Connecting to Around meetings is as simple as other video communication apps-- you simply share a link to your personal meeting room (just like with Zoom). You don't even need an account to join a meeting!
Around's user interface was designed to not be obtrusive. No unnecessary taking-up-of-space, no messages popping up; maximum privacy and audio/video focus is all you need.
Features: This application runs on Mac, Linux, Windows, and eventually even on the web. You can get up to 30 people sessions (and no time limit). And, of course, it was designed for you to share files, notes, presentations, and your screen, like a pro. And now... drum roll...
It's free to use! (For now, anyway)
Though Around was announced early this year, there has been an eternal wait-list for it. So by all means, you can go to their website and enter your email to join the "wait-list" (which, again, is free). But for reference, it took 5+ months for me to get access to this app. Nonetheless... I have some good news for you.
