(For those who haven’t read the other thread, I’m staying with family temporarily as the pandemic interrupted my move to another province and they don’t see any value in upgrading their Internet - and I don’t blame them, they’re in their 70s and just use it to check email.)
I've used Teams/Zoom/Google Meet lately..or even FaceTime or WhatsApp meet.

Is Teams basically the professional version of Skype..which seems to have been left in the dust lately.

I was on a Teams meeting lately and I turned off my camera as I didn't want one person to see my reaction to them everytime they spoke
