While both TrueConf and Google Meet provide high quality video conferencing, TrueConf offers a self-hosted collaboration platform, which means that all user accounts, conference recordings and personal data is safely stored within your corporate network. In contrast, by agreeing to the privacy policies of cloud-based services, you are giving access to your confidential business information, ultimately putting your company at risk.

Client apps for any OS

Client apps for any OS

TrueConf offers reliable team collaboration across any device thanks to desktop and mobile client apps for every OS. Additionally, every TrueConf app is integrated with UC features, such as address book, presence statuses, and VoIP. While Google Meet offers in-browser meetings, its stability, performance and a set of features is limited by browser capabilities, which makes it a questionable choice for enterprise use.

Connected to meeting rooms

TrueConf Server provides native interoperability with video conferencing endpoints, VoIP and telephony, and cloud video conferencing services over SIP and H.323 protocols. In its turn, Google Meet requires purchasing an external third-party gateway to enable this option.
