Epic Games has done everything possible to make Fortnite a social space where players can have fun together. The company wants to take this to a new level, so it announced the addition of the Houseparty app to the Battle Royale.
What does this mean? That players will now be able to make video calls with their friends while playing on various platforms. In this way, it will be possible to have a more attractive gaming experience and the users of the video calling application will be awarded a reward.

How to use Houseparty in Fortnite: Battle Royale?
It is important to mention that the Houseparty integration to the Battle Royale is available for now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC. Additionally, those interested in using the application will need a compatible iOS and Android device.
Epic stated that the video calls will only show the faces of the players, who will be able to use a virtual background themed of the Battle Royale. The company added a new option to parental control to prevent children under 13 from making calls.
Video calls can only be between Battle Royale friends and only the people in the room can see the video of the others. There will be options to block and report users on Houseparty.
For now, Epic has ruled out integrating the app on other platforms. Below are the steps to start using Houseparty in Battle Royale:
Open Houseparty on iOS or Android and link Fortnite via Settings or the TV icon Join your friends as usual or invite them to join your room Launch Fortnite on PC or PlayStation Keep talking to your friends while you play

There will be rewards for using Houseparty with Fortnite
Players will receive a reward when they link their Houseparty accounts to Epic Games. It is the Rainbow Mist paper. This reward will also be available to users of other platforms that do not have Houseparty integration.
To do this, players will have to win 5 Battle Royale games with their friends. This requirement must be met between November 19 and 26. The paper will be delivered to the players before December 4.
