An enhancement that improves the digital wellbeing of video conferencing

Video conferences are part of everyday life for many of us today. However, chaining daily meetings through your computer isn’t always a positive, and digital wellbeing can be questioned. Stress and fatigue can affect productivity and video conferencing … torture.

To improve digital wellbeing, Ben Flux and his team created Mindfulmeets. A free Chrome extension for Google Meet (coming soon to Zoom and Microsoft teams). The idea is to bring a little joy to remote working. In developing the product, the concerns of the employees who conduct video conferencing were taken into account in order to create a solution that motivates employees to participate in video conferences.
