During these challenging times, it is not only our resources that are being affected by the ‘enhanced community quarantine’, but also our capability to communicate with our loved ones.
Thanks to technology, though, anyone can make their family or friends feel loved despite being away—with features available to all, like video calls.
Our favorite celebrities show us how they remain in touch with others using the video call feature of different apps. Scroll down for more!
