A Safer Chat App Than Zoom - Jitzi Meet

Zoom is under pressure due to data protection allegations, an account is required for Skype and Microsoft Teams and there are restrictions. 

In the shadow of the well-known video chat tools, a lean application is becoming increasingly popular, which does not require any software installation or account. We'll show you how to start a video chat in Jitsi Meet with just a few clicks. 


Whether for a meeting with colleagues or to keep in touch with friends and family: video chat tools are currently being used on an ongoing basis. But which software is best suited for this? Zoom has to fight data protection accusations, Skype and Microsoft Teams have to be set up with an account. The web app Jitsi Meet, which is still little known, makes it much easier. The free tool does not require any software or registration. With just one click, you can create a video chat without important video conference functions.

Jitsi Meet: video chat directly in the browser or via an app 



One-click and off you go: With Jitsi Meet you can start video conferences directly in the browser. Setting up a video chat via Jitsi Meet is a child's play. Simply enter a conference name in the web app and click on the Go button. In this way, anyone who knows the conference name can also attend the meeting. In order to protect the video chat from strangers, you can also set a password that must be entered when joining. In the video chat itself, you can share your screen or some desktop windows with your system audio, blur your background and exchange text-based content in the chat window. Jitsi Meet can also be used as an app on a smartphone.

Practical additional features and end-to-end encryption 

Jitsi Meet offers a few useful extras for video conferencing. In addition to the basic function of a video chat tool, Jitsi Meet offers some nice additional functions. Moderators can, for example, mute all participants with one click in order to eliminate disturbing background noise. In addition, each user can log on using a virtual hand signal, which enables a more organized schedule of meetings or online lessons. And the connection details are also displayed. This way you can see at a glance whose internet connection is stalling and save yourself wild accusations about the reason for stuttering and sound interruptions. The open-source software also scores in terms of data protection and promises end-to-end encryption via WebRTC. By default, this only works with two participants, but according to the developers' GitHub page, it can also be mimicked for several participants with its own servers. This may not be interesting for video chat among friends, but it allows companies to easily set up encrypted conferences.

  1. I don't chat all that much, I didn't even know Zoom, not to say about this new one. I already have little time for phone calls but I imagine that people that need chat when working or for personal pleasure, this new app is very useful. Nice from you to write about it.
