Why do you use Zoom for conferences and not Jitsi?

Jitsi is free and open source, why you don’t use it instead of Zoom ?

It’s just team preferences as I think. I really don’t like Zoom and using Google Meet — it’s more convenient for Android users to join and non-Android users can join via web browser (not via app like Zoom).

Like with any software solution, it’s a decision between a open source and/or self hosted solution, or maybe a easier to use or more approachable solution. The most important reason most likely being time it takes to setup and manage (and scale) compared to the ready to go service. This is the reason most people are not self hosting their email (it’s a pain!)


Thanks! Your thought is quite profound
