Pros: It's exciting for our client to come into the 22nd century! Most our client's have never done this. But through Join.Me's virtual platform our client spend money and up without ever meeting anyone from our company face to face.

Cons: 1 - Your ad's.

I pay for your yearly service, not the free version.

I do not like when you advertise your services to my client as the meeting ends. It cheapens my company's importance to a client.

2 - Voice over computer.

This have always been an issue and continues to be. From Safari, Firefox, etc.

When my client tries to download app, the download goes onto their screen. They are on my screen and can't find download. (read to understand in "Overall").

3- Having to explain how to get rid of name bubbles and enlarge screen. You should have immediate that offers this function. Example, "would you like to display name bubbles, YES -or-NO". Would you like you screen enlarged, NO-or-YES". (if YES= option of 50%, 75%,100%)

Overall: 80% of our clients have never experenced this type of online interaction. We introduce a "baby-step" version for their first time with us through a entry portol email. If you want to see what they are seeing here's our company's website. "CandLDesigns.com". Scroll down just a little and click on movie. We pioneered this for the average Joe, and it's talked about constantly in reviews of us. (all 5-star). Thanks, and I hope to see these easly changed "Con's," soon.

Pros: I love being able to create webinars and allow my clients to take control of my screen or they can share their own. I am easily able to get through information by sharing my screen and data with them. It is one of the most convenient & easiest to use resources available to me to stay connected with my clients no matter where they are located.

Cons: 1. Audio issues - if a client wants to call in via their computer, the audio is normally very poor and often they must call in on the phone line instead, because the computer audio tends to have issues like reverberations/echo/feedback.

2. Audio issues - not all parties can hear everyone clearly. I can typically hear everyone just fine, but sometimes 2 callers will not be able to hear each other loud & clear.

3. Google Calendar - I often have to disable and re-enable it to have it show up in my calendar

Overall: Overall, it is a decent program for the investment level, but if the price goes up again this year, I will absolutely switch to another program. It has nearly doubled in price since I first started with them a few years ago. At this time, I would recommend it to other contractors and small businesses, based on current pricing, value for the dollar and ease of use.

Pros: - Excellent quality for screens (relies on Internet connection)

- Allows for presenters to be switched

- Meetings can be locked or open to the public easily

- Offers vanity URLS to simplify joining meetings

- Record online meetings

- In-line chat, control users in meetings (mute, kick-out etc)

- Allows meeting presenter to control other user's computers if they allow it

Cons: - Requires that the full software be installed prior to use if you are trying to control another user's computer (does not take long, but can be difficult for less technical users)

- If Internet is unsteady the software becomes unusable

Overall: I started using Join.me as a simple meeting system for working with remote staff. Quickly I fell in love with and started using it frequently in my daily meetings. I now use it to also train staff for using software and have even started using it to troubleshoot their computers remotely using the ability to control their mouse and keyboard once they have approved it.

The software and service are rock solid, although they do depend on Internet connections. That said, I have only had an issue once over years of using their system. I cannot recommend them enough to other users.

Pros: Join.Me is a video and audio conference calling platform that is very similar to its popular alternatives, such as GoToWebinar and Zoom.us. Unfortunately I don't have many great things to say about this product.

Cons: Our company decided to test out Join.Me because it was less expensive than many of the alternatives in the market. We were not satisfied for a number of reasons. While everything seemed to work great when we were enrolled in the free trial, once it was over it was a different story. We had a very poor connection when making calls (every time we used if for audio conferencing) and the video and screen sharing features would always freeze up (we experimented to make sure the connection wasn't on our side). We were never able to successfully use this product without having to logout and restart the meeting, which does not look too well when you are trying to demo or win business... For this reason, we had to purchase an additional license with GoToMeeting, and because we had to wait out until our subscription with Zoom ended at the end of the year we ended up paying a hefty price for conferencing. Customer service did not seem as interested in our needs, as they were often vague and not quick to respond when we were experiencing problems, especially once the free trial had ended. With all this being said, I would like to mention we bought our Zoom subscription in 2016-2017 so hopefully they have made great progress since then.

Join Me has been great for collaborating on our development projects with remote teams.

Pros: We love that we can pull together people from many locations and do design reviews and development demonstrations, as well as record the sessions for future use. Video recordings are generated quickly and easy to share. Audio and video quality are very good.

