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.

it one of my go to apps but...

I love this app a lot and its a great way for my friends to communitacte, but i have it on my laptop and i cant figure out how to sign out of the account becuase its getting to hectic. So if anyone can help me sign out that would be greatly appreciated. Also it would be great if they let more than 8 people in a room like i feel like it would be better if they let like 10 to 12 people instead.

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!

Would love key shortcuts

Very easy to use, good video quality even when it says 'Weak Connection'. Hoping to see some keyboard shortcuts for the desktop version to minimize/maximize chat screens, mute microphone, etc. to do those actions quicker.

UPDATE: It seems to create two notifications for each message sent in a group on desktop, which is slightly annoying.

Thanks for the feedback! We love that you're thinking of ways to make Houseparty better. Keep an eye out for updates!
