Hello,
I require a software for hosting online meetings which supports voice conversation. So, I would like someone to find the best software that can be used to undertake such meeting. The following may be taken as the requirements:

1. Should support several computers to be online at the same time.
2. Should run on any operating systems (should atleast run on these : Windows XP Professional/Office and Windows Vista)
3. Voice conversation is a must.

Thanks in advance. I am waiting for the reply.

Hi -
I would have thought that Skype was the preferred app for what you are looking for -
You can video chat 1 on 1 free (even international), but other plans do exist - Their Support Forum is very good at helping you with free advice -
Premium Costs are about $5 per month at the moment, but are subject to change -

Is this the type of program you are looking for, or have you used Skype and not been satisfied with it ??

Regards -

I can tell you that your two requirements of 'several computers' and 'free' pretty much cancel each other out. I don't know of a decent multi-participant meeting service for free. If there is one, I'm not aware of it and I have been doing online meetings for a few years.

@ Animal -

The "Free" hosting on the link comes whith only one rider from AnyMeeting (the hoster of the software) -

"AnyMeeting" provides its services at no cost because the software is supported by advertising.
Advertisements appear in a non-intrusive way during your meetings and in the account management tools, are high-quality, and generally targeted to business professionals.

The advertising is very small, and will not interupt a conversation, or detract "badly" from your meetings.
I tested this locally with 3 active accounts, and found it, on a personal level, to be suitable for "most" applications that want the requested Free + Multi-Participent feature.

Their version of "suitable" would need to be tested by the persons using the software and their reaction to the "small / subtle" advertising included.

Free Skype is normally used on my Win7 laptop, and has been good for my 1 on 1 chats.

You may use various online web conferencing services such as webex.com, gomeetnow.com, gotomeeting.com etc. Alternatively, you may also consider to have on premise web conferencing appliance such as rhubcom.com.

Teamviewer works the best and its free.
Voice communication is done through builtin mic and speaker of the computers.

It also offers the choice to use landlines for the conference, which costs a few cents per minute.
