Your Challenge today is:
Have a Virtual Movie night.
Choose a Holiday favorite and invite people to join you virtually.
Today’s challenge is perfect timing with the second wave of COVID-19 locking areas down, and many staying home, Virtual Movie Night is a fun way to connect with your family and friends ‘virtually’.
There are a few ways you can have a Virtual Movie Night, here are a few options:
Teleparty (formerly Netflix Party) is a new way to watch TV with your friends online. Create Teleparties in seconds right on the Netflix, Hulu, Disney and HBO websites to stream thousands of great shows together with friends. Click here to learn more: www.netflixparty.com
Kast is your shared TV in your virtual living room. A real-time video sharing app with an always evolving content library, screen capture, voice, text, and video chat makes it easy to connect with friends wherever they are. Movie nights, games, a virtual house party – Kast is the ultimate place to watch together, play together, be together. Click here to learn more: https://kast.gg
Zoom allows you to set up a date and a time for your event in advance, then you can share a link to those invited to your Virtual Movie Night. When it is time, simply log into your Zoom account, wait for your people, then start sharing your screen on your desktop, go to the menu at the bottom of your Zoom screen once you’re in your video call and hit “Share Screen.” This will prompt a pop-up that asks you which screen you want to share. Be sure to tap on the window that’s playing the movie. Learn more about Zoom, go to: http://Zoom.us
There are a lot of other options but ultimately whichever you decide, it is about staying connected with those we cannot physically be with. It is also a great way for kids to “hang” with their friends over the extended holidays.
We want to hear about your Virtual Movie Nights. Did any of the suggestions we offered prove helpful? Which Movie did you watch? Snap a photo of your Virtual Movie Night and share about your experience completing this challenge on your Facebook.
