This week on Tech 24, we take a look at how the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the workplace. From video conferences to remote platforms, the crisis has forced many people to rapidly adopt new technologies to work from home during lockdown.

From one week to another, hundreds of thousands of people around the world were forced to start working remotely and many had to suddenly adopt digital technologies. We dig into the topic with Benedict Evans, an independent analyst and the founder of the renowned blog by the same name. 

Our in-house expert Dhananjay Khadilkar will also help us understand how the big names in tech intend to surf the wave of telecommuting to reshape the future of work. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, for instance, has announced that tens of thousands of jobs will permanently shift to remote work by the end of the year.

And in Test 24, Dhananjay will showcase three cameras: the Instax Mini 11, which can instantly measure brightness and adjust shutter speed; plus the Realipix Square S by Agfa, which is set to seduce influencers on Instagram as it can take photos and print them in a square format.
