Tech for your Backyard Tailgate-Movie Watch Parties

It’s fall – which means football, tailgating and celebrating a big win. While this football season is not quite the same as others, you can still bring the game and after-party right to your backyard or outdoor space.

Tech Expert Kate Jay shares how Verizon has you covered with tech that is essential for your next watch party – from setting up to cleaning up.

Perfect for streaming, multitasking and for those who want more than just a phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a smartphone and tablet all in one device that is equipped with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The Samsung Ultra Thin Glass makes it easy to transition from phone to tablet. This is a device that will wow your crowd as it effortlessly connects your device to a monitor or TV with Wireless DeX technology so you can stream the big game or blockbuster without wires. Three apps can be opened simultaneously with App Continuity or by using the Multi-Active Window feature if you want to have multiple games going or just want to keep an eye on your texts and social media feeds.

If you’re social distancing and still want to enjoy the game with friends, “Watch Together” allows you to do both. Thanks to a partnership with Yahoo!, Verizon customers now have access to the Watch Together app, which lets NFL fans video chat on their smart devices while watching live, local and primetime games in the Yahoo Sports App for free. The “Yahoo Sports PlayAR” is a game center experience that offers fans the ability to see graphical replays of key NFL game plays in near real-time using the NFL’s proprietary Next Gen Stats player tracking data.

The LG XBOOM Go Speaker brings the sound. With up to 18 hours of battery life and crystal-clear audio, this compact speaker keeps up with your tailgate lifestyle. LED lights sync up with your music beats and this lightweight water-resistant speaker can go anywhere. Add your XBOOM Go Speaker to your home theater as it easily connects to compatible TVs to add rear stereo or surround sound. Charge it easily via a USB so the party never stops. And it’s voice-activated.

If you really want to immerse yourself in the game and go solo, check out the Montblanc MB 01 Headphones. Premium audio hardware, and active noise cancelling allows you to enjoy the richness of sound and the purity of silence. Created in collaboration with sound expert Alex Rosson, Montblanc MB 01 headphones are attuned to those who seek balanced sound and unparalleled ergonomic tactility to accompany business and leisure. Montblanc MB 01 is for tuning in to inspiring soundscapes, or tuning out from the noise to relax and focus.

When the party’s over, let the Eufy RoboVac 35C handle spilled chips and popcorn. The Robovac features a 3-point, self-cleaning system with a powerful suction that eliminates any debris in the house within 1.5 seconds. Make sure to download the EufyHome app so you can control your vacuum anywhere you are, even when you’re not at the house.
