Here are a few alternatives to Hello. We hope you’ll find one you’ll like:
- Talky: Provides both video and screen sharing using WebRTC.
- Cisco Spark: Create rooms for video calling, group messaging and sharing.
- Appear.in: Group video calling for up to eight people.
- Jitsi Meet: Group video calling and screen sharing using WebRTC.
Thank you for supporting the Hello beta. We will continue to develop and improve WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications), the underlying technology for Hello.
