Pros: The people at GoToMeeting have made putting a meeting together simple and easy. I have used their product since it came out on the market. There are Individual mode where the video is on one person and everyone else is watching or you can place it in a group mode where you can see the faces of others in the meeting. No need to take notes GoToMeeting will record your meeting and transcribe it for you, then if you have items that were shown in a prsentation to them you can go back and make links they can go to. Meetings can be only one person speaking or it can be interactive with the presenter controlling who speaks when. The people at GoToMeeting are always one step ahead and the communication market evolves. You can watch, listen and speak through your computer or you can still call into an 800 number. I can't say enough about how easy it is to use the software, it only took me about an hour to review the features and felt comfortable that I could operate the software. They are a;ways coming up with new features.

Cons: Cons? What cons? I have to say I know nothing that would be a limiting factor except maybe the number of people you can view, but how many people can you really view on one screen. No honestly I would reccomend this to a business of two people that are in different locations to communicate back and forth as it records your meeting and transcribes it. So, no I have no con's

Overall: Being able to communicate with other people in my company and the ability to have it recorded, with being able to go back and see who said what and who was suppose to do what. Just the time of not needing to take notes is wonderful. Now I just print them out and highlight the important stuff. GoToMeetings has made my business look larger than it is when I speak with very large companies. When I set up a GoToMeeting with them they are very impressed. It also gives me the opportunity to demonstrate our products. It's so much better than having them go to YouTube to watch a video. At GoToMeeting I demonstrate and then they can ask questions there "real time." If they want me to change a parameter, I can do that, right then, "real time." So my experience over all is wonderful.

Pros: This software is extremely helpful when you are working with a team that is either located in different states domestically or different countries internationally. It is an online platform and browser based so pretty much very very easy to get started. Just setup a account, open browser, go to their website and log in. The software has made useful features but the ones that I have used and like the most are,

- Setup Recurring meetings (so I don't have to go back and do it over and over again)

- Switch between presenters (you can give authority to other participants and let them share their screen)

- Give authority for keyboard and mouse (they can control your screen from their end which at times has been life saver for me)

- Very easy to user user interface (All options are right there on the goto window and it can be either maximized or minimized)

- Says who is speaking (When you hear a voice you can see on the bottom of the screen who is speaking at the moment)

- Can have lot of participants ( I scratch the surface for number of attendees I can have during the meeting.)

- Webcam option (Yes you can choose to enable disable webcam so others can see you)

- Chat option (if you can't hear someone type a message on chat and see if they respond back)

- Record (I haven't used this feature but i bet it would come handy when you do a massive presentation and not everyone can attend but you want them to see what they missed)

I think it should satisfy most people and companies needs

Cons: I have had many issues with this software. Some few times I have ran into these situations

- I cannot hear the other person though I see them online

- If I start meeting before the scheduled time it acts weird

Overall: I use this software almost on a daily basis to communicate with team members that are not situated in the same geographical location. It is the company wide go to software for all and it does make connecting with virtual teams much simpler. I think there is something for everyone in this software and it will only get better with time.

Pros: Being able to quickly and easily show my online students what I am doing, by sharing my entire screen/desktop, on my computer is so important! SHARING MY ENTIRE SCREEN regardless of which program I am using, or switching to, and to also have them see the pop-up or embedded windows (like scroll over Alt tags or edit menus & windows) is a must! Another program (that I will not name) recently changed that specific feature so if the moderator shares the entire screen an infinite trail of windows appears and no one can see a thing. I'll choose go to meeting every time if I have the choice between the two! Don't get me wrong - GTM does allow you to also share only one specific application/program at a time IF that is what you would prefer to do. I just need/prefer to share my entire screen.

Cons: Honestly, the only thing I can think of is I wish GTM would allow the attendees to "raise their hands" to let me know they have questions, or that I have missed a text/typed question. Either that or just give them an icon that can be clicked on that rings a bells in my ear so that I know to pause and/or ask the viewers to type their question again. I can understand that some moderators might not want to allow such interruptions during a presentation, or during a specific time, but giving the moderator an ON/OFF option for it would work for everyone! The little icon/button could be placed right next to the MIC controls on the Attendees pane.

Overall: I love GoToMeeting (GTM)! I teach online and hold live chats sometimes 3 nights a week. I have to sometimes use another program, and at times when it doesn't work I have quickly jusmped on GTM and it 'saves the day" every time! I love the new TRANSCRIPTION feature too! And so do my students. Granted it isn't perfect, but what speech-to-text feature is? I make sure to use GTM and introduce it to my students at least once per course. The following week I will switch back to the other program, and then I let my students vote on which program they'd prefer to use the following week - GTM wins every time! I have used other online VOI chat tools, but they seem to keep changing?! They "think" they're making improvements, but take away such a valuable feature as being able to share the moderator's entire screen?! Why?! Either that or their newer version cannot "handle" sharing the entire screen and errors out showing the same screen over and over again in a trail of overlapping screens that run off into infinity. GTM is just easier to use! Inviting attendees is even easy - just set up a future meeting and the email invitation is created for you! Easy peasy! I just took a another look at it again and played around with resizing and moving the feature windows and I even found something else about it that I didn't know before...so now I love it even more!

Pros: This is very well designed software for remote meetings with audio, video, and screen sharing. I also love the companion product GoToWebinar that I've used for many webinars over the last several years. GoToMeeting has gained such good adoption that it has integrations everywhere with tools like Google Calendar, Chrome, Zapier, and others. We used GoToMeeting for years for internal meetings, sales calls--basically any meeting with remote participants. I've even used it to pull church members into my Sunday School class on weekends that are homebound because of illness. I like how you can create a persistent link that you can go to every time rather than having to set up a new link for every meeting. Just be careful if you're having back to back meetings with the same link--otherwise, you get the next audience showing up at the tail end of the current meeting. I solved that by creating two persistent links and alternating them when I have back to back meetings.

