๐Ÿค” How It Works

Every Project in Taskade is a self-contained collaboration hub with an integrated chat window. All team members invited to that Project can join an existing video conference or start their own call without a time limit.

Our video call feature is optimized for smaller groups; best used for meetings of up to 20 people. Use it for quick catch-ups around projects!

๐Ÿ’ก Note: Video conferencing in Taskade is free and there is no limit on the number of participants. If you want to invite participants who don't have a Taskade account, visit ๐Ÿ“ Share a Project / Add Collaborators.
