Using MuteMe with Zoom

With the pandemic over the last few years we saw the entire world move to working and learning from home. With a sudden change in how companies went about how their workforce was to conduct their work, there was a significant learning curve to virtual conference app adoption. The need for finding the right tool to hold video conferences was crucial to ensure the best success. Enter Zoom. Peer-to-Peer communication was crucial between employees, with everyone working from home. In March of 2020, video conferencing apps saw a record of 62 million downloads. Zoom itself had over 300 million participants per day in 2020. With this spike in remote work, employers started realizing the benefits of remote work. Benefits such as the cost savings associated with not having much real estate capital. This led to many of the tech giants like Amazon and Twitter announcing the flexibility to work from home on a permanent basis. Today, the world has kept the efficiency of remote work in addition to moving to hybrid models as COVID has begun to slow down. By 2025, Gartner predicts that fifty percent of all virtual events will occur on video meeting platforms already deployed by businesses. Zoom also came out with new features this year like Smart Gallery and Zoom for Home. These innovation trends show us that remote working is here to stay whether from your home, coffee shop, airport or anywhere else in the world! How do you configure Zoom to work with MuteMe?
