Kick out those communication cobwebs with these alternative ways to keep in touch

By Virgin TV Edit

Can you remember the last time you said yes to a Zoom quiz? Neither can we. Instead, we’re thinking of increasingly creative ways to get out of virtual game nights (we have to wash our hair, our dog ate our… laptop, we’d rather just starfish on our bed) – if people are even hosting them anymore.

Video chat fatigue has dominated the start of 2021, but our desire to connect with others is at an all-time high. So how, you may ask, can we still bond when we don’t have the bandwidth?


Check out our step-by-step guide to alternative ways of communicating, all of which do not require turning your camera on (for one, it’s optional). If all else fails, there’s always snail mail, and that’s bound to put a smile on anyone’s face.
