We want more features for other devices!!
I really like this app, and I don't want to want to sound needy! I am, we all are! The features are great on a mobile device, I cant be the only one that wants to play games without looking up my friends noses. Watching their faces during the game is helpful now that we can"t socialize publicly. Smartphone devices are just too small! Give your fans some love! Give it! Or charge a small fee! those that are okay with the smartphone usage can still play, those of us that aren't fans of double chins and boogers want it!!! Please??!!
Better On My iPhone
By a girl named tin
Houseparty is helping to reinvent video chats with the ability to instantly join any individual or group who shows as being online. I do like this feature because it helps to engage conversation. The only wish list item I have for having this app on my MacBook Pro would be to have the ability to play games, just like I would on my iPhone. It can be often tiresome to hold my iPhone while engaging with my friends and family, and would simply love the full iPhone abilities on my MacBook.
I only downloaded this on Mac as I thought it had games
I didnt read the reviews & now that I've installed this , d'oh! "where are the game options"? & now I see there arent any, yet, for the MAC app. I have tendonitis right now, & Zoom, so no way I'd rather hold a phone up for a long night of fun with friends & family. I'll check back to see if the programers continue to develop options for MACs. Lastly, If I were to use this just for video chats then I miss the 2 options currenlty availabe on other apps of face filter & adding ones own background, but maybe those options are avaialble on the phone verison of HP which I do not have? Cheers!
Doesn’t work on Mac?
By Skittles 💎
This app works fine on my iPhone 7+ of course, but when I tried to download this on my MacBook, it doesn’t work at all. I cannot see them or hear them, it’s just silence and a pink screen. For the others, who are all using Houseparty on their mobile devices, they cannot see or hear me because I cannot even join. I have tried on mutiple occasions to delete and redownload to see if it makes a difference, but it unfortunately never works. I hope there is an update for this app on the MacBook because this is quite disappointing.
Even after the update, this app is still USELESS. I still can’t hear or see anyone. Disappointing.
Better on Mobile
I really like this app, the features are great but I wish that it could have the same features on mobile than it does on a Mac. On a mobile device you can send invites, schedule calls, play games, and edit your settings. I think that it would be a very nice upgrade for some that only have access on a Mac. Other than that I think its a great app for kids so they can chat and talk with friends
it one of my go to apps but...
I love this app a lot and its a great way for my friends to communitacte, but i have it on my laptop and i cant figure out how to sign out of the account becuase its getting to hectic. So if anyone can help me sign out that would be greatly appreciated. Also it would be great if they let more than 8 people in a room like i feel like it would be better if they let like 10 to 12 people instead.
Please add games for Desktop!
In this time of social distancing, my circle of friends has been using this app for the digital version of the group games (rebranded versions of cards for humanity, pictionary, trivia and taboo, etc
Unfortunately, the game feature is only available on mobile devices and we have great fun despite the somewhat confusing UX. We'd really like a desktop version since mobile app version is a battery drainer.

I love this App I think its great but i think you should add more games when you press the Dice. There is four games to play I think there should be more. When me and my friends get bored in a call we want to play games thats one of the reasons I got this app and showed it but after a while we play all the games we run out cards on Chips and Quac and it gets kinda boring.
Wont even open
Ive used it before on my MacBook, and it worked great. i unisntalled it though because i wasnt on it much. ive reinstalled now because my friends are starting to use it again, but for some reason it will not open. ive tried to uninstall and reinstall again, but that didnt work. then i tried downloading from the website, and that didnt work either. i dont know what to do. somebody please help.
Would love key shortcuts
By Suds P
Very easy to use, good video quality even when it says 'Weak Connection'. Hoping to see some keyboard shortcuts for the desktop version to minimize/maximize chat screens, mute microphone, etc. to do those actions quicker.
UPDATE: It seems to create two notifications for each message sent in a group on desktop, which is slightly annoying.
