Nice timing with Apple's announcement of group FaceTime (obviously very similar looking to Houseparty) at WWDC today. πŸŽ‰ I'm curious why you're expanding to the desktop, @benrbn. Knowing you and the team, I'm sure there was a behavior or trend that inspired this expansion. Or maybe it's as simple as making it easier to use Houseparty more frequently, everywhere.

ive been testing the beta for a couple of months and love that I can quickly jump into a party with friends.

Pros:

it lets you quickly hit up your friends when you are on your desktop

Cons:

its not a con more of a feature request: I want to share links while chatting with friends

Was WWDC's group facetime announcement a coincidence or did you launch after seeing it?
