Zoom Escaper gives you legitimate excuses (sort of) to escape the Zoom calls. The Web extension was first spotted by The Verge. “Zoom Escaper is a tool to help you escape Zoom meetings and other video conferencing scenarios,” Lavigne’s website describes. “It allows you to self-sabotage your audio stream, making your presence unbearable to others.”
There are sounds effects like Echo, Bad Connection, Upset Baby, Man Weeping, Wind, Dogs, Construction, and Urination to choose from while planning your escape from online office meetings. However, you will need the help of the VB-Audio audio-routing software. VB-Audio will help you shift your audio on Zoom from the computer to the Web extension. The creator has provided the tutorial video below on how to set up the extension on your computer.
Lavigne also created another Web extension – Zoom Deleter – that automatically detects the appl on your computer and deletes it. Lavigne explains on his website, “It continually checks for the presence of Zoom on your computer, and if found, immediately deletes it.”
