  • Simple and light weight Oct 14, 2017

    Works well for my needs. I like having the push notifications when someone enters a room. It would be nice for the system volume to actually effect the call volume. Calls always play at max volume, regardless of the volume rocker. Might be an iOS issue because I also notice this with one other video calling app. PLEASE MOVE THE BLOCK BUTTON. Twice I’ve accidentally blocked another caller by accidentally double tapping them, as Block appears in the top of the context menu when you tap another caller.

    Excellent only negative is that I cannot find a way to resize or relocate pop ups aside from that brilliant but lately the video is so jerky as to be unusable it vibrates up and down at about 10fps

    It would be really helpful if it had a call history and unfortunately when you open the chat , you can’t actually see yourself in that small window downside which in the old version of this app it was possible... I also appreciate it if you improve the knocking message... sometimes when someone knocks it doesn’t send me the message and It would be perfect if we would know who knocked, I mean I wish the name of the guys would have been appear once they knock... so in this way, even if you’re not around your system to open the app , you’ll know who knocked. Thank you sooooooooooo much . Your app is AMAZING.

  • Great replacement for Room Jan 4, 2018

    By DonaldM
    I was using Room until they closed down and this is a good replacement, if not better. The only thing I don’t like is that it prompts for “how did you like the video” after every disconnect. There is a Skip button but it’s still a little annoying. Other than that it’s great!

    Works awesome for me. I'm not sure why so many users are posting negative reviews, but it is such a breath of fresh air from all the sign-up/download-app shenanigans of other services. I just wish there was way for a guest to 'knock' once they join the group (or that the room admin get a notification whenever someone joins the room).

    Does not work with BlueTooth and does not show proper names for devices. E.g. hash-names are shown, such as "7f6c1", "3d560" instead of "Camera, front", "Camera, brack". No bluetooth headset support, makes it completely useless, for me atleast. Please fix! The service works OK in Google Chrome but is really resource heavy, was hoping for some sort of "acceleration" by using the App instead, but it is actually worse than just using a browser.

  • Still too much for the iPhone to handle May 4, 2018

    By CS4288
    I have the iPhone 7. It is extremely choppy...to the point where it takes 5-10 seconds for the app to respond. When it does finally respond, half the time it doesn’t do what you asked it to do. I have sent incomplete messages in the chat log, switched to other apps when trying to select one of the options on the bottom of the screen, the list goes on. I even rebooted my phone and closed all other apps. The problem persisted.

    I had 2 main problems with this app. (Samsung note 8) 1. I couldn't get the microphone to work during video chat 2. In 6 hours, without even open the app, it consumed 21% of my battery. Probably there are some issue with the background management. So sorry, because it seems very useful and easy to use.

    I use the desktop version quite often, but when I tried using the app, ir woulnd work via bluetooth earphone. I had to access the room through my phone browser, which defeats the purpouse of the app. Besides the app seems like just a ghost browser that open the usual site. 0/10 UX

    Not a native app. This is just a pass thru for the website. Only native app is for iOS. Possible ISP issues too, always says connection is blocked (all network settings are good).

  1. Get a customized link to your video chat room that you can use to invite up to 12 people to join your room
  2. Join meetings and video calls from almost any browser on any platform with near-universal compatibility
  3. After you invite your friends to join your video chat, you get handy push notifications letting you know when they've joined your room

    By kraazy3
    Just wish there was a way to turn the sound completely off as I am not always in the room alone.I have tried everything and not figured out how to do this.

  • Best user experience ever Mar 28, 2018

    By A Peluso
    So so so easy and smooth to use. Love this app on my iPhone and my laptop. Sometimes it has an issue with Bluetooth audio - when connect to my wireless headphones I can’t hear anything and they can’t hear me. But usually it’s fine.

    Not bad, but at least me, I'm experiencing issues with the connection during the videoconferences . I miss also the possibility to mute/unmute the micro when doing a video call with many people. You can shut off when connecting, but it's difficult to manage it when the meeting starts.

  • Good, but one issue Oct 16, 2019

    By IWantSafe😁
    I’ve had a pretty good experience with the app, my only complaint is that when I exit and re-enter the app I can no longer type in the chat.

    Simple to join, with a great user experience. Whereby enables guests to join meetings with little fuss, unlike other well known video conferencing apps, which complicate the process or force guests to sign up.

    The app was working fine until recently but I have recently experienced my front camera freezing with a blue screen on my Samsung A40. I have independently tested my camera using the general test mode by dialling *#0*#.

  • No Screen Share for iPad... Jan 25, 2020

    By aaaiiillleee
    I love Whereby for camstudy, but the screen share feature was not available for iPad... Hopefully they bring in screen share for iPad so I can share my iPad screen directly without mirroring to the computer.
