With the pandemic’s end nowhere yet in sight, many of us are forced to undergo work-from-home schemes. Ever since, this beneficial opportunity for those who get to experience it, has been working with a little or almost to none losses in terms of productivity.

To maintain or maybe enhance that productivity, here are some tools that can be used to conduct virtual meetings.

1. Zoom

What makes this tool stand out among the rest is its host-participant feature, giving the host the complete control of the meeting. This is ideal for presentations and classes.

  • Max Number of Attendees: 100
  • Account Registration: Not Required
  • Screen Sharing: Yes
  • Screen/Sound Recording: Yes

2. Google Meet

If you are already using Gmail, then it is easier to access this tool. Some certain features differ between the free and the paid ones. With the pandemic ongoing, Google Meet offers free use of the features of the paid version until September 30, 2020.

  • Account Registration: Required
  • Screen Sharing: Yes
  • Screen/Sound Recording: No
