Price| $0| $35/month| $19/month|
Operating System| Windows| All| All|
Features| | | |
Application Sharing| Yes| Yes| Yes|
Audio| Yes| Yes| Yes|
Desktop Sharing| Yes| Yes| Yes|
File Transfer| Yes| Yes| No|
Schedule Meetings| Yes| Yes| Yes|
Schedule Recurring Meetings| No| Yes| No|
Encryption| Yes| Yes| Yes|
User Authentication| Yes| Yes| No|
One Time Password| No| Yes| Yes|
Meeting Recording/Playback| yes| Yes| Yes|
Participant Reporting| no| yes| yes|
