Which webinar app you used before or plan to use?

Hi Community members.

 

I am curious about your experience regarding the meeting and webinar applications.
Which one do you prefer and why? What would you recommend for internal meetings, for webinars or for community events? 

My personal preference was the Zoom, but it seems I definitely have to change because of security reasons.

Hi @Peter Török and welcome to Community!

I have used several applications for webinars:

  • GoToWebinar - quite expensive and a bit old, but it's working well
  • Livestorm - my personal favorite! Lots of options: add automation rules, create live, on-demand or recurrent webinars, etc.
  • WebinarJam - we ran into a lot of bugs so would not recommend

For meetings:

  • Slack - perfect for internal meetings
  • Google Meet - working well for me as I'm a GSuite user
  • Zoom - well, as you said, looks like there are some security issues :)

For Community events:

  • Webex - it's the only one I've used because it was the company tool where I led an Atlassian Company User Group. It worked well but I find it a bit hard to use.

Let us know which tools you end up using!

@Manon Soubies-Camy Thank you for the detailed answer. It helps a lot :) 

I am in the middle of a test with GoToWebinar. Seems fine.

As far as I can see, there is plenty of choices, but the saint grail which is good for everyone doesn't exist. The perfect choice requires a lot of researches and tests.

I think I have used them all at some point. Here they are in the order of my usage today:

  1. Teams (used for work)
  2. Zoom (used for Atlassian activities as well as friends and family, NOTE: there is a lot of bad press on the lack of security around this and IMO if they don't act quickly they will see a big exodus)
  3. GoToMeeting (used for work)
  4. Webex (used for work but very rare, only when the host uses)
  5. BlueJeans (very rare these days now that Atlassian switched to Zoom)
  6. Skype for business (given it is being EOL-d I no longer use though some at work do)

I also heavily use Slack for all Community/Atlassian activities but that is about it as we use Teams at work.

Hi Jack,

 

Thank you for your answer. It seems you have plenty of experience, I am glad you shared with us. I will definitely consider your suggestions.

The last few weeks I have had to use pretty much all of them... it's been crazy!
(Am in a very commercial PM role!)

Herewith my two favourite and why:

1) MS Teams for the corporate. Seems to be really stable and with it being one of preferred tools at work, it's got everything we need for our calls (internal and external)

2) Zoom for all Atlassian Virtual ACEs. Stability is great and people seem to be more willing to come join a Zoom event rather than an MS Teams event (or other!) I really love the ability to have different views of cameras as well (gird, speak, etc) That really helps with hosting and monitoring expressions to stimulate interaction.

@Andy B - PTC Thank you for your comment. I am also like both, but I am afraid I couldn't use the zoom for my virtual event even I also prefer it's camera settings.
