  • House Party Sep 12, 2020

    By Figgiesmama
    Hi! I love this app so so so much it’s a great app and everybody can use it. It is a great alternative to FaceTime I love FaceTime but sometimes I can’t have as much fun on FaceTime as I do in house party also I have a friend or two that has an iPod and you cannot see their faces on FaceTime but you can see them on Houseparty also I love this app so much because you can play games on it as well. one thing that I would like to recommend is to please get monopoly and some other games on this app because I am constantly playing the same thing over and over again and it kind of is getting annoying having to play the same thing also I would please like to suggest being able to use a photo from your camera roll as your background instead of having backgrounds that were put there for you, you can take a picture on your device and use it as your background photo and you can customize it as well. Thank you so much for listening to my suggestions and taking it seriously I love this app and I hope it skyrockets through the next couple of years it’s a great app and everybody should have it because it’s great for everybody if you want to talk to one friend or if you want to talk to five. Please have a good rest of your day or night and please stay safe. Thank you so much

  • Great app!! Apr 7, 2019

    By kittyawsomness
    I think that Houseparty is an amazing app. It allows you to video chat with more than one of your friends easily. You can message your friends through the app, which I find very convenient. Speaking of friends, on the app somebody has to request to be your friend, so thistles the app slightly more private then it already is. The quality of the video is very good. Houseparty has the same qualities as the app “FaceTime” and more. You can play games with your friend that the app serves to you while on a call with your friend. You can make group conversations on the messaging part of the app. And to wrap it up, you can call other friends that are on the app, from the app, and you can also just do an audio call. There are many more great things about housparty that I can’t fit into one review. So I definitely recommend this app for any age group. (It is not at all inappropriate or to mature for anyone that is able to use “FaceTime” or “Messages”). The app is very accommodating!!! And awesome!!

    Houseparty is an app that allows you to chat with multiple friends (maximum of 8 i think). So I’ve been using Houseparty for a little over a year now, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!! It’s so cool! When you first get into the app, it is even shows cool little facts (though they’re not always true😂). The BEST part about houseparty to me and what makes it more unique from google duo, FaceTime etc. is actually 2 things. 1. I already mentioned this, but I find the fact that when you first get into it, it shows facts! Though like I said, they’re not always true😂. 2. I LOVE how you can play games on it!!!!!!!!!!! There are just a couple of things that I don’t like though. (Don’t worry developers, I didn’t delete it and won’t for a while). 1. They recently added this new update, backgrounds. At first I thought it was cool, but when I tried it, it just looked SUPER weird. Please fix that. 2. The sound quality isn’t TERRIBLE, but its not the best and it will glitch some. Same for video quality. Sometimes people will get kicked from the call, but I’ve only seen that happen like twice. Overall, Houseparty is an AMAZING app and I recommend it for pretty much EVERYBODY.

    First of all, I don’t know why people are complaining? Ok, I have lots of friends that don’t have phones and I can’t talk to them, but with Houseparty I can! Sometimes I want to video chat with multiple people at the same time but I can’t do that with FaceTime. I can with Houseparty! There are little things here in there but I love this app! One time these two people would not stop calling me and anytime I would come on they would join me, but you can sneak onto Houseparty. See, anytime you go onto the app your friends get a notification, but there is a way to sneak on, so your friends don’t get a notification. Also, they give you really cool facts on the home screen, one time I spent hours just looking at the facts! Lastly, if you don’t like getting notifications every time one of your friends comes on, there is a way to do turn it off. Overall, I love this app and I don’t know why more people are using this app. It’s a great app to download and I recommend this app to anyone!

  • Great app but a few issues Nov 12, 2020

    By reace cat
    Me and my friend were doing whoever could type the most and saying random things and after like a few seconds it deletes it snd u have to start over again and is really frustrating, I love this app but I have heard from some people it cause drama And people get left out because like say a friend Is talking to another and someone goes on house party and then they lock the door and it makes the person sad, so I get it so not people just join you and I like how u can lock it but I’m saying it hurts people feelings so I’m just saying to everyone to this app that to be aware and if someone is bullying you just report them, and be kind to everyone and they will be kind to you, and now the good part of this app is you can talk to your friend more often and I like to keep you not board you can play games like uno and let’s more it just makes my heart glow to see people playing together and talking on this app but my heart drops when someone is mean, so everyone be nice and have fun on this app but be aware there is some mean people you just don’t listen to them, be carful on this app, and be aware that when ur typing something really long it could delete it snd don’t get frustrated if it happens it happened to me too! Have fun!

    Freezes constantly and stops working completely after open for 7 seconds. Obviously programming team is focused on new functions but broke the app to do so. I can't shake the app to send the report because it freezes. I've updated, Uninstalled numerous times with same result. Moved on to Messenger for kids and much happier.

    Fortnite login fails. Support confirmed a bug with my account but no fix. I think old server data is glitched and keeping me from relinking my account. Technicians give identical response as seen in their reply to this review. Shaking and reporting does not seem to reach the "engineers" as I did this twice with the same response.

