Remote Shorts is live on Product Hunt today 🚀🎉
Ever since the pandemic began, everything from concerts to classes has made the transition to Zoom. At one point, I even used Zoom to reach out to my buddy next door! It is evident that Zoom is being used for various events rather than just for business meetings or conferences.
Now Zoom attempts to put a stronghold on this massive audience by introducing a new set of features during its Zoomtopia 2020 event.
Zoom introduced ‘Zapps’ that enables users to directly integrate into third-party platforms including Dropbox, HubSpot, Salesforce, and also this week’s top product— LucidSpark. This will allow seamless idea-sharing and facilitates easier collaboration without ever leaving Zoom's interface.
Zoom also launched OnZoom, an online event platform and marketplace. With this platform, hosts can grow their businesses, expand their reach, and most importantly, they’ll also be able to charge for events.
Hosts can add event features such as chat, polls, reactions, and question-and-answer to create a more immersive experience for participants. Meanwhile, consumers can use OnZoom to discover classes, concerts & workshops. Does it mean my Zumba classes will no longer be free? :/
We are so excited to announce OnZoom: a marketplace for immersive experiences and events. https://t.co/xTfsm7rnU6— Zoom (@zoom_us) October 14, 2020
Want to recreate a classroom or courtroom experience on Zoom? With Immersive Scenes, you can now set a custom background theme for meetings or create layouts where participant videos are embedded within a scene that everyone shares, like classrooms, etc. Looks cool, isn't it?
More immersive, engaging, and collaborative meetings — we have new platform enhancements to give you all of the above. 💻 https://t.co/OmFzEeonZ5— Zoom (@zoom_us) October 14, 2020