Price is right. When purchasing multiple licenses you can get the price down.

It's also very stable in almost every environment including mobile meetings so you can participate in meetings on the go. It requires a simple install that I've never had anyone have a problem with.

Cons: It takes more bandwidth than competitors like Zoom.us for similar functionality. Chat is limited to chatting within the meeting rather than creating chat rooms inside your company for teams to collaborate on then hop on a remote meeting. It's meant to be used every time you want to meet rather than an ongoing collaboration tool all of the time. I think they could learn something from Zoom about this.

Pros: GoToMeeting is a staple service at my organization. We used Google Hangouts for simple video and screen sharing sessions, but GoToMeeting presents a more full-featured and polished product. This is essential for things like Board or executive level meetings where interactive white boards and the ability to shift who the presenter is are essential. GoToMeeting has native apps for Mac, PC, Android, and iOS. This is crucial for BYOD organizations or organizations that rely on volunteers. Features like whiteboard make it very easy to share and visualize ideas as they evolve. Having the ability to change who the presenter is and giving that person "remote control" of the meeting is also hassle free.

Cons: The look and feel of the service is not the same across all platforms. This makes it difficult to explain functionality to users when starting a meeting or if you need to give instructions on the fly. If you are on a Mac and the other person is on a PC and you are trying to remember how to hand off controls and can't remember how on the other platform, this is a real impediment to getting things done.

Overall: We love GoToMeeting because it's mostly simple and straightforward. Support for the product is great. Every issue we had was answered within minutes of our call. The pricing is adequate considering how many participants you can have on each meeting. Overall, I recommend GoToMeeting as gold standard right up there with WebEx and JoinMe. GoToMeeting is in my opinion more reliable and has easier setup.

Pros: Being one of the biggest names in collaboration software, GoToMeeting's biggest advantage is that so many people are familiar with it, you don't have to worry much about encountering someone that doesn't know how to join or call into a meeting. There are some great features they have in the product that don't exist in any other platform, like sharing your entire mobile device's screen with a meeting in order to demonstrate a mobile app. On the off-chance you have a meeting with someone who has never used GoToMeeting before, the set up is simple and can usually be done in an unobtrusive way that doesn't run afoul with IT groups.

Cons: I don't like the pricing model. It's an extremely robust product, but more often I find myself leveraging similar, albeit much more simple, functionality built into other tools to get much of the same result for internal meetings. For example, if I need to call a snap meeting with my team, rather than ask everyone to join my GoToMeeting, I simply start a call within our (paid) Slack channel and we don't need to worry about tying up the account for anyone else who might need to use it. For setting up a conference line, there are other more affordable solutions (sometimes free ones if you don't mind stability issues) on the marker which can accomplish this goal.

Overall: The business problem we solve with GoToMeeting is simple: we needed a solution that any of our external clients can easily access and join meetings with our teams from any device they might have. We wanted a solution which gives us and our clients a familiar feature set along with easy to use controls so we don't need to worry about spending parts of meetings waiting for people to install complex software just to join a simple meeting.

Great tool to having meetings with people all over the world anytime.

Pros: It is very easy to schedule meetings, alert participants and add meetings to your calendar. Once meetings are started, there is a useful tool that helps you make sure your audio and video connections are working properly. It is great that there is an option for using computer audio or calling in over the phone. Almost everyone in the business world if familiar with using this software and it seems to have compatibility across the board with all the computers I've used. The ability to allow any participant to become the presenter and share their screen is extremely valuable.

Cons: Sometimes, even with the audio/video tool, I've run into issues that take a while to figure out. There might be a setting to turn it off but when you have back to back meetings, one meeting could be interrupted with a loud alert for the next one. Obviously, as an internet based tool, it is only as good as your connection so audio and video quality could suffer significantly with slower connections.

Overall: I use GoToMeeting on a regular basis to have meetings with coworkers and colleagues and it is mostly flawless for those purposes. Meetings sometimes get delayed due to someone having an audio or other connection issue but not often enough for it to be a big problem. One of the most valuable uses is for remote presentations. We hold conferences and judging events where the presenter is unable to be there in person so using GoToMeeting, they are able to present their PowerPoints and interact with the audience in real time almost as seamlessly as if they were there. My biggest recommendation is to always test important meetings and presentations where time and presentation are important factors with the actual connections and computers that will be used at the time of the actual meeting.

In my previous customer service role, I conducted daily webinars with small groups via GoToMeeting.

Pros: I appreciated the ease in which I could schedule a GoToMeeting and provide attendees with the link to attend. I was able to easily access that link again if I needed to remind participants of how to access the meeting. During the implementation of the meeting, participants receive an intro tutorial on how to setup their audio, etc. As I was aware of the information they were receiving, I would often type in the chat box and reiterate verbally what they would need to do to access their own speaker and more. It is valuable to be able to record the session via GoToMeeting and send that file to participants as a follow-up.

Cons: It is good to be mindful that your computer's updates can conflict with GoToMeeting's function. When my computer conducted certain updates, the volume on GoToMeeting would work for a minute or two during the beginning of the session and then it would stop working. So, if you incur an issue with GoToMeeting, keep in mind it could be something external to the actual software. It also takes a sequence of steps to be able to show attendees a recording during your session--the audio settings must be changed to allow for audio to be heard from the recording rather from your microphone.

