If there is an app that is making waves during the Covid-19 confinement (outside the training app category) it is Houseparty.
Yes, the handy app. You will easily recognize it by its image. An app that has been available on the market for quite some time but has not had its moment of popularity until these last few weeks. Facebook even wanted to acquire it at the time but it was finally the video game company Epic Games that acquired it. And now we give thanks for it.
What is Houseparty?
Let’s end the debate about whether it is a social network or an app, it is both. Just because it is a private app does not mean that it is not a social network. In fact, they call themselves: Face to face social network.
It is characterized by being a video calling app with extras. Let’s think about all those apps in which we make video calls: teams, hangouts, skype, whatsapp, etc. Nothing new, all more or less the same, with small differences between one another.
However, Houseparty, as its name suggests, has another purpose: to have fun. It is not intended to be the app that we use for teleworking in times of confinement but rather the app that we use for video calls with friends. Well, and with strangers. You invite your friends, your friends invite other friends. And before you realize it, you have a room full of people ready to have a good time playing a series of games such as Pictionari, the drawing classic, Trivial or Who’s Who among others. That’s Houseparty’s value proposition. And he’s killing it.
In times of free time crisis, these types of apps or networks are a must in our catalog.
