Online Meeting App For More Than 100 Participants

Online meeting apps are a great way to keep in touch with your team. You can hold meetings from anywhere in the world, and you don’t even need to be at your desk!

The problem is, most online meeting apps are designed for small groups of people. If you need to have a meeting with more than 100 participants, the process can be frustrating. It’s hard to manage everyone’s needs and interests, and it’s nearly impossible to get everyone on board with decisions or solutions.

That’s why we created [product name]. With this app, you can hold online meetings with up to 1,000 participants—and they’ll all be able to see each other as well as hear you clearly over their own phone speakers or headphones.

This is perfect for large teams who want to get together remotely but still have face-to-face interactions during their meetings. And if there are times when only one person needs to speak up, that person can share the screen so everyone else can see what he or she is talking about.
