        What are some alternatives to Jitsi, Skype, and TeamViewer?
        Zoom

        WebRTC

        Kurento
        It is a WebRTC media server and a set of client APIs making simple the development of advanced video applications for WWW and smartphone platforms. Media Server features include group communications, transcoding and more.
        Jami

Its main goal is to provide a communication framework and end-user applications to make audio or video calls, send text messages and make generic data transfers. It makes this possible via multiple paradigms: a modern decentralized approach using a DHT to find peers or classical centralized SIP as a soft-phone.
        Google Meet
        It is the business-oriented version of Google's Hangouts platform and is suitable for businesses of all sizes. It allows users to dial in phone numbers to access meetings, thus enabling users with slow internet connection to call in.
