Jelly: More communication, less Zoom fatigue

One-size solutions only work when they're customizable

Everyone has their own way of communicating. Some prefer to connect in person, while others love catching up over the phone or via teleconferencing platforms. No matter how you choose to connect, finding a time to do so can be challenging. This is because we all have a million different things going on. It's not just figuring out when your work schedule aligns correctly with another person's; it's also managing all of the appointments and commitments that exist outside of the realm of work.

When we add in complications that have become part of our increasingly global and digital economy (time zones), it can start to feel overwhelming. is a calendar scheduling infrastructure product that can fix all of this.

What is Jelly?

So before I go into all the benefits of Jelly, let me just pull the Band-Aid off and tell you the bad news. Jelly is currently in alpha, this means that unless you already have an invitation, or you sign up for the waitlist, you can't actually use it right now. However, in spite of this, Jelly is still a really interesting product because it provides a unique solution for remote workers and just really anyone who's dealing with zoom fatigue. You see, unlike a lot of conferencing platforms, Jelly is camera-free.

This means that you don't have to worry about lighting, backdrops, and whether or not your shirt is inside out. Instead, you can focus on what really matters: the conversation, the connection, the content. Meetings on Jelly happen via voice chat with key highlights and details highlighted with visuals created by their AI. This helps to provide an engaging experience that's sensory friendly and efficient.
