Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

GoToMeeting reviews

"GoToMeeting is great for VOIP but not my favorite for video conferencing" What do you like best about GoTo Meeting? The VOIP functionality is fantastic, I love that I'm able to answer my work phone from my cell phone, anywhere. I'm also able to check voicemails when I'm out of the office without having to call a number or anything complex. The app is a great tool.

"Perfect for all our company meetings" What do you like best about GoTo Meeting? I love how easy GoTo is to use. I love that you can record sessions and share with those who couldn't attend. I also love that you can include documents for those attending the meeting as well.

"Reusable Meeting Rooms" What do you like best about GoTo Meeting? GoTo Meeting excels in setting up meetings swiftly and makes participation seamless from anywhere on any device. It has apps for Windows, Mac, Android, and iPhones, allowing users to join conferences conveniently. Setting up a meeting is swift and gives you the flexibility in how you wish to connect your audio, whether from your PC or phone. While traditionally video conferencing applications require you to enlist the details for your meeting, you can skip the entire procedure by creating a recurring meeting room, which you can recycle for discussions and host as many conferences after the first one. Reusable meeting rooms maintain your chat messages and shared data, leaving the flow of discussions intact for references. The conferencing quality on GoTo Meeting is nothing short is stellar on any device. You can collaborate on your work with other participants regardless of the device they're on during your video conferences. GoTo Meeting strives to be a seamless platform for collaboration through screen sharing. You can screen share any part of your computer or phone, including specific windows and the whole screen. GoTo Meeting allows you to give keyboard and mouse control to one specific user in the conference during screen sharing. This feature is very helpful during customer service conferences where we can assist them in specific tasks where a verbal explanation is inadequate. GoTo Meeting has excellent integrations with other GoTo applications, allowing you to convert meetings to webinars with ease for broader features and capabilities.

Google Chat reviews

This replacement for Hangout and Allo is sub par at best. I can't manually delete messages like I can with any other app. I also have to manually open each image one at a time to both send and view instead of selecting multiple to upload or swiping between images that were sent. This feels like a junior ancillary project from Google instead of a well fleshed out and developed app. It's predecessors we're superior. That being said, I do like the ability to multi emoji react to a message.

Nice update for Google Hangouts which is going away at any time. Hangout's used to be nearly an all in one for communication, but Google stripped a lot of the functionality for no particular other than they were introducing other apps that ended up dying on the vine. This is the replacement. Fairly basic, functional and the UI is slightly better than Hangout's. I hope Google continues to work with it instead of letting it go after 6-12 months. Right now I like it.

- Rob W

Again, updates have fixed nothing about this terrible app. Stay away from this if you have any other alternatives. Very buggy and dropped notifications. Unable to go direct video call in app, requires a separate app. Too much friction. Unable to open URLs in a separate browser, links open up in the app, which is a dumb idea.
