When groups are unable to meet in person they have to relay on new online venues such as Zoom, Skype or Google hangouts to host their group meetings. The interesting aspect of online groups is that they are not limited by location and can be more global in nature.
Some of the most popular platforms are:
ZOOM: Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for video conferencing meetings, audio conferencing, webinars, meeting recordings, and live chat. In the free version of Zoom, users can hold an unlimited number of meetings, but group meetings with multiple participants are capped at 40 minutes in length, and meeting can’t be recorded.
ZOOM PRO: Zoom Pro costs $14.99/month/meeting host, and this tier allows hosts to create personal meeting IDs for recurring Zoom meetings, allows meeting recording in the cloud or on users’ devices, and caps group meeting durations at 24 hours. https://zoom.us/
SKYPE: Easy video meetings with no sign ups or downloads. You can generate your free unique link with one click, share it with participants and enjoy effortless meetings. Free conference calls. No sign ups. https://www.skype.com/en/
GOOGLE HANGOUTS: Google Hangouts makes it easy to connect with people via talk, text, or video, and the app allows you to create groups that can be connected again and again. It also stores your past chats so you can pick up the text conversation any time and can refer back to past messages as convenient.