Cons: The login process can be complicated and take several attempts due to the captcha tech in place. Also, sometimes audio quality can have too many digital dropouts when too many people are on the call. This is rare, but it does happen. Guest users have to download the app before they can share their screens which can be a meeting disruption and complicated for that user.

Overall: The greatest benefit we get from this software is the feeling that our team is not separated by location. We can easily get everyone together and hear / see everyone on the project. Most of all, we can go back and reference old recordings when needed.

Pros: It's a great app that offers users a free version without many restrictions. Ease of use and quick connectivity between users. Sharing your screen is very easy and works well when presenting to large crowds either in front of them or remotely. It's very easy to schedule meetings. The quality on the phone app is amazing! It's seamless when taking control of another users machine to troubleshoot problems.

Cons: It can be a little pricey for a small business or a start up company. For less skilled users the interface can be hard to use at first. Video can be choppy when using your mobile device or if your internet connect isn't very fast. Some average computer users complain that it's a little difficult to join meetings for the first time.

Overall: It makes troubleshooting customers problems a whole lot easier than telling them what to do. With join.me I can have them share their screen with me and I can take over the mouse and fix the issue. It also makes group presentations easy and seamless with my service team.

Pros: I love the Join.Me application. I have used others in the past: Zoom, GoToMeeting, etc. I found Join.Me to the easiest to use from a manager/presenter stand point. I love that I can schedule meetings in the future from the site which will remind me on my phone. I also added the Join.Me extension in Google Chrome so it will interact with my GMAIL Calendar. The recording feature is a BIG time saver and has limited my liability with clients because everything is recorded. It has saved me several times.

Cons: I wish it had a way to transcribe the audio conversation like GoTo Meeting has. I have had some issues every so often with the audio being a little choppy

Overall: My team at my firm was using their own individual services to present and we have since switched to ALL use Join.me since it is so easy.

Pros: I've been using Join.Me for about 3 years now. It's a very effective way to share my desktop with clients when reviewing a design or trying to zero in on a visual solution.

Cons: I don't like that I can't see what the user sees when they first attempt to come to the meeting. I've had several people assume that the stock image Join.me uses are pictures of something relevant to me. For instance "Oh, is that your dog?" and I have no idea what they're seeing. Really, Join.me needs to loose the objective images and go to something abstract -- that or let ME choose what image gets displayed.

Overall: I use Join.me to share my desktop with client for the purposes of reviewing designs and illustrations. It's good for that. I don't use any of the voice functionality. I occasionally use the pointer and highlighter. I do find it frustrating when I need the user to share their desktop with me. I assumed that the process is easy to do but I don't have a way to see what they may be confused by. It would be nice if Join.me would provide me with some instructions with visuals that tell me what the user is seeing, that way I could perhaps help them through the steps. Otherwise, I'm blind and have had to give up on sharing in the past.

Pros: The basic functionality of a conference calling tool is available with this software. You can schedule calls in advance, connect to Outlook, record calls, pass presenter tools, etc. I find most of my meetings I schedule are very simple and only require basic scheduling & audio needs, so I don't have a need for any of the other features very often.

Cons: Personally, I am not bothered by the limited features of the software because I don't have a need for them. However, I do think the software isn't incredibly user-friendly, nor does it have a user interface that is easy to use and figure out. It makes you download an app in order to join calls but doesn't have a "redirect" feature if you've already downloaded the app; what this means is if you forget to join a meeting from your app and try to join it from the website instead, the website always prompts the download file instead of taking you to the app or reminding you to use the app instead. I also get feedback often from people I invite to meetings that they had trouble in one way or another figuring out how to join the meeting. So if you're going to be using this software with people who don't use this software, it might cause problems.

Overall: Very basic conference call scheduling and execution

Pros: Once I can get someone to join my meeting, it goes very well.

Cons: Something changed a couple of months ago because now everyone has a problem joining my meeting. It isnt clear what they have to do because of all the options they see (join, start, etc). Does Join mean join a meeting or join join.me? Does start mean start a meeting or what? It used to be 'download app' and they could download and run...very easy. Now I'm thinking about canceling and going to a difference service.

Overall: The difficulty in getting someone to share their screen with me is a show stopper. IT has gotten much harder/complicated about 2 months ago.

Pros: Ease of use and quick connectivity.

Cons: No issues so far.

