Houseparty is the face-to-face social network where you can connect with the people you care about most. 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.

Doesn’t work on Mac?

This app works fine on my iPhone 7+ of course, but when I tried to download this on my MacBook, it doesn’t work at all. I cannot see them or hear them, it’s just silence and a pink screen. For the others, who are all using Houseparty on their mobile devices, they cannot see or hear me because I cannot even join. I have tried on mutiple occasions to delete and redownload to see if it makes a difference, but it unfortunately never works. I hope there is an update for this app on the MacBook because this is quite disappointing.

Even after the update, this app is still USELESS. I still can’t hear or see anyone. Disappointing.

Oh no! If you're still seeing this issue, send in a bug report by clicking on the word Houseparty next to the Apple logo in the upper left corner of your screen and scrolling down to "Report a bug" so our engineers can take a look!

Best Video Chat App Used SO FAR

It is great. I love it on mobile and now i love it as much on computer. (mac) THANKYOU. But my only request is that you make it exactly like the cell phone software as it is better there. But still like it and definitely would reccomend for all.

I would love it, but...

There's one missing part! Unlike on my phone, where I can send and receive messages, I can't do that on my Mac! When are messages going to be added to Houseparty for Mac?
It's a shame that a missing feature from the mobile version of the app is the only thing stopping me from giving a five star review...

Thanks for the feedback! We're always working on updates, so stay tuned!
