Sharing your screen on a video chat is a great way to show something to all your friends, something without making everyone leave the video chat to look at a link. It's also a great way to show your friends and family how to do something on your phone — Grandma will love you if you give her a personal iPhone tutorial. You can share your screen with everyone in a room on Houseparty anytime you want.
Party in 2020
Houseparty makes it possible for you and seven other friends to have a good time without leaving the house. You can play a few party games together, video chat, and just socialize whenever you want!
