Thanks for all answers,

I want to use my laptop and talk to somebody or even exeptionally to others (several people) in a room, connected through one laptop. (through more laptops - I haven't done it yet, so I don't know)

Earlier I used Skype.

Jitsi Meet isn't in guix. But Jami is there.

There are 8 packages for Jami, do I need to install all of them?

ffmpeg-jami     4.4.2   Audio and video framework       htttps://

jami    20220726.1515.da8d1da   Qt Jami client

jami-gnome      20220726.1515.da8d1da   Qt Jami client

jami-qt 20220726.1515.da8d1da   Qt Jami client

libjami 20220726.1515.da8d1da   Jami core library and daemon

libring 20220726.1515.da8d1da   Jami core library and daemon

node-jsondiffpatch 0.3.11 Diff & Patch for Javascript objects

pjproject-jami 2.11-0.e1f389d Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stack

Additionally, I guess, I have to set up "jami-service-type"

I think Jami may be the closest thing to Skype we have.  If you are
interested in setting up persistent conference rooms, you may be
interested in the jami-service-type as well, which makes it easy to host
such on headless servers.
