2021 has come and it may seem to be the start of things going back to normal. A handful of office operations may have resumed, but that doesn’t mean working from home stops or becomes out of trend. With the advancement of new technologies that keep many safe and productive in their homes, working from home will remain even after the pandemic ends.
Here are four work-from-home tech trends that will stay in 2021.
5G Internet Connection
When working from home became essential in 2020, a fast and stable Internet connection is crucial for productivity. 3G and 4G connections have helped many professionals accomplish tasks, browse efficiently, stream on different platforms, and connect with colleagues and supervisors. And since working from home will remain even after COVID-19 ends, the need for 5G Internet connection becomes more vital.
Through 5G connection, pages won’t only load faster. Virtual and augmented reality, as well as cloud-based platforms, will run more quickly through 5G. Confidential company information may also be kept under lock and key and can still be accessed almost any time and anywhere.
Virtual and Augmented Reality
With the efficiency of a 5G Internet connection, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) can be used to carry out tasks in situations where viral transmissions would likely happen under normal circumstances. For example, real estate industries may use VR and AR to effectively showcase their new projects to clients even from far away. Interested buyers may take tours of premier properties like Anvaya Cove remotely in their homes. Meeting presentations will be more interactive and provide more detailed examples of products to international colleagues. In short, both VR and AR will springboard many industries into remote yet efficient viewing while ensuring business continuity.
Cloud storage is another essential part of the new normal lives of businesses and professionals. Sure, flash drives and external drives are portable storage devices to keep your files safe and secure. However, they can get corrupted, and if damaged, you may risk losing all your important documents. Many establishments resort to using cloud storage or drives to keep all records and confidential files secure and away from prying eyes. Various features of 5G connection may help you use security aspects to further protect your documents from getting hacked, stolen, or deleted. Some features may even help you retrieve old files that may have been deleted or corrupted.
Many content creators have used drones to take breathtaking shots for their videos and social media feeds. These devices efficiently take aerial and 360-degree views of buildings, streets, and tourist attractions such as Morong’s and Boracay’s resorts. Real estate professionals may use drones to take all-around pictures and videos of their listings to show new properties to potential buyers. While it may seem inconvenient to buy a drone to take beautiful shots, the resulting images and videos may help you take your content to reach a larger market outside your home base and usual audience.
As technology advances continue to become more vital to our daily lives, efficient devices and reliable internet connectivity make working from home more conducive to productivity. And even after COVID-19 ceases, these four tech trends will be a part of your future.
