Adjust Room Size

With appear.in PRO and Business, you can pick your room size based on the number of meeting attendees. This isn't just an arbitrary cap on how many people can join the room; it actually changes the technology supporting the meeting. Our Small rooms (1-4 participants) use a peer-to-peer connection to send/receive audio and video streams. With the Large rooms (5-12 participants) a central server helps package up the video and data streams, delivers them to each participant so connections don't get overloaded between individuals.

Forget to make your room bigger for a meeting? No worries! Our system will detect if your room is too small as more users join. We'll let you know and refresh the room for you! 

Note

Participants joining a meeting in a PRO room don't need to be PRO subscribers, or even registered users. This way you can invite teammates, customers, and business partners as needed to your meetings without making them sign up for anything!