Pros: 1. A simple sign feature & sync with your calendar

2. Once you are signed in, share the code with the link or share the number including meeting code.

3. No hassle to join in if you have an invitation even no need to register. PC or Phone whatever you can join

4. If Internet speed is good than very clear voice and even HD service.

5. Due to easy to connect without register, employees love this platform

Cons: 1. Sometimes, I found at least 2/3 times its logging into account due to an unknown error

2. One I call the customer support their solution is not working sometimes. Means it has some bugs

3. UberConference, Google meet, and other available online apps have the easy feature which is similar to Goto Meeting. Like customization for own company.

Overall: My CEO and other HOD's always prefer to use Goto meeting to make the external meeting due to easy connect feature and external participant doesn't need to register. Also, all interview candidate, one to one external meetings are pretty flexible via Goto meeting. But for group meeting like internal including customize feature is not availale to this platform. Overall it has a significant value till now to my company to particular type of conference. I do personally use especially when I need to connect remote people where internet connection is very poor and the y can join via dialing .

Pros: What I like best is that on the Gotomeeting dashboard I can see exactly what the other people see, so I know if my screen is not refreshing or if, when I use two screens, I'm accidently sharing the wrong screen.

I like that Gotomeeting can be viewed on a cell phone. This allows some of my viewers to watch the training or join a meeting from their phone rather than having to be tied to a computer or tablet.

I think the feature that allows me to make someone else a presenter while our meeting is going is super important because this means if there is a concept a participant doesn't understand or thinks is not working correctly on their end I can immediately make them a presenter and see their computer screen. This allows me to correct their actions, because I can see exactly what is happening on their end.

Cons: I dislike that Gotomeeting looks differently on Explorer than it does on Chrome. But it does work on both.

Overall: I am solving the business problem of training remote users without having to be in the same room. Gotomeeting allows me to do this very well. And, as I mentioned, it allows me to see their screen and/or their video camera while we are on the Gotomeeting. This allows for immediate problem solving and clarification of issues.

Pros: GoTo Meeting is an online platform which provides the facility of virtual meeting with your offshore team, client and vendors. It is an extremely beneficial and easy to use tool for communication. I have been using this tool for almost 2.5 years now to communicate with my vendors and clients. It creates a seamless platform for presentation to the team who is situated offshore.

There is no limit to the number of participants and you have the ability to switch between the presenters anytime. You can move the control tab (with option to present, mute and webcam) to the left or right side of your screen, basically as per your convenience. It highlights the icon of the person who is speaking while presenting. It also provide an option to chat and write any important query in the middle of the meeting.

It also lets you record your meetings

Cons: Being a virtual conference/meeting software, it's imperative that the audio and video option is fluent. Sometimes, there are audio issues when the number of presenters are more. The customer support team is little slow and sometimes the person on the other end is not aware of the issues and results in delay in response to a query. There are other options available in the market which are comparatively easy to use.

You have to be really verse with the software in order to use to efficiently. Someone who is not tech savvy would find it little difficult to operate.

Overall: The overall experience has been fine so far but they can improve on certain things to make it better as there are other competitors in the market.

Pros: GoToMeeting is a great program in a professional setting for a number of reasons. For starters, video conferences are easy to create and organize with shareable links that can be added to calendars (with reminders) at the click of a button. Then factor in that GoToMeeting is accessible with PCs, tablets and smartphones, and it makes organizing meetings so easy that it becomes a go-to program. Finally, creating and delivering presentations with the program is so easy and good that I end up inventing reasons to use the program for every meeting- and turning as many meetings as I can into video conferences.

Cons: Aside for the occasional lapses in audio quality, lag times and glitches, the chat function is not as easy to use as it should be. Meetings also can't be recorded (at least not with the most recent free version). And it is expensive.

Overall: It's reliable, it allows me to share any type of file, and the device works with any type of web browser (on any device). GoToMeeting not only simplified video conferencing, it enhanced it. This was particularly true for presentations, which were often clunky because I would need to email the powerpoint file separately from the video conference call- so this centralized the whole process as a one-stop shop.

Pros: GoToMeeting is very essential in my organisation. We use it every week when we talk to our facilitators for a training program. I love the fact that I can show others my screen as I present a training or explain what I am trying to show others to understand.

It can also accommodate so many of people at the same time while I present. I do not have to go to a far location to be in a meeting. Whenever an urgent meeting is needed, GoToMeeting is very handy and we all get the details in full.

It also has a place where you can mute while the presenter is talking and a place where you can type questions without interfering with the speaker as he/she is still talking.

It saves time, money and stress getting everybody to be in a location for a meeting or a seminar.

Cons: It takes some time to join in the meeting. When the link is sent, it takes a while before it logs you in.

Also most time I get to type in when not able to hear what the presenter is saying.

I think there should be a way to mute people as an admin without the person releasing himself/herself unless the admin does that. It makes the mute button useless.

Without the internet, it is not accessible.

Overall: Well, if you want to talk to your all your staff and they are not in a location, GoToMeeting is a way to connect to all of them at the same time. This saves energy, time and cost less. You can connect to your friends and colleagues all at the same time and do a meeting without physically being in same place. I really enjoy this experience using it. It is super cool.

Pros: I love GoToMeeting. It's easy to understand and you can get the hang of it on your first go. The whole system is self explanatory and you don't need to go through a manual to learn how to use the basics. It can generate a new link for every conference call that you schedule so that no two meetings collide - imagine your 3:00 pm getting into the conference call 10 minutes early only to then walk in on your 2:00 pm meeting that hasn't finished yet.

The video quality is good and it doesn't lag your computer and you can easily record the whole meeting to take notes afterwards.

