Video Conferencing App Reviews

Goals

To provide a competitive landscape analysis of video conferencing apps featuring security, privacy, and control concerns. Specifically, we will be focusing on the following apps: Zoom, Google Hangouts/Google Duo/Google Meet, Apple, FaceTime, Skype, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Teams, Facebook Messenger, Facebook Portal, WhatsApp, Houseparty, Signal, Discord, Jitsi (open source), BlueJeans, Doxy.me, and Cisco Webex.

Early Findings

  • Here is the link to the spreadsheet featuring the competitive landscape analysis of the selected video conferencing apps.
  • We have completed columns B-C of the attached spreadsheet with the required information.
  • All of the selected video conferencing apps incorporate some level of encryption into their apps except Facebook and Facebook Messenger. Facebook is yet to incorporate end-to-end encryption in all of its services but has publicly announced its intention to do so.
