Come back often to get a list of apps that allow you and your loved ones to stay connected during the holidays no matter the distance!

WhatsApp:

No matter where you are for the holidays this year, WhatsApp — the free and easy-to-use messaging app with over 1 billion users around the world — can help you stay in touch with family and friends so you never miss a moment. Whether it’s grandma or grandpa, your best friend overseas, your kids who couldn’t come home, or your long-distance significant other, you can do more than simply text or call your loved ones—you can share the holiday cheer face-to-face with WhatsApp’s new video calling feature.

Here are some of the features:

  • Simplicity: It only takes two taps to make a video call, and it works reliably on different cellular networks, as well as over WiFi. Additionally, it’s compatible with iPhone, Android and Windows phones.
  • Switch it up: Between the front view and rearview camera, in case other family members would like to say “hi” or you want to show off a newly opened gift. It’ll also work in full-screen landscape mode, too, no more black bars on the sides.
  • Multi-task: You can minimize the video call without ending it, so that you can check and/or respond to other messages in WhatsApp.
  • Privacy: WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted, meaning conversations are secure and private. This includes all the information users share including photos, videos, documents, voice messages, and now video calls.
