COVID-19: Stay Home And Take Advantage Of Technology.

We’ve seen the growing numbers and many of us have been asked to stay home to curb the spread of COVID-19. It is important that we adhere to public health guidelines during this time.

Being cooped up at home isn’t easy as the walls start to close in as the days go by; but, we can do this, together!

Here are a few steps you can take to ensure you stay safe, connected and entertained.

 

Virtual Meetings are the way to go.

We understand the need for business meetings, however choose virtual meetings instead of physical meetings (Remember, health is wealth).

There are various applications that can help facilitate online meetings. They include Zoom, Skype, GoToMeeting and many others. ipNX FOS has got you covered by providing reliable internet connection so you don’t experience buffering, lagging or poor connection during your audio or video conference calls.

 

Movies, gaming, online competitions? Keep the whole family entertained.    

Did I hear you say movie night?

For entertainment options, do not forget to subscribe to internet-based media services like Netflix, irokoTv, Showbox and so many more. To promote family bonding, you can stream family movies and make a movie night out of it. Let me hear you say “yay” for Unlimited Internet.

You can also enter into family-friendly competitions on social video sharing platforms like TikTok and Thriller. This might be a good time to show the kids you used to be a hot stepper on the dance floor.

How about gaming? You may not be able to go anywhere with the family but you can step into new adventures by playing online games. Here are a few gaming options to get you started:

i. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Platform - Nintendo Switch - for up to 8 players.)

ii. Heads Up (Platforms – iOS and Android - for as many players as you want.)

iii. Overcooked 2 (Platforms - Nintendo Switch, Playstation, Xbox, PC and Mac - for 1 – 4 players.)

 

Keep your loved ones closer.

Connecting with loved ones can be virtual as well. Take advantage of social applications like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and Skype. Try video conference calls via Zoom as well. You can break bread together virtually by asking your loved ones that aren’t with you to call in during dinner. Get the conversation flowing and share tips on how you get through the day.

You can also try out VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calls. ipNX Voice Service offers Unlimited free calls to all ipNX users. You also enjoy amazing international and local call rates to keep friends and family closer.

 

Remember to practice Online Safety.

i. Make online purchases from secure sites.

ii. Use strong passwords.

iii. Educate your kids on the pros and cons of the internet and as much as you can, limit screen time.

 

Don’t forget to wash your hands regularly and follow public health guidelines.

We will get through this together.
