Jitsi Meet is a beta feature that we've recently launched within Nectir. It is an encrypted, open-source, free-to-use video chat service that allows up to 75 people within a single call (optimal amount is around 35 for best quality).

Using Jitsi will allow you to instantly send a link to a video chat within your channel. The link takes everyone to a video chat room that is ongoing and needs no specific host.

Get a Jitsi video chat link:

  1. Within the message bar in your channel, type "/jitsi" and press enter.

  2. When you send this message, it will automatically create a link to your video call, which anyone can join (you can set a password within the call itself).
