What is Houseparty?
Houseparty is a social platform that allows you to connect with the people you care about, face to face. This is a non-paid application. You can download it for free from the AppStore and register yourself. You will need to add your details such as email address, name, mobile number, and a password for you to create your account. Then, you can easily log in from any other device using your email or username and password.
To connect to your friends who might also have downloaded this application, you need to allow this app to access your contacts. You can also connect to your friends from Facebook or Snapchat applications. This app allows you to connect with a maximum of seven friends face to face at a time, termed as a ‘party’.
How to create a party?
In order to create a group of your contact, you can create a ‘room’ and add the contact you want to communicate with. You also need to ‘lock’ the room, to prevent strangers from joining this room. Some people misuse this by joining into unlocked rooms and displaying censored content.
