KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS ONLINE
Over the last number of weeks, we have had to change how we live, work and most importantly how we stay in touch with family and friends. There are many ways technology can help us continue to connect with our community and link in with the services we need. Philip from our Dundalk office has created a number of useful guides to help staying connected a little easier. A series of Tech Tip guides to accompany each of the applications below is available here.
If you don’t have an Apple device, WhatsApp can be a great alternative. Features allow users to video chat, voice call, online message and one of their most popular features, group chat! All of this is free of charge if you have an internet connection and will work on a variety of devices.
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. Zoom has a feature-rich, mobile app for both iOS and Android, allowing you to virtually connect from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Netflix Party is a new way to watch Netflix with your friends online. Netflix Party synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favourite Netflix shows. It is available on chrome browsers on desktop or laptop computers.
