Why choose Zoom or Element?
Both platforms offer free versions and add-ons, but Zoom has roles management and graphic personalization while Element does not. Zoom also has more features such as workspace and user activity, 1-1 video calls, group video calls, whiteboarding, screen sharing, breakout rooms, recording, participant permissions, and subtitles & translations. However, Element has multiple workspaces and offers training webinars while Zoom does not. Both platforms have dedicated customer support and integrations/API, but Element also has a mobile app. Overall, Zoom is more feature-rich but more expensive, while Element offers a more affordable option with fewer but still useful features.
