    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

  • 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!

    If you're happy to give up your privacy (which we've all inadvertently done so already), this is a rather functional and reliable app.
  • Needs to be able to save rooms Nov 19, 2020

    By Tropism
    The application handles video calls better than Chrome, which causes the fan to spin hard, and Safari, which doesn’t require as much CPU. However, this app desperately needs some way to save a list of rooms. I hate having to first setup a business link then set the room every time I want to join a call. Please add this feature!

    my friend and I were looking for something to sorta hack our schools system in a way. we needed to speak at night while her phone was not able to be kept with her. so I went on a search.. and then *ta da* I found whereby. a beautiful set up. a cute chat room. clear audio. I love. corona can not stop us.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    Poor camera quality. I use an S10 and I still look messed up in my own camera. It saves internet data anyway so it seems fair.
  • Works well ! Oct 7, 2020

    I use it from my IPad Pro and would love to have the functionality of sharing my screen so that I can draw stuff in notes using my pencil while brainstorming.

    I've been using this daily for several years. Works great for client & staff meetings. Love that you can get a custom URL with your name or the name of your company. The app and web versions are equally good, but highly recommend the app for both Android & iPod Touch / iPhone.

    For some mind boggling reason, they force you to log in every. time. you open the app. I don't understand how they think this makes the app usable.

    As others say: app is just a wrapper around a web page (which isn't even made for the app, the FAQs aren't relevant, at least one link is broken), you can't join a room that exists only create a room - so 2 people with the app can't communicate. Use the website. It might not be the worst "app" ever but it's got to be a contender.

  • 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.
  • Mar 31, 2019

    By Subhrendu Chattopadhyay
    The problems I am facing are as follows. -The app has changed the microphone preference in a weird way. All the other notifications like WhatsApp/Hangout became inaudible after installing this app. They remain inaudible till I access the Appear.in app preference and select the proper microphone. I need to repeat this activity after sometime, as the app automatically modifies it to the default microphone. Devs, please fix it. -The recipients hear a feedback due to the microphone settings. The microphone settings is difficult to understand. -The camera is inverted. Therefore, can not share a text during the meeting.
  • Pedos use this app May 23, 2021

    By lilbuilderbuddy1
    I know this could probably be expected from video chatting things but I’m actually 12 and a LOT of predators has asked me to go on here. I just looked to up to see what it is and now I know why they wanted me to go on it now. Idk how you could fix this problem but maybe you can put like a warning before you go into video chat or something..

    Love the service (and Web version of the interface) but this app would at best scare away new users... And maybe even old. Very cumbersome to join an existing room, why would I want a webpage in an app and absolutely no respect for the design principles of Android UI. Back to scratch, this could be sooo good.

    By alessandro buffoli
    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.

    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.

    A previously useful reliable service crippled by sales and make-overs.. Appear.in used to be a great, reliable, free video conferencing service like jitsi, gotomeeting etc. At some stage people over at VCS got crazy and wrecked it. Sad story moving over to another service, the underlying technology is the same for all of them, anyway...

    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.

  • Still needs work Jan 8, 2015

    By dirtywest
    I love the idea and function of this app, but would love to see Safari compatibility. Also, the mobile app was almost useless for me when using 4G LTE (with 5 bars) and even while using public wifi. Conversations are laggy, video is choppy, and the app struggled in settings where Skype or Google Hangouts would normally function rather well.

    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.
  • Not up to what it claims can do May 19, 2018

    It says allow 4 people to be in a call but the forth one cannot enter room as it says room is full. No good at all
  • Good concept - needs work Jun 3, 2017

    By Bearcreekmom
    I’ve really tried to like this app and service. The concept of completely web-based conferencing is great, but the execution is weak. Audio can be rough - lags, gaps, static, etc. Didn’t try video. Screen sharing (from computer, not phone) was never clear. Think this is more for casual use. Definitely not a business tool.

    The whole "magic" of the app on desktop is that there's no need to setup anything. Just click one button and you have a room. Why make us create a profile? Might as well use Skype. It defeats the entire purpose.