Overall: We have been using join.me for 18 months and it has become a part of every meeting in our company. We even use it in the conference room instead of hooking up the projector. Using join.me has helped us reduce our meetings by an average of 8 minutes per meeting. This may not seem like much but considering we average 4 meetings a day for various departments, this starts to add up to significant time savings.

Join.me is easy to use, we frequently host meetings that include people outside our company and they can easily join our meeting and we can even pass to them to host as needed. Simple and easy to use tools make this a great addition for our company. About 25% of our employees work remotely or travel frequently and join.me has been a huge improvement over our prior web meeting service for those team members.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take advantage of all the tools they offer, it will make a difference for you.

Pros: Screen sharing sessions are critical to my line of work. Join.Me makes the process simple and straightforward for all. I like having Join.Me integrated with my calendar, as well as having a dedicated URL with my company name. Additionally, I have international calls from time-to-time. I truly appreciate that Join.Me offers international dial-in numbers for geographies all over the globe.

Cons: It seems there is a new version of the software nearly every time I log-in and I am always being prompted to install the newest version. This may be operator error, but I find it clunky that I cannot click the link in email invitation that I generated to activate my host status in the meeting. To ensure that I am the host, I need to click on the application saved on my computer.

Overall: Overall, Join.Me has been a huge asset for me and my team. It is easy to use for both the host and for meeting participants, no matter where the individuals sit around the world.

Pros: The software is quick and easy to get a client to join you in a meeting, you just send them to a link that you can keep the same for every meeting. It also works fast. I tried just using skype but it was SUPER slow for screen share. After that I realized why we use join.me. The recording feature is great if you use it a lot.

Cons: I wish the monthly plan was more like per month. It works great though so it's actually a great deal, it's just not worth it if you don't use the recording or other premium features much. The free version is great though.

Overall: You can share your screen super easily. Great for any sales calls or meeting with clients. Super easy for people to join. We did remote trainings sometimes and we loved how we could record the sessions for people who missed.

Pros: - Easy to collaborate with clients/vendors that are not in the same place

- Screenshare capability which is superior to Hangouts/Skype

- Clear, glitch-free conversations

- Easy to make someone else a presenter

Cons: - Screen zooms in and out with a slight touch (too sensitive)

- Option to connect through phone/website is a bit confusing. Sometimes a user connects using both and the entire call gets disrupted

- Have to download an additional software to be able to present

Overall: Easy to get on calls and hold conference meetings with users from different parts of the country. I'd recommend it over Zoom.

Pros: The best thing about Join.Me is the ability to remotely connect for conferences as well as remote support without needing to configure anything. Being able to generate a meeting and invite anyone regardless of the hardware they're connecting with makes for an extremely efficient and powerful troubleshooting and collaboration tool.

Cons: I've occasionally ran into issues with the web app loading properly across browsers, but this hasn't occurred in quite some time, so it's likely an issue that's already been repaired.

Pros: Join.me is so easy to use, I can't believe it's not the only solution. I have used others, like GoTo, but Join.me is so simple. I can do video or just conference calls. I can share my screen or take over anothers screen. I can draw on the screen if needed to explain my point. Scheduling a meeting takes seconds or I can have someone join a call in seconds by sending them a personal link. There is also a web version and desktop version. I cannot say enough good things about Join.me and I will never go back to GoTo.

Cons: The only thing I would like to see, and perhaps they have this ability and I don't know about it, is to be able to schedule and send ONLY the call in info. Sometimes my clients get confused when an email invite is sent and has video instructions.

Overall: Conference calls, video chats, and communicating with remote co-workers and clients has never been easier.

Pros: Join.me is the easiest screen sharing tool. . Quick connections, full screen view for participants and static conference line numbers if you want to connect by phone. The Outlook Plug in is a must and makes it super simple to send a quick request for a screen sharing meeting.

Cons: Lacks some of the tolls of Go To Meeting (recording options etc.) but for the price you cannot beat it.

Overall: Would highly recommend this for Business Developers, Customer Service and technology team members that need to quickly and easily conduct screen sharing meetings

Pros: We have used join.me for many years and have always found it to be straightforward to use, easy to access, and simple to use. The interface is very low profile, and I have preferred it over GoToMeeting and WebEx, which both seem to be much bulkier. Join.me is lightweight and quick to access. It also just works... my clients have never had any issues in linking to it quickly and rarely have we run into any issues with firewalls or other restrictions. We have had other screen sharing software come bundled in other products we have bought, but we have always preferred join.me and will continue to use it going forward.

