What is Houseparty?

Houseparty is a social networking app which allows you to create a group video chat with up to eight people on mobile or desktop. Once a group video chat is created, the members of the group are split up on the screen to make it appear as though everyone is in the same room. You receive notifications when your friends are online and available for a group video chat. Friends can be added from your contacts list or Facebook friends list, however if your location settings are activated, you can also add people nearby to you.   


Apps: Android app, Apple iOS app, Chrome desktop
