Miscellaneous Monday: Color me creative (virtual edition)

A few weeks ago, Zoom was an everyday tool that we used in the office to get work done. Jumping from meeting room, to phone booth, to in-person sync, I never consider how I might customize it. Now ..... it's the only way I see my teammates' faces. It's how our teams show our creativity and personalities.  

When one of our co-workers left, we changed our virtual backgrounds to a photo of her as part of her send off.

During Summit last week, another coworker made it look like he was in a room with Mike and Scott.

And my favorite so far, several of my teammates surprised the rest of our team by showing up with face-masks on. It was a great ice breaker into the meeting and kept the team laughing (especially since some of our masks gave Jason Friday 13th vibes).

These are few small examples of how our team has learned to get creative in light of our new style of remote work. How are your teams showing their personalities and getting creative with your new remote style of work? Share in the comments!

I love this idea to use in a work context! Thanks for sharing! I’ve only really experienced this approach of customising backgrounds on Zoom calls for catching up with my old Uni friends. However, I will definitely bear this idea in mind as an ice breaker as I start a new ScrumMaster role in just over a week. Thanks again!

@Susannah Chambers This is really just the tip of the iceberg too. There is an app call SnapCamera that adds fun filters to Zoom that a few people on our team really like. I haven't used it a ton but it's the next fun things some of our teammates have been using :) 

At work we use Google Meet and the only feature yet is the blur but other background are coming soon. I tried the blur but it takes a lot of bandwidth so I don't use it often.
