Zoom meetings have been all the rage lately. Since the world started staying home it seems as if we are on Zoom meetings all day. Although very functional, there is something pretty dry about the Zoom setup. What if you could turn your Zoom screen into a talk show?
Phil Libin, who was the CEO of Evernote has returned with exactly what we need. He is in early BETA testing with a new product, called Mmhmm. It turns your Zoom calls into something more like you would see in Saturday Night Live’s ‘Weekend Update’. This new product boasts a ton of not only fun, but cool features.
Like most programs, there are a host of backgrounds from static images to animated scenes. There is also the ability to have a ‘window’ on your screen and this is where it gets fun. You can have anything you wish in this window. If you are doing a presentation you can put it in the window. You can even airplay from your your phone should you wish to give a phone demo. You are also able to put anything from a browser to live TV up there, the choices are endless. From there you can make the window bigger and even make yourself smaller so you are tucked away in the corner. Should there be a specific point you want people to focus on you can float yourself over there to point to it.
The possibilities for your image in Mmhmm are also plenty. As mentioned you can shrink yourself and float around the screen to draw attention to something in your window. You can also make yourself vanish out of the picture completely. If you are looking for a middle ground you can turn yourself transparent so people can read through you or even give yourself a blue hue should you wish to resemble a fallen Jedi (my favorite feature).
Turn your presentation decks into a multiplayer game with ‘dynamic decks’. This allows you to merge a movie and a presentation all in one. Give power to those who are watching and allow them to flip through slides at their own will. There is no ‘one person’ driving the presentation.
Mmhmm is still in its early stages however they are looking for BETA testers. If you would like to become a tester simply click here to apply.
