Zoom rose to popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic. I saw many experts in tech shows on my Charter Spectrum cable promoting the use of Zoom and similar apps. Companies, primarily, started using the platform to bridge the gap between employees and management. However, now Zoom has become one of the primary means for most people to connect with one another. The app comes with many interactive features to facilitate users in having a smooth call experience. It’s quite similar to other popular chatting and calling apps such as Skype and Microsoft Teams.

The market competition among apps providing online calling video conferencing capabilities is quite fierce. Zoom, therefore, is putting in efforts to attract more users while retaining their existing ones. Now, you can even play games during a meeting on Zoom. Many popular games are present on the platform. 20 Questions, Bingo, and Trivia are some of the most popular ones. Read about similar games in the following passages and learn how to play them on Zoom.

20 Questions

20 Questions is a popular Zoom game aimed at ensuring that you have an excellent leisure time with your friends and family. Even if you are separated by geographical distance, you can create a Zoom meeting room and invite your friends to play this highly interactive game. You must have played this game in your childhood. I remember playing it with my parents and siblings. The game is quite simple. You shift from one person to the other and ask them 20 questions. Make sure to select interesting ones to give them a hard time. However, you should refrain from asking embarrassing questions.

If you need some ideas, head over to Google and search for the most interesting questions. You’ll be able to find many blogs sharing the best questions to ask. I’m sure you will have an excellent time reconnecting with your distant friend or family member while playing this game.

Bingo

It’s a game that has stood the test of time and still remains popular among children and adults alike. We have all played this game in our childhood and on Zoom it’s not very different either. Instead of a pen and pad, you have a digital “box” to play Bingo. Invite your friends to a Zoom meeting room and play this highly interactive game. You can even set a winning prize so that the game becomes more enjoyable.

Scattergories

Scattergories is a fun game that Zoom users of all ages can play. It comes with very simple rules. One of the participants gets to choose a letter. Next, everybody has to find a word in five unique categories starting with that letter. Make sure to come up with unique names so that you can have a higher score than the rest. This game is quite interesting and will help you to improve your vocabulary and creative skills as well.

Trivia

Trivia is one of the best games to play on Zoom. You can play it to improve your general knowledge. Invite your friends and challenge them. Make sure to make a list of questions beforehand so that the competition is intense. When someone answers a question incorrectly, make sure to tease them over the voice call. A little fun during this game will do no harm!

Name, Place, Animal, Thing

Another popular game that we have all played in our childhood. There’s no doubt that this game can get quite intense at times. It is fairly easy and simple to play. One of the participants selects a letter. Next, all the other participants have to write the name of a popular work related to a name, place, animal, or thing starting with that letter. As the alphabets start reducing, the game becomes more intense and competitive. You will need to work on your general knowledge to win with ease.

These are some of the best games on Zoom right now that you should try. You can play them with your siblings even at home. They are quite engaging and interactive and will allow you to have quality time with your loved ones.
