In the post-covid era, Zoom has become a blockbuster platform. Prior to the pandemic, virtual meetings were unknown to business leaders and managers. But as travel restrictions limited us, the physical operation of businesses was closed, and employees were made to work remotely. At this point, professionals felt the need for a platform where they could conduct business meetings.
They ended up finding Zoom, a giant platform for virtual meetings, as a reliable platform. Since then, Zoom has been in the limelight. Professionals from all walks of life have been flocking to Zoom to conduct video calls and virtual business meetings. Now, in the post-covid world, Zoom is still a top-notch platform for business meetings and group video calls.
However, as professionals continue to use Zoom for professional meetings and group video calls, the platform is becoming boring. And you know millennials! We can not stand something that is boring. That is why people across the globe are adding some spices to the platform. Some glitchiness here and some pranks there!
With that said, if you are looking to enlighten your coworkers or simply want to mess with your friends, Zoom has a lot of options for you. We are learning now that Zoom is more than just a boring platform for professional meetings. Instead, it is a fun app that has funny features to mess with your coworkers or colleagues.
And why not? Laughter is the best medicine, after all. Make use of the following goldmine features of Zoom to enlighten your friends and coworkers:
Fool Your Coworkers With Custom Backgrounds
Now that Zoom is the best prank oyster, here is a simple way to mess with your coworkers. Use a custom background on the app to make the participants suspicious. Through this “custom background,” you can make the participants see that you are in some wondrous locales.
So, you will make the participants see that you are physically on a remote island. Or, you are sitting on a beach somewhere in French Riveria. That is right! Zoom offers custom backgrounds. This means you can opt for any location in the world and troll your friends.
Thus, all this can be done while sitting on your desk or literally anywhere in your home.
Unmute Yourself & Pretend You are Talking
This is another simple and classy one. Unmute yourself and make mouth gestures. Make the participants feel you are talking to them, but you are muted.
To add spice to the troll, make bizarre shapes of your mouth and body language. It will make the participants yell at you: “Hey! Unmute yourself!” Later on, reveal that you are already unmuted, but you were messing with them.
