Drew (Shouting Into The Void)
I have been the biggest jitsi advocate for the past 3 years and have used it for everything from personal calls to big meetups, to business communication. Now im sorry to say the app is basically unusable. The new moderator requirements mean that I have to login, and jitsi cannot communicate with my (Firefox) browser. Ive tried everything but I might have to throw in the towel, the ease of use has been diluted so much it makes it hard to recommend.

The moderator requirement makes this useless to me. I loved it and am very disappointed. I used 2 3-letter meeting rooms for years without passwords. Only had other people in my room once and they left immediately. Moderation was not a problem that needed solving and there is no longer a killer feature that sets Jitsi apart. I'd like to highlight the burden this puts on older adults. I used this with my parents because it was so accessible to them - not having to deal with accounts.

I really enjoy this app since Hangouts is gone. It's really important to us to be able to have multiple people screen sharing at once. I only have one real issue. Sometimes when I hang up to leave the call, it'll keep repeatedly adding me back to the call. Hanging up doesn't work and closing all apps doesn't work. It's really frustrating because I would like to leave the call as soon as I hit the hang up button.
