The safest way to see your loved ones may be in your pocket. The progression of the epidemic of the new coronavirus in France pushes us to keep more and more distance from each other.

Between teleworking and stopping visits to the frail and the elderly, computers and smartphones are sometimes the last space to allow us to talk eye to eye.

Skype, the dean of these new means of communication, was created in 2003. It is therefore possible to use it without problem from an old computer. To do this, simply connect to the Internet, surf the site of the same name, download and install the software.

There is also an app of the same name for smartphones, which must be installed from the Play Store, if you are using an Android device, or from the Apple App Store, for iPhone and iPad.

Once these small steps have been taken, Skype allows you to make audio and video calls and chat in writing with any user of the application, which you can easily add to your favorites so as not to get lost. in his repertoire. It is also possible to leave messages, including video, like an answering machine, or even to organize videoconferences.

This is also the case for FaceTime, directly installed on all recent iPhone and iPad. To use it, however, you must log in with your Apple ID. FaceTime being developed by the apple brand, the application is inaccessible on Android devices.

WhatsApp, it allows you to communicate with all the contacts on a phone, provided they have also downloaded the application.
