Back in November, Epic games announced that Fortnite players on PC and PlayStation have been able to video chat with friends in Fortnite via Houseparty. Now, Fortnite players can also livestream their Fortnite gameplay to Houseparty app.
Now your friends will be notified when your game feed is available and you will also get notifications when your friends are streaming.
Both video chat in Fortnite via Houseparty and streaming the game to the app are currently available to players on PC, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. To install Houseparty, players will need an iOS or Android mobile device. With the app installed, you need to connect your Houseparty account to your Epic Games account to start video chatting or streaming.
When using video chat, your Houseparty friends in your Fortnite party will be displayed live on a side panel, leaving the game screen unobstructed.
In 2019, Epic Games acquired Houseparty in order to “build even more fun, shared experiences.” Now the company use the popular social networking app to boost social feature sets of its gaming platforms.
