I’m the owner of my business, so I use this app to manage and train my team.
When I started my online writing business, I knew I needed an app that would allow me to communicate clearly with my team members in more ways that just email or Skype. I needed something that offered more options, and something that everyone could use with ease. That’s when I found Blizz. This app is great for doing online business meetings, and keeping in touch with my team members. Everyone has an easy time using it with its simple setup. The HQ video calling comes in handy a lot. Unlike other apps I’ve tried, this one works great with both Android and iPhone, which is really important when you have a big team of people that use different phones. Not only this, but it can be used on a computer or other devices as well.
This app has saved me a lot of money and hassle since I started using it for my startup business. I don’t have to worry about coming up with a meeting place for every meeting or that any other app will let me down.
I don’t like that you can’t add any contacts unless the person first has their Blizz app account set up, but this wasn’t a huge problem.
- I can connect with multiple people even with the free version.
- Other apps often overwhelm new users with the multitude of features. In the end you don’t become more efficient because it’s too complicated to use. Blizz is very basic as a simple communications tool and it’s not confusing.
- The app doesn’t take up much space on my SmartPhone so I don’t feel bad asking others to download it too.
- The video quality is impressive in terms of color and clarity.
- It’s so easy to record audio or video so I don’t even take notes of meetings anymore.
- It syncs across all my devices.
- I work mostly on my SmartPhone but the mobile version doesn’t show all the menu options available on my computer.
- The mobile version didn’t show any tutorials so I’m not sure if I’m missing out on any features.
- Not many people use this yet so I have to ask new clients or team members to download it first.
- There is a slight delay on audio.
- I only use Gmail and I still need to figure out how to send invitations from that platform.
Looks great, very easy to use and works seamlessly across all kinds of devices.
- Really intuitive layout and design. I skipped the tutorial and help sections and had absolutely no problem figuring out all the features.
- Simple interface. The interface isn't cluttered with unnecessary/confusing buttons, but still has just about every feature that you could realistically need from video conferencing software.
- Links up seamlessly with other participants on mobile devices, different platforms (e.g. Mac/PC/Android), and people on the phone. Very useful for a scattered team and cross-site collaborations.
- Secured connection, so you can confidently share sensitive data.
- Great live text chat feature for when you don't want to interrupt someone else's flow.
- Ability to add up to 300 participants to a meeting. Not something that I or the vast majority of users would ever realistically exceed.
- It's a relatively new product, so the developers may have to iron out some kinks as time goes on (although none are obvious to me at this stage).
- Quite a distinct feel to other more established software of this kind. While I think it's very easy to get your head around, the general interface may confuse some/not be to everybody's tastes.
- There could be something like an in-depth interactive tutorial to exhibit all of the less-obvious features. Again, this isn't something that I needed, but it could feasibly help some users.
Blizz has changed our experience of meetings, remote collaboration, technical and customer support. Overall, its a great solution!
1. My team relies on Blizz by TeamViewer for video conferencing and remote support solutions mainly because of its ease of use and multi-platform support on PC and mobile.
2. The audio and video quality remain stable under varying internet speeds; this way, our field technicians can collaboratively tackle problems even when in remote areas.
3. The session recording feature comes in handy when I need to review the details of a meeting; it also cancels out the need of taking notes during meeting
4. The user interface is quite easy to navigate; everyone gets used to it almost immediately.
5. The web version of Blizz makes it easy to deal with the sense of urgency that comes with some video conferencing sessions. Especially when a colleague has to join a meeting from another person's device (e.g. at a cafe).
6. The PC and mobile apps are lightweight and easy to install.
7. The selective mute/unmute feature makes it easy to tune out distractions from other participants when one presenter is speaking.
Sometimes, I have to manually activate the camera feature on the mobile app after a reconnection but this does not affect the audio. Older browsers have a difficult time using the web client, so you have to update your browser to the newest version if possible.
Blizz has one of the best user interfaces I've ever come across from team collaboration software. Its intuitive design enables people to jump in and get started without needing any previous training.
- Blizz has one of the best user interfaces I've ever come across from team collaboration software. Its intuitive design enables people to jump in and get started without needing any previous training.
