Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats – and it lets you record those sessions to view later.

It’s a great way to stay in touch with friends, family and your fellow Troopers.  Instructions for using zoom are below and you can join here.

How to use Zoom

Normally, you might video chat with individual families or people separately, but, now you can Group FaceTime with (almost) everyone at once. … Keep in mind that this only works for devices that support FaceTime, so Android users won’t be able to join.

For more information on facetime check our this guide.

Skype is for connecting with the people that matter most in your life and work. It’s built for both one-on-one and group conversations and works wherever you are – via mobile, PC, Xbox and Alexa. Skype messaging and HD voice and video calling will help you share experiences and get things done with others.

With Skype, you can have meetings and create great things with your friends, family, fellow troopes and workgroup, share a story or celebrate a birthday with friends and family, and learn a new skill or hobby with a teacher. It’s free to use Skype – to send messages and have audio and video calls with groups of up to 50 people!
