What's the best alternative to Google Hangouts?

Something that has a desktop/mobile/web application that supports video/audio calling and is easy to use

    Zoom is my favorite. Works really well with large groups. Desktop app and mobile apps are great as well. I use the iOS app pretty often to jump on calls while on the go.

    Loved Zoom. Not as buggy as Hangouts and much easier to use compared to the Cisco products. Works well on relatively low bandwidth as well.

      The audio quality is so bad that it's the same level as a payphone. Really not worth paying money for when there are better solutions.

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

    Even I recommend Zoom for professional conferences but if you are looking for something more casual and fun than you might love Houseparty

    At this point, WhatsApp covers all my personal communication needs. Voice calls, video calls, texts and a web client.

    If you want to play with bots as well, Facebook's Messenger platform has everything under the sun.

      I love Facebook Messenger and I love how it is doing everything to take on all other chat apps + is feature-packed like Telegram. Native apps for Facebook Messenger on computers is something that I wish to see soon.
