ACI LIVE is an online audio and web conferencing platform. People use it to make phone calls or to participate in video conference meetings.
You don’t need a paid subscription to start using ACI LIVE. In fact, if someone else sets up the ACI LIVE Meeting and invites you, all you need to do is follow the instructions in the email invitation to start using ACI LIVE. You’ll need to click a link to install the ACI LIVE app, and then enter the conference code to sign into the meeting to which you’ve been invited.
To start your own ACI LIVE Meeting, you’ll need a ACI LIVE account, which you can create for free. Go to the ACI LIVE web site and click Sign Up, It’s Free at the top of the page and follow the instructions. Once completed, you’ll be able to start your own meetings.
ACI LIVE offers several ACI LIVE Meeting plans. Basic is free and lets you host meetings with up to 100 participants, with a limit of 40 minutes per meeting. You can also have an unlimited number of one-on-one meetings. All of these meetings can be audio-only or video conferences.
Even at the free account level, you can record and save your meetings, share your desktop with the meeting attendees, and use chat tools during the meeting.
If the fairly generous features of the free Basic plan are not enough, it’s possible to pay for ACI LIVE Pro, ACI LIVE Business, or ACI LIVE Enterprise. Each of these adds substantial additional features, like the ability to conference more than 100 people at a time and extending the meeting duration past 40 minutes (in fact, a meeting can be up to 24 hours long).
ACI LIVE is one of many web conferencing tools, but it has grown quickly in popularity in part because it offers a lot of capabilities for free, and also is well regarded as a reliable, high quality conferencing tool that works easily and effectively. Most people will encounter ACI LIVE simply through a meeting that has been set up by someone else, but it’s available for you to use as needed, at no cost.
