The distance encounters They have been a constant in our lives for months, forgive the redundancy, and most of us have had to try a wide variety of tools to carry them out because the diversity is enormous and none has become a de facto standard, although Zoom yes it is true that it has positioned itself quite well, with some controversy included.
Whereby is surely one of the most unknown and, at the same time, most interesting video calling services of all there are. Why? Basically because it plays two great tricks: it does not require installations or applications and it is free for personal use.
Whereby is committed to reducing everything to a link: it is based on the browser and to participate in video calls we do not need to install or download anything
Easy video meetings with Whereby
When using tools that not all participants have used at some point and they require installation, it is more than normal for there to be delays. Installing an application, however simple and fast it may be, always generates friction. That is why Whereby bets on reducing everything to a link. And, in addition, a link that is always the same (if we want).
Whereby bet on being browser-based and does not require either logins or guest registration. All we need is to create a link for our virtual room and that will be the access to it. Of course, the rooms are closed by default and those responsible for them are the ones who must authorize someone to connect.
Whereby is free for a limited personal use: we offer the possibility of having a room for up to four participants
This service includes, of course, the features that we all may need such as screen sharing, the ability to access meetings from mobile devices or chat, as well as other not so common. For example, reactions using live emojis, recording video calls or customizing meeting rooms with custom backgrounds and even logo. All this, their Norwegian creators promise, respecting privacy and complying, of course, the GDPR.
The big point in favor of Whereby is that it is free for personal use, offering us the possibility of having a room for up to four participants; perfect for remote meetings of a small group of friends. For the rest, it offers plans $ 9.99 per month in the case of private users and from $ 14.99 in the case of companies. In business plans, up to 50 users can share a room and the application allows you to manage bandwidth and screen space so that everything runs smoothly.
