Video Conferencing

Tired of the ‘Poor Connection’ warnings in HouseParty or got more than 8 people who want to join….. then check out Google Hangouts. You just need a Google account, create a video conference meeting in your diary and email people a link or just start a call instantly and share a link. Nothing to install and it just works!

If you are a Team Manager, Coach, First Aider, Commitee Member or Key Volunteer then the Club can give you access to Google Meet which is the business/education version of Google Hangouts (you see Google Hangouts features if you’re not logged in with a Google Business/Education account). There’s not much difference except you can conference up to 250 users/friends – they don’t need any kind of Google account! Please complete this form to get an Old Ruts Google account – you also get an email address and 30GB of free storage. Conditions apply.

Zoom is also popular and it’s free. Just sign up for an account.
