Houseparty Desktop App

Houseparty is the face-to-face social network where you can connect with the people you care about most. The app makes connecting face to face effortless, alerting you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation. The same goes for you opening the app! Your friends will know you’re in the app and ready to chat, so they can join you (…because rejected calls are so last year). Houseparty is truly the next best thing to hanging out in person. See your friends more often on Houseparty. Questions? Comments? Just want a friendly hello?

  • app j deleted?? 1/5

    By heyyyyyitskat
    i had it on my desktop as it's own app, but suddenly it updated and only shows as part of a chrome extension... not happy with the update
  • Literally Horrible Update 1/5

    By AttaHT
    Since the most recent update you completely changed your layout into that of the mobile app. However, that defeats the purpose. It makes it impossible to do netflix party or see your friends while doing other things on one device. When I open houseparty I'm automatically online. Not to mention notifications for the app never show up on my laptop despite the notifications being checked on my laptop and notifications working for all other apps. I think you should go back to the old setup because this isn't fulfillng it's purpose.
  • new version doesnt work 1/5

  • They ruined the app 1/5

    By Layan al Dohaim
    after 2.0.0 its so bad very laggy barely can do anything on the app it's the worst update of all time i regret updating it, don't update it if you haven't.
  • Application no longer works and support it useless 1/5

    By Eytan B
    Since version 2.0.0 the application does nothing but display a red square. All the preferences to allow you to choose a camera are gone. I reporeted the issue with my device (an Intel iMac, the year, model, OS, what the bug is, etc) and they responded telling me to report the bug in a different version. When I told them they completely ignored what I sent in, they responded thanks for reporting the bug, they will help me, and sent me to the FAQ. Non existant support and non functioning app. I loved this program now it's just unusable...
  • Audio issuees with Big Sur 2/5

    By JamesOllem
    I just got a new iMac with Big Sur 11.2.3. My friends can see me, I can hear them, but they cannot hear me. I checked audio preferences, reinstalled, restarted - still cannot hear me. My microphone is on. My video chat audio works on Microsoft Zoom, Discord, and everything else - everyone can hear me. Just beware this app is totally finicky. But hey, it's free.

  • needs fixing 3/5

    By brett57544
    when another person joins the houseparty call it says there joining but they are in the call because i can hear my friends talking to the other person but i can't hear the other persons audio so please fix that in the next update
  • what it needs. 5/5

    By Jose13425
    The only thing that it needs is an option to screen share again.
  • Stripped down version. Not worth it. 1/5

    By Clarke Flores
    Downloaded this at the behest of my friends only to discover I could not participate in any of the games they were playing. This was not at any point made clear before I downloaded and installed.
  • No Games on Desktop Version 1/5

    By JakeBostonMeNow
    One of the best features, or the only one really, are the games. Sadly no games can be played using the Desktop app. There are better video chatting services if that's all you need. I wish the developer would make the desktop app compatible with the games.
  • Screen Share 4/5

    By connorhpatrick
    Love Houseparty! only negative this year was that screensharing on my Mac has been disabled with the newest version.. Please bring the feature back please!!
  • Bring Back Screen Sharing for the Mac app!! 3/5

    By dhchdd
    I use screen sharing for Adobe Lightroom and random people join as an audience and give feedback on my photography. Please bring this feature back :)
  • not woriking 1/5

    By Master child
    not working
  • could use an update 3/5

    By Mew4229
    I absolutely love the fact that we can call and text in this app, but i was kinda disappointed because i cannot play games. i was on the phone with my friends and they were playing uno with their mobile phones and i could not join. I would deeply appreciate it if you would update that. Thank you!!!

