Houseparty

Houseparty - if FaceTime was built as a social network


There are several video messaging apps and programs out there at the moment, offering the same kind of service as Skype and FaceTime, which is letting two or more people talk to each other with video streams. However, unusually, there’s no one dominant app in this market, so the way is clear for free alternatives like Houseparty which really shine with group calls of three or four people. This is well worth a try as a solution for fun, social video chat.

This is well worth a try as a solution for fun, social video chat.

Focusing on the social network

The Houseparty app is built with socializing in mind, focusing on your chosen group of friends and ensuring that you never miss an update. Designed to be quick and easy, as soon as you log in you can see which friends are online and join or start a chat with one tap. All of the app is given this streamlined feel, using large buttons and a simple layout that you’ll find easy if you ever use Skype or FaceTime. The downside to this app is that it’s a little unstable, but the development team is very dedicated to making constant improvements.

Fun, free video chat!

Houseparty is perfect if you want a new video chat solution that’s designed with bigger groups of friends in mind. A neat screen split helps you to keep track of the action and everything is just one tap away.
