Music will always be with us no matter what. It gets us through the good and bad times, and anything in between. Now, more than ever, music is the key to keep us together even while we are apart.
In this seemingly difficult situation, enjoying music with friends and family is still possible with our mobile phones within reach. Here are four simple ways to create and celebrate music with friends.
Create a collaborative playlist
Stuck at home for months now? You may be starting to get tired of your regular playlists. Try exploring recommended tunes with your friends by setting up playlists in music-streaming apps. Categorize them according to various “feels” to make sure you never run out of things to listen to, no matter what you’re feeling at the moment.
Enjoy concerts and musicals together
A silver lining during this stay-at-home season is the free online screening of several successful and much-talked about stage musicals and concerts. Catch these shows and sing your heart out together with friends through browser extensions such as YouTube party, which allows users to stream videos at the same time.
For those who have always wanted to try recording their own songs or covers, being cooped up at home can be a good way to create and produce tracks with friends–maybe even make an entire album in the process. There are plenty of apps in the Vivo app-store that allow for collaborative recording. Try out apps with built-in instruments, vocal editor tools, and instrumental loops to create studio quality tracks.
Host live concerts
While you’re at it, why not release your tracks online by hosting Facebook live concerts. Gather your “bandmates” and share the fun online through the power of music.
The best part is you can do all these using your Vivo phone. Head to the Vivo app store, download apps that allow for music collaboration and consumption, and revel in your phone’s ability to run these apps seamlessly.
