But millions are still using it. I'm guilty too.

I haven't used Zoom but I do use Viber as an alternative to Skype. It is free (love that word!).

The only downside that I have found with Viber is that they constantly try to sell 'stickers' but I suppose that they have to (try to) make money somehow.

I use: Go to Meeting, Skype, Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams (which is now free and very cool), Webex, and probably a few others, but never have tried Zoom (at least not yet).

I also have to use 'Go to Meeting' for some conferences, but found that Zoom does a far superior job of maintaining good picture quality. I have slow DSL here so anything that makes my picture and sound clearer is a plus.

I haven't used any of that stuff :pull: ..guess that means I'm not much of a communicater, and that once upon a time was my business. This stuff is happening so fast I need a Ferrari to keep up with everything. Oh well where is Teddy Roosevelt when you need him, huh?

I don't live in Nevada, but I know some of the courts there use "Go to Meeting." I had to help someone set up their laptop for a court hearing with the judge. Seemed easy enough.

Be aware that the free version of Microsoft Teams is available only to those without a paid commercial Office 365 subscription.

If you have Office 365 Teams comes as part of that at no extra cost Sidd, so still free in a way :)