    By JaiDJade
    it’s alright when it works but it doesn’t even come close to comparing to Zoom, Duo, FaceTime, etc. with AirPods, the latency is so bad that you would hear a response until at least 2 full seconds have passed. the quality leaves much to be desired. the was frequent feedback on the call, meaning that it has issues with noise-cancellation (which other video calling apps have no issues with). it’s inefficient and drains my battery like no other. the video quality honestly was pretty good but the voice quality was subpar. an hour into the call we got kicked and couldn’t join each other again. we spent 30mins trying to call them and them calling me and we’d select “join” but our efforts were futile because it never worked. eventually we just gave up. not to sound like a Karen with the hard R but i’m so disappointed in this app. i ended up deleting it after the first use. also, part of me thinks that privacy isn’t at all a concern of theirs (i should read the privacy policy yes i know) so i’m even afraid that having the app installed is going to lead to me getting hacked and locked out of my accounts

  1. It's all in the name! One big house party, the only real way to group chat in person with no fees attached
  2. Have full privacy for your chat: lock the chat room so that only your group can use it, preventing total strangers from popping in
  3. Meet new friends or just meet up with old ones - either way, Houseparty makes in-person group chat quick and easy

  • AMAZING ❤️ APP 😍😃 Jun 5, 2019

    By 93729201
    This app is very good. You can talk to all your friends and have a good time. Other reviews said that like it was the worst app ever because it had to use internet, well first of all you can’t connect ANY video chat without WiFi same with calling You can’t call without WiFi so that was a pretty dumb one but yeah. It’s a rlly good app. You can play games with people, message them, learn cool facts, and more. I moved a couple of years ago and I moved 12 long hours away from my 5year old cousin. I have an iPod and his mom has a Samsung. I can’t FaceTime them because I have an iPod touch and it won’t work. So we got this app and now we can talk to eachother and we won't be so far away from each other. He is deaf so he can’t hear so we can audio call and he loves to show me his new toys and cats on the Houseparty video chat. I would really recommend you trying this app. You might have a wonderful time.

  • More than an app Jun 21, 2018

    By ZandriaDavis3
    I know this app is supposed to be about fun and seeing a lot of people at one time. But I want the developers to know that you gave my family something that is truly irreplaceable. My uncle got sick suddenly and was placed in the hospital on ICU. I have a HUGE family and a lot of us are spread apart in different states. Houseparty allowed us who couldn’t be there physically to be there virtually during precious moments. We were able to say our last goodbyes, hear funny stories, comfort one another, and be there for his final breath. Death is not fun but this app was one piece of making it a little more bearable because we were literally able to be there for one another. Even on different time zones, doing different things, we were all there. That is something that we are all thankful for and will never forget. We literally said to each other how perfect it was that we found this app and got everyone connected a month ago, not even knowing that it would be a necessity during this tragic time. So thank you.

  • Amazing! Just one thing.. Jul 12, 2019

    By TheReviewingCorgi
    House party is a great way to hang out with ALL of your friends at any time! I’d call for hours, and we always have great connection wherever we are. The games are great- my friend group loves the game Chips and Guac! We played forever, and our answers always made us laugh. However, I do find one thing that may be useful for some. In some situations, you want to call but can’t because you have to be quiet at night or while someone’s working. I’ve had to decline calling my friends because of this. I think that adding a chat to be available (when needed) on the side of the screen would be helpful to people like me!! Then, we’d be able to chat without others hearing us. I’d be simple for the others to see, and reply to. We could have headphones in listening to our other friend(s) and still be a part of the conversation, all while nobody knows! I know this is just one review and nobody else has asked, but I would really enjoy it! Thank you for your time!

  • Fun app, but lags Mar 28, 2020

    By im.belle
    My friends and I were mid playing last night at around 12 am when the app crashed. It started to lag on all ends and we couldn’t even try to video chat with each other because we weren’t showing up on our personal friend list even though we were all waiting for each other the whole time. It wasn’t loading. My friend uninstalled and reinstalled and no changes happened. It started to work 30-40 minutes later. We were all annoyed and wondering what was happening. Also, in the games, cards and words constantly repeat which looses excitement in the game. We all kept saying “wait! We just did this!” And as for the Karaoke Night, they were all older songs that majority barely knew. We were expecting more current songs from 90s - current times. It seemed to be opposite. This game is definitely bringing people together especially during this quarantine, but it definitely needs some improvement. I was trying to find the “help” section to see what I can do, but couldn’t. Let time heal itself.

  • A GLITCH Apr 4, 2019

    By Kitty Gaming YT
    I got Houseparty to talk to my many friends at the same time because some didn’t have an Apple device. It worked for all of them perfectly fine (i think),but it had an annoying glitch for me. Whenever I went in a chat room or just called one person, it had some kind of echo that wouldn’t allow me to hear my friend(s) in the chat room. I have two electronic devices. An Ipod and an Ipad. I downloaded this app on both devices just in case my ipod died viceversa. But this glitch was effective to BOTH MY DEVICES. At that point, I gave up. I thought it was my wifi or something else. I tried going in EVERY SINGLE ROOM IN MY HOUSE. Still didn’t work. So I decided to use a different app to talk to my friends. This app is WONDERFUL and it has connected many people who live far away from each other, but it just didn’t work for me. I would LOVE to use this app again, but my electronics or the app won’t permit me with that glitch. This is the ONLY reason why I gave this a 3-star review. - A Friendly Reviewer 🤗

  • Three stars review explanation Jul 10, 2018

    By Hwvbdxb
    So, I gave Houseparty a 3star review because they were always sending me notifications to sign up with Facebook. I’m to young for Facebook and I don’t like it. Making something do something they don’t want to is not appropriate. Second, it doesn’t work if you don’t have WiFi........? what if you want to talk with your family members as a group in one chat and you can’t because you don’t have WiFi. It’s very annoying how apps don’t let you play or do things on it without WiFi. It’s very annoying, and for me growing up with not that much WiFi in my household, it really annoys me of how I always have to have it. Third, the app will also don’t work if you have slow WiFi. What I meant with growing up with not that much WiFi in my household, I meant it was very slow. Sure now it fast but still. What about other people. They just want to enjoy their time. Not from worrying if their WiFi is bad. So this is my opinion. I am only 11 years old and I still have my judgments.
