Introducing D'Zoom

A brand new app that allows you to interrupt your virtual meeting by simulating a poor internet connection. The app works with the most popular video conferencing platforms and gives you control over when you want to be seen and heard, and when you want to make it look like your lapse in attention is entirely not your fault.

Simple and easy to use, just turn on D'Zoom and your video connection will give the impression of interruptions and technical difficulties, leaving the other participants none the wiser as to your true intentions.

Who's it for?

Politicians on TV

Boris Johnson

Didn’t have time to look at your brief before going live on air?

Don’t worry, the next words from the reporter will be “We seem to have lost you. Apologies to our viewers, we’ll try to get them back as soon as possible”. Enough time for an aide to explain what's going on.

Remote workers

For when you’re not paying attention during your morning meeting and don’t know the answer to the question you’ve just been asked.

Flick this on and blame your dodgy internet for not hearing.

Family catch ups

Royal family

A good conversation can always turn sour when that slightly awkward relative starts being a little bit 'politically incorrect'.

Interrupt the conversation with a poor connection and let them know you’ll call them back at a better time.

Lessons may have gone virtual, but some things remain the same.

Fed up of the constant bickering? Tired of seeing up their nose? Turn on D’Zoom, blame the IT department and end the lesson early.

“It’s like when you used to fake the static noises of entering a tunnel on an awkward phone call. Lots of 'pssshh'-ing and 'cssshh'-ing. But now all done for you by just opening the app!”

Ahh… yes

It's not really a thing. Just a bit of a joke. Sorry!

It's a bit awkward now isn't it?
