Zoom: As of this Wednesday (21), Zoom started to allow the integration of third-party applications in its video calls. The new version of the platform now has an “Applications” division, with around 60 apps, including Asana, Dropbox Spaces, Dot Collector and Funtivity.
Third-party programs available in Zoom Apps, as the service is being called, can be uploaded and shared with participants in a virtual meeting. The purpose of the function is to make it easier for users to access their favorite entertainment, wellness and productivity software, according to the company.
The function provides space on the screen to collaborate, from the option to expand and collapse the Apps side panel. In addition, you can also open your application in a new window and switch usage between multiple programs simultaneously.
Currently, Zoom Apps has 59 apps. Check out some options that can make corporate meetings more organized, collaborative and productive:
Asana: Allows you to create, edit and assign tasks to track the progress of teamwork.
Dropbox Spaces: Enable real-time collaboration in a single shared workspace.
Dot Collector: Allows everyone in a meeting to share their perspective through real-time feedback and surveys.
Funtivity: Offers activities and content for a wide variety of occasions, including team building, conference meetings and cultural events.
