Spooky New Trivia + [Frames] are LIVE!

We’ve also released a new Halloween-themed Trivia deck to play with your pals! Be sure to check them both out during your virtual Halloween parties this weekend. 🕷

Jordan is a New Zealand born artist based in Australia. What started as a personal quest to form something bigger quickly turned into something new. He taps into a modern grunge-esque, youthful style that utilizes color and light as a resource to cast visuals. His desire to illustrate and become an artist has always been a hidden pulse in his life - beginning with early obsessions over comic books and cartoons, then turned to the blending of life, color, and illustrative art altogether. 🎨

How to use [Frames] in Houseparty:

  1. Start a group chat with your friends.
  2. Press the [Frames] icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.
  3. Select the frame you’d like to use and confirm.
  4. Strike a pose, you look glamorous.
