Participating in a virtual happy hour or attending a work meeting over video chat? Here’s how to make the most out of your socially distant interaction.

If possible, use your computer, not your phone. Your arm will get tired holding the device up the entire time, and the video and audio quality aren’t as good.

Avoid appearing with a double chin by propping your laptop up at eye level.

And mute yourself when not talking; the larger the group, the more ambient noise gets picked up.

If you are meeting for your job, be mindful of what’s in the background.

A virtual background could help in a pinch too.
