Family and Friends Video Chat Programs

With much of the world complying with a general stay-at-home order, every major activity and connection with people outside their homes has temporarily ceased for an undesignated period of time. Families not only have lost work or had to learn to work at home, but students are converting to school online, while any groups’ activities are also streaming or replaying on YouTube, social media videos, and websites. Our virtual world grew a lot bigger, while our intimate personal connections became almost non-existent. Planning for work-life balance in this era of remote everything has changed.

Balancing Virtual Personal Life

It’s easy to recognize that people who want to keep their designated “non-essential” jobs, will hopefully be able to figure out how to accommodate working from home. Companies recognize the benefits of converting to online conferencing as soon as possible if they want to stay in business. The fact is, your personal life also needs to go on. While social distancing sounds like a dream come true for some, even introverts might benefit from personal contact with others to ward off depression and loneliness. Families and individuals have many choices for video chatting, and some of these platforms have been around for a long time.

  • Skype – Considered the original and most successful video chat platform out there, Microsoft’s Skype is well-known and simple to use. It’s available for PC or mobile devices, including Android and iPhone, unlike other apps which often cannot connect people on the separate platforms.
  • Facetime – iPhone’s primary video chat app which cannot connect with Android or PC users. While that does limit its usefulness, it offers clear and powerful audio and video features which cater to the desired qualifications held by those who are loyal to the iPhone & Mac brand and products.
  • Facebook Messenger – Facebook’s video messenger has access to the largest social media platform, and now it’s available without Facebook on the Facebook Messenger app. When data breaches and collection through Facebook became news, many vowed not to use Facebook Messenger. Over the few years since that time, however, their user number continues to climb. 
  • What’s App Messenger – originally created to share photos, limited chat and status updates, What’s App has a reputation for the ability to exchange very large data files. Owned by Facebook, over a billion people use this platform for video calling. Though simple and having fewer features, it’s known for stability.
