Playing party games, card games and board games over video chat is easier than you might think. We have created some simple tutorials to help you set up the video chat software as quick and trouble free as possible.
The following programs were chosen because they make it easy to invite anyone to your video call using a sharable link. This means there will be less hassle getting everyone signing into an account just to be on the call.
There are many other programs available that may be easier for you to use (especially if everyone invited has the same app). Eg. Facetime, Facebook messanger, Discord, Whats App, Google Duo etc.
You will need a free Skype account to host. Download the app on your laptop or smartphone. If you already have Skype installed, you may need to update your Skype to see the latest Meet Now function.
Select the “Meet Now” button
You'll get a call link and a Share invite button (A.) to easily to invite others. Copy this link and send it to your friends and family via email or message. Once you're ready, set your call to audio or video and select the Start call button (B.). You can also create a meeting directly from the web.
