Distance doesn’t matter
This video conferencing software differs from its larger competitors by being open-sourced. It provides no limits upon what you can do with it, making it stand out among the other options available.
No bars to tie you
Jitsi Meet provides an innovative way to build online connections to people.
Jitsi Meet’s largest competitor is Zoom. It exploded into popularity, overcoming Skype, by offering high-quality connections for large groups. While Meet suffers from quality issues when it has to host large groups, it's open source and the user doesn’t need to pay.
One thing Jitsi Meet has that is superior to Zoom, is that you don’t need to download anything to start using it. Unfortunately, it's more complicated to use and doesn't provide the video conference tools that are needed to run a big group.
Since this app aims more for simplicity, it lacks many features it could have without taking away from the basic design. Finally, loading it can be troublesome, but once it gets going, it does a good job.
Where can you run this program?
It requires iOS 11.0 and watchOS 4.0 and onwards.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes, Zoom is superior to Jitsi. It has a host of features but can also be used for basic calls. Livestorm is a much more expensive option, but it is perfect for larger companies that need to have large conference calls.
Jitsi Meet suffers from problems that keep it from succeeding in the call hosting arena. Its main saving grace is the open source nature of the program and the free-to-call model.
Should you download it?
No, it does not have the quality necessary to compete in the market.
