Google, it's time to stop. Pick one chat/video messenger and make it the best.
Matt Horton@mattahorton · APM, Capital One Labs
@gabriel__lewis Agree, but I think this is them preparing to kill Hangouts
Alex @tpbtv
@gabriel__lewis I can't wait to see what will eventually happen with all the other applications that they are currently maintaining. They're wasting resources. Instead, they should focus on Allo and Duo and make them the best that they can be.

@gabriel__lewis seriously STOP THE MADNESS!

@mattahorton @gabriel__lewis Why kill it when you can update it again? :D https://www.producthunt.com/post...

We use Zoom at Product Hunt and the quality is better than any other service IMO. People traditionally prefer Google Hangouts, because they're easy and familiar, but they were previously capped at 10 people. Meet will allow 30 people. It will be interesting to see if anyone can win this space. SO. MUCH. COMPETITION. More here: Google quietly launches Meet, an enterprise-friendly version of Hangouts by @sarahintampa

@andrewett and just a few weeks ago, Amazon launched its video conferencing app.

@jackdweck of course you did
Arun Sathiya@arunsathiya · Product Hunter.
@rrhoover @andrewett Of course. cannot forget Amazon Chime here. Would love to see how both stack against each other.
Alex H@metalhaze · UX Designer
@andrewett @sarahintampa Zoom is better. When it's actually working....Had a meeting with our team yesterday and no one could start a Zoom session or download the latest executable. #fail

@andrewett We use Highfive at MacUpdate and have found it to offer a better connection, sound and picture than Google Hangouts (horrible) and even Zoom.

@jackdweck add appear.in to that list. I've been using that for awhile. Fantastic video quality, easy to use and great Mobile apps
Jack Dweck@jackdweck · Product Manager at Unroll.Me
@darrinrich it's in there :)
Tim Perry@pimterry · Tech lead at Softwire
@andrewett at Resin.io we all work remotely, and we do a weekly call with 50+ people, all on zoom at once. Works perfectly, every time. Competition would be great, but for us it doesn't seem to exist yet. 30 people isn't enough, and Amazon Chime somehow doesn't have a Linux client? We'll be with zoom for a good while yet.
Marcos Ortiz@marcosluis2186 · Co-founder at Capital Latino, LLC
@rrhoover @andrewett totally agree. The competition here is stiff with Zoom (in my company we are using Zoom and it´s incredible), Skype for Business, Cisco Webex, Amazon Chime and many more
Alex H@metalhaze · UX Designer
Call me crazy but I have no idea how to use this. I am signed into my enterprise account and I went to the website. What is a meeting code? How do I get one? Do I just make one up?? SO CONFUSED! Also, how the hell do I schedule something?
Tom Howard@thomas_howard1 · Founder @ HackerFleet.com
@metalhaze agreed, I've got no idea how to use it, if I need to sign up for something, or how I could use it with my customers. Sticking with UberConference

Gotta love these background splash images... "Look, here's where you'd much rather be... now enter your meeting code".
Baptiste Laget@baptistelaget · Lead Software Engineer, OctHuber.
We've been test-driving Meet as part of the Early Access Program from Google in our company for a few months now, and I can only recommend every Hangouts user to switch immediately. Better user experience and even improved conferencing quality (we were experiencing a lot of connection issues). Annoying sound echo seems to be gone too. Still waiting for a real mobile "Meet by Google" solution though, and still missing a "click to call" a contact feature.
J Mueller@j_mueller
@baptistelaget That's good to hear because the dropped connections and echo issues were a major pain to our virtual team members.
