Improve your team meetings 10X with this mind-blowing AI tool

The daily stand-up can be a drag on any workday, but Waitroom aims to simplify the process with efficient video conferencing and AI tools.

A woman waves at the laptop with airpods in as she checks in for daily stand-ups.

For remote work teams, daily stand-ups are often essential. They keep everybody updated on what’s going on and allow team members to pivot their daily tasks when necessary.

Unfortunately, they’re usually also boring and inefficient—whether it’s because your boss drones on forever or because the meeting that was supposed to take 5 minutes turns into an hour-long discussion of an unrelated issue.

Waitroom—a new video-conferencing platform—aims to change all that. Founded by Vinny Lingham, Margaret Grobler and Michael Gaylord, the platform originally allowed fans to watch their favorite people. But it soon morphed into team meeting software with three unusual new features. 

Timed Queues: Want to make a point? Better get in line! Waitroom allows participants to talk only if they join a queue—and then makes them get to the point within a predetermined amount of time. (The platform does have a feature that allows you to chime in as long as you receive permission.)

Limited Video: If you’re not the main speaker, your video is automatically turned off. This is supposed to minimize distractions and improve efficiency. (Although honestly, this seems like a double-edged sword. On the one hand, I won’t be distracted by my coworkers’ cats; on the other hand, it’s much harder to pay attention to boring meetings if I know nobody’s watching me scroll through my phone.)

AI-Assisted Summaries: Always wanted to work with robots? Now’s your chance. Waitroom now automatically creates meeting summaries and analyses with their recent GPT-4 integration. 

Waitroom might be particularly helpful for global teams. They’re currently working on Summa, an AI assistant who can translate in real time and provide background information from other sources, like Slack and Notion. Summa will also summarize any portion of the meeting that you missed if you arrive late (or leave early).
