Wall of Hate (sorry we had to 🫣)

Global teams need a video conferencing tool that is way more than a standalone meeting interface. Switching between tabs to make sense of scattered context, collaborating over a screenshare and outright draining meeting interfaces - just don't cut it anymore.

Not just our words...

Which group videoconferencing solution doesn't totally suck, apart from MS Teams? With arbitrary participant  sharing screen, no problems with headsets, etc. Discord sucks, Telegram sucks, Google Meet sucks, Slack's Huddle sucks

Roman Leventov

6 mos into working at a corp that uses WebEx for virtual meetings, i'm comfortable saying WebEx sucks

Google Meet is the worst video conferencing product of all time, and it never gets better, only worse.

Duane Moore

The “late to every meeting” is to be taken literally with Zoom.

Tiago Costa

How is Zoom still around? Microsoft Teams and Google Meet are cheaper, not to mention a zillion other products. Is it a status thing -- people think you're fancier if you invite them to a Zoom?

Daniel Feldman 🟥

I’m actually offended that another human being made this statement.

Mason Bradford

I can see @MicrosoftTeams is repeating the same mistakes as @Skype chat experience is just terrible and simply doesn't work. WhatsApp it is

Thomas Eljon 🤘

This isn’t how meetings are supposed to be.

Make your meetings intuitive, intelligent and integrated with the Video Calling App.

Teams is the slowest, clunkiest, piece of junk EVER. Entire thing needs to be re-written.

The Honest Prick™

ur app is TRASH @MicrosoftTeams

lux is #TeamVanjie

A lot of people responded with variations on "Teams and Meet suck"...

Which is just another question - why can't those companies make them good? They have all the money in the world to do it

Daniel Feldman

Google Meet is fucking abysmal!

It’s actually worse than web-Zoom, I think? It constantly locks up in Safari, or chucks me out of the video, and says “You lost your network connection”. I have a 900Mbps internet connection! I definitely have not!

Rhys Morgan

@Zoom why does your app keep crashing on MacOS Sonoma 14.4.1? Restarts my laptop every 5-6 times or so

Robert Anizoba

That’s crazy. Teams randomly stops working with no explanation and no steps to fix it.

Walter Whize

Zoom people either:

1. Use Zoom so much that they’re already always updated

2. Don’t use their own product

The rest of us just have to suffer until they feel compelled enough to change it.

ALX 🇺🇸

Every click and update like that matters. How many meetings moved off zoom bc of the inconvenience?

Maile

Sigh - new set of bugs then... Amazing how #Skype still doesn't work properly after all these years! 🙈

Uzzi aka Usman Naeem

POV: you are late to join a meeting

Jacob Matson

Yes, Zoom's privacy practices are awful and Google Meet is awful

Noa Kahalon

Inertia. None of those products are multiples better, which is what it would take to move.

Henry Poydar

Hot take: I'll take a Google Meet link over Zoom any day

Theo - t3.gg

I hope you’re fluent in sign language. That’s the only way I’ve been able to reliably use Google Meet, because the audio consistently sucks or drops

impatienceisavirtue

Is there a video conferencing platform made for designers and artists? Something that prioritizes stream quality, has great annotation tools for working sessions, with multiple simultaneous streams, etc...
Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex have some good features none of them feel great to use or hit the following points:
- Good stream quality for art, video, gameplay.
- Desktop audio sharing
- Annotation
- Easy to use, not bloated. Good UI.
"Linear is to JIRA what _____ is to Zoom." Basically.

Alex Schleifer

This is the worst thing about zoom. I’m pretty sure I’m late to every meeting because of it.

Vic

This is why we are building the Video Calling App.

A way to integrate context, not loose it. Host impactful discussions, not monologues. And make meetings intelligent, not draining.

I'm honestly wondering: does Zoom's success say something about the value of design/UX in products?

Thorsten Ball

Xanyar Kamangar

Now attempting skype via chromebook. Zoom doesn't work great on here either.

Catalina Eats at Death World

The @Skype icon has been following me for the last 15 years. I don't know how to get rid of this thing. I've tried everything. Deleting the app (obviously) doesn't work. Changing laptop and companies don't work either.

