We live in a digital world. For many, work now takes place online rather than in an office. That’s why it’s great to see new technology arise that helps workers with video conferencing. Mmhmm is just that. It’s a powerful virtual camera app that connects with all of your favorite video call services. According to them, “Mmhmm helps you be better on video, whether you’re presenting during a video meeting or recording content you want to share asynchronously.”
What can mmhmm do?
Get a Room
Mmhmm has a wide array of virtual backgrounds which they refer to as “rooms”. By choosing a room, you can change your virtual location and personalize your video. As shown in the image below, the room function also does a great job of hiding distractions that may appear in the background of your call.
Say It with Slides
One of the coolest features of mmhmm, in my opinion, is the ability to add slides to your video stream. Not only can you add slides, but you can also share your screen and videos as well.
Effects that Wow
If you’ve read our Snap Camera articles, you know we love filters and effects. Mmhmm has a variety of color overlays and filters that you can add to your video to really take your stage presence to the next level.
Record, Save, and Share
Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to record a call. Mmhmm takes it one step further. Mmhmm allows you to prerecord mp4’s to share however you please. But, there is more, you can also share interactive presentations! Interactive presentations allow you to separate your video recording into different sections. Using the slides I mentioned above, you can create beautiful cover slides to highlight your main points. This video from mmhmm, explaining their creative name, is a great illustration of what you can do with interactive presentations.
Present with a Friend
It’s great to have a little backup every once in a while. With mmhmm, you can have two presenters at once! This means two people can edit and control the presentation at the same time. You can present together or give someone the reigns to control slides while you present.
