SAN FRANCISCO (dpa-AFX) – Silicon Valley veteran Phil Libin assumes that video conferences will not only remain a fixed part of everyday life after the end of the corona pandemic, but that the possibilities of technology will also change work. We are currently trying to recreate the usual type of meetings with people in a boring room over the Internet, said Libin in an interview with the German press agency. “The first generation of something new often tries to imitate the old reality.” But in a year’s time, video conferences would feel different, predicted Libin, who previously ran the Evernote note-taking app, among other things.

Among other things, the trend will increase to individualize the background and environment in video conference apps such as Zoom (Zoom Video Communications) or Google (Alphabet C (ex Google)) Meet. “We sometimes spend more time in these virtual rooms than in real rooms – so it makes sense that one thinks about how they can be decorated or individualized.”

Video conferences would also stay outside of the world of work, where they are better than previous attendance models, said Libin. “I will definitely not make an appointment for many visits to the doctor, go there, sit in the waiting room with other patients, spend 20 minutes with the doctor and then drive back the way.” Video conferencing could be better in education too, if done right.

After leaving Evernote, Libin became a partner at the venture capitalist Catalyst in San Francisco and then founded the app developer studio All Turtles. During the pandemic, the mmhmm app was developed there, which aims to bring new types of video conferencing functions to platforms such as Zoom. This includes the option of fading in a presentation while the speaker remains in the picture. Another innovation is “Big Hands”: software recognizes gestures made by a user such as raised and lowered thumbs – and fades in a larger hand drawn over them so that it can also be seen in the small gallery view ./so/DP/zb
