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.

Nice but lacking audio config

It's a nice idea and works sort-of-ok on mobile, but on a mac there's no way to configure audio source or destination. The results are:
1. On a mac, with headphones or speakers, I hear the other participants only on the left side. This is frustrating.
2. If I want to transmit to my friends live music from my studio, I can't, because the app only listenes to the mac's internal mic, and cannot be set to any other device.
All other video apps have this feature. It's about time Houseparty had it too.

We want more features for other devices!!

I really like this app, and I don't want to want to sound needy! I am, we all are! The features are great on a mobile device, I cant be the only one that wants to play games without looking up my friends noses. Watching their faces during the game is helpful now that we can"t socialize publicly. Smartphone devices are just too small! Give your fans some love! Give it! Or charge a small fee! those that are okay with the smartphone usage can still play, those of us that aren't fans of double chins and boogers want it!!! Please??!!

Better On My iPhone

Houseparty is helping to reinvent video chats with the ability to instantly join any individual or group who shows as being online. I do like this feature because it helps to engage conversation. The only wish list item I have for having this app on my MacBook Pro would be to have the ability to play games, just like I would on my iPhone. It can be often tiresome to hold my iPhone while engaging with my friends and family, and would simply love the full iPhone abilities on my MacBook.
