Updated: May 18, 2021


So, you have an important achievement or milestone to celebrate, such as a birthday, or you just want to socialize? It's time to throw a Zoom get-together! Just because you can't have all of your friends and family together in person doesn't mean you shouldn't have a party.

People are increasingly joining the Zoom group bandwagon, hosting online parties and hiring virtual performers. Here's what you need to know about hosting a Zoom party if you want to follow in their footsteps.



What does a Zoom party entail?

Simply put, a Zoom party is a virtual get-together held on a desktop, laptop, or mobile device using the Zoom video conferencing software.

Although other video chat apps such as Google Hangouts, FaceTime, and Skype are available, Zoom has become the most popular platform for celebrating birthdays and special occasions, as well as hosting online social activities such as play dates, cocktail sessions, and virtual movie nights.


Why is it so common to throw a Zoom party?

With social isolation and international travel restrictions imposed as a result of COVID-19, it's critical to keep in touch with friends and family, and hosting a Zoom party is a perfect way to do so. Even after the restrictions are removed, we expect Zoom parties to remain a popular way to connect with loved ones who live far away.


What is the best way to host a Zoom party?

First and foremost, you'll need to understand how to use Zoom to set up a video conference. Here are the five steps to take.


1. Make a user account:

You'll need to build an account before you can host a Zoom session. You can begin the process by visiting the Zoom.us website, which will walk you through the free sign-up process as well as the steps to download and install the Zoom app on your smartphone.


2. Make a date for your event:

Go to the Zoom.us app and schedule your virtual event once you've decided on a date and time for your Zoom team.


3. Distribute invitations:

Send out a cute party invitation that includes a connection to your Zoom party. Copy the invitation and paste it into your message by clicking "copy invitation." Guests will be given the option of joining online or over the phone.



How do you have a good time at a Zoom birthday party?

Even if you're not meeting in person, you should make an extra effort to make your event enjoyable.

Here are a few ways to make your Zoom party a success, whether you're celebrating a landmark event, a seasonal holiday, or just getting along with buddies!


Laughter Therapy Session:

What is better than making your guests laugh? Laughter therapy is a type of therapy that seeks to make people laugh in both group and individual sessions. It may help people and workers relieve stress, become happier and more dedicated, and develop their social skills.


Participate in Zoom party games:

You can play games like charades the old-fashioned way or try online versions of a card or board games with several devices or screen sharing.


Pick a theme for remote teams:

To create anticipation and make your virtual party more fun and entertaining for your remote team, choose a theme and color scheme. Based on your chosen theme, you can buy party decorations, order food, and drink, submit online invites, create a dress code, schedule online activities, and book virtual entertainment.
