9 tips for better Zooming

These days, we’re all on Zoom. We use the video conferencing software for both work and social settings as we continue to socially distance. Zoom launched on Product Hunt years ago, where early adopters lauded its high fidelity connections and simple design. The product stands out for its ease of use, and the company was growing quickly even before the pandemic. Though Zoom didn’t publicly share user numbers in its March earnings call, the company has seen a “large increase” in the number of free users as well as minutes spent on calls.

With Zoom making its way into the (necessary) zeitgeist, there are lots of tricks and apps out there to make using the software a better experience. We rounded up best tips for you — happy video chatting! 👋

🙌 VirtualOffice lets you brand the background of your Zoom calls. Simply select your office, fill in your information and upload your logo.

💯 Fireflies is an AI assistant that helps you record, transcribe, and search your Zoom calls all in one place. It also lets you pull up action items, dates, deadlines and metrics after the meeting.

👀 Zoom Virtual Backgrounds has a ton of great #inspo for your call backgrounds.

🌙 Goodnight Zoom connects kids (and their parents) across the U.S. to isolated seniors right now. The team behind Goodnight Zoom is working with nursing homes and linking them up families to get a regular remote interaction going.

🔊 Krisp is a browser extension that uses AI to cancel background noise and echoes on your Zoom calls.

😉 Snap Camera lets you apply Lenses to your face while using your computer's webcam (aka during a Zoom call).

Some pro tips for Zoom that we found over on YourStack: You can give yourself a beauty filter on your calls and share chat logs from your Zoom meetings on Slack. You can also hold the space bar to temporarily unmute yourself. 👏
