Best video conference tools I've ever used! Skip those first 10 minutes of meetings on Skype that people just say "Can you hear me? How about now?", and just start talking!

Pros:

Works perfectly, easy to use. Just start talking

Cons:

Absolutely none

Cons:

hmm...none

I really love the software and we're using it at picksaas to do video conferencing. The best thing about is it that everybody can enter with just one link, like the simplicity!

Pros:

meetings in just one click, simple and user-friendly, screen sharing

Cons:

none so far

Love that you can generate a meeting room on the spot. And the meeting name generator is quite clever!

Pros:

Great, no-sign in backup for Hangouts.

Cons:

None.

Our team loves it because it's simple and works for everyone. I personally like that it shows all of the participants in the same size by default, instead of zooming just on the speaker and thumbnailing everyone else. That makes it feel more connected with the group when talking.

Pros:

Simplest way to spontaneously video chat with your team, good audio/video quality, supplemented by a mobile app

Cons:

Needs more stickers, limited to 12 participants

When there is a sound coming in from one person, other people's input volume is lowered. This is quite annoying because when there's a noise in your background, you can't hear other people talking because there is sound coming in from your mic (which is just a noise in the background). So you need to mute yourself when you are in a noisy environment.

Pros:

customizable URL, just by signing up, you can own a URL

Cons:

Too over-tech mic input algorithm.

Cons:

nothing major.

!whereby is a great tool, but it has some interesting competitors that are free, specifically https://jitsi.org/ or https://itshello.co/ -- each has its limitations, but jitsi is a pretty close analog
