Making video calls at Fortnite is now possible with Houseparty

Houseparty is an application that gained enormous popularity at the beginning of the year in Spain, during the time of confinement in the country. The application seeks to maintain its popularity and they do it with an interesting novelty since they join forces with Fortnite to be able to make video calls while we are playing or our friends are playing.

Thanks to these video calls we will be able to watch them and talk to them while they play in Fortnite. Epic Games has reached an agreement with Houseparty to combine video calls on the phone with playing the popular game. An unexpected union, but it's certainly interesting for many.

Video calls in Fortnite thanks to Houseparty

This feature is presented as a convenient way to play Fortnite with friends no matter the distance. It is only necessary to make a video call using Houseparty and then combine the account in the application with that of Epic Games. By doing this, the screen of all participants can be viewed on mobile and also in the game.

Thanks to this integration, Fortnite can be played with several friends at the same time, also reacting on the same screen of the game. Users will be able to talk during that video call and listen to the game and what their friends say. During the game, it is necessary to keep the mobile pointing at the opponent, but the broadcasts will all be combined on the game screen. These video calls can be made with the PC, PS4 or PS5 versions of the game. The steps to use them are:

  1. Sign in to your Houseparty account (or create a new one).
  2. Go to the app settings.
  3. Go to Permits.
  4. Select the option to connect to Epic Games.
  5. Sign in to your Epic Games account.
  6. Start a video call with the users you want.
  7. Once the video call is started, open Fortnite on the desired platform.

This function will be deployed soon in the application, although at the moment they have not given dates for it.
