Anything better than Skype for talking to potential customers?

I’m starting the beta program for my product and I’d like to do some usability testing at the same time. So, I want to have a video conf with people that are going to test it and see their screens. Is there anything better than Skype for this? I want something that is as little of a hassle for the users. My biggest problem with Skype is having to log out and log in constantly to keep business and personal accounts separately and also I don’t want my Skype account to turn into an informal support channel (it would make it really hard to deploy a support team later on).

    We've been using Zoom for a while now. Works well, I'd suggest giving it a go.

    Used Zoom for this type of things too. Fairly easy to set up and works well.

    There are some pretty serious issues with Skype at the moment, which Microsoft hasn't fixed yet: You can have a look at, under Communication, it ranks the most secure and privacy preserving communication apps.

    Easy to use. Great video and sound quality. Uses less bandwidth than Skype.
