As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, video conferencing solutions have been in huge demand. Actually, video conferencing applications were downloaded 62 million times in March 2020 – an outstanding record. Much of that growth has been because of businesses that needed to switch to remote working due to the lockdowns and social distancing rules.

People had to move their social lives online and with this trend, there has been an increase in the demand for video conferencing software to connect with their close ones and to be able to participate in virtual activities and remote work.

There are many video conferencing tools you can use and here you can read more about the features of two of the most popular solutions – GoRemote and Discord.

Discord

A free voice, text, and video conferencing app that originally was created to cater to the needs of gamers but is becoming more and more popular with the general public.

Because it was built for the gaming community, Discord provides users a way to find each other, talk to each other, and coordinate play. The tool supports text and voice chats, as well as video calls, and allows users to get in touch the most convenient way.

Discord makes chatting really easy which is especially useful when playing PC games. There is a search function to help you find and add other people as friends for quicker communication. But a lot of people use Discord not only for talking to each other during playing but also as a social and organizational tool.

You can connect social media accounts to the app – such as Twitter, Xbox, Twitch, Steam, Spotify, and easily track down your friends and people you know. The app combines public chat rooms and private communications so you can use it for more than just connect to people you already know.

Some of the key features include meetings with up to 25 participants without a time limit, file sharing, screen sharing, video recording, and a very advanced interface.

GoRemote

This video conferencing tool was born at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team behind it saw the need for a solution that will allow businesses and companies to easily switch to remote work and provide their employees with a tool for effective collaboration and communication.

GoRemote was created to cater to all these needs while offering a highly secure video conferencing tool with a lot of professional features. Some of these include unlimited password protected video calls, integrated chats, videoconferences, document editing, screen sharing, and encrypted communication.

It is a secure, easy to use, and reliable solution that put the emphasis on security with end to end encryption. And since GoRemote is hosted in Europe, it is compliant with GDPR regulations. There are numerous industry-specific integrations – such as for government, finance, education, healthcare, consultants, law firms, media, software developers, and recruitment agencies.

You can also benefit from having the option to use branded video apps for iOS and Android, custom URLs, branded invitations, custom logos and signatures, and website integration.
