Many people have turned to video calls with family to keep in touch while staying apart, but don’t forget your friends! Texting has its merits, but a face-to-face chat always feels more fulfilling. You don’t have to limit it to just chatting — there are plenty of games to play while in a video call. Games such as 20 Questions (or 21 Questions), Never Have I Ever, and charades are easily played via video call.
If games aren’t your thing, set up calls to teach each other something new: if one of your friends loves the way you make a certain dish, make your own personal “cooking show” by holding a video call while you cook. Throw your own painting party by gathering materials — and friends, via video — and following along to a tutorial while chatting. Compare your creations afterwards and award someone the winner!