Cons: There's really not a negative thing I would say about GoToMeeting. The only issue I would have is the bill. My team and I use this for business meetings so paying the yearly plan is no problem with us since it helps us gain money. But if you need something free and don't mind not having quality features then this is not for you as they only give you a free 14 day trial and then you'll have to pay to continue with it. I wouldn't use this if I ran a non-profit organization.

Overall: GoToMeeting has helped my team and I connect with clients and leads in all stages without having to leave our office space. The ease of use gives us the opportunity to have back to back meetings since all you have to do is click on "start" and in a second you are at your next meeting.

Pros: GTM has improved our inter-office communication vastly. Having a team spread across 4 states and 2 countries it is imperative that we have a reliable meeting tool. We liked it so much that we began using it with our SaaS subscribers for support and sales, as well. The interface is easy enough to use and for less tech savy users, we can register them for meetings and send them a single link to click that will automatically downlaod the meeting agent and allow them to initiate a call. We especially like being able to share screen/mouse control to help work through any support issues.

Cons: There is no ability to lock individual meetings. If we are scheduled back to back, and we are not using one of our unique meetings (which sometimes has to be the case) then there is a risk that someone hops into the meeting early and interferes with our current call. Also, the tool is slightly expensive for what you get.

Overall: The support team has been great and it has helped us realize our meeting potential. Overall GTM is a great asset to our company and we do not plan to explore other options. Call quality is reliable and that is the most important thing we can ask for.

Pros: I've been using GoToMeeting for at least a decade and it is still the gold standard for web conferencing for companies of all sizes. Our entire organization (sales, marketing, success, and support) all have licenses for scheduling screen shares and web conferences with leads and customers. You can share your screen, allow another person to share their screen, and even take control of another user's screen for troubleshooting issues, or training purposes. It is easy to use for those setting up and those connecting to a web conference. It has a number of wonderful integrations - the most useful being the Google Calendar plug in - which enables you to easily schedule GoToMeetings directly from a calendar event. You can also record sessions for replay later (helpful for training or demos).

Cons: It would be great if their recordings of screenshares were more compressed so that longer presentations weren't so large or the ability to integrate with a cloud based storage site to allow default a recording to go directly to an online location for sharing and playback.

Pros: There are so many options for video conferencing and lots of them are the same. But personally I like G2M the best because its happened to be the most robust and seems to offer the best quality of video and audio.

Lots of other conferencing software is the same but they will crash, have longer delays in video / audio, have super long confirmation codes etc.

I also really like that I can have a vanity URL (with a paid account) that I can always use to fire up a meeting at anytime (i.e. http://gotomeet.me/. This is super nice for just firing up ad-hoc meetings or the like.

Recording sessions is easy and I love that they have the ability to "lock" a given session which prevents unwanted access from people when you have back to back meetings with different groups using the same dial-in information.

Cons: After you record a session the video has to get translated to the right format. this can take a long time depending on your hardware, length of the meeting, etc. To be fair this is the case with most conference software options. But just something to note.

Also, the mobile apps are good for using G2M on the go or sharing your mobile screen but they are a little clunky. Particularly if you use your actual phone to dial in but then use the mobile app for screen sharing. On an iPhone you'd have to constantly switch back and forth between the apps to mute and unmute.

Pros: GoToMeeting is a very good software to use for conference meetings and one on one meetings. GoToMeeting UI is seamless, easy to use software with quick connection to a meeting right away. Also it integrates with outlook and other email apps, so getting on a call right away has never been an issue. Moreover, when connecting to GoToMeeting its easy to connect without any issues, just requires a download of the extension in the browser. GoToMeeting price is reasonable i do not pay for it, my company does , but if you your own business then purchasing GoToMeeting is inexpensive. Moreover, GoToMeeting voice quality is very clear, i like how i can test my speakers and mic right before the call so there is not issues during the call.

Cons: I think if GoToMeeting would have updates go out very now and them it would be good; since there are rarely any updates to the software.

Overall: GoToMeeting has been very beneficial to use for me, since i used all the time to get on client meetings, GoToMeeting is very fact, reliable, and east to connect to a quick GoToMeeting invite via a meeting ID. GoToMeeting is secure when connecting to a call so there is not snooping or outsiders getting connect to. GoToMeeting is going to the right direction and many ppl are using, i see adds on television all the time.

Pros: I like that it is fast. The videos of the people who participate in the meeting are good. It has many functions and is very complete for meetings with many people. If you are a presenter, it is possible to control the audio and the control of the participants, which makes the meeting easier to carry. I have seen that I can connect external microphones and external audios and the program connects them without problem. I can share a PowerPoint presentation and also a specific window. I like that I can use it on iOS and it works very well.

Cons: It is a complicated program to use for meetings with people who had not used it before. I noticed that when I use my Windows computer and the meeting there are Mac computers, the software is different, this creates confusion when we should give some assistance to someone who does not know it. The screen sharing controls are confusing. Audio and microphone are also confusing. The chat, I think it should improve. They should consider including a "blackboard" in the paid version. The program usually does not work the first time, but the last software downloads and this can be annoying when you need to join a meeting quickly. I have noticed that there is an error in the time zone, even though I put it correctly the system chooses another, it is confusing.

Overall: It is a program that has allowed me to share information and make work meetings in an effective way. It has saved mobilization costs for our staff.

Pros: As an online conference tool that is easy to use and simple to get started, this is a solid product. I have used it off an on for many years without issue. It has always been much more affordable than some of its counterparts, but is still a very powerful tool with lots of features. It is sold in tiers so you can get the features you want at a very good price. Of course, do your research and make sure all features necessary to your business needs are met!

