effort to get connected. Also people you are connecting with do not need an account, all you have to do is send a link and they are in the meeting. I really love the simplicity and the custom room makes it fancy to me. It’s worth the money

Cons
There really isn’t much to dislike with Whereby. My only gross is that the limit of four people isn’t really ideal for people who work with big companies.

I thought it was better than it was

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.

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.
