A great way to socialize remotely with your friends and family is to video chat with them. There are many free resources for remote work meetings or just virtual happy hours.
The free Basic Plan includes: Unlimited number of meetings (one meeting at a time); No expiration date; No time limit for 1-on-1 meetings; 40 minute limit on meetings with 3-100 people
Free for a single room – sign up for an individual account, create a URL room and share it with friends! (Formerly appear.in)