Cons: It doesn't have as many features or bells and whistles as the most used, highest priced offerings or most popular products it this category. However, the top dog tends to bundle everything so you get more, but gotomeeting breaks it down to you can get what you need, easing the pocket drain, or paying for unnecessary features and functions. There have been complaints of audio/video dropout, but I believe Cisco has addressed all of these. Some, of course, have nothing to do with the application, and everything to do with the connecting system (wi-fi, poor internet, etc)

Overall: I've had good experience using this for conferencing and remote control of other systems. I have used it for online meetings several times, and it is very easy to get people online and using the site. I have done screen sharing, and remote access to other computers when necessary, which is awesome for helping remote users with issues.

There are several good offerings in this space, so do your homework and get what you need for your business.

I would recommend this product if it has the features you require.

Vendor Response

by GoToMeeting on September 08, 2017

Hi Babak,

Thanks for the review. RE: Audio Issues - you might consider offering both a VOIP option and dial-in options in your meetings (we even have toll-free phone numbers you can offer prospective clients); we are our own "phone company" (CLEC) and should have very reliable options for you both in US and Internationally.

As for connecting and having clients download - you can setup your GTM to allow users to connect via the "no-download option" - just need to log into your account online and select that option. Here's an article to review as well: https://support.logmeininc.com/supportvideos/gotomeeting/videos--key-features--gotomeeting-web-app

And of course I would make sure to setup your personal meeting room, so people can just click on your custom link to quickly join the meeting.

Thank you for being a loyal GTM customer, we are always seeking to make your experience with our products the best it can be!

Will V. and the entire GoToMeeting Team.

Pros: We used GoToMeeting for several years and it did a great job. There was never a real issue that we had with product. So I'd have to say the consistency was the best feature of the product. It just worked and that is more than you can say about a number of products out there.

Cons: As time went on, it seems like GoToMeeting fell out of favor with other businesses and it lost it's 'hipness'. That is to say that it basically became less popular, with many companies (ours included) switching over to Zoom. From what I understand, the reason that we switched was a cost savings / feature set upgrade decision. So what we liked least was the cost for the feature set we were receiving. Plus Zoom resonates with our clients, whereas GoToMeeting feels dated at times. GoToMeeting also didn't include cloud recordings of calls, which was a huge need for us.

Overall: We are a SaaS company and we provide all of our customer training and implementation via remote screen-share. GoToMeeting was our software of choice for the better part of 4 years as we worked with our customers. It did what we needed it to do, and it did it well.

Pros: - Ease of use for organizers and participants

- No problems with firewalls, internally or externally

- All the essential functionalities that we use every time

- Additional functionalities that we use occasionally

- Recent updates are a plus

- Good recording features

Cons: - I wish it was still a combined package with GoToMeeting

- More expensive than we would like but overall worth the money.

Overall: As a state agency, we use GoToWebinar frequently to communicate important information and training to our state's counties (105) and numerous other organizations. In the 3 years that I have been using the software we have not run into firewall or connectivity issues with any partners, which is more than I can say about other outward-facing software we employ.

Organizers find setting up a webinar simple and intuitive and users have no problem registering. The email reminders and ability to add the date to your calendar are vital features that GoToWebinar easily addresses.

Other features like recording, rosters (with attention ratings), and in-webinar surveys are just some of the features that we couldn't do without after using them. There have been recent updates to the software that I haven't had time to dabble in but they look like nice additions to an already good platform.

It is not uncommon for us to get requests from partner organizations asking us to host a webinar for them using GoToWebinar even if they have their own webinar software that isn't GoToWebinar.

Other platforms that we have tried (Skype, Adobe Connect, etc.) weren't as intuitive and encountered a number of issues that we don't see using GoToWebinar.

Pros: The venerable GotoMeeting has been around for a while and it's a feature rich tool that should work for just about anyone looking to do online collaboration.

Teams can setup single or recurring meetings

Setting up a meeting automatically opens up an outlook meeting invite

Ability to add international dial-in numbers for many countries

Good markup tools

Create and manage meetings through web interface and desktop app.

Cons: When double-clicking on the task bar icon, it should not launch a new meeting. This can be very annoying where offices are sharing a few accounts between many people.

Meeting scheduler does not do a good job of managing time. A user can not start a meeting at the same time another is scheduled but can start a meeting five minutes before and let the time overlap the second meeting. Recurring meetings also do not block out the meeting time to prevent another user for scheduling a meeting at the same time.

Pros: I like how GoToMeeting integrates seamlessly with my Gmail account so I can easily add meeting credentials to any calendar invite I send out. I also like how the platforms allows you to record any meeting and pause the screen throughout, especially if you are giving a product demo. Lastly, it's very quick to load and I haven't had virtually any tech issues with is in the 3 years I've used it!

Cons: I don't like how it doesn't let you schedule meetings in the past via the calendar integration. For instance if you have a 9 o'clock meeting and you ended up sending the invite out with the meeting details at 9:01am, it wouldn't let you. You'd then have to update the invite on your calendar to 9:02am or beyond which can be confusing for the person you are meeting with.

Overall: Overall, very reliable and simple to use. It's multi-faceted and allows for small-scale meetings and large scale webinars so any sort of online meetings can easily be facilitated through the platform!

Pros: GoToMeeting is pretty easy to use and has many of the same features as Webex. We used it for several years because Webex was too pricey for the number of licenses needed. GoToMeeting also had a voice-only bridge option that was distributed to the majority of users. This was good as an impromptu conference ability since you could send the dedicated phone number and access number out in seconds.

Cons: Honestly there were not that many issues with it. Occasionally there were graphical errors with screen sharing, but that may have been more to do with the user's laptop resolution than the software itself. There was manual setup of international dial-in numbers required by our IT team when requested.

