Bigo Live is a smartphone app for real-time video chatting. Its primary users come from Asia, but it’s growing in popularity over the Western world, too, offering functions similar to the most popular chat apps such as WhatsApp.
Optimized for video chatting
Bigo's primary feature is video chatting, and this feature runs quite seamlessly. Apart from being able to see each other, users may send text messages which appear on the video feed.
The social aspect
On top of chatting with friends, the software also enables users to connect with millions of active users and follow celebrities posting on the network. You as well may connect Bigo to your other social media profiles for better exposure.
You may surprise your contacts with a virtual gift, and the app brings fun prizes to loyal users.
Earning money while chatting
Another exciting feature of this network is the ability to earn money with usage. You do so by exchanging their virtual currency in the form of beans. However, this feature makes the software not suitable for the use of children.
An interesting alternative
If you’re looking for an alternative video chat software, Bigo Live is a great option, allowing you to not only communicate but also send gifts and earn money. However, there will be annoying in-app purchases, and if you have a minor use it, parental guidance is recommended.
