Google Meetings or Webex?


#1

The other Istio working groups use Google video meetings. I cannot host Google video meetings from my personal Google account. I can host meetings using webex.com (requires browser plug-in). Is everyone OK with webex.com?


#2

Why not? I can’t use any of the browser plugins I have used so far (bluejeans, google meet, and some other one I forget). Might as well try webex. :-/


#3

I would prefer Google meet (no install required) but webex is fine also.


#4

Either works for me. :wink:


#5

Happy to see Webex, Zoom or BlueJeans. Hangouts/Meet sets my CPU on fire.


#6

I would prefer webex

jmazzitelli,

I’m not sure if you have flashbacks from the old days of webex that were based upon the need to run in a java environment. This was especially painful on Linux as webex only worked with 32 bit versions of the kernel/runtime.

The current webex implementationi works fine on Linux, although there is a lack of screen sharing functionality with the HTML5 based implementation (or was, I haven’t checked lately). I’ve used modern webex with modern chrome (2018+ builds) without issue.

Still I think it would be good that all working groups standardize on tools.

Ed,

Is it possible you can ping some nice google folks to set you up with a meet account?

Cheers
