Jitsi

Jitsi is an easy to use open-source web-conferencing tool. Users can start calls in their browsers with no need to register, by just putting in a meeting name. After that users can ask others to join with the generated codes and/or passwords. The tool allows users to share their screens with other participants, stream and record their calls. Another feature is the possibility of raising or lowering your hand to indicate that you would like to speak. Jitsi allows for tablet or phone participation, though for this the app needs to be downloaded onto their device.

Evaluation: The tool is a good option for people with privacy concerns as well as people who need to create a meeting on the spot.

Cost: free
