Now you can call while scoring a Battle Royale with the Houseparty app. You can video and voice chat with your friends while playing the 100 player Fortnite game. This app is integrated with the actual game, so there’ll be no guessing who’s who, and who’s where between your phone and your game. Everything is mixed in quite well for both Fortnite and Houseparty, and setting it up is a cinch. Even if you never use it again, a free wrap is a free wrap. So let’s get into it!
The app will be available on Android and iOS devices. The video chat option will be available for PC, PlayStation 5 and other consoles in the future. However Epic Games is soon going to roll out the feature for Xbox platforms. Also, Houseparty needs to be linked to the player’s Epic Games account before starting a video chat with it. Let’s look at the details of Fortnite’s video feature for Houseparty. To set up the video chat feature for Houseparty, players need to follow these steps
How to get Houseparty in Fortnite
- Open Houseparty on iOS or Android and Connect to Fortnite through Settings or the TV icon.
- Join your friends like you usually do.
- Fire up Fortnite on a PC or PlayStation.
- Continue talking to your friends while you play.
- Players must position their mobile devices with the Houseparty app in a position where the camera can see their face
- And you’re done!
Epic has also added the Rainbow Frog Wrap for those who link this feature to the Epic Games profile. You also must play five or six rounds with friends using the Houseparty app in order to get the actual wrap. Also, there’s a time limit! You have to do this before the 26th of November, or else it’s no wrap for you.
Best of luck, and happy gaming!
