A sudden and unexpected viral hit from the creators of Meerkat, Houseparty is a free app for iOS and Android that lets you hang out with your friends via video chat. It's especially popular with young people - just like real parties.
What is Houseparty?
Houseparty is a group video chatting app, where you and up to 7 others join the same chat and talk to each other using the front-facing (selfie) cameras on your phones. It's a really easy way to keep in touch with your friends and make new ones, especially when they're far away or you just don't feel like getting off the sofa.
What's the point of Houseparty?
It's a bit like Facebook Live, but instead of one person broadcasting what they're doing to an audience of watchers, with Houseparty everyone is broadcasting, and you can all see what everyone else is up to. It's like being in a room all together, but without the effort.
People like Houseparty because it lets them see all their mates as if they were hanging out, and whenever they feel lonely or bored, there's a group of friends waiting to chat. It's a great app for keeping you company in quiet times (or when you're procrastinating!) and for making sure you stay in touch with the people you love.
Is Houseparty free?
The Houseparty app is free to download and use on iPhone, iPad and Android.
