What product has made your long-distance relationship easiest?

I'm in long distance relationship - giving my girlfriend access to my Google Calendar a few months ago was one of the best decisions I made. She doesn't feel frustrated when I'm MIA for long periods of time and I don't have to remind her of my class/meeting schedule. Any other tips?

    My wife and I did 3.5 years of long distance relationship from 2008-2011. Skype was invaluable to us since we were able to talk to each other almost every day and see each other via video. Obviously if you have an iPhone you could substitute this with FaceTime or the equivalent to a different Phone OS. Communication is key. I think as long as you both exercise good communication it'll help. Plus now with things like SnapChat and Instagram Stories, you can give sneak peeks into your day for your significant other. Make it fun.

    I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for over 2 years and she lives in another country. It was difficult at first but we maintained our connection through skype and facetime. Both have been vital in keeping our relationship strong as they let us communicate. As michael said, Communication is vital to a relationship. I would definitely recommed using skype or facetime

    Google Duo

    One-to-one video calling. Google's FaceTime competitor.

    Seems like an unlikely answer, but Duo's video calling is so simple, needs fewer clicks and really great video & audio quality even on slower networks made this my top choice