Ankur Shah

good lord i hate zoom calls

majukarp is saving for firefly

slack huddles work ok for audio and screen sharing. don't think there is any conferencing capability that always invites outside of workspace though.

MR. LUCKY

How is it possible that a huge enterprise application like Microsoft Teams just... doesn't work half the time? What even is that.

Santiago Ochoa

i hate to say that i’m starting to agree. zoom is making everything overly complicated

nick “lindy”quist

That sir is a feature not a bug. The features intention is to help you miss meetings you should have skipped anyways.

Tyler Palmerj

mr cata

Once again I would like to remind everyone that the product manager at Zoom who decided that users should be forced to update before joining a meeting should be fired.

I am now 2 minutes late

Alex Cohen

Yeah

Elon Musk

This is why we are building the Video Calling App.

seriously @MicrosoftTeams you couldn't have designed less user-friendly meeting links even if you tried, right? they're SO HARD to work with: copy, paste, send in emails... bloody mess, half of the time the calendar doesn't recognise them

ok so zoom was way better than incumbents bc of latency

but now we need a zoom competitor to pop up with WAAAAAAY better UX

who is building this???

Shriya Nevatia

Google is good at many things but Google meet sucks

Nimit Palija

Zoom option to watch participants as they wait for their update to finish so they can join a meeting

Soren Iverson

We think you got our point.

It’s time to host Intelligent, No-Bullshit meetings with the Video Calling App.

Its weird how Microsoft Teams just doesn't really work and everyone is fine just carrying on using it,

Tom Goodwin

Teams on my personal laptop refuses to remember my camera settings and refused to work with the computer’s microphone this evening. Also refused to run from a browser for some random reason.

Jenny Ross

at this point I think
@Zoom updates more than windows but yet I never see anything of value being changed.. what the hell is zoom even updating?

Cohezion | Tim 🧠🦄

Has anyone left Zoom because of their ridiculous terms of service and because the commies listen in / store all your conversations?

If so, what did you switch to? I hate that we use zoom buuuut the alternative suck for other reasons.

Jake Chapman

agreed. I used Zoom this morning. There is always some problem with it. Latency is one issue but I come across way more interface problems (logging in, audio, chat etc)

Vijar Kohli

This is the most funny and ridiculous thing I have ever read!  This is just a part of @MicrosoftTeams transcript from a recent meeting.

FYI, I don't have daughter.

Ashwin Jaiswal

Using teams is 🚩🚩🚩(and I use ms business premium)

Lukasz Mlodyszewski

I don’t do zoom meetings.

Having 8 zoom calls a day and pretending it’s work is ridiculous!

Meet me in person, where can actually get something done!

Sheron Barber

This is why Microsoft Teams is superior

Tridev Gurung

I’m actually offended that another human being made this statement. 🤮🤢

Mason Bradford

Skype has been here since 2003. That is 20 years.

So how come the call button doesn't work?

Yuval Oren

Does anyone else’s mobile @MicrosoftTeams app randomly get stuck for a message while typing but the next one is fine? It’s so inconsistent #shoutingintothevoid

Samuel David

Every time I'm in an all-day @WebEx seminar It needs so much juice it sucks down the power adapter *and* the battery

Blank

Its weird how Microsoft Teams just doesn't really work and everyone is fine just carrying on using it,

Tom Goodwin

The only reason that PM has a job is bc they were fired from gotomeeting for doing the same thing.

Zach Ware

Zoom now crashes at least once a day, usually in the middle of meetings. starting to remind me of Homers website in the Simpsons the way Zoom are trying to add so much in, please just do meetings really well.

David Gildea

> gets a zoom call invite
> clicks on it
> waiting to update zoom

Saurabh Kumar

I hate Zoom with passion. You will open it so you can quickly join a meeting and that is when the idiot will start downloading an update. Update that you can’t cancel.

Toby

I'm always early to my meetings and interviews, I like to join at least 5-3 mins early.

But on some very few occasions, MTN will just be running mad. I opened a link 10 minutes to a meeting before, and before Zoom finally loaded up and let me it, I was 5 minutes late.

Oghenekaro

We believe in spreading love, not hate. But, let’s be honest, some things need to change… like most meeting tools.

You get the drift now. Introducing...
Video Calling App
simple way to host intelligent, no-bullshit meetings.
Thank you! We will keep you updated.
