What is Houseparty?
Houseparty is a video calling app in which you can video call to your friends or family, with as many simultaneous connections and multiple parties as you want. It is an extremely handy app to connect people far away from their friends and family.
How is it different from other video calling apps?
Initially, it looks similar to Facetime or Skype, but it is a lot different. In Houseparty, you can have video calling with eight people at once. The group’s creation of video chats is its unique feature.
Houseparty notifies your friends about your presence at the house. As you enter the home, your friends know that you’re in the house and available for video calling fun via this app. Pretty cool stuff!
Why Life on Air (Meerkat developer) created Houseparty?
App developer Life on Air had earlier developed live-streaming app “Meerkat,” which got sensation but the rival app – Periscope beats it. But the team continued to fire up its think tank to bring up an app to connect people and they have found a way now.
Meerkat’s COO and Co-founder Sima Sistani, in an interview with Business Insider, said, “When we were able to pull away from the hype and look at Meerkat’s numbers, what was clear to us was that we hadn’t succeeded in building something that was a daily habit, that achieved our mission of connecting people in most human way possible when physically apart.”
