In a nutshell in this article, CNN discusses Facebook and Google realizing that Zoom’s share of live meetings must be too large, and they’re not going to allow it if they can help it:

Google & Facebook vs. Zoom

Interesting development, but not surprising. Goliath will always try to trump David. They’re not going to miss their piece of THAT pie!

zoom.us has had some pretty major hiccups of late, with privacy and issues that are really not a shocker given the massive overload they suddenly took on, which they were pretty quick to address, IMO. I have used Zoom a great deal myself over the last few weeks, with very few issues, and have had no breaches.

If there is a competition, I believe Facebook will win over Google, primarily because:

1) You don’t need to be a member to use it and overall success with Live video has been pretty decent; and

2) Google was plagued with fails with Google Hangouts and people (like me) got sick to death of trying to make it work – for YEARS, despite many promises things were “fixed.” And given the recent issues I’ve had trying to just get their APIs working on websites, I’m not encouraged. 🙄

Bottom line is that it does open up new opportunities, but I wonder how long they will offer these free, as they are touting to do initially to compete with Zoom. Only time will tell. 🤷‍♀️

A couple of questions:

➢ What do you use for video conferencing and presenting?
➢ What is your favorite?
➢ Why?
