What do you do when you can’t step out and meet your friends? Well, they say, necessity is the mother of innovation and friendship is the most necessary thing we need to get through life.
You know, you need a shoulder to cry on, someone who listens to you and makes you understand things when you can’t, someone to share your jokes with and someone who’s going to be there for you no matter what.
Such relationships need to be maintained, don’t you think? But there are more ways of maintaining it than just meeting up.
Let me show you!
1. Host a ‘Netflix Party’
Google Chrome built an extension called Netflix Party, which allows users to watch their favourite shows with others remotely at the same time. Well, it might take some time to decide what to watch. So, I suggest you plan well. Or like they say, for every problem, there’s a: Rock, paper, scissors, solution.
Many gaming platforms like Ludo King (tell me about it), Catan, Psych, Call Of Duty and many others allow users to play with each other over the Internet. So, get ready to have a full-on gaming night. Warning: You will no longer have multiple friend circles. You will introduce everyone to everyone.
3. Video chat
Use Skype, Zoom, Team, Whatsapp, FaceTime or Google Hangouts to video chat with your friends and feel connected. Pro tip: Your friends might take a screenshot of it and post it online, so, dress up a little because video calls have no filters.
4. Live online shows
A lot of famous artists are hosting live concerts on Instagram or YouTube. Ask your buddies to get on the live stream and headbang remotely.
What else do we need? Free concerts for life!
5.Try Instagram’s new ‘Co-watching’ feature
Instagram has recently launched a new feature which will enable users to co-watch posts and content on its app while video chatting. You can browse through your feed and share your liked or saved posts. Have you tried it yet?
So, now that you’ve found ways to maintain your yaari. It’s time to celebrate it with a glass of McDowell’s.
