Sofa so boring? Try these new ways to keep app with your pals

It feels as if we have been social distancing forever, though realistically, it’s only been about a month or so here in SA. And as of March 26 2020, we’re under full lockdown for 21 days. That’s a lot of days to go without seeing the family or friends. But never fear, big tech is here. Covid-19 is showing us people are quick to adapt and adapt to apps they will. Despite the bad rep that tech sometimes has (you know, privacy issues), there’s one thing it certainly has got right – now more than ever – and that is keeping us connected.

You know Skype, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp and Slack, but as tech evolves, so too do apps. These are the ones you need to download now. Happy virtual mingling!
