Currently, in FreedomBox, a simple video conference room is included with Janus. This video room can be accessed by anyone who visits your FreedomBox; it does not require logging in with a user account.

My #FreedomBox has finished dist-upgrading itself to Debian Bullseye.
One app did not upgrade itself, that will be fixed in an upcoming release (hopefully today).
