An inevitable part of working from home, of course, is holding online meetings through various video-applications. To make this process easier for you, we are sharing with you the 5 best apps for online meetings.

1. Zoom

Zoom is one of the applications that is being used the most lately. In addition to holding meetings, Zoom allows you to organize various training and video-webinars. Among other things, although it’s a paid app, it still offers some free options such as meetings with up to 100 participants for 40 minutes and ‘Screen sharing’ which means sharing your screen with others, a very good feature, especially for training and various presentations. Zoom has 5 account creation plans from which you can choose: Zoom Free, Zoom Pro, Zoom Business, Zoom Enterprise, and Optional-Zoom Rooms.

Google Meet is a free communication platform that contains phone calls, videos, and messages for up to 10 users. It’s ideal for Google users as Google Meet is inserted into Gmail and other Google tools. One of the most unique features of Google Meet is that it allows users to stream their calls via live videos on YouTube.
