Sure, this holiday season is going to be a little bit different from years past. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t have some fun with your friends and family! Here’s a quick list from IDENTITY Miami of some of the best apps for virtual hangouts, and a guide on how to make the most of your time together!
So, What Exactly Are the Best Platforms?
There are plenty of apps perfect for connecting with your friends and family virtually. Connect with 24 of your friends on a video call through Google Hangouts. If everyone has an Apple device, group calls are easy to set up on FaceTime, with up to 32 people. Have a bigger party? Skype can host up to 100 people for free on nearly all devices.
How Do I Make the Party Festive?
If you’re looking to give your party a theme, why not do a virtual gift exchange? It’s relatively easy to pull off and works much the same way it would if you were doing it in person. It also helps to dress the part – both yourself (bring out those ugly holiday sweaters) and your room. Discover decorative pieces at Dragonfly Thrift Boutique. Looking to get fancy? Pick up a festive floral arrangement from Pablo’s Flowers. And don’t neglect your sweet tooth – find something delish to snack on at CAO Bakery & Cafe.
How Do I Break the Ice?
Don’t neglect the power of a good conversation. If you’re mixing friend groups and need a conversation starter, keep it simple: Ask everyone what’s their favorite holiday movie? Favorite songs? Desserts? Listen closely, and with curiosity, and the rest will come naturally. Just have fun!
