Kenyan startup Usiku Games has launched Gumzo, a video conferencing platform to allow friends, colleagues and family communicate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gumzo is a voice and video conferencing service created in Africa, looking to take on the likes of Zoom, Skype, Messenger Rooms, and Google Meet.

The service is currently free for those attending, and KES. 100 (US $1) for those looking to host their own meetings as they seek to enable businesses and individuals to communicate with each other in a reliable, secure, and affordable means.

Unlike other video conferencing platforms, Gumzo has no app to download or extensions to configure. All calls happen in the browser, so they automatically work on any smartphone or PC, right away.

Once someone has a trusted account, they can join a meeting with a single click. Visit to get their services.