Overall: Overall GoToMeeting did what was needed and provided good call clarify as long as there was enough bandwidth to handle it. Occasionally there were some call issues, but those usually were not show stoppers. This is a good alternative to Webex if you need a more affordable option.

Pros: The app is very stable, I can't even remember having an issue with the app. You can also connect through your phone and it works perfectly. The option to record the meeting is great for presentations or trainings, and then you can send it to your customers or publish them on youtube. The drawing and sharing screen options are awesome too, very useful for help desk departments.

Cons: It was not so easy for my customers/first time users to login, but once they started using it, they knew how to work with the app very quickly. So when you open the app for the first time, you have to choose the options to start working, but if you can't talk to this person or they can't hear you, how can you send them the instructions? This is why I did not give this app all the 5 stars.

Not a fan of the toll-free option.

Overall: I worked from home for 5 years and I used GoToMeeting everyday to connect and have meetings with colleagues and clients.

Pros: GoToMeeting comes with Fantastic user Interface, simple to create meetings. Each meeting can have a custom URL to access the virtual meeting. One can try the service for free without providing the payment details. Further, GoToMeeting offers 60 day refund if you are not satisfied with their service. This shows their confidence in their product.

Using this service one can do share sharing, demos, remote trouble shooting, video conferencing etc. We also used their sister service GoToWebinar extensively for webinars and our product demonstrations as a part of our sales push. Both the products worked out well for us.

They also offer GoToTraining. All these three are different products.

Once you click on "Schedule a Meeting," you see a window that asks you to enter the name of the meeting, its frequency, date, time, and duration. Meeting participants have the option to connect using Voice over IP.

GoToMeeting comes Microsoft outlook and google calendar plugin. GoToMeeting is compatible with all major browsers in the market.

Cons: GoToMeeting does not track the attendees, it leaves it to your calendar software to do that job.

GoToMeeting does not have advanced features like raising a hand or polling

Pros: We've been using GoToMeeting for about 2 years. The tool is really simple to use. Features are really good for what we use it for. It's flexible and very user-friendly. Hosting is very easy. We have multiple locations and having this tool allows us to be more productive. We're able to shared data to make our meetings productive.

Cons: GoToMeeting is not as feature rich as other tools we've used. Our department used an old software tool that was developed in-house. The tool was replaced since there's no budget to get the tool updating. It became too cumbersome and it made sense to use another tool. No other real negative feedback as the tool service our purpose well.

Overall: Overall experience is very good. We would recommend to use it for medium to large size collaboration projects. It has the free version and you can get additional features as you need it. For us it serves as well and we will continue to use it. No real issues found. The tool is good.

Pros: I have used Go To Meeting for more than 5 years (probably from early 2010) and still like this solution. As a business analyst and solution consultant, I have used Go To Meeting for product demonstrations, product walk-through, and also for rapid prototype reviews and found Go To Meeting as a tool which you can rely on. The quality of screen sharing and audio conferencing is a big plus. Loved the features- raise your hand, mute/unmute participants for Q&A sessions The stability is pretty good. I have conducted online meetings with 25 participants without any major issue. The scheduling is simple and seamless. Compatibility across platforms and devices is another notable merit. For small, medium and large teams, Go To Meeting can be helping hand as far as online meetings and conferencing are concerned. Recommend to go for a trial first and then choose the right plan.

Cons: Downloading Go To Meeting, every time is a pain. Sometimes while trying to schedule an immediate meeting, it will prompt for a new version, then download etc. There is definite scope for improvement in user interface. Occasionally experienced trouble over low bandwidth and some hassles over firewalls.

Pros: Besides covering all the basic functionalities of video meetings, one of the most surprising features is recording the meetings and then it will generates a transcription of it which is perfect when the meetings are long and cover lots of topics. The transcription/video can be shared easily from a gotoMeeting link (nothing public like popular video streaming services).

Besides that, other nice stuff I found is pointer/highlighter for screen sharing, excelent phone/pc audio options which means you can call and get access to the meeting even if you don't have access to a pc.

Cons: If the internet connection is really slow, the frames per second will go down so anything like scrolling a website or moving the mouse will be seen like 5 FPS, without warning who is having the internet issues--the sender or the receiver. It also doesn't have something like feedback detection/warning which would be REALLY useful for people that is not used to this kind of software.

Overall: Go to meeting has been ideal for our company, having people in different places around the world. Setting up a meeting is relatively easy--pretty much like creating an event in a calendar. The phone service is available in many countries and works perfectly.

Pros: We use log me in at my company because we need out team of people with override capability to be able to remote in and help stores with overrides, our ops and IT teams to be able to remote in and troubleshoot or fix things. It works well for the most part.

Cons: I think what I dont like about log me in can probably be addressed with other go to meeting products but my biggest complaint about log me in is that it doesn't allow more than one person to be logged in at a time but it also doesn't tell you if someone else is already on that computer helping. So we are forced to reply to the email request for help that we are getting on AND again when it's done rather than just confirming it's been taken care of. The only other con I have is that it does not allow for chat on the mobile app and it doesn't allow the computer being logged into to start a chat, only the person removing in can.

Overall: Overall the log me in program has been good to work with. It took some getting used to after we had been using join me for a long time, but now that we understand it better it's nice.

Pros: In my team, we are located in different offices and our clients are spread all over Europe. This tools has make our life easier as it allow us to be in touch in with other team members and clients in daily basis without having to move/travel without scarifying the flow of the interaction (video and voice is not laggy at all).

