Here you’ll discover how to connect and link Epic Games with the Houseparty app so you can use the newly added video chat feature.
Fortnite has been asking players if they’d be okay paying a monthly subscription, and the reaction has been mixed with plenty of people pointing out that the game’s rich enough as a free-to-play with dozens of items for sale. The query doesn’t mean that a monthly subscription is going to happen, but the survey has caused enough of a stir amongst the community.
But, away from the game’s future and the developer’s tentative poking of the bear, below you’ll discover how to connect and link Epic Games with the Houseparty app so you can use the battle royale’s newly added video chat feature.

Some people have reported problems with connecting Houseparty to Fortnite and Epic Games, and this is because the feature is currently not available for everyone.

Provided you do get the Houseparty video chat to work in Fortnite, you should see your friends on the side of the screen which comes with the consequence of making your gameplay slightly smaller.
