Differences between Jitsi Meet and 8x8 video conferences

Hi everybody, I looked for an answer a lot over the internet but I can’t find a complete answer.

What are the differences between Jitsi and 8x8?

Up to now, these are the only things I know:

  • In 2018 Jitsi was acquired by 8x8
  • New features are developed in Jitsi as a test for 8x8, their user interface and features are almost identical
  • Jitsi Meet is Open Source (along with all of its services), what about 8x8 services?

The main point I can’t understand is: why should I choose one over the other? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each one of the two?

I hope answers can be useful for everybody.
Thanks a lot, have a nice day!

  1. 8x8 has a desktop client & jitsi doesnt
  2. 8x8 is targeted more towards paid users. initially it seems to be free, hence you might get better support

Differences aside, why are they separate to begin with?
