Screenshots of the Houseparty App
If you want to build a video chat app like Houseparty, then the app’s screenshots might be useful in developing the UI/UX of your app.
Here are its attractive screenshots.
How Does Houseparty App Work?
Basically the app allows you to connect and video chat with 8 people at a time. It’s not like a Zoom and other conferencing apps where many people could join the conference and have a business conversation. Zoom is the best app for a conference video call but Houseparty is a more of a social and fun app. This app reminds us of another hugely popular and growing audio-chatroom app. You guessed it!! It’s Clubhouse. If you want to build an app like Clubhouse or Houseparty, this is the right time.
A simple registration process allows any person with a minimum of 13 years of age to register in the app and allow them to connect through the video calls. The app is not for the public video chat, instead it allows video calls to users who are in their contact list.
The concept behind the app is to make people feel like they are going to a party. A virtual party actually! As soon as you open the app, your friends will be alerted that you are into “the house party”. So that they could also join the party and meet you face to face in a video app. If you are making a call to multiple family members or friends, the app splits the screen so that everyone on the call could easily talk to you. Apart from that, the app also offers secret chat room options through which you can invite your friends by sending a text link. The app not only allows you to meet your favorite people online but you can also play popular games like a Heads up! Trivia, Chip and Guac, and word race, quick draw, and more.
