Houseparty was four years ago before the Trend passes by “thanks” corona crisis in the App Charts at Skype, WhatsApp & co. The Special? In the App virtual in-house parties up to eight people, in which not only their own friends but also friends of friends can participate. This makes for funny evenings in front of the phone or the Laptop, because there are always new combinations. Now: Whether real or virtual, there are certain guests that we meet at every house party … maybe you will recognize yourself again?
#1: The Sociali serine
At every Party there is a Person who is the link between all the friends who do not know each other at all – it is usually the hostess, the list of your guests colorful thrown together, and has now meticulously tries to bring conversations to avoid awkward Silence. On virtual house parties, there is a Wing-Woman – she is the one that started the Chat originally, and now, new people invites (for Houseparty-newcomers: go through the Plus icon at the top right) to mix the group with each other, maybe even easy, to hook her best friend. Participants who do not know each other before, can add very easy in Chat and your friends list will expand. Who knows, maybe completely new acquaintances, which remain even after the Social Distancing-Phase arise? (And maybe even in the real world.)
#2: The Lost
This visitor is characterized in that it is already vanished at the very beginning, and nobody knows exactly whether she is even still at the Party. In the case of the virtual bash this is not much different: Even saying Hello, she’s gone already. Returns an empty Desk chair, and here and there a noise in the Background remains. To hear at all? The is still in the same room? Pro-tip to the Lost: Prefer to not log out, others take away the space in the group chat!
#3: The entertainer
A good animator everyone convinced “For me, today, prefer no alcohol”-a guest, a glass of drink along with them and is not only the First on the dance floor, but also at the Beer-Pong on the front. Added: Beer Pong on a Laptop is difficult. But luckily, there are in the Houseparty-App some games to be with his new friends warm. For example, one of the present needs to draw something on the screen, and the other must guess the work of art as soon as possible. Also, “Who am I” with characters from Friends, Pretty Little Liars & co. can be played in the Party App. With a glass of Vino in Hand, it plays much better. And the Best: Nobody has to drive home, but can directly fall into bed.
Together, through the crisis: Together Netflix look in spite of the quarantine – this App makes it possible!
#4: The Nörglerin
Maybe it’s the music, the food or the Location. The Nörglerin is not easy to satisfy. This is in the virtual world, unfortunately, is no different. Here it is, the poor Internet connection, Background noise or you can’t find just not a good Position for your Laptop or your mobile phone, because they can be found in every corner of your room attractive enough. Keep Calm: Social Distancing means for a lot of Make-Up-Detox, and less hair to wash. Because no one looks as neat as a pin. Send we can make us, if we are allowed to go out again properly!
#5: The one that knows none
Suddenly someone rings the door and everyone is asking: Who is this? Who was invited exactly? What might be a proper house party, a little creepy, we desire in times of Social Distancing sometimes: Not only his loved ones to meet (online of course), but also see new faces. The App makes it possible, by Strangers can just sneaken in the Chat – well, quite a stranger, you are not, because you need to know at least one of the Chat participants. Who has just had a crisis meeting with his girls, and perhaps even in the bath, you can finish the Chat. Just click the lock icon (bottom center), click – happy Chatting!
