Hybrid-remote work can empower people and teams to be extraordinary in ways that the old way of work never could. But in order to do so, we need to think beyond the office. It’s not about replicating traditional office dynamics in a virtual setting, but instead creating a new kind of space for people to meet in ways that make them feel more creative, energized, and connected.
Fire up a game
Did you know that games can be a healthy part of remote work culture? From within a meeting, open the Power-Ups menu in the bottom right corner and select the Games tab to start a quick multiplayer game and infuse fresh energy into your work day. Just share the game link to invite others to join you. Our titles include:
Start a happy hour
Want to add some color to your next team hang or co-working session? From within a meeting, open the Power-Ups menu in the bottom right corner and select the Vibes tab to choose your desired Vibe (Synthwave? Chillhop? Night Drive?) and get launched into an immersive Campfire Mode experience that includes a curated selection of musical playlists and gorgeous visuals. Throw a few GIFs and emojis into the mix and you're off to the races.
Bring your own vibes
Around's audio processing is optimized for voices, which is great for conversation, but can create unwanted distortion when other types of audio are shared. With our Share System Audio feature, you can bypass our signal processing and send high quality audio from another device or application to everyone else in your meeting. Now you can DJ your next hangout or show up to your next standup with your electric guitar (maybe don't do this one).
