Set your look

A great show uses space, lighting, and special effects to make the speaker look their best. In mmhmm, you can similarly change your appearance with the Presenter panel. 

The presenter panel gives you the ability to use your real room as a background, add fun filters to your appearance with the effects dropdown, and let your audience know you'll be right back if you step away from your presentation

You can also enable gestural communication with Big Hands. See what happens when you wave, give a thumbs-up, flash a peace sign, or make a heart!
