What is it
Gatheround is a video meeting application. We use it to facilitate 1:1 screen random interactions at some social online gatherings.
How we like it
It's great to facilitate random matches and display question prompts but the experience is not optimum as it can get glitchy and the group interactions lack a certain vibe we had on Zoom.
How it works
Gatheround is made to work straight in the browser on your phone or computer - no downloads needed. You will need to log in with a Google Account (don't worry, your name or any other information you have shared with Google won't be displayed to other participants on Gatheround).
💻 To avoid glitches and enjoy a bigger screen for the tiled view, we recommend to use your computer with Chrome. If you want to use your phone, we recommend the app.
👩⚕️ If you encounter a technical glitch, the solution that solves 80% of the problems is to open the link in private browsing mode (it's called 'Incognito Window' on Chrome).
