Keeping up your social momentum

3 minute read

We’ve all had to adjust to changes in our social life, schedules, and meetups. When it comes to connecting with others, maybe you’re still finding your equilibrium. Here are some ways you can have more fun with your virtual connections.

Playing up the fun with Teams

As our social lives continue to evolve and shift, maintaining authentic social connections, whether in-person or virtual, continues to be essential for maintaining quality of life. These tools in Windows can help bring more excitement to your online meetups.

Microsoft Whiteboard app with games
Using Microsoft Teams for virtual game nights can be a great way to have fun and stay connected to friends and loved ones. When you’re in the mood to play, the fun can go for hours with 30-hour video calling. Get even more out of your game night by using digital whiteboards to adapt your favorite games for the screen. Create boards and add notes, text, images, reactions, and more for an interactive way to play. Learn how to get started with Whiteboard.

Create more of a shared experience for your online party or theme night using Together mode. It will help participants feel closer to each other by bringing everyone into the same virtual room. You can still have a great time online and, even with large groups, everyone can enjoy from the comfort of wherever they are.

Saying it with feeling

Sometimes, using chat in Microsoft Teams is the most convenient way to stay in the mix socially, whether it’s with individuals, family, or groups of friends. But sometimes the tone isn’t clear, so remember you’ve got more than typed words at your fingertips. If you’re trying to express yourself in a lively chat group, you can use emojis, memes, GIFs, and in-chat animations to do it with flair.

Getting together virtually

Streaming your favorite movies and shows can be a great way to share some laughs and good times. If it’s movie night with friends but everybody wants to stay home, use Teleparty in Microsoft Edge for a remote watch party that syncs video playback and allows you to chat. That way, you won’t miss a beat and you can still host a watch party to remember.

Keeping it close-knit

These tools give you a few easy ways to make sure you’re nurturing social connections when in the virtual space and having a good time online. Try them out today and see how they enhance your social life.
