Published on April 30th, 2020

You’re looking for ways to stay connected during COVID-19? You’re in the right place!

By this point, you’ve tried every single thought you have to socialize from afar, but you are fresh out of ideas.

There are billions of app users out there, full of chats and games that we keep you connected with those you miss most.

But it can be challenging to navigate all the cool chat apps.

We’ve got your back, however. Here are the most fun chat apps and socialization secrets you have to know.

1. Ecards

Looking to ditch the norm and add flare to your social distancing? Try creating an ecard for free. Ecards are virtual postcards and greeting cards to send to friends and family. Try adding things like:

  • Flash animation
  • Photos
  • Video

With their high versatility, you can customize the color and content of each ecard to a single individual or send a common card to everyone on your contact list.

Not to mention ecards help reduce our paper waste and carbon footprint as a great alternative to traditional cards.



2. Zoom

Zoom.us

Zoom is one of the new video apps that has gained popularity in the last few months. This inventive chat app allows you to turn your microphone and video settings on and off, record the video, share your screen, and invite others to the video chat.

The free version allows you to host up to one hundred people in the same chat so, it’s perfect for large family and friend gatherings.

Don’t want fellow chat members to see your background? With Zoom, you can change your virtual background to one of your own photos or a choice of default backdrops provided by Zoom.

You can also add zest to your call by playing Zoom games like:

  • Cards Against Humanity
  • Bingo
  • Scattergories
  • Trivia
  • Heads up!
  • Pictionary

Don’t forget to check out the on-screen whiteboard and meeting analytics features for video calls with your work buddies!



3. Houseparty

Want a more relaxed environment? Check out Houseparty. Houseparty is a great app choice to use with a close group of friends. It only allows for a maximum of eight people to join the video call.

The app has built-in safety features making it the perfect option for younger crowds.

Texts, photos, and videos are deleted after twenty-four hours but you can still screenshot items.

Users should always use responsible practices when using the app.

Another great feature is Houseparty allows you to integrate those from your phone address book right into the app.

In addition to the video chat, the app lets you text with members at the same time.



4. Fun Chat Apps

Being quarantined without those you care about can be challenging and frustrating. Escape from social isolation and don’t forget to reach out to others. You’re not alone.

What are you waiting for? Fun chat apps await!
