Anyone else have lots of issues with the quality of video calls on Google hangouts? Zoom and even Teams seem better.

Google Hangouts ain’t great, but it works best with Chrome. It’s noticeable. Don’t know if that wasn’t obvious to anyone else.

Thank you! Will try Chrome next time.

Yes, google meet is the worst, Teams is better but kills my computer (goodbye multitasking), Zoom is where it’s at!

Zoom is the only one I trust. Last week a Teams call cut out on me right in the middle of presenting work, whereas I’ve never had a single Zoom call drop.

I haven't had a real problem with the quality on Google Hangouts/Meets, but Zoom is better. Google meet is just vastly more convenient because my org uses Gmail and G-cal for everything, making a calendar invite with an automatic call link is just so easy.

AD1 I'm aware, but practically everyone makes calendar invites here and Google Meet is already the standard for us. It's built into G-cal so nobody has to think about it or set anything up. At a big org, even for something as trivial as asking everyone to install a simple plugin, there's so much friction that it has to be worth the effort in getting everyone to migrate.

I think Google Meet is bad even with Chrome on a Windows device. It's not at clear as Zoom but the convenience is great.
