I know, I know..we actually can’t physically be together, but we’re so lucky to have the technology that we do. There are countless ways to stay connected to friends and family during this time. I’ve highlighted a couple of my favorite ways to stay social below.
Houseparty has been a big part of my quarantined life. This app allows to play different games with one or more of your friends. You can get a big group together to play trivia games or just use it for one-on-one video chats. I highly recommend downloading it!
I was introduced to the Marco Polo app by my sister. This app allows you to take video messages throughout the day and send them to your friends and family. It’s basically like texting but solely with videos. It’s a fun way to stay in touch and keep friends and family updated on how you’re doing.
Google Hangouts has been the go-to app between my friends and I during this time. It’s so easy to get a bunch of people together and the functionality makes it so you can easily see everyone in your group.
The Monopoly app kept me and my friends busy for hours the other night. Instead of the standard virtual HH, we decided to play monopoly as we knew it would be really fun and would pass a lot of time. Three hours later, we were right. Although I lost, I would play this again in a heartbeat. It was fun to be able to enjoy a classic game with friends.
Like I said earlier, we are so lucky to have access to this technology to keep us connected to friends and family. I hope my suggestions make it even more fun!
