An app to keep you social despite social distancing
With people forced to work and learn from home, apps like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Slack have seen spikes in downloads as they become essential to daily life. Houseparty is an app now owned by Epic Games, the makers of Fortnite, which regained popularity as experts warn about the importance of social distancing in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. It allows to make very easy video chatrooms with up to 8 people, sending notifications as soon as one of your contacts accesses the app and is available to video chat. Houseparty also offers a fun set of mini games for people in the chatroom!
