Houseparty is the group video chat app that lets you be with up to eight people at the same time. The app makes connecting face to face effortless, alerting you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation. The same goes for you opening the app! Your friends will know you’re in the app and ready to chat, so they can join you (…because rejected calls are so last year). Houseparty is truly the next best thing to hanging out in person. See your friends more often on Houseparty.

This app is OK... but I really wish some things could change. I don’t know if this is just my device or the-people-I-Housepartys’ devices but after about 5 minutes of being on pause, I realize the people I am Houseparty-ING have hung up. And when we all get back on Houseparty all of us agree that we didn’t hang up. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? Maybe the app assumes we aren’t talking anymore and quits the Houseparty! Maybe it’s just a specific app somebody is on that makes us all hang up? I DON’T KNOW!!! But I hope this stops happening. Also, I don’t really like how you can just search up a random name and find tons of people (and their faces or avatars or whatever in that little profile picture circle) with the exact same name! You can literally Houseparty ANYBODY YOU WANT AT ANYTIME. Can their be more of a restriction to that kind of thing??? Maybe it shouldn’t exactly show their faces, or it should say something like: “This person has to be in your contacts for you to Houseparty them.” I feel like less bad things will happen that way, not saying anything bad has actually happened! Anyway, Houseparty is a good app and I specifically like it because you can FaceTime more than one person at a time!

Love it! ❤️

First of all, I don’t know why people are complaining? Ok, I have lots of friends that don’t have phones and I can’t talk to them, but with Houseparty I can! Sometimes I want to video chat with multiple people at the same time but I can’t do that with FaceTime. I can with Houseparty! There are little things here in there but I love this app! One time these two people would not stop calling me and anytime I would come on they would join me, but you can sneak onto Houseparty. See, anytime you go onto the app your friends get a notification, but there is a way to sneak on, so your friends don’t get a notification. Also, they give you really cool facts on the home screen, one time I spent hours just looking at the facts! Lastly, if you don’t like getting notifications every time one of your friends comes on, there is a way to do turn it off. Overall, I love this app and I don’t know why more people are using this app. It’s a great app to download and I recommend this app to anyone!

More than an app

I know this app is supposed to be about fun and seeing a lot of people at one time. But I want the developers to know that you gave my family something that is truly irreplaceable. My uncle got sick suddenly and was placed in the hospital on ICU. I have a HUGE family and a lot of us are spread apart in different states. Houseparty allowed us who couldn’t be there physically to be there virtually during precious moments. We were able to say our last goodbyes, hear funny stories, comfort one another, and be there for his final breath. Death is not fun but this app was one piece of making it a little more bearable because we were literally able to be there for one another. Even on different time zones, doing different things, we were all there. That is something that we are all thankful for and will never forget. We literally said to each other how perfect it was that we found this app and got everyone connected a month ago, not even knowing that it would be a necessity during this tragic time. So thank you.
