Collaborate more effectively with video chat

Glip’s free video chat lets you see the benefit of being able to instantly switch to online video meetings and screen sharing when text chat and file sharing is not enough.

Blending back-and-forth messaging with real-time, face-to-face communication builds stronger teams and allows them to get work done.

Free video chat, instantly available

With free video chat as an extension of team chat for the workplace, the coworkers you would like to connect with are available with a click of the mouse or a tap on the Glip app in your smartphone.

Launch world-class HD quality video chat

When everyone supporting a project or business process is gathered in the same team, all the status messages, questions and answers, files shared, and team tasks are at your fingertips. Yet whenever progress is stalled, or the next phase of work needs to be planned, there is nothing better than being able to connect in real time and communicate visually. Glip video chat is a world-class HD video conferencing experience with screen sharing that works on both desktop and mobile devices, backed by a solid network. Launch a one-on-one video call with a click or tap on any collaborator’s profile picture. Invite your whole team to join an impromptu online meeting, and Glip will “ring” each of their accounts.

Enjoy advanced capabilities beyond the usual video chat service

Glip video chat provides the invaluable ability to connect remote collaborators face-to-face, making it easy to plan and sort out misunderstandings. Meanwhile, screen sharing allows you to share any application or document on your desktop or your mobile device. Give demos, share interactive reports, and troubleshoot problems live. Glip Free accounts include 500 shared free video chat minutes. If you will be using Glip video chat regularly, upgrade to Glip Standard, RingCentral Meetings™, or RingCentral Office® (which also includes business phone service) for an expanded video meetings plan. Paid accounts also let you send calendar invites for scheduled meetings and provide dial-in numbers as an alternative for team members who are unable to join the video call or who prefer their phone to VoIP audio.

The best way to know if Glip video chat is right for your team is to try it—that’s what our free video chat offer is all about.


Free video and online messaging to reduce email clutter

Workers in the digital age can easily be overwhelmed by the variety of communications and collaboration resources available to them. Glip provides a single, unified team workspace that empowers you to work, communicate, and collaborate faster and more effectively than ever before.

Collaborative communications at your fingertips

RingCentral Glip is part of a movement toward modern messaging that works as well on smartphones as on computers and gives coworkers an alternative to email for team communications and collaboration. The category has many names, including team messaging, persistent team chat, and workstream communications and collaboration. RingCentral coined the term Collaborative Communications™ to describe its approach to making pervasive communication the foundation for more effective collaboration.

Video is a great way of cutting through the clutter. Click the camera icon from within any team conversation, and all team members will be invited to join the online meeting. Or click the profile picture of any team member to launch a one-on-one video chat.

Unlimited users, unlimited file sharing, and unlimited messaging with 500 free video chat minutes

Signing up for a Glip Free account is the easiest way to get started and includes 500 shared free video chat minutes. If you need more, upgrade to Glip Standard, RingCentral Meetings™, or RingCentral Office® (which also includes business phone service) for an expanded video meetings plan.

Most other features of Glip are unlimited, even for the free account—unlimited users, unlimited file sharing, unlimited messaging, and unlimited search. Use it for as long as you like, with as many people as you like, and as extensively as you like—all for no charge.

Meanwhile, Glip free chat means less email clutter. Efficiently collaborate with your teams using real-time messaging and shared calendars, focused by the business purpose of that conversation. Eliminate time wasted detangling long email threads.

The desire to escape email overload is a common story for products in this category, but there are other reasons people like Glip. Read on to learn about the key distinctions and why they matter.


Keeping team in sync with free video chat

Glip free chat revolves around team conversations for the workplace, which lets you structure communications and collaboration around projects and business processes. Invite all the coworkers and guest collaborators who belong in the conversation. Add more as needed. Join conversations that are relevant to your work and leave ones that aren’t.

A central hub for communication and team collaboration

While free chat messaging is important, Glip is also more than that. Glip users have one-click access to online video meetings, file sharing, task management, and more. Keeping teams in sync is one of the great virtues of team messaging as a hub for communication and collaboration. That is particularly true when team members must perform many interdependent tasks.

Even when you are invited into a conversation already in progress, you can catch up on what has been said before and see any relevant files and links that have been shared along the way. That’s much different from the confusion that follows being invited into the middle of a reply-all email thread. If you still have questions after reviewing the message history, Glip video chat is a great way of getting answers in real time.

A great task management tool for improving productivity

While teams have used chat and instant messaging tools for years for quick communication, modern team messaging tools like RingCentral Glip advance the state of the art. In Glip, routine tasks can be tracked in persistent team messaging conversations, and dedicated teams can be formed quickly to address specific challenges. Messages can be addressed to the whole team, but with @mentions to get the attention of specific team members who need to be alerted to an issue.

In addition, Glip messages can double as task assignments — making it clear who is responsible for completing any given task. Like other messages, tasks can include file or image attachments.

Glip has been applied to everything from routine business communications like scheduling meetings and organizing agendas to coordinating the activities of sales teams, software developers, and operations centers overseeing logistics or IT services. Managing complexity requires teamwork, and Glip helps teams work faster and smarter —particularly when they must in turn coordinate their activities with other specialized teams across an organization.
