Top Apps to Keep You in Touch with Friends and Family

People Doing a Video Chat | Veteran Car DonationsWhether you suddenly miss your buddies or you’re on a business trip wondering how your kids are doing back home, you can always turn to technology to connect with them.

Fortunately, with today’s high-tech gadgets, we have numerous apps that we can rely on to stay in touch with our friends and family. To make it even better, most of these apps aren’t just for calling and texting — they also come with fun features to entertain you and your dear ones!

Our list below shows five popular apps that can help you communicate with your favorite people in times of loneliness, happiness, or boredom:

  1. WhatsApp

What’s great about WhatsApp is that it’s super convenient and accessible for just about anyone with a smartphone and internet. You can easily connect with your contacts through text and call (voice and video). You can also use it to send photos, videos, voicemails, and GIFs. Group chat is also available, making it easier for you and your closest pals to catch up with each other.

  1. Skype

Having been around since 2003, Skype has become one of the world’s most well-known social platforms. Although it allows users to interact through text and call, most prefer to use the app to video chat with friends and family members. You can even host an audio or a video conference with up to 50 people, and as long as you have a stable internet connection, you can connect from anywhere.

  1. Marco Polo

If you’re a fan of Snapchat, we have a huge feeling you’ll love Marco Polo, perhaps even more. Like the former, this app allows you to create and send video notes, which means that you don’t have to go on a lengthy live chat. What gives it an edge over Snapchat is that the videos don’t disappear automatically, and you can record for as long as you want.

  1. Zoom

Although Zoom came out in 2011, it only drew worldwide attention when lockdown and quarantine measures were imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The app is mainly for professional use. Users can hold meetings through video conference calls. It also includes a screen-sharing feature, which makes it easier for employees to share their presentations. More and more people are now downloading this social app to have fun group video chats with their friends and family. Like the other platforms mentioned here, Zoom can be used anywhere and anytime.

  1. Houseparty

What makes Houseparty an incredibly fascinating social app is that it provides users plenty of entertainment options to choose from. Aside from the usual messaging, face-to-face calling, and sharing of memes or videos, this app offers a multitude of activities that can make you feel as if you’re at a virtual party. With games like Pictionary, Head’s Up, and trivia quizzes, you definitely won’t be running out of exciting things to do here with your friends.
