Hey, party people! Do you need some helpful and fun online tools to use at your next event? If so, we have got you covered. We’ll be discussing the most useful and enjoyable online tools that will make your party a hit with all of your guests. So get ready for some good times ahead because here are the best tools for parties!
Online Invitations for Parties
Party invitations are one of the most common reasons for using online invitation software. Many people prefer to use online invites because they can be sent out quickly and easily, even on a smartphone or tablet device. It is also possible to include multimedia elements such as video clips in an email invite so that guests have more information about what your party will entail before deciding whether or not they want to attend! With easy-to-use online tools, you can create stunningly designed virtual party invitations with logos and pictures from picture libraries in minutes rather than hours. If you need help getting started there is always a huge collection of free designs included when you sign up for an account which should give you some ideas.
Most of us have seen those fun dance challenges that all the people on TikTok try and replicate (often with hilarious results), so why load up the app and try one yourself! Yes, even grandma can have a little dance and who knows, you could well end up going viral.
Food Delivery Apps
These apps make it easier than ever to get what you want without having to spend any more time on your feet. With all of the different food options available, like Italian or Chinese, ordering online is quick and easy making these great for large groups that can’t agree on one place to eat.
Finding the perfect restaurant is simplified with these apps. The restaurants are reviewed by customers just like you, so you can get the scoop on what to expect before ordering. You can also look at pictures of their food to see if it’s something that would satisfy your craving or not. If there aren’t enough reviews yet for a particular place you always have the option of getting a refund before you have to pay. If there aren’t any restaurants that meet your needs near you, it’s also easy to request one and add them if there aren’t any around.
Houseparty (Video Party)
Maybe someone couldn’t make it to your party, or maybe they just live in a different country, but with the social networking app Houseparty they can feel as if they are there with you. It’s simple to use, quick to setup and up to 8 people can join the same video conference!
Facebook Messenger Rooms (Video Party)
Much like ‘Houseparty’ before it, this is another way for absent friends and family to join in the fun. Only this time up to 50 people are allowed to join a chat room with some being just text chat and some being video. And if you really want you can meet some of them in VR as well which is a great option if you have the equipment.
We are not talking about gameplay videos, I am talking about actual games! Yes, there are various quizzes and games to play simply by clicking ‘play’ on a video. Games like ‘Name That Tune’ and hundreds of quizzes that cover just about every subject you could possibly want. You can even make your own games up like name that YouTuber, or even name the song with music that you like.
Print & Play Games
There are several fun online tools you can use at parties. The first is a web app called Printable Bingo cards. This site allows you to create your bingo card for free using their easy-to-use interface. You can search for words or select from multiple categories, then print the game on either regular paper or card stock.
Two other great sites that allow users to make custom word games are Word Lab and Quiz Maker. These websites also have similar interfaces where you type in the requested information, print it out, and cut along the lines so each player receives one copy of all possible answers. If there’s no computer available but someone has a smartphone with internet access, try creating cards together as a group!
You can also make use of generators which are beneficial for several purposes. They make game development easier, and they offer advantages like more creativity, improved organization within the group, and the ability to test new gameplay concepts with less work. You can use a number generator when choosing a player or which game you would like to play. This will save you a lot of time, allowing you more freedom in designing gameplay features.
Spotify (Music Playlist)
You can create an amazing music playlist with all of the guests’ favourite songs! For example, if you are having people over for dinner or hosting a party for your child’s birthday, it is easy to find out what kind of music they like and then put together playlists that everyone will be able to dance along with.
With the right party playlist, everyone will be on their feet dancing! Spotify has playlists for every type of get-together. Whether you need to set a romantic mood or get rowdy with your friends there’s something on this streaming music service for you and anyone else at your event. Just search by genre, decade, activity (like a workout), or mood to find the perfect songs. There are also themed playlists that were created specifically for events like weddings or anniversaries, so you can easily get in the spirit of these special occasions with music!
When using Spotify make sure that you check the privacy settings so that only those invited know which tunes are playing throughout the night. This prevents any awkward moments where someone might not appreciate hearing their least favourite song played on repeat! Another thing about this website is users can follow each other, which makes it fun because you can share songs between people.
Zoom (Screen Sharing)
Zoom is a great app that allows you to communicate with others over the internet. You can host an online meeting or conference call within seconds, which makes it perfect for hosting your game night without having to spend money on snacks and drinks!
The only thing better than playing games in person is doing so from across the world and Zoom makes this possible. You can play games with friends or people you’ve never met before, allowing for some unforgettable experiences!
There are also tons of different options to choose from depending on what kind of game night it will be. For example, if you want everyone to be able to see each other there’s a screen sharing option that allows you all to see the same thing at the same time. There’s also a chat feature that allows you to communicate with everyone who is attending without having to repeat yourself or talk over each other!
GeoGuessr (Explore the World)
There are literally thousands of quizzes to be found on GeoGuessr and all you have to do is guess where an image is taken. Based on the 360 images from Google maps you will be exploring the world, winning points for accuracy and even learning something new along the way when you get it wrong. Some of the views on this app are simply amazing and could well trigger happy memories in people as they play along.
Online tools can not replace live human interactions, but they are a great addition to the experience. People at parties will appreciate that you have made an effort and used some of these amazing online tools to make their party even better. The food delivery apps may be especially helpful for those who find themselves stuck at work or unable to leave home due to weather conditions. Such services allow people to order takeout from one’s favourite restaurant right before a party starts so there is no need to worry about cooking or scrambling around in search of a late-night dinner option. Whatever tool you use, it should help your guests enjoy the moment rather than having them worrying about details such as what time the subway closes tonight.
