How many people can be in a room at the same time?
The number of participants you can have in a room depends on which plan you have with appear.in.
The FREE Plan supports up to 4 participants at a time, in Normal mode. We do not support more connections with this plan because of browser and bandwidth limitations which gives a poor experience with 4+ people.
If you need support for larger calls, you can upgrade to appear.in PRO which enables you to use Group mode with up to 12 participants.
Check out all the differences between the Standard and PRO plan on our Pricing page.
The FREE Plan is using Normal mode which is currently sending video peer-to-peer (P2P). This means that participants send audio and video directly to each other, and in call with many participants, this can be a large strain on your network and CPU. People with poor network conditions or older/less powerful devices may experience problems in calls with many participants. If you have a network cable available, plugging that in can help.
