Our aim is to help you improving your team's productivity and simply getting things done in calls avoiding common traps like endless discussions. Whipple helps keeping your calls focused and productive by eliminating distractions, creating more balanced discussions as well as making sure that all team members have equal opportunity in expressing their ideas and being listened to through simple but effective rules.
Whipple introduces a set of improvements to well-established features that in combination provide a breakthrough in enhancing video call productivity and effectiveness.
Engaging calls for all participants.
Calls shouldn't be dominated by a select few or even only one participants. A study has as even shown that in case only one person or a small group spoke all the time, the collective intelligence of the group declined. However, as long as everyone got a chance to talk, the team did well. Therefore, Whipple incentivizes a balanced discussion.
Limited time to talk per turn per person.
By not placing a limit, we encourage rambling, off-topic and useless conversation. Constraints breed creativity. You have 100 seconds to talk everytime it's your turn, that's it. With only 100 seconds per turn every participant is reminded to focus on the most relevant facts and made aware to get straight the point quickly.
Avoiding participants interrupting each other.
There's one person clearly assigned to be talking while everyone else is muted then. This tiny change helps a ton to keep the call focused and calm. Gone are the days with multiple participants talking simultaneously and people interrupting each other in the middle of a sentence. More structure, more effective calls.
Press to talk.
We think its not necessary to transmit someone's microphone input all the time when he's only talking every so often. Say goodbye to background noises like barking dogs or sneezing. In case you have something to say, just hit space or the according button.
A queue for maximum fairness.
In Whipple indicating you have something to say is as easy as hitting a button and you'll be put in the queue. This way you can be sure to get the opportunity to make your point and being listened to when its your turn. Even a shy person has an easy way to actively take part in the discussion.
How does Whipple compare to existing video call tools?
Unlike any other tool. A fresh new look in the world of video calls.
We use industry standard security technologies to ensures that your information is always safe. Video and audio streams passing through the platform are encrypted using AES 128-bit encryption.
We are working on this. Currently there is no way to lock rooms but you can ensure nobody accidently joins your room by being creative and using an unusual room name.
Currently there is a limit of 5 people for one room.
Currently Whipple runs in the browser so you don't have to download anything to get started. On desktop operating systems the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox and Safari are supported. On Android, Whipple can be run using Chrome or Firefox for Android.
Unfortunately, iOS support is limited at this point due to Apple's restrictions for WebRTC in the browser. However, we are going to release mobile apps for iOS and Android devices later this year.
Don't worry, we know it's an unusual concept that needs to be learned first, but we think its worth it. We've prepared an interactive tutorial guiding you through the interface and its functionality while you're in Whipple. In additions, you get hints by hovering over the buttons
We are still in beta and currently testing different modes and formats. As long as we are in beta we are not going to charge for anything. Longterm, there will be a premium version with advanced features besides a free version.
We’re working hard to make Whipple great for you. If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions, let us know!
