Lately I’ve been very busy – who isn’t these days? My kind of busy has meant less blogging and more collaborative planning and conversations.
I’m always on the lookout for flexible options for conversation spaces that are hassle free, and don’t need complex logins or software downloads. Free is also good (while it lasts!)
So effortless video meetings have become a must – and now I think having my own meeting space is also a must! I’ve tried out the new browser-based tool at Meetings.io http://meetings.io/ with a small group of people a few times, and have been very happy with the ease of communication. Works across a range of devices – nice!
New features are promised, but for now the standard features work ‘out of the box’ with the click of a button.
Better still, I have my own vanity meeting room, making it drop-dead easy to invite people to a meeting. Better still, I can find and retrieve past chat logs and files, all in one place. Apparently I can schedule new meetings and manage all my upcoming meetings, but I’ll be honest – I haven’t tried this out yet.
Overall, this is better than Google Hangout – simply because so many people still get confused by the whole Google+ meeting thing – and it’s free versus video group meetings in Skype. Other stuff is more expensive again.
Give it a go and see what you think!
