I use Skype for a weekly family conference (4 users normally). It works
reasonably well for our use case. We used to use Google Hangouts but
found it quite annoying because of its "smart" strategy of
foregrounding any pane which generates sound (some of my family have
kids running around in the background). Skype doesn't suffer from this,
though it's far from user-friendly in some respects (resizing panes is
still a complete mystery to me).

We actually tried Google Duo recently and had good results for one-to-
one chats, but the multi-user option only works with mobile devices.
The web version currently doesn't.

BTW, Zoom not only leaks private data (though they say they're
addressing that), it also does *NOT* implement end-to-end encryption,
contrary to what the marketing blurb says. See:
