I will start:
I've been with a company since 2015 and we have no office and all located in different states. We've used the same tools since the beginning to facilitate meetings, task planning & tracking, and the workplace with no problems.
We are using microsoft teams (very stable)
And skype (very laggy)
Had good experience with hangouts personally because my own products run on gsuite
Question: Has anyone used tandem?
I have not used it, but I have heard good things about https://tandem.chat/
Skype is laggy as hell, could you tell me, is zoom worth it indeed? All I hear is zoom, zoom, zoom. I've been self-isolated for just three days, so I'm unaware of lifehacks yet
Zoom, Whereby, Micorosft Teams or Google Meet are all good options. Give them a try.
MS teams - and although the UI is atrocious and the notifications are dire - the video conferencing is very excellent.
We are normally a normie company, but switched to remote for obvious reasons. We are using 3 primary communication tools right now:
