Imagine this, you’re sitting home all alone in the middle of this quarantine situation and you miss your friends. You wanna call them but you have a huge social group and you can only call so many friends you video chat with at one time : (. You hit them up and they tell you to download Houseparty and you have no idea what that is. Well, you have nothing to worry about because over the next few paragraphs, I’ll explain what Houseparty for Windows 10 is, and how you can download it for PC.
What is Houseparty?
In the words of the developer, Houseparty is “a social networking service that enables group video chatting through mobile and desktop apps”, but enough of that mumbo jumbo, because basically, it’s an app for video calling. That’s it. You can easily video call up to 8 people simultaneously. 8 PEOPLE! You can have group video calls for almost 51 minutes, and when those 51 minutes are up, you can just restart the call. It’s that easy to use.
How Do I Get Houseparty For PC?
Well, that’s where we run into a bit of a problem. Originally, the Houseparty was only designed for ios, Android and macOS…. Sooooo if you have a PC, you would’ve been in a tight spot if it weren’t for a software called “Bluestacks”. Bluetsacks is an emulator that enables the user to run android applications on a windows pc. This means it can help you download Houseparty on a PC. Pretty cool right?
It’s free software so you can download it from its website (I’ll have It linked below). It’s about 510 megabytes which is pretty reasonable. After downloading it, click the installation file and let it do its thing. After downloading the required files, it’ll automatically begin extracting them. This may take a few minutes.
Once you have Bluestacks installed, launch it and a screen will appear where it’ll give you a tiny note at the bottom that says “ starting bluestacks”.This is a onetime thing where it configures itself according to your Pc’s specs. After this, it’ll take you to the home screen where you’ll be able to see your installed apps, search for apps that you might want to download, popular suggestions based on your area and a toolbar for further assistance on the right. You will be prompted to sign in to your Google Play account but you can do that later as well.
How to use Bluestacks For PC Windows 10?
Now just pan over to the search bar in the upper right side and type in your desired app. In our case its “house party” and it’ll list the app on the screen. From here it’s fairly easy. Click on the app you wish to download. If you haven’t already logged in to Google play account, it’ll prompt you to do so now. After you’re done with that, it’ll open another tab and take you to the play store page for your desired app, in our case, the Houseparty app.
From here, you can click install and it’ll start downloading the same way it does on your phone. That’s it. It’ll download and install all by itself and then all you have to do is click on the Houseparty icon that’ll appear on your Bluestacks homepage and voila! You have successfully installed Houseparty on your windows PC. The only thing left is to just sign up.
