With Meet you can set up and run video conferences, called Meets. You can invite specific people, or you can publish invitations on social media or your web site.
We don't think so! All you need is a web cam and your web browser - no need to download complicated software or setup. We do require an app on phones, but we do that to ensure that you have the very best experience - and everything interoperates seamlessly.
Want to host your own Meet? Just click Start a new Meet. You can give your Meet a name, or you can accept the default. If you like you can charge people to join in.
If you're the host you'll see a blue Invite People button on the top bar. Click that to get an invite link.
Just click Join a Meet and enter the last 6 letters and numbers from the invite link (the bit after the ?). Next time, you can just click on it and we'll do the typing for you!
There are 2 views available:

The web version only requires your camera and microphone. The Jitsi app also requests permissions for your calendar - this lets it integrate with appointments, although Meet does not currently support this feature.
Meet uses a technology called Web RTC which requires a newer web browser.
Please ensure you're using an up to date version of Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Edge for best results.
If you're having problems joining on mobile, please reload the web page and try again. We use tokens with a limited lifetime to grant access to the Meet and sometimes - especially if you have to install the app too - the process can go over the lifetime. Reloading the page will issue a new token and everything should work.
