A escape for your zoom meetings. Pixabay

If you get bored of long zoom meetings on certain days, here comes an app that will create natural sounds like a crying baby, a barking dog, choppy audio, construction noises, echo sounds and more, so that you can escape the meetings with a reasonable excuse. Called Zoom Escaper, it is a free web widget that lets you add an array of fake audio effects to your Zoom Call. Created by artist Sam Lavigne, Zoom Escaper is simple to use.

“All you need do is download a free bit of audio software called VB-Audio that routes your audio through the website, then change your audio input in Zoom from your microphone to VB-Audio, and play with the effects,” reports The Verge.

If Zoom Escaper isn’t enough for you, there’s also Zoom Deleter which is also one of Lavigne’s creations. This is a small program that runs in your menu bar or system tray.

“It continually checks for the presence of Zoom meeting on your computer, and if found, immediately deletes it.” According to him, such apps are meant for “deliberate slowdown, reducing productivity and output, self-sabotage, etc”. A crying baby can be your best excuse to drop a Zoom call (make sure your colleague knows that you have a baby at home). (IANS/SP)

The legendary captain was great in batting but did not score a ton for more than two years.

The Indian cricket lovers have been waiting for a ton from Virat Kohli for a long time, and he finally has made it. However, not in the batting as most fans expect, but in catching balls.

The second day of the 3rd Test in Capetown between local Proteas and the Men in Blue was rich for interesting occasions. Thus, South Africa was waiting for a good scoring result after stopping all Indian batters on the first day. Their opponents, however, have been looking for nice bowling not to lose the game just in the first innings. And while Bumrah added five wickets to his score, one of the dismissals should go to Virat Kohli.
