Whereby offers rooms of different sizes to suit different needs. 

Size Capacity Available in # of video feeds Connection
Small 4 All plans 4 Peer-to-Peer
Large 12 Pro 12 Central Server
XL 50 Business and Pro 12  Central Server

Small rooms use a peer-to-peer connection to send/receive audio and video streams.

For Large and XL rooms, a central server receives and bundles every participant's video and audio into a single stream, and delivers them to each participant so connections don't get overloaded between individuals.

Note

XL Rooms can hold 50 participants, with 12 being on video at the same time. We call this being “on stage.” It is possible to rotate which participants are on video; if one person turns their camera off, another can turn theirs on. This mode is great for company-wide meetings, classes, and presentations with many listeners and a few speakers. Audio-only participants will see and hear everything that is happening in the meeting, and can unmute their microphones to talk.
