We have landed in 21st century. Its a digital era where people communicate through digital means. Now people around the world can communicate with each other as if they are sitting in front of each other, present physically. All this has been possible due to the invention of video calling and communicating applications.
Recently the world has experienced the CoviD-19 phase. The pandemic was a terrific experience for everyone and hence people were much horrified about it. All the organizations gave up on the idea of calling their students, workers and other staff physically to the workplace or school or any other institution for work. It was because the virus exploded on a massive level and calling them to the place was not a wise option.
This was exactly the time period when people started worrying about their work and education. But as a savior, people came to know about the video calling and business communication platforms. Platforms such as google meet, zoom and Microsoft teams were the last and final option to count on. It was a very difficult task for all the people around the world to adapt to the new way of working through internet. The video calling apps were a bit difficult to get used to. Thus, people found it difficult to use them.

Similarly, for an office employee, a teams section may have two or three tabs depending on the number of different meetings of different issues they have.
