Houseparty 1.5

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

#3 Product of the DaySeptember 06, 2017

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.

Houseparty just introduced groups, turning the platform into more of a permanent channel for communication. Now friends (up to 16 per party) can start to continue a conversation beyond its initial formation. I'm part of some Facebook Groups that have existed for 3+ years. This evolution and the addition of texting makes a ton of sense and will help build out Houseparty's social group. Meanwhile, Facebook's already introduced a Houseparty-like video chat feature and rumored to release a similar standalone app called Bonfire (h/t @caseynewton).

Every product expands until it includes messaging. Congrats @benrbn and team!
whats up with the banner ad on the homepage for another house party?
@jasonhitchcock Presumably the compromise from some kind of trademark dispute.
Congrats @benrbn and the team. Love the new update!
Congrats on the new release, @benrbn (et al.)! Group management felt like a bit of a missing piece to me, so this is a very welcome update. Texting seems like a smart engagement hook, too - looking forward to digging around some more!