The program is very simple: it shows you the meeting participants, options for your microphone, audio and video but it allows you useful options as to see who is is talking or to share your screen, which is extremely useful so all participants would be on the same page (you can have many participants which is a plus) or do a training session (that you can record!). It also allow you to set up recurrent meetings

My favorite option so far, is the possibility to give control of your screen (mouse or keyboard) to an other team member which is great to solve small technical issues or live corrections of a project.

Cons: I have experiences an small bug sometimes: if you close the window of the program and then reopen it after a few minutes, it shows as your user is on the same meeting two times and the meeting ends.

Overall: GoToMeeting have help us reduce the expenses in our trainings as allow us to reduce costs on calls with team members in other locations and also to do small training or present products without having to travel to another location.

Pros: Goto Meeting is a fairly intuitive tool for Online meeting and video conferencing that enable project members to collaborate with customers via internet in real time. The first key advantage is that you can afford to conduct a meeting and connect with all remote participants all over the world. Setup is quick and easy, it helps you to share and record audio and video presentations. The recording feature is particularly useful if you want to share your presentations to another audience after the meeting is over. Passing controls is fairly easy. You don't need a tutorial or guidance to master this wonderful tool.

Cons: One thing I noticed is that the dial in numbers are very busy. You might start on and be actually late for the meeting. Depends on internet connection heavily, there might be a lag on the screens you share and the voice coming over to the audience. Also, I noticed that the features in this tool keep changing. This could annoy the user, though it seems cool. Monitoring online training sessions , there is a risk of not able to capture attendance for attendees logging in using dial in feature.

Overall: Fairly simple, easy to pass control and intuitive tool for Online and Video conferencing.

Pros: GoToMeeting is a simple software with built-in capabilities of web and video conferencing at the touch of a button. I consider it to be simple yet powerful when it comes to functionality. It is easy to join a meeting, which can be either using a toll-free number for your country or clicking on the tailor-made link or URL to the meeting. It is as simple as that! I am able to access meetings through my laptop, smartphone and tablet.

The video quality is better than competitive software in the market, and it is possible to share your screen for better team coordination, for example. I also recommend the customer support offered, with several levels of support available: live training, chat and online videos.

Cons: So far I have no major issues with GoToMeeting, as I am able to attend virtual meetings, coordinate with my virtual teams for all procurement purposes seamlessly. One aspect that could be improved is pricing can be made more competitive as compared to similar video conferencing software.

Overall: So far GoToMeeting has been meeting our video conferencing and web meeting needs, with participants able to join in from any part of the globe. This especially helps when we need to call our partners in several countries around the globe, following up on orders or for strategy meetings. Our team is able to align with other departments such as finance and logistics as well. The phone application really helps and one may just call the toll-free number to access the meeting audio and video. I believe it is worth the investment for large enterprises to invest in the Pro version and avail the added benefits.

Pros: I really enjoy the desktop plugin for GoToMeeting, it allows me to stay logged in, right click the icon in the icon tray, and schedule a meeting. Once I setup the meeting, it instantly opens a meeting request via outlook for me to email out to the parties involved. It's extremely quick and effective way to get a meeting setup quickly and helps me not procrastinate on getting meetings booked. It also has built in features to record meetings for later review, which is extremely helpful.

Cons: You can only have (1) meeting per account at a time, I'm unsure if this is just my companies plan with them, or if it's a limitation forever. But that can be difficult to deal with at times.

Overall: I really enjoy GoToMeeting, it fills it's role and does what we need it too. The feature set available and integrations makes it a great software tool for any company.

Pros: Love the Outlook integration, meeting recording, and screen sharing features. Including the GTM link in meeting invites works great for a wide variety of users. And for the price, has better audio / video quality than we've found elsewhere.

Cons: Hard to determine when it will happen, but sometimes audio will cut out, or clients will lose video. Likely a local Internet connection, but frustrating that it can't tell you that. Also, the new meeting recording in the cloud works pretty well EXCEPT for their transcriptions. It has a Botnik approach to AI. It doesn't know who is speaking, and gets about 80% of the words / context correct. Sometimes with hilarious outcomes, sometimes detrimental if you don't notice that the meaning was switched. Right now, their transcription is not trustworthy.

Overall: Often works great. Easy for clients (except Mac users)

Pros: We really enjoy the fact that webinars are so easy to set up. And the ability to create pre-recorded webinars is also fantastic because it gives us the opportunity to invite guests to host webinars that normally we wouldn't be able to provide due to time constraints, scheduling conflicts, etc.

Cons: One of the cons is that I wish it were easier to make pre-recorded webinars. It would be absolutely amazing to be able to just upload a recording and use that for a pre-recorded webinar rather than having to schedule and perform a webinar to record. Also (and I don't believe this is Go to Meeting's fault) but there are barely any third party marketing softwares that fully integrate with the pre-recorded capabilities. Bummer, but I'm sure they'll get to work on it soon!

Overall: We use GoToMeeting all the time internally and externally. We love it!

Pros: GoToMeeting is an incredibly easy tool for team collaboration. the most useful features are the desktop sharing including the group audio and chat features. This is very useful for remote presentation, experience sharing as well as trainings.

Another incredible function I really love to use on GoToMeeting is the fact that any participant can be made presenter and can share her/his screen with the rest of the team. This is really something any application development team or virtual team of any kind should consider when selecting a tool to facilitate team collaboration.

I will not close without mentioning that GoToMeeting is vry useful in scheduling a meeting in advance with the option of bookmarking it. No need for administrative rights on your computer as thanks to WebRTC protocol, the entire session can be followed without having to install any software on the end-user's computer.

Cons: To be honest, it is hard to find drawbacks to this application. In some few cases, we had participants attending at a location with low bandwidth availability. The user experiences some disconnection during the session. Improving the performance of the platform for limited bandwidth users could make this application a standard for many International organizations operating in third world countries.

