Jitsi Meet is also an excellent web-based video conferencing tool. They also have a basic comparison of WebRTC vs Zoom [0] which is actually has the same demonstration video as your second article. I posted a basic overview elsewhere in this thread [1], and I would strongly recommend it.

how does it work ? because we do larger conference calls with a distributed team of 40 people. As in - is there a paid plan, etc

also, does it work with mobile apps ?

It's free. It has apps for iOS and Android and you can also phone in. I've never used it for such large meetings, but apparently it handles 100+ people fine [0], and they have a blog post about scaling [1].
