The world is not getting simpler. Technology was supposed to make things easier. Take Zoom for instance. It's popular because it is easy, but some people are used to the other interfaces they have been using for a long time and a new one can be non-intuitive. And some people just don't want to use it for security or other concerns. They might be using WebEx, GoToMeeting, Facetime, Google, WhatsApp, Microsoft, or Skype, among many. Not all of these work on all platforms. Therein lie the problems. For this and many other categories, we need an aggregator; one easy to use common denominator interface that works across all platforms. Not saying that the aggregator can replace the more complex features that make each of these apps unique, but the simple functions of downloading any kernels, single sign-in, and populating basic user info could be all built into the aggregator.
