Houseparty 1.5

Live video chat with friends, now with groups and texting 🎉

Houseparty 1.5 is FaceTime for groups. Now you can make guest lists, name your groups, and group chat away (pro tip: you can even buzz the guest list all at once). Pretend keeping your social circles separate in real life is as easy as separate Houseparty rooms.

The latest app that has captured the imagination teenagers these days is Houseparty which, thankfully, has nothing to do with alcohol and everything to do with video chatting with friends.
BuzzFeed
With Facebook reportedly hard at work cloning its group video chat service, Houseparty is playing some offense. Houseparty, an app which connects people with their friends in spontaneous video chats, is today releasing its first major product update - a new feature that lets users form groups of up to 16 people, and call them in organized video chats.

Fam

Fam is the first live video application built in and for the iMessage interface. After you download Fam, it will appear in your iMessage keyboard.

Fam offers a way to seamlessly hangout with friends in group video chats right within their already existing iMessage group chats.

In my opinion, one of FaceTime's major flaws is the lack of group video chat. Sure, apps like Skype, ooVoo and now Messenger let you do group video chats, but it's just not as seamless as FaceTime.

You might have seen people excitedly tweeting in the last two weeks that "group FaceTime" is finally here. But make no mistake - it's not tech giant Apple behind this new iMessage -based app. It's three guys in Boston you've never heard of.

Fam took 8 days to build, but it took over 2 years and 4 other product launches to create. The story starts when I teamed up with my cofounders Frank and Giuseppe.

Their disappointment was loud and clear. Apple had just finished its big WWDC presentation last week on Monday, June 5, and it became apparent that the West Coast tech giant wasn't going to release a feature for iPhone that many fans were clamoring for: group FaceTime.

Hi Everyone. Super excited to introduce PartyCam. Itay and I wanted to solve 2 problems.

First one is that there was not great solution to capture life with friends and share it outside the group.

Second was that we wanted to let people create stories based on topic and keep adding to them over time and share them anywhere.

hope you enjoy it.
