In one of the best product explainer videos we’ve seen in a while, Phil Libin of Evernote fame, introduced his latest project, mmhmm
. The name is cool but more importantly: it could be a game changer for video calls and presentations.
Here are some initial reactions from the community:
“That's an impressive innovation in a cluttered field.”
“Congrats on the launch! Love the 'daily show' format. Excited to try this out.”
“I can think of dozens of use-cases for myself, but I’m really excited to see this used in educational contexts.”
Of course, there are many options to host your video calls right now, including Zoom
, Google Meet
, Microsoft Teams
, Brave Together
and even Facebook
(among many others). But mmhmm is unique, focused on making presentations more engaging. There will be no Zoom fatigue on your next company all-hands.
How it works: Select a room with a virtual background to set the tone for your meeting. Then project a screen to host your presentation inline, similar to old fashioned news anchors reviewing the weather forecast. The app also supports “Jedi-Ghost mode” (see the video) and on-screen floating.
With so many competing technologies hoping to make our remote work-life more interactive (looking at you, Snap Camera
), working from home in our new normal could become more engaging and connected than ever before.