Cons: I really have little to say that is negative about this product.

Overall: Join.me is really inexpensive for the features it provides. It is easy to share my screen, share control, and switch presenters. It has saved us thousands over other products.

Pros: I love that you can record the call/video. And that you can give control of your computer to clients. That's a great feature. And I love that I can run it on Chrome. Some of the others are IE only.

Cons: It's querky. Sometimes the prescheduled meeting starts, sometimes it doesn't. And the strangest part is even if you only have one seat, you can log on for a demo and somehow your clients go to "another" account with the exact name as yours. Customer service is a joke. I've written numerous times with no reply.

Overall: For the most part it's a pretty good program. It does have a serious "lag" on both voice and mouse. I renewed for another year because I could not find another program that had the features I needed.

Pros: I am still learning more about the various things I can do while dealing with a customer online. The capability to alter pens with ease, develop shapes, draw, and emphasize makes my task a lot easier. Due to the fact that he or she understands that duplicating exactly what I describe is not as required as it was in the past, the capability to tape the session makes it more affordable for my customer.

Cons: When the private finalizing up with the conference presently has an account, I do not like the fact that it requires you to establish an account to host a conference. It used to let you use it without an account the initial time, which was excellent.

Pros: I use it to highlight issues on designs, web pages, etc. You can capture the image, point an arrow at it, add text windows.

Cons: I use the free version and you have to pay to have more storage. I use links to outline processes that stuck around for the company for awhile and when the storage was used up those links died. That made it impossible to retroactively fix the process documentation. Not sure if paying would have brought those links back.

Overall: works as expected and makes it easy to communicate screen clips with team members.

Cons: Video chat can be choppy at times and gets worse with the more attendees you have on the call. People seem to drop off and have to log back in.

Pros: My team has been using Join.Me for a couple of years now. It is fairly straightforward and easy to set up. I tend to use it often for screen sharing purposes. We use it for most of our team calls as a good chunk of my co-workers are remote workers so it helps to keep the team connected. We do a lot of calls internationally, so it saves us a lot of money so that everyone does not need an international calling plan. From what I saw, it seems to be cheaper than other options out there.

Cons: We have had points where the calls seems very faint. I have had poor experiences using support and they are constantly changing up our account managers. I am bounced around to find someone to talk to!

Overall: Join.Me works pretty well most of the time, but my difficulty is when I need to contact their support team. I don't see my team switching to anything else.

Pros: It is generally easy to work with and intuitive. Most people we invite to meetings are able to connect without issues. Audio is very good. Easy to record sessions.

Cons: We have had issues recently with others unable to join meetings. Transferring the presenter role is somewhat cumbersome. There are less expensive alternatives.

Overall: We originally selected join.me because the screen frame speed was faster than other options and did a good job of showing our programs in demos. Others have caught up since.

Pros: Easy to use, pro version allows to share my screen with multiple users at once

Cons: Hsd a conflict with screen resolution and use. Wasted ALOT of my time diagnosing. Now I need to be using a much lower resolution than my machine is capable of. Also, there was a windows update that rendered join me useless a few weeks ago. Had to use my IT support team to resolve. I rely on join me and get frustrated when it doesn't work. It also costs me money in lost productivity.

Pros: This product is great! Our company sells software so when we are doing demos or walk throughs of our software we use this product to share our computer screen so that our customers can have an interactive demo!

Cons: The only thing that is difficult and makes it so we can't use this product is there are multiple people in different locations wanting to do a demo. This product does not allow for multiple people from multiple locations to join a 'meeting'

Pros: The software is un-cluttered, unlike other online meeting tools. I deal with the elderly and they need the user interface to be very simple, and that is why I chose Join Me. GoToMeeting and other providers clutter the user experience with chat windows, complicated audio instructions and an intimidating theme. Too much to absorb by the client.

Cons: 1. If the user on the client side is using a tablet, JoinMe requires an app to be downloaded rather than just using Safari.

2. Once user on client side connects, they are faced with the photo option. Again, the elderly tend to get confused by this.

3. Once I log out on the host side, it does not always log me out. Although it appears as though I have logged out, once I launch the program again, I see that I am already logged in. This leads me to believe that the program is always running in the background, even when I am not using it.

Overall: Overall, I enjoy the program with its ease of use on both the client and host side.

Pros: It was super easy to schedule meetings and get things started in a video meeting. The quality and option for phone use was great.

Cons: A couple of big problems with Join.me was the minimal feature selection. Paying for a business account we still could only schedule with a single user. This led to a lot of confusion with other scheduled parties. The overall quality was subpar and we had a lot of issues with people dropping calls and losing out on conversations.

Fine. Not horrible but I've used better options.

Pros: Pretty run of the mill and easy to learn. There's some helpful functionality (recording meetings, etc.) if you poke around and explore. Overall it's a pretty standard meeting platform.

Cons: It's a bit clunky to "knock" and allow people into a meeting, and switch presenters- not what you what when trying to impress clients. It can also be difficult to make sure you are OUT of the meeting when it's done - you need to "x" out of 3 different areas.

Pros: Easy to set-up and manage screen-shares to handle customer service needs. Like the personal link options as well as the ability to advance schedule meetings.

Cons: Sometimes our end-users have difficulty downloading the software needs to access a screen-share session. Wish they could just click a link to join meeting.

Pros: The music is hilarious, whatever person came up with the hold tunes is brilliant and we get a good kick out of them. The software serves it's purpose of talking with people for conference calls, and it makes it easy to call in and hang up. Sharing your screen, giving others access to control your screen etc. It's all good stuff.

Cons: The videos lag. Also, we recently switched to Zoom and they provide you with the ability to soften your facial features (I know, I'm a princess). But when working from home this feature comes in super handy for the female (and I'm sure male) population.

Overall: Join.me serves it's purpose for company calls. You have the ability to share your screen, take control of someones screen, record calls, it's like they thought of everything! :)

Pros: I like that you can send an invite through the desktop app or the integration into outlook to your meeting attendees and it provides them with phone numbers for all areas that would be needed. The actual meeting with your attendees is smooth and if you have a powerful network connection then you are going to have a great meeting. Easy to start, use and end.

Cons: Noticed lately that the more attendees you have in a meeting the more static and performance issues some of the attendees experience during the meeting. Hopefully this gets fixed but is doable for now.

Pros: Join.me has a super easy joining process for your customers. I've used a few of these tools in the past and have also joined a few others as a meeting guest. Most rely on sending an email, a call in code and other layers that Join.me really eliminates. You simply tell customers to go to join.me, click join, and enter this code and then tell them the code. Best of all the free package works great.

Cons: They don't charge anything for the free package and will routinely try to nudge you towards upgrading. They also require you update your software from time to time which can catch you off guard if your'e starting meetings on the fly.

Overall: Gives me the ability to screen share in 30 seconds or less with instructions to people on the viewing end being really simple to manage.

Comments: Since I'm involved with a company who sits on top of WebEx, GoTo, join.me, etc., I have been a heavy user of these apps for years. Join.me stands above just about every other competitor in the space. The quality of the experience for the spend is practically unmatched.

Pros: They have a hip brand, which makes it appealing for clients to join my meetings, even if they have never seen Join.me before. Their app is super lightweight from the presenter's point of view, very nice user UX. And then I am able to setup a vanity URL, so I can have a personal meeting link. And very important....people don't have to download to be a part of the meeting on join.me. Joining directly from a browser is a key piece of functionality few others in the space have.

Cons: Join.me is weak on video. They have been around for years, and only just this Summer did they update their platform to support video. Their screensharing fps is also rather middling, which hurts when my main use case is showing multimedia/videos when screensharing.

Pros: I first used Join.me when I was trying to help someone out with their computer and needed to access their desktop. This Program allows screen sharing and presenter sharing which allowed me to point out visually where to go to correct the error. Wow Awesome! I then used the platform for a web conference and everyone loved the interface and ease. By far one of the top in its class. Try it and you will love it. The pricing is better than most as well.

Cons: First, the pricing is absolutely fair for what you get. However I wish all these webinar conference apps allowed for pay by use function. If I don't use the system regularly it is hard to justify the expense but I'd buy credits if offered. So this is more a thought for all in class. But this app is very reasonable if used a lot.

Overall: This may be the easiest solution to get everyone on board and into a meeting. I highly recommend giving it a try and I think they offer trials.

The overall quality of the video is pretty good! The icons are big enough and the colors help you to find any option you need without searching into multiples options.

Cons: For some people is not easy install the software since you need to make multiple steps and sometimes the website might be blocked by the company's internet administrator. When you click on the option to download it could take a few minutes to start and many people think it doesn't work...

