As you can see, there are many different ways to make a video call in 2023. If you're looking for a video conferencing app that you're going to use in the long term, I'd recommend checking them all out to see which one gives you the best user experience. It's not worth saving $5 on software you're not going to love.
At Zencal we have a simple philosophy called "use with love", which means that we only use the applications that we really love to use. Especially in time-based businesses like tutoring or consulting, it's so important to save as much time as possible. An ill-fitting videoconferencing app will cost you a lot of that time.
