I know we have facetime, what's app and Skype.
There is a free video conference tool that can be used called www.zoom.us

From what I can make out it splits your screen so you can see and speak to everyone at the same time. Good for our present times.

We had a 3 way party tonight with 2 other couples ( sounds rude ) but on FaceTime.
Our best mate has his birthday so we agreed at 1700 we would link up, drink in hand, and we did, very successfully. It was really good fun to catch up as we hadn’t seen him since Xmas
I even broke my drink sabbatical. Normally I have a month off in Feb ( shortest month) a habit I had from work as we had our annual medicals in early March but as we were away for part of Feb , I did it for March.
Thank goodness for modern technology .
Cheers
Ken
