I covered using the Jitsi Meet web app in 2017. Recently, someone asked about an easy way to video chat on mobile. Instead of WhatsApp, LINE, Kakao, etc., I recommended Jitsi. But I haven’t used the app yet. So when I was asked how to use it, I had to learn. It’s easy to use.


  1. Install and open Jitsi Meet by 8×8, Inc
  2. Type a room name
  3. Choose Video or Voice from the top
  4. Share room name with others via text, email, etc.
  5. Enter room
  6. Tinker with Settings and choose display
