Zoom Alternatives

TimeViewer is an online meetings management software for small to large companies available at the same price range as Zoom. Zoom has an app version for iOS and Android devices while TimeViewer has an app for iOS, Android, and Windows devices. TimeViewer also has call sharing, chat, collaboration, whiteboard, user management, live/video conferencing, and meeting management features as Zoom.

However, Zoom still offers more functions than TimeViewer such as customizable branding, document management and storage, single sign-on, and role-based permission. Both have high customer reviews online but Zoom is a more beneficial video conferencing solution. Skype for Business is a video conferencing software for the same client size as Zoom.

However, Skype for Business pricing is lower than Zoom at $2 per month. Skype can be downloaded in iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices. Skype provides the same features as Zoom including API, chat, collaborative workspace, instant messaging, video streaming, and live video conferencing. Both have excellent vendor reputation online but Skype can be a cheaper alternative to Zoom.
