Elevator music isn't quite doing the trick? Try these lo-fi beats instead


“Cancel out the pre-meeting awkward silence with this lo-fi beats playlist.” Illustration published on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020.

With classes and work moving online amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom is a part of our everyday lives. And with it comes the stale awkwardness of waiting for everyone to join the Zoom call.

Instead of sitting in silence, spice up your Zoom meetings with this calming mix of low-fidelity, or lo-fi, songs. Whether you use them for background music or to relieve the discomfort of a fully muted call, these songs are sure to do the trick.
