Around is video collaboration reimagined for the remote-first era, with lean, elegant design and proprietary technology perfect for 1:1s, team syncs, and on-the-fly sessions.
We recommend using Around for collaboration sessions with a few other participants. For example, people have used Around when editing documents together, conducting design sessions, and doing code reviews. You can see more examples of how people are utilizing Around here.
Here are the minimum requirements in order to download Around:
For the web app, we support Google Chrome.
Yes. Just share the link to your room and they can join via our web app (we support Google Chrome).
The web app has limited functionality compared to our native apps. Most notably, it does not have our Floating Mode, which allows for the video interface to sit on top of your applications, letting participants collaborate without losing visual contact.
If you’re going to be using Around on a regular basis, we recommend using the Mac or Windows app, while guests who don’t have Around installed can join via our web app.
Our current limit is 30 participants in a meeting.

With EchoTerminator, you and your team can easily collaborate in the same space on your individual computers; our one-of-a-kind signal processing engine (patent pending) allows multiple laptop microphones and speakers stay enabled in the same room without echo or feedback.
Sophisticated ultrasonic signaling, synchronization, latency correction, and voice proximity algorithms aided by AI normalize microphone quality, measure a complex set of acoustic properties, and mark every audio frame with robust metadata to provide the best possible audio experience.