  • Put the games on the desktop app! 3/5

    By JasHerbert
    Me and my friends love to play house party games while we chat and I am having to use my laptop more and we can't play the games while I'm on my laptop, but other friends can! We mostly play Uno anyway.
  • love it!! but a couple problems. 5/5

    By 💗KayKay💗
    dont get me wrong, i love this app!! the only thing that i think needs some improvement is that i want to be able to play games on here. when i first downloaded it on my mac i was looking for the games. when my friends start games, it says i cant join because i need to update it. and i have tried to "update" the app but it still does not work. but as i said, i love this app! but its a lot better on my phone.
  • What is the point if you can't play games? 1/5

    By isinmoon
    The Mac version of this app doesn't support playing any of the games. What is the point of having Housparty if you can't play games across devices? It's basically just a less effective version of FaceTime/Zoom/Hangouts without the games.
  • Please Fix this 4/5

    By Ali.Hashemi
    This app is so good but for registaration on Mac application is so hard. entering Birthday is so complicated.
  • so good 5/5

    By Ccwe19
    i love this app very much
  • Can edit profile on desktop 1/5

    By Cerrasponda
    I made an account and now I can edit anything. I clicked on everything, but nothing changes. Looks like I downloaded this too soon.
  • Can't Change My Profile Pic on Macbook App!!! 4/5

    By Anna Vexler
    House is great and all, but I can't seem to find a way to make myself have a profile pic. Is it even possible? Plz tell me!!!
  • Wish I could use this on my desktop 4/5

    By like the game but disappointed
    As with others, I would like it more if I could use it on my desktop. That way you don't have to sit there with the phone in your hand the entire time. Plus the bigger screen is much better than lokking at the little phone screen the entire time.
  • dissapointed 2/5

    By Abbie_ Dee
    I have the app on my phone. But when I'm home, it would be so much more enjoyable to play games on my desktop ...there are other apps for conversation so why would I want this app on my desktop if it doesn't include the gamrs
  • Please add Microphone Select 3/5

    By realkuhl
    If you’re on an iPhone or iPad where you don’t have options, this is great. However, I my Mac is in a recording studio and I host YouTube Livestream weekly and have MANY different microphone inputs to choose. HouseParty doesn’t have any preferences so I can not set up a link from my Webcam microphone to use. So for me, this is useless… but works fine on my iPhone/iPad… hopefully you guys can add some preferences for people with more complicated set ups in the future. Thank you - a much needed social fun time for us and our families.
  • Make the games work on Mac!! 2/5

    By spencerrrrs
    I love this app and its fun to chat with friends. On my phone, the games work perfectly. I have an iPhone 6 and it crashes alot, so sometimes I have to use my computer. Its rlly dumb and pointless with out the games. FIX THIS!
  • Great But... 4/5

    By Joel Ledesma
    I love this App I think its great but i think you should add more games when you press the Dice. There is four games to play I think there should be more. When me and my friends get bored in a call we want to play games thats one of the reasons I got this app and showed it but after a while we play all the games we run out cards on Chips and Quac and it gets kinda boring.
  • No Game Support on MacBook Pro 1/5

    By Ellis1113
    No game support for iOS, absolutely no excuses for that.
  • Fun 4/5

    By LeiLei8112
    Just wish I could play the games with my friends that are on mobile

    By queentae11
    its not letting me log out
  • Needs full functionality 3/5

    By Bdrgn
    Good video chat - easy to use and fun intuitive group features. Will give five stars if the mac version allows for games... just like every other platform Houseparty runs on.
  • No Games for Mac?! 1/5

    By Teddy23p
    Why even have a desktop app if you can't do anything that you can do on the mobile app. I really want to be able to use this app on my laptop to play games with my nephews but nope.
  • houseparty 5/5

    By ALYELBAHY
    its very nice and helpful
  • Please add games for Desktop! 3/5

    By CK543
    In this time of social distancing, my circle of friends has been using this app for the digital version of the group games (rebranded versions of cards for humanity, pictionary, trivia and taboo, etc Unfortunately, the game feature is only available on mobile devices and we have great fun despite the somewhat confusing UX. We'd really like a desktop version since mobile app version is a battery drainer.
  • Pointless without games! 1/5

    By G4bbyyy
    The mac application is completely pointless- you can't play games at all! I was excited to use this and play games with my friends for our weekend happy hour, but looks like we'll be sticking with zoom calls & "never have i ever".
  • Nice but lacking audio config 3/5

    By The Nir
    It's a nice idea and works sort-of-ok on mobile, but on a mac there's no way to configure audio source or destination. The results are: 1. On a mac, with headphones or speakers, I hear the other participants only on the left side. This is frustrating. 2. If I want to transmit to my friends live music from my studio, I can't, because the app only listenes to the mac's internal mic, and cannot be set to any other device. All other video apps have this feature. It's about time Houseparty had it too.
