Jitsi Meet: free group video calls with no time limit

Jitsi Meet allows video calls without time limits or participants

For those who do not like video calls with time limits or participants, Jitsi Meet is a highly recommended option. This video calling application works under an open source license, it is free for all types of users and by not putting restrictions on the number of participants or the duration of an online meeting it adds a valuable feature: users do not need to have an account on the platform or any other with which to identify to start a video call.
