What is HouseParty?

HouseParty is a 'social video app', downloadable for free for both Android and iOS.

It has seen its popularity soar throughout the coronavirus outbreak.

The app was actually started in 2016, by the same company who own Fortnite, but has only started blowing up properly now.

You can see which of your friends are online at any one time and play games with them.

Games on the app include Heads Up, Trivia and Quick Draw, which can be played by as many as eight players at any one time. 

It's a virtual house party once people get involved with their own snacks and drinks from home!

How to link Snapchat to Houseparty

There's also the option to link your Snapchat account to your HouseParty one.

When signing up to HouseParty, there's an option to 'Connect Snapchat' to your account, clear to see above where you enter your email address to sign up.

That's the easiest way to do it and you can't miss it on the sign up screen!

You can also sync other media profiles such as Facebook with the app as you go through the process as well - but syncing your Snapchat also gives you the chance to make your Bitmoji your profile picture on HouseParty as well.
