We can’t carry our brick and mortar office environment to our homes. But we can create a virtual one that will give us similar or even better experiences. During the lockdown, startups are launching new work from home tools to help all of us work better.
We went through the web (and Product Hunt especially), to gather these new tools for you. Right from creating a virtual office to getting the right virtual background for your video calls, there is something for everyone working from home.
Ready to select a tool of your choice? Let’s go.RemoteTeam, the Zoom Virtual Background is a platform that allows remote workers to search for thousands of royalty-free images and videos for their virtual backgrounds during Zoom video conferences.
The platform, which was launched in March 2020, uses APIs to pull these royalty-free images and videos from different sources and make them available to anyone looking to cover their background. It’s originally built for those who just went remote and would love to cover their embarrassing backgrounds or don’t want to show their room during video calls, especially when things aren’t that ‘normal’. However, it’s a great product that will help many other remote workers even after the pandemic.Product Hunt on 19th March 2020, Donut allows remote teams from different departments to do activities together virtually, including organize learning sessions, have group lunches and virtual coffee, and more. It’s a Slack app so it’s easy to get started keeping the “social” in your virtual team.
Virtual FestivalMissing the beach life? The music shows? Why not participate virtually? Yes, it’s possible with Virtual Festival, a new tool from Festival Hunt that comes with a curation of all the virtual musical shows and festivals to help you spend your quarantine time with excitement. VirtualOffice is a tool that allows remote workers to create branded virtual offices for use as virtual backgrounds during Zoom video calls. It is created to let remote workers feel like they’re in their brick and mortar offices, and comes with different office settings, including luxury office settings, the startup with ping pong table settings, and board meeting settings among others.
