Houseparty, group video chat App thats popular among set of teenagers and college students, is getting Desktop App companion. Today, company released Houseparty for Mac, simple group video chap design to enable faster video chats among close friends and family. It represents a bid for company to extend its reach beyond adolescent hangouts for which it is known into college dorms, study halls, houses, and workplaces. Houseparty is now available as free download in the Mac App Store, and it resembles other group video chats in many respects. Where it differ is in its concept of presence. It asks you to signal when youre available to chat, and then it notifies your friends that youre in house. On phone, opening Houseparty sends notification to your friends that youre available. If your friends are already online, you can join them with a single tap. It is less intrusive than phone calls out of blue, and the concept helped Houseparty obtain 20 million users. The average user has 23 friends and spends 51 minutes a day on App, company say. Facebook built a clone of an App called Bonfire and it is now testing it internationally. Mac App, which sit in your menu bar, introduce new concepts to Apps that companies call around. Users around the state are at their laptops and available for chatting, but their cameras are turned off, and friends are notified of their status only when they first sign in to the App. Still, knowing someone is around could encourage more casual conversations with friends, CEO Ben Rubin tell me. Houseparty for Mac shows you a list of your friends resembling the old AOL Instant Messenger buddy list. You can tap the wave button to say hello or tap the phone icon to start video chat. You can also add other friends to your chat or join existing one. The number next to the app icon indicates how many of your friends are around, and the icon turns red when friends are actively chatting. Chats are no-frills experiences. Housepartys video bubbles are quite small by default, and while they can be expanded to more traditional size, you ca yet resize Windows or go full screen. I had some audio problems during the beta test, which the company says it is working to resolve. Otherwise, chats load quickly and feel lightweight. It is easy to imagine students doing homework together in houseparty chat, or friends catching up after school. Houseparty was born in 2016 from the ashes of Meerkat, which helped to kick off the world's momentary fascination with live-streaming video. Where Meerkat focused on public broadcasts, Houseparty was intended to encourage communications with a much narrower circle. It find early success with young people, who use it after school to catch up with friends in a phenomenon that is sometimes called live chilling. Rubin says that its demographics have shifted over time and now include more adults.