- I found that it was very easy to set up a meeting on the fly, scheduling a meeting in the future or even just initiating or responding to a chat conversation.
- There is the option to use the mobile and desktop application, making it easy to communicate with clients from anywhere in the world
- This product is reliable and stable.
- When initiating a chat conversation with someone who is not on my contacts list, I simply entered an email address of someone who does not have a Blizz account. Unfortunately, no feedback or error message was output on screen. I did expect an error message to be shown on-screen to let me know that the user does not have Blizz account, rather than no feedback at all.
We as a team all work remotely and found this app very easy to get to setup and use. It has some great features, most of which we use all the time.
I found Blizz very easy and intuitive to use, as did my colleagues. We literally got connected in seconds and started our meeting. You don’t need to register, and it includes all the functions we needed in one app like chat, video conferencing, conference recording, meeting, file sharing and screen sharing.
It's not so well known yet, but I assume that will change over time.
This is a solid Web conferencing solution with some nice features other products do not have. For example, in some meetings there is bad audio because some participants obviously cannot figure out which audio device they are currently using (e.g. a Webcam microphone). Blizz has some nice feature that triggers a device selection dialog when a new device is added (or removed), so it will be almost impossible for a user to select a wrong device. Related to that, Blizz also uses better device names: The strange Realtek high definition audio is simply called Soundcard, and that is what it is, and everybody can understand it. Another feature I like better than in Zoom is the speaking indicator. Zoom only has two states speaking/non-speaking. In Blizz there is an indicator with several levels; this makes it much easier to find out which participant is producing unwanted noise, so that he can be muted.
I really miss a volume slider in the GUI; it is bit tricky and slow to find it somewhere in the options. Skype, for example, has one. Also, there is no sorting of the participants with respect to their importance (active speakers).
I am a busy person, and I am always on the lookout for something to make my everyday experience easier. Right now me and my team are working remotely, so we were spending a lot of time Skyping and trying to convey our ideas through a conference. So far the screen sharing has been working okay for us, but then I discovered Blizz and realized that our meetings can be much better.
The feature I absolutely loved was the possibility to share a presentation. Now I feel like I can explain myself much clearer, since I am able to show all the participants of the conference what I have been working on at the moment and how I am progressing.
Not that many cons according to my experience, but there's one thing: the whiteboarding feature needs to come back, it was very useful.
Works well for large group meetings and provides useful tools for efficient collaborative work. End-to-end session encryption, unique meeting ID for each user, easy and fast setup and registration, available on Android and IOS, Mac and PC, Outlook integration
Some UI improvements are necessary.You can sense that the product is still in development/introduction stages, but has the potential of getting bigger
Right off the bat, it has a super user-friendly and intuitive interface. And despite its simplicity, it still packs a punch of various offerings:
- Multiple features (i.e. screen sharing, meeting scheduling, audio/video options).
- Several communication methods (chat, video) all working without a hitch.
- And compatibility across various devices as well
From my experience, the connectivity and quality across devices is top notch, which honestly might be the best part. Ideal for remote or international teams trying to stay in sync.
It’s relatively new in an industry with some well-established names, so some users may be hesitant to give it a go.
But as for the product itself - no complaints.
Better communication means better business relationships, which in turn allows me to grow my brand with a strong support base.
An easy-to-use tool for communicating with anyone, from team members and associates to potential clients and business partners.
-Blizz provides an effective and secure live conferencing interface with numerous features, including high-definition video and audio, screen sharing, meeting schedule options, recording, and WebClient. Registration is not required to participate in a Blizz conversation, and the program touts strong security with Teamviewer technology for secure encryption of every exchange.
-The program's design makes it easy for anyone to quickly figure out how Blizz works.
-Mastering the program takes very little time, allowing users to get to work faster without having to work through complicated procedures just to contact someone.
-The current lack of name recognition might make new users wary of trying the program, but they would be doing themselves a disservice by not taking advantage of Blizz's offerings.
Simplicity is key and Blizz certainly knows how to maintain a level of simplicity without compromising its quality or feature design. Although I come from a background in I.T., I find unnecessary complexity in systems to be incredibly daunting.
