Whether for high-volume hiring or simply doing it all remotely, video interviews help you get to know a candidate more personally than a phone screen without the time and costs of an in-person conversation.
But how do you know which software is right for the job?
There are dozens of video interview platforms on the market right now (and that’s just the purpose-built platforms, ignoring multi-purpose softwares like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Whereby).
One of the best ways to assess a platform is to actually try it. That’s why we’ve outlined the top free video interview softwares.
In this article, you’ll find two types of software:
- Platforms that have a free forever tier with a smaller or limited feature set.
- Honourable mentions for platforms that have free trials with no commitment.
We did not include any platforms that require booking a demo to see pricing, as we want to showcase platforms you can sign up for on your own whenever you’re ready.
