Features: More Than Basic
The most logical way to start the GoToMeeting review is to describe the app’s features. At its core, GoToMeeting is a standard video conference app, but it also has lots of new features. First of all, to join or host a conference in GoToMeetings you do not have to create an account or sign in.
The second great feature of this app is that you can easily demonstrate your screen or see the demonstrated screen of your conference mates.
There are also several additional features in GoToMeetings: with this app you can hand off presentation controls to other participants, receive alerts before the start of the meetings and many more.
Design, interface & usability: Average Usability
In terms of the user interface design, GoToMeeting is a pretty average app. It’s user interface corresponds to modern standards: there are several sections, each responsible for different features. However, the navigation is not really comfortable as the buttons are not fixed at the bottom.
Inside the calls, things get better: the buttons are available as an overlay. Each of them is easily accessible, and it is comfortable enough to switch between the shared content in the conference.
Platforms & Requirements: Pretty Light
As for the requirements, GoToMeeting has great compatibility, and the app’s requirements for the systems are rather low. It is necessary to have Android 5.0 or later and iOS 11 or later.
The app also does not utilize much data, so it is pretty comfortable to use it on the go, without having to worry about the data plans.
To sum up, GoToMeeting is a decent app for video conferences. It is free to download, you can create and host conferences without making an account, and there are lots of additional features. The only significant drawback of the app is its interface: it is not very user-friendly. The app might be a great choice to use on the go as it has a data-saving mode built-in.
