We build a virtual office for remote teams and allows teammates to have live audio chat and collaborate on top of any web-app. Not only a virtual workspace with simultaneous voice rooms, our browser extension turns any web-app into a collaborative voice channel so that people can see each other, talk and collaborate when working on the same thing. No context-switching, no more meeting, faster impromptu collaboration.
This review from a product owner perspective
Let's face it, "work" has changed completely. Daily commutes are drastically reduced, hours spent in the office are down, and leaving our dogs while we hit up meetings are becoming a thing of the past. It all seems amazing until we start to realize we've introduced more issues.
How do we get feedback quickly? How do I interact with my counterparts? Who ARE my counterparts now that I haven't seen them in over a year? The new distributed workforce is here to stay, which means we have to solve the problems that come with it.
A large company in my area requires that the entire teams stay on Zoom calls all day. Literally ALL day long Zoom calls. I can't tell you how fast I would quit if I were in this scenario, and I'm sure that I'm not alone. We as managers, employers, and founders need to be able to allow autonomy within our teams while also providing means to quickly communicate without feeling like an all-seeing eye.
TMate attempts to help with this problem, unfortunately, they have a ways to go.

What we didn't like
Unfortunately, we have to give TMate a pretty low score but we encourage them to reapply after they've addressed some bugs. I think this market is really wide open and will continue to grow.
TMate gets a score of 57%:
