Welcome to Funtivity by Hermis. You can use Funtivity to bring your remote team together over a fun activity.

Funtivity by Hermis is an app for Zoom that allows the meeting participants to play activities like Trivia, Bingo, Escape Room, Scavenger Hunt and more. Funtivity has a plethora of activities & content for a wide variety of occasions including Team building, conference breakout sessions, cultural events and more. With more than a dozen different activities and meticulously crafted events for all occasions, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Once the app is installed, browse the activities or pre-curated events, choose your favorite, and click “Start Event”. You can invite other meeting participants by using the “Send App” feature. For participants that join late, a hint is shown to join the event when they open the app.
