Jitsi seems excellent within its limited functionality.  It's what Signal's video calling ought to be [The right aspect ratio - Ed], and works admirably well for one-to-one calls.  Zoom seems to have the edge when you've got lots of people and need to worry about keeping the interpreter on screen, or screen share or whatever.  The lack of a proper desktop app is irksome.

ETA: Jitsi appears to have developed a screen sharing feature since I last looked.  Will have to investigate that...

It has?

I use it on a dedicated android device. So never had need for that.

@barakta, you can pop out the chat from the main interface
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Indeed. Our work implementation did that automagically.

In a chat the other day one of the medics replied to a message with a quote.

The resulted in a number of messages from the IT side asking "how'd you do that"

Turns out it's only in the Android client at present and is backlogged for the windows one.

You can but it doesn't behave well as a popped out window either and is annoying like the whole teams interfacey thing which has loads of barely used crap wasting screen space while hiding useful stuff. Possibly cos I have the text too zoomed cos I have no choice of fonts or colours (which i'd like in Zoom too tbh).

I've yet to experience the people being cropped in meetings thing. Something to look forward to.
