How to connect with loved ones during Thanksgiving when you can’t travel to be with them

Being separated from family during the holidays can be hard, but there are ways to stay connected.

A major outcome of the pandemic was learning how to remain connected to family and friends, but from a distance. Millions worked from home and became comfortable with Zoom.

According to News Channel 10, video calls and Zoom are one of the best ways to stay connected with loved ones you can’t be with. Not only can you see and speak with people, but doing it is free. There are numerous options as well, like Zoom, FaceTime, and Skype.


FaceTime is only available to iPhone users, so if you use an Android it won’t be an option. Zoom is available on many different devices, so even grandparents can try to get the hang of it. If users don’t have the app they can use Zoom right through their internet browser. A free call on Zoom is limited to 40 minutes.

Skype doesn’t require software or an app to use. You can send your loved one a link through Meet Now. The time limit for a free call through Skype is 4 hours with even better video quality settings than what Zoom offers.

No matter what your preference is, there should be an option that will fit everyone’s needs.
