WhatsApp coronavirus Christmas connectivity tips:

Synchronise presents over a video call – with up to 8 participants

With families celebrating apart in 2020, there is even more of a need for us to stay connected this Christmas.

WhatsApp said: “It is easy to get the whole family on a video call while opening your presents so you don’t miss the look on your grandchildren’s, siblings’, mum’s or dad’s face when they open THAT present they’ve wanted all year.”

To start a call, tap the calls tab at the bottom of your screen and then press the call icon in the top right corner or your screen.

Next tap ‘New Group Call’ and then simply add up to seven of your loved ones from your contacts list and then let the unwrapping commence.
