Houseparty is the video-chatting app, which makes it easy for people to share a virtual hang. This face-to-face social network has been around since 2016, and it become a place where you can connect with the people you care about most.
The app makes connecting friends effortless by simply opening the app, your friends will know you’re in the app and ready to chat, so they can join you. Not only that, you can invite your friends to join the in-app games together during the chat sessions. Houseparty is truly the next best thing to hanging out in person.
How does the Houseparty app work?
How this app work is quite simple. When you sign up on the ap, you’ll be prompted to add people from your phone contacts and other social media networks as friends.
Since then, whenever you log in to the Houseparty app, you will see which of your friends might already be on, then you can join them in a chat room. You can essentially call people using Houseparty, by sending them a notification that you’re on and want to chat.
When you have a friend or a few ready to use Houseparty with you, one of you can create a party for the rest of you to join. You can either lock that room so that no one else can join or set it public, and the others can join you. Moreover, you can also send private messages to friends individually (this is called “passing a note” on Houseparty) if you want to have a side conversation.
