    • Capabilities for all: Whether you’re a free or paid user, we have options for you
    • Real-time interaction: Live transcriptions, so you don’t fall behind in the conversation
    • Complete experience: Going beyond in-meeting support with post-meeting functionality, such as recording highlights and search
