Which video chat apps do you typically use? Do they work well for you, and do you enjoy using them?

I don't normally do video chats with people at all, but being at home constantly has made me try out a couple. I have used Google Duo, Google Hangouts, and Zoom. Like maybe 99% of college students, I have been using Zoom for classes, but I have also used it to join meetings/discussions about different things.

Google Duo was OK for me when I used it, but Google Hangouts and Zoom have worked pretty well, especially considering that my internet isn't as good on some days. I've enjoyed using both apps especially since Zoom has a chat function that my professors have encouraged us students to use!

I haven't really used video chat since Skype was the popular one... The closest i get is screen sharing on discord, which is great for me because i honestly don't like going on camera anyways. People tend to pay more attention when they can only hear your voice sometimes... obviously it depends on the person though i suppose. +

Discord I guess. I rarely video chat to begin with but it's on there if I do. Maybe Snapchat on a rare occasion. I don't really use Snap to talk to friends IRL and only a select few online know what I look like and even fewer of those have me added on Snap. I've only resorted to that when I'm doing something and I can't really bring my laptop with me like cooking.

But yeah most frequently on Discord since most video calls I'm in involve multiple people. I think I've only had 1 on 1 video calls with one person in the last 2 or 3 years.

I don't really care for video chatting since I don't see a need to do so unless you really need to see the other person, when I do have to, it's usually through a Facebook call. Sometimes I use Skype but that's about it.

sonicmcmuffin : I have forgotten that Skype existed XD

I usually don't like going on camera either. Even when I record videos of myself playing video games, I don't like showing my face. It was tough to go through college classes on Zoom when I could see my every move the whole time.

cid789 : Wow, nice! I don't remember much about what Google Duo was like.

Furret : Yeah I don't video chat often either now that I'm done with classes. I've always been happy with regular phone calls.

zanderlex : I'm the same way. I don't like video chatting unless it's much better to see the other person while we're talking. Usually my phone calls aren't that serious so it doesn't really matter

I mainly use skype for when I have online language classes and have some experience with google hangouts. I think I've used the video chat on discord and snapchat a handful of times, though I mainly use those for text chat and sending images.

Outside of that, I used adobe connect when I was taking a long distance course during my first university semester. I would not recommend it as visually it looks pretty archaic compared to zoom (which ironically I've yet to use).

Pacman+Mariofan : It's private 1 on 1 lessons so it wouldn't make as much sense to use something like Zoom. I think Adobe Connect is sort of like a predecessor to Zoom, as I originally had those classes 2 years ago and I don't Zoom was widely used at the time. Even though it still exists and is used, the latter has sort of taken over in terms of popularity.

For school we exclusively use Zoom. My professors last semester, and likely the upcoming semester, really don't like anything else and I believe my university is integrated/partnered with Zoom somehow anyway.

For personal use I use Discord. It's not at all *meant* for video chatting, but the point being that I rarely video chat for personal use anyway. Discord accomplishes what I need, so may as well just use an app I already have anyway since I'm so infrequent with video chatting specifically.

I don't really do video chat type stuff, but I guess the occasional voice chat with friends on discord is the next closest thing. Never used Snapchat or Skype since I'm not a fan of social media or doing video calls lol. That's just far out of my comfort zone.

Now that I started school up again and it's online only, I was forced to use Zoom for the first time and I hate it. I just find it to be too difficult at times, sometimes if I want to turn my camera on mid-call I have to restart the app which would result in a long wait to get back in until the teacher realizes I'm trying to get in. Other times I've seen connections getting bad with large classes on at once when screen sharing and I hate it.

I used to use Skype way back in the day but anymore it's just Discord though I don't go on camera all that often though I do enjoy it on the rare occasion it makes the conversation feel more human I guess when your looking at someone instead of just talking while doing other things at least that's how I feel about it.
