A new update from Epic Games lets you stream Fortnite on Houseparty.
It’s only available on a few platforms as of now, though, and Epic was vague on whether Fortnite Houseparty streaming will be available on other platforms in the future.
Setting up Fortnite streaming in Houseparty involves just one extra step from setting up Houseparty’s Fortnite mode for video chat.
Once active, it lets users stream their Fortnite game directly to their friends instead of just enabling video chat.
The process is simple and automatically notifies friends on the app when another friend begins a stream.
Here’s how to set up Fortnite Mode in Houseparty and how to enable Fortnite Streaming, what platforms its on, and how you can manage your Fortnite Mode settings.
