Join.Me is an excellent way to effortlessly join a group of people in a meeting even if they are using different chat clients.

Tired of having to use the same chat client as your meeting peers? Join.Me is here to save the day. It eliminates sign up issues with the same chat clients and allows you to carry on the meeting as if everyone were using the same client. The amount of information you can share is impressive. You can share screens, audio, or even video to communicate during your meetings. Invite people with a single simple link. Anyone can join no matter what type of chat client they're using.

Buttons come in handy, too. Their "Add me" button allows you to input more information instead of just sending out a link invite. Everyone can hook up seamlessly and carry out their meetings. Presentations are simple and elegant. As more people arrive, the client doesn't seem to experience a lot of slow down, a typical problem with some similar programs.

Pros

  • Super easy to use with many invite options
  • A single person can run the program without everyone else needing to download

Cons

  • Sometimes screens might load a little slow
  • You do have to pay for some features so it's not 100% free, something that will irk some users

The Verdict

This is a terrific all-in-one solution for presentations and group meetings. There's no need to download a lot of software or put a bunch of junk on your computer in order to do beautiful, powerful presentations that will hit home with members of your group. It's a mostly free download with a few features reserved behind the sometimes frustrating pay wall.
