The whole world has been pretty shaky these days and there are still a lot of work video conferences going on. And we want to introduce you to a truly powerful and open-source alternative like Jitsi Meet. Thanks to Jitisi you can do Video Conference on Linux easily.
Jisti Meet is a pretty valid alternative to Google Hangouts, but in this case, we’re talking about a completely open-source alternative. On the other hand, it’s free and even though it’s not, it offers some advantages that we could consider premium like HD Audio support. Everything 100% encrypted.
In these times in which the formal work has been threatened, some companies have found in Jitsi a quality tool. Especially because it does not require the creation of an account and because it can be installed on your server.
Some features of Jitsi Meet are as follows:
- Share your desktop, presentations, and more.
- Invite users to a conference via a simple, custom URL.
- Edit documents together using Etherpad.
- Pick fun meeting URLs for every meeting.
- Trade messages and emojis while you video conference, with integrated chat.
Again, all this for free, open-source, and encrypted conversations. So, technologically it’s pretty competent.

What’s most surprising about Jitsi is the simple way he uses it. Just click on this link.
There you will have to choose a conference name. Something like an identifier and not a description.
By choosing it and giving permission to the web browser to use the microphone and webcam. And that’s it.
Now, how do other peoples join our conference? Well below, you will see an information button where you can specify a password and there will be a link you can share. It’s that simple.
It couldn’t be easier from there.
So now we have an Open Source alternative to make our video calls easily and safely.
