Zoom is the app keeping everybody in touch amid orders that we stay apart. The video conferencing app allows for video calling with up to 1,000 video participants and 10,000 viewers.

Choose to use the app with or without video. Mute yourself if there are distracting noises in your home. If you're feeling funky, you can also change your background. The background options range from under water, to your favorite sports team logo, to any custom image you'd like to add.

Zoom can be used on your computer, tablet or phone. This way you can join a call even if you're on the go, by phoning in, rather than showing yourself on a video the whole time.

At KATC we've loved zoom for chatting with our team, but it's also great for families and friend groups to catch up, whether isolating across the street or across the country