Overall: It has been good. Most of the times it's easy to use but sometimes I have a hard time trying someone to install it. I really like the option to have a copy of the recording just a few clicks away, so you can even email it.

Pros: Join.me allows you to share a screen, or a window, or just a browser tab. You can lock a conference to require permission to join or simply open it up for anyone.

Cons: Early on, the built-in audio had some issues, but this seems to have been resolved.

Pros: The UI for Join.Me is very neat. They have a conference feature that allows multiple people to join the call if remote support is needed. I also like that it has the ability to get control of mouse and keyboard

Cons: It is not as robust as GTM. There are several key features that are missing that would be helpful. Also sometimes clients have a hard time getting Join.me up and going because it is blocked by their IT and GTM is all that works.

Overall: We are to provide remote support to our clients and get on a conference call when needed. we use this as a backup from out GTM. We are able to communicate with clients on a day to day basis.

Pros: Arranging conference calls with external people is often a mess. With join.me I can usually get everyone ready quite quickly. The mobile app is actually great and allows screensharing also on a small iPhone. Main features are supported including recording, muting, screen/windows sharing. Very reliable.

Cons: Not all the countries are supported with local phone numbers, this sometime is a issue. If VoIP is ok I would consider appear.in as well. Price is not cheap, especially if you make few calls a year. You need to download and install an app for video sharing. I opened once a support ticked, never got a reply.

Overall: I stopped using this platform because we no longer needed it. They sold me a one-year contract without disclosing that I could not terminate at any time without a credit. Now I am stuck paying for services I am not using. They should have a program that bills at the full monthly amount and reimburse the remainder. This is an unethical company.

Pros: So for our marketing agency business, 90%+ of our customers are out of our state and using online meetings / screen share is critical for the success of our business as we interact with our customers. We used Cisco WebEx for a number of years and had many tech issues internally and with our clients. Immediately we we started with Join.me those went away. As a result, we even changed our phone provider to Jive, a Join.me company.

Cons: So I may need some technical training with how to best integrate with my calendar but besides that we're very happy.

My number one pick to quickly do a screen sharing meeting.

Pros: Easy to set up a screen share meeting. A link is clearly provided that I send in an email to the person I am meeting with.

I have never had an issue with the recipient of the meeting link not being able to quickly join the meeting.

Basic meetings are free of charge.

Can easily pass presenter roles back and forth.

The app always opens quickly and with no issues.

I can clearly see who has joined the meeting.

Cons: I have not run into any issues with this program or come across any features that I need that it does not have.

Overall: With join.me I am able to help our agency force throughout the state quickly resolve issues that they may be having. It has also been great to be able to quickly share my screen with agents so I can assist in training and sharing analytics that they otherwise would not have access to.

Pros: The most interesting is that you have no to download/installation of a tool or application to start viewing, just open the browser and send the link. Also, Join.me had a simple to use interface. This made it easy for users to share and chat with us about their issues or problems they wanted to discuss with us. Generally, we will use Join.me for ad-hoc screen sharing sessions with customers. My department uses it. It allows us to quickly establish a session with our customers to troubleshoot problems that they may be having with other applications.

Cons: I can't really say that I dislike something, it is one moment when you have to have a specific join.me dial-in conference number to record audio for the meeting. It is nice that there is a record meeting option that emails you the meeting afterward, but if you are dialing in on your own conference line, the audio cannot be recorded from that line.

Pros: I chose JoinMe because it's simple. Other software require downloads & since I use it for sales demos, training & webinars, I needed something that's simple for even the most un-tech saavy user. Two clicks & they're in. In 4 years, I've never had audio or video issues.

Cons: Not sure why there are so many audio phone numbers included in the invite. It's overkill & sometimes confuses recipients.

Overall: I use JoinMe almost every day. My presentations & trainings last about an hour & can have up to 10 people attending/partcipating. I love being able to pass the presenter role, record the session, see who's speaking & get monthend reports. Great software!

Pros: Simple, easy to use and minimalist interface. The free version accommodates most basic conferencing needs.

Cons: The pro version is probably too expensive for small startups or budget-conscious users.

Overall: For freelancers, small businesses, and even large corporations, Join.Me can be a totally free solution for your online meetings and conferences. The free version allows you to hold unlimited meetings with up to 10 participants, including up to 5 video streams. You can talk, chat, share files, and share control of your computer. To unlock advanced features such as allowing up to 50 participants, more video feeds, international conference call numbers, customizable links and backgrounds, and some iOS/Android integration, you have to upgrade to a pro account.

