Howspace integrates with video conferencing software Whereby

Howspace is an AI-powered digital collaboration company that facilitates workshops, events, learning programmes and interactive journeys of change initiatives.

Last week Howspace announced the launch of HowspaceLive, a fully integrated conference tool added to its communication platform. The addition of video calls to this tool is powered by video conferencing tool Whereby, a leading digital conference provider. This video addition works to fill a fundamental missing video gap – adding to Howspace’s capacities of digital chats, bookings and documents. This allows for everything an office requires to be brought together into one all-encompassing platform.

Whereby, first established in 2013, is a digital conferencing tool that enables teams of up to 50 to meet virtually via video call. Unique features of the software include direct integration with Google Docs, Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar and YouTube, as well as custom features including personalised URL links and branded backgrounds.

Whereby’s software has allowed for HowspaceLive to enable instant connection between workspace users. Team members can screen share, record meetings, and edit documents on a collaborative and visual video platform. Adding video call features requires little to no hassle at all from companies, with a simple creation of a custom URL link that can be dragged and dropped. This allows for seamless real-time communication.

HowspaceLive users can now discuss a topic with their peers, progress with it using the tools of digital chats and documents provided by the platform, and then discuss this via video chat which was not possible before. Those who join at a later point can use Whereby’s recording feature by downloading the meeting room and catching up with what was missed.

With no registration details, login credentials or additional apps required for this collaboration, Whereby has assisted HowspaceLive in fulfilling hassle-free productive virtual workplaces.

Both HowspaceLive and Whereby work in any supported browsers. No download or app is required.

Some crucial things to take from HowspaceLive’s integration with Whereby:

  • Users can join videos of up to 50 peers
  • No installations or apps are required to join video calls
  • Privacy features across all forms of the platform are GDPR compliant
  • Live video calls can be streamed and downloaded once finished, and information added to after the stream has finished
