Note: The following article has nothing to do with genealogy, DNA, or any of the other topics normally found in this newsletter. If you are looking for genealogy and similar articles, you might want to skip this one. However, this article references a recent article in ZDNet that I think all computer owners should read.

Zoom works great for conference calls, but you’re limited to 100 people and just 40 minutes in the free version. This isn’t always ideal, especially for longer meetings. Luckily, there are a variety of Zoom alternatives that don’t have as many restrictions in their free versions. Plus, some don’t even require people calling in to have an account.

The alternatives include: Skype, Jitsi Meet, Facebook Messenger Rooms, RingCentral Video Pro, FreeConferenceCall, Lark, Butter, Discord, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and Zoho Meeting.
