Most of us have that one group of friends that we cannot get enough of. It could be colleagues, classmates or a random bunch of people that you spend a lot of time with. When it comes to video chatting platforms, there aren’t many that account for the need to have everyone involved in the conversation. This is the problem that Houseparty solves. This revolutionary new app allows you to hang out with and talk to many of your pals at the same time. That way no one in your gang ends up feeling left out of the fun. 

The app can be used for casual purposes such as when you want to hang out and catch up with all your friends at the same time. It could also come in handy for business as a medium for conference calls. Here is more about this app. 

Design: 4/5

The app design is not exactly something new, so when it comes to uniqueness, it is pretty average. What gives it the edge is that it allows up to 8 callers at a time. The layout features a contact list format with names and current presence/absence from the app. The design also includes icons like a waving hand as well as labeled tabs for easy access to different functions. Finally, Houseparty delivers in terms of aesthetics with the customizable background and fun icons. 

Content and Features: 5/5

One key feature is the ‘In the House’ notification which lets you know who is currently online and open to chatting. Another crucial one is the ‘Invite’ function that lets you add new participants to a currently active call. It does this by sending a direct connection link to the contact. The app also allows you to join ongoing video chats as long as they are not full. Finally, you can use the ‘Lock Room’ option to keep other users from joining the conversation for privacy. 

User Experience: 5/5

You have a lot to look forward to as far as user experience is concerned. The logging in process is particularly fast and simple. This is mainly because there is no registration or verification required. Once you are online, using is also pretty much a walk in the park. All you have to do is tap on the call, join or invite icons and voila! You are connected. When it comes to connectivity and call clarity, it all depends on your internet connection and device camera. 

Compatibility: 2/5

The iOS version of the app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices running on iOS 9.0 and up. Its Android counterpart is compatible with devices on Android 4.4 and higher.
