The COVID-19 outbreak disrupted different organizations, employees and students, who turned to teleconference applications to collaborate and socialize even during the quarantine. Thus, the demand of teleconferencing applications surged with mobile application downloads reaching the highest number ever seen. However, some of the teleconference applications recently suffered from several issues such as security, privacy, media quality, reliability, capacity and technical difficulties. Thus, in this work, we explore the opinions of different users towards different teleconference applications. Firstly, posts on Twitter, known as tweets, about remote working and different teleconference applications are extracted using different keywords. Then, the extracted tweets are passed to sentiment classifier to classify the tweets into positive and negative. Afterwards, the most important features of different teleconference applications are extracted and analyzed. Finally, we highlight the main strengths, drawbacks and challenges of different teleconference applications
