Many people have Gmail s, so the Google platform should be a breeze. To set up your party on Google Meet, launch Google Calendar and block out your intended event time. If you want a little less structure and a little more focus on virtual games, check out the Houseparty app as a potential platform. You can choose from a host of games in each room to play together, like virtual Uno, He Up! Everyone will have to download the app, and when you add each other as friends, everyone will get a notification any time someone opens the app. If you end up liking the platform, it can be used for general, unplanned video calls that your friends can pop into at will in the future.
If you have a really specific activity planned out for your evening like the classes we recommend belowconsider using an event-specific platform like OnZoom or Evite. OnZoom is an extension of Zoom, and has both paid and unpaid events listed in its directory.

If none of your gang is skilled enough, consider hiring someone for your group specifically, or browse existing public online events on event platforms that you can crash. You can always duck into your own private Zoom room afterward.
You can also choose to host or attend a cooking class, a late night yoga sesh, or whatever floats your particular boat. One of my pre-Covid social event dreams was to attend a professional murder mystery dinner. The drama! The glam!

There are too many technological solutions out there for you to stress out about the tech side of NYE. If one platform just doesn't agree with your WiFi, or your friends refuse to download it, switch to a different one. Maybe do a test run or gather some public opinion before you set the details into stone, but remember, anything can be changed, even last minute. This is especially important for those of you with specific activities in mind, like hosting or attending a class.

One of the best parts of holiday parties is getting all dressed up. Tell your guests to come dressed to the nines, or according to theme, or in their weirdest outfit possible.