I like that setting up meetings and scheduling them into the future is very easy with Blizz and can be linked to Outlook.
The product is also very reliable and stable and I like that I can make use of both the desktop and mobile application simultaneously.
There is no white-boarding feature in Blizz any longer. It was very useful, I hope they bring it back.
better meeting experience, one stop shop for everything you need when conducting a meeting.
Anyone can use it, installation is easy and with the recent release even better, as clients do not need to install it on their devices - especially in large companies that was often a security issue and made meetings difficult. I like that it offers all functions in one tool: chat, meeting, video-conferencing, conference recording, screen sharing, file sharing.
I would like for it to have a translation system included, would make meetings across language barriers much easier.
The app took very little time to be installed on my PC, which is excellent. It also doesn't take much space. Besides from that, the app is pretty straightforward and very easy to use. You learn everything you need to know within seconds. Also, the interface is quite user friendly.
Well, it could use more interesting features. The design isn't bad but I feel it could be much more appealing.
For me, one of the best things about Blizz is that it offers a very secure environment as it has data encryption allowing only the needed parties to have a look at what is being shared. I can discuss anything with my team without the worry of information leakage. Audio and video quality are great and the app remains stable even when my network is bad.
On my personal laptop, the OS is Linux. Blizz doesn't work on it, and though I can use the webclient, I would appreciate it if it was available on client too.
The greatest advantage is the fast and simple cooperation between customers or employees.
I've tried TeamViewer Blizz for my newly founded company. I am fairly impressed by this new software made by TeamViewer especially due to low installation effort. If you have questions concerning usage or known issues you can join the Blizz community. Another feature that I liked is the Outlook Plug-in that shows all contacts in the Blizz application which greatly improves clarity. The mobile application helps field service technicians to communicate simply, yet effectively, with colleagues and customers alike. As a bonus, the software features a safe connection protecting information and data exchanged in a meeting. Blizz's secure connection is also used by TeamViewer remote sessions. The ability to connect to regular phone numbers is also a handy asset.
Used blizz as a back up solution from another meeting and conferencing tool in the company. As much as we grow with demand on prospects and customer for remote support and demo sessions we are evaluating some other tools that can work as much as expected from the mainly used platform in the business. Blizz is good
It does what it has to in order to perform meetings and video conferences
Good audio quality on stream
Good arrangement in crowd meetings
Great Capabilities for remote support sessions
It works with the same credential from Teamviewer
Interface is not simple
Aged GUI, looks like a software from 2008-09
Not full screen support while presenting or screen sharing
Notch up and down the screen
Not friendly for slow connections
Computer resources in higher demand than other similar solutions
We have been using the company plan of Blizz as we often need more than 25 participants to be on the call so that plan works great for us. It's a user-friendly software, with high-quality video and screen sharing.
I'm used to seeing previews of messages on my locked iPhone but Blizz only sends you notifications with a new message displayed. Must be for TeamViewer security reasons but I would still like to have the option.
o Extremely easy to use, I loaded the software and was able to use it without watching any tutorial videos
o I haven't experienced any problems with cross-platform collaboration. Works equally as well with iOS as Windows
o Live chat feature works well.
o The web application requires an updated browser, which can be inconvenient in some cases
o High bandwidth usage causes delay on slower internet connections.
I really like the Outlook integration, makes scheduling very convenient.
The chat feature is simple and easy to use. The software in general is just very well made and stable.
High CPU usage slows down my computer sometimes when sharing my screen and using multiple applications
The layout is very easy to use. It has a nice interface without any clutter or unnecessary options, just the essential.
Blizz consumes a lot of CPU usage that really affects performance. Hopefully this can be improved in the future.
Easy to use and allows for great interaction with peers for meeting. free. worked great for several online conferences I had.
not as many features as some of the other programs I have used but its great if you are just looking for meetings.
This new app for video conferencing and bringing work teams has a desktop and mobile app and has interesting features to discover.
In the beginning it costs a little to get used to this new tools if one usually uses other classic alternatives like Skype.
