Alternatives to Google Hangouts for conf calls?

  • only Google+ is disappearing, not Google Hangouts?
    • we only use Google+ for planning conf calls via events...
  • has no limit w.r.t. attendance, but has a time limit (40 min)
    • time limit is not necessarily bad
    • Davide has good experiences with this
    • also allows recording the meeting (locally on system of host)
    • attendees don't need an account, only host does
  • maybe someone has a professional system we can piggy-back on?
    • Davide: WebEx quality is disappointing, no Linux client
  • Slack call feature is another option?
    • payed feature, only people who have joined Slack can join the calls
