Zoom will help companies introduce a virtual receptionist so that they can limit personal contact, the company behind the video calling service announced on Wednesday.

Companies can place a special screen at the entrance, which a receptionist can connect to from home or another room in the office. He can then greet the visitor.

During a short video demonstration, Zoom showed how the receptionist can then, for example, open doors remotely or record the temperature of a visitor with linked equipment.

Zoom has been making software that companies can use to make video calls for some time. The company grew rapidly in a short time, because many people are forced to work from home due to the corona virus.

With offices reopening in some countries in part, Zoom is looking for ways to stay relevant. The virtual receptionist is an example of this. In addition, the company makes special cameras with which meetings in the office can also be attended virtually by others.

Zoom has also announced a few updates to its video chat software, including the ability to integrate apps directly into Zoom.

In an online marketplace, users will soon be able to find paid online events such as workshops or cooking classes given through Zoom.