Overall, Join.Me is a nice and simple option to quickly connect for online audio and video conferencing at no cost. If you need the additional features, you can get the pro version for a small monthly fee, but that's on an annual subscription basis. A standard price for a one-year online conferencing SaaS product is too expensive in my opinion. It will turn away small startups and budget-conscious businesses.

Better for call-in meetings, Join.Me can present difficulties for new users.

Pros: The participants do not have to download anything to see your screen. This is huge as it is a very big timewaster in many meetings with everyone trying to figure out their downloads and then installing something to join the meeting.

Cons: - When you pause the meeting I want the option to continue showing the last screen I was on which, IMO, makes it less noticable that you paused your presentation and are getting the next piece ready. Currently, the moment you pause it the participants stop seeing your screen and just a background image with little bubbles of the participants names.

Pros: A cloud based meeting and collaboration tool, it provides functionality such as remote control of one's desktop as well as screen share.

The application allows you to kick off a meeting immediately or schedule it, integrating with google calendar.

Cons: I've had a few problems with connections in the past when collaborating with more than one member of my team, I've found that alternative software sometimes works better.

I can't put my finger on what or what causes the problem other than it doesn't like poor internet connections much.

Having dropping connections during meetings is not ideal.

Pros: I decided to try this software simply because I could do that for free and stayed with this program because it is qualitative. First of all I can say that connection is quite well and I never experienced problems with noise or something like this, secondly it was very easy to start, I did not need a lot of time to understand how everything works, and thirdly there are really interesting and interactive abilities for customizations so you can make your conversations and presentations more colorful and funny

Cons: I have not noticed any great problems yet so far I am using this tool(2 months). But even now I can say that except already existed cool abilities for customizations that I mentioned it would be really great to add more technical options during the very presentation, some things that allow you to show something closer, emphasize something and so on.

Pros: What i like the most is that this system is very easy to use, a lot of people can join the meeting and at the same time we can share our screen to complete a training or to share important information that the people in the meeting have. In addition the posivbility to record the meeting help us to review the meeting/training and has it as a prove for any additional situation we may encounter. On the other hand the system provide the possibility to download the application on the cellphone and we can take the meeting/training wherever you want.

Cons: What I least like about the software is that the application does not look like the same as the page, so when you are learning to use it, is very difficult to find the options you are looking for. In addition, in case that internet connection fails, the recording stops without letting the presenter know.

Pros: The idea of join.me is incredible. Being able to have a conference call and screen share/video is a necessity when attempting to close deals. The client receives a personalized link and clicking it will allow them to sign in to the call.

Cons: The execution of the conference call lacks functionality. It has confused multiple possible leads that has lead to us losing business. Just yesterday I spent 30 minutes straight trying to get my screen to show up for the client. We ended up ditching join.me all together. It told the client that he needs to download the application. He downloaded it and then logged in and it listed him twice in the call. He was able to hear me on the conference line, but was unable to see my screen or face on video. I hate to write this review but it needs fine tuning.

Overall: Would love to use going forward but it's tough to do it when it frustrates potential clients.

Pros: Extremely easy to launch a screenshare with someone else. There are often times when I'm speaking with a customer on the phone and realize that I need to launch a screenshare to get them on my computer. Join.Me is my go-to because of how fast it launches and how easy it is for someone to join.

Cons: The free trial only allows you to have 6 participants join. There are often times when I use the "Chat" feature. When you message someone in the Chat, there is no noise to signify that a message has been received. Unless the individual you have a screenshare up with is diligently watching the chat queue, they have no idea they've received a message from you.

Pros: It is very easy to use and the whole process is so fine-tuned that I can easily share screens, even to a larger audience, without any hiccups. It is simple too, in the sense that I can get people who haven't used this software to use it without any training. Very useful while making a sales call. The recording feature is also great, audio and video qualities are superb. I use it schedule calls, discuss and develop demonstrations just before a sales call so that I can remember what was discussed and how it progressed during the previous call.

Cons: Not much to complain about. But a little bit too pricey for startups. The free version is fine, but the premium had some additional functions like screen recording. Bugs are encountered while we access from a remote location. There is a limit to the number of attendees for a meeting.
