Looking for games you can play with your friends online using Zoom? There’s really no limit to the possibilities, but it can be tough to come up with an idea when there are so many options out there. A cool little fact you can share with your friends is that your screen shows a reflection of you, but what your friends see is the actual you. You can test this by holding up a magazine to the screen. Your friends will be able to read it but it will be backward for you.
But there is more to do over a Zoom call besides catching up and sharing cool facts. Here are seven games to play with your Zoom group.
Zoom is great to play games on with friends because of how easily it makes staying connected, and fun features like its Whiteboard. This makes playing Pictionary easy with anyone wherever they are!