Overall: We use GoToMeeting at least twice or three times monthly in meetings with our main contractors during which they present Key performance indicator records of our system as well as operational and maintenance plan of the system.

Pros: I use GoToMeeting three or more times a day for desktop support or training customers with Microsoft Dynamics NAV or related software. I am the secondary person in a support call, and need to have a tool that is quick, easy, and fully functional. Much more stable than TeamViewer, more functionality and scalable than Join.Me, and will not fail like Skype for Business. It is by far the best support / meeting tool I have used in my 30+ years of being a remote developer.

Cons: As long as you pay for the service, there are no cons. Only on rare circumstances has a customer not been able to run the web and/or desktop app, and that was more an issue with them, not GoToMeeting.

Overall: It is a one-stop shop for all my support and meeting needs for my job which largely consists of remote desktop support for customers or training medium sized groups.

Pros: I've used close to a dozen online meeting software tools. GoToMeeting is by far the best. My requirements are very simple: I need to be able to create, schedule and host online meetings. Sometimes, I share a screen or webcam. Sometimes I dial in vs use the online audio through the computer. GoToMeeting is the easiest to use and works. Other systems I've used can do most of what I require, but don't have the best quality.

Cons: Although this is the best system for online meetings on the market, it is also one of the more expensive options. I've learned, however, that you get what you pay for with tools like this. I would encourage folks who rely on an online meeting system to do their daily business to swallow hard and pay up for this tool.

Overall: Easy to use, reliable online meeting software.

Pros: The fact that GoToMeeting enables international firms with virtual teams to connect for their online meetings and web-conferencing requirements is the best feature one can ask for, especially if they are dealing with Clients and teams located across the globe. It is fairly simple to use and allows users to join online meetings and conference calls through their computers or other devices, including just dialling in the phone number designated to their country, which is toll-free, or through the app available. The voice quality is excellent and so is the screen-sharing feature that all parties can utlize for better collaboration and insight.

Cons: Sometimes the call does not go through from the link provided through my laptop, but I guess that's a system error on my end. Nevertheless, I am able to dial in through my phone immediately.

Overall: We have benefitted from using GoToMeeting and it is definitely more powerful, reliable and robust alternative than Skype for Business, which we switched from. This software is excellent in terms of our virtual collaboration and team management needs. For our company like ours, it has helped cut the costs of meeting room bookings, flying in consultants and experts, plus accommodation. And for a great affordable price on an annual basis.

For firms with an international presence and an eye on cost-control, I would recommend GoToMeeting in a heartbeat.

Screen sharing between the attendees is very simple and giving mouse and keyboard control is very easy.

It allows many number of people to attend the meeting and it also says who is actively speaking in the meeting.

we also have chats to communicate offline during meeting.

Cons: Sometimes voice is not clear and audible when the internet connectivity speed dropped.

Very rarely we face issue in starting the meeting and sharing the screen.

Pros: This is a great software and I like most that you can do audio, video and screen sharing. I used GoToMeeting at several jobs, and the most recent job I used it in was working as a sales manager, sharing my screen for my clients to see overviews of what their venue would look like and different design boards. I also like that you can add several users seamlessly and that they get an email sent with easy instructions on how to access the call. I also like the chatbox ability for them to type in a question while I'm presenting and I can get to it when I am done rather than interrupting my train of thought.

Cons: My only complaint with GoToMeeting is the connectivity issues that it has. I probably experienced connectivity issues 50% of the time while using it, but it is easily fixed by hanging up and calling back. It's just a pain and looks unprofessional when you have to tell your client or boss to hang up and try back. It would be a lot more seamless without the issues but it honestly isn't a huge problem to where I would stop using it. The pros outweigh this con.

Overall: I definitely recommend GoToMeeting when setting up calls with clients or even colleagues. It has benefited us by allowing a seamless way for attendees to access the call, they receive a small tutorial when setting up so we don't have to do it for them, and it has saved us time that we don't have to set up in-person meetings as we can do face to face with the ability to screen-share. Clients love it because they don't have to come down to my office and can do it from the comfort of their own home.

Pros: The best part of GoToMeeting was the ease of integrating Outlook and GoToMeeting so that my users could make their meetings more easy to manage from a centralized location. The fact that it also auto-populated also helped administrate what was going on behind the curtains. Cloud recording was also a nice touch, making it help save space on my users' machines.

Cons: The only issue I ran into was ease of changing licensing. For a growing organization such as ourselves, this may not be the easiest tool to grow on the go, but for established organizations without much turnover, this is made easier by their licensing model.

Overall: Overall, we achieved a great way to communicate internally, establish demos with prospective clients, and grow our relationships with our existing customers. All in all, a very solid tool!

Pros: GoToMeeting for desktop and mobile platforms is one of the most comprehensive and best implemented software conferencing systems. It offers full audio-video-desktop sharing functionalities and easy access via phone. Apart of the multiple features commonly present in any A/V conference system, the main strength of GoToMeeting is the stability of the connection itself, in any circumstances. The robust protocol allows to prioritize voice over video connection without losing a word in your conversation.

Cons: I've not detected weaknesses in GoToMeeting implementation both on desktop and mobile platforms. User experience in Mac platform (stand alone application) seems to be a little less integrated than Windows one. Functionalities are the same, but integration in Windows works flawlessly (ie: click on a GTM link opens the stand alone app in background, while on Mac you have to paste it manually on the main window).

Overall: We are using this software in our organization, mainly for interaction with external parties (customer / providers / consultants), but we also use internally when other platform are not performing as expected, due to more stable connection overall.
