How to get out of video calls 😈
Freeze me
We've all been in a meeting that could have been an email. But what about those Zoom calls, or classes, that make you wish the ground would open up and swallow you whole? Luckily, Kevin has built a tool to save you from another unnecessary meeting.

Freezing Cam lets you freeze your webcam during video calls on purpose. You can also fake a stuttering webcam or even play a video instead of your webcam.

The community is already finding some pretty unique use-cases for it:

"Love it! Finally, I m going to eat my favorite ice cream in virtual class without my teacher noticing ahah" - Marion

"LOL, students are going to love this."- Ryan

"Finally I can pick my nose mid zoom." - Jason

Freezcam gives us some Bufferi-ng vibes, where you can pretend to lose connection on your Zoom call. A couple of older products that can come in handy to get you out of tricky meetings; cop-out will help you skip the meeting altogether with a handy excuse, or callback will preschedule a fake call so you can pretend to be pulled away by an important client or issue. 😈

For some more practical products to help eliminate pointless meetings with asynchronous options, we covered a few new products last month or check-out our list from last year.
