Life on Air
Houseparty is a social app very well-liked by teens who seek a secure and friendly place to hang out away from their parent’s eyes. This free app allows users to gather in groups of up to eight people and video-chat, exchange texts, and play games on a fun and interactive platform.
Houseparty is an excellent choice for people looking for top-notch face-to-face video calling experience facilitated by a clean and much-polished user interface. The app pulls users with its colorful, teen-friendly design that makes navigating the app an effortless and intuitive process.
Despite the many amazing features, its interface does not look cluttered or messy. Rather it is built to give one easy access to all the essential features and options from the very moment they open the app.
Key Functions 5/5
Houseparty is so much more than just another video chat app for face-to-face video calling and texting. While it does have the conventional feature set of a social networking platform like FaceTime or Google Hangouts, the capabilities of the app are not limited to that alone.
Apart from free video calls and texting, users can pass the time playing a bunch of fun trivia games and organize spontaneous private gatherings in safely locked chat rooms.
They can also get notification alerts when their friends are online and ready to join them, as well as record and send personal messages to someone who is not available at the moment. Be careful though, if the communication takes place in an unlocked room, anyone can crash the party, just like in real life!
One of the best things about this app is its clean and straightforward UI. Users can arrange virtual hangouts and play with their friends without wrestling with the app's tricky interface or trying to get to grips with how certain things work around here.
Regular updates ensure that no technical issues interrupt the fun. When it comes to usability, this is one of the most manageable and smoothly working tools for online communication.
Cross-Platform Use 4/5
The Houseparty app is available on Android smartphones, tablets, and Apple devices (iPhones, iPads, and Mac). There is also an in-browser app for PC users operating in Google Chrome.
