BIGO LIVEfor Android



Interactive video chat app

BIGO LIVE is a new smartphone chatting and streaming app that lets users connect with friends and explore the world beyond their groups through other communities. This platform ensures a seamless broadcasting and viewing experience for its users across various devices. 

Easy communication

With the rise of TikTok and Instagram stories, anybody can go live, but BIGO Technology created this platform to boost social interactions

It supports one-on-one and group video chats and interactive features that help users build a following. The window-in-window feed makes chatting by voice and text seamless, no matter the number of active participants.

There’s also the live streaming option, but it’s more supportive than with platforms like Twitch.  BIGO organizes events and challenges to bring more viewers to creators.

Content variety

Whether you’re there to watch or create content, this platform makes it easy to find your interests. Gaming is a significant player for social interactions, as the app seeks to support content creators in this niche. 

You’ll find a lot of entertaining content even if you don’t enjoy video games. Showbiz lets you browse through groups and videos related to various categories, including dance, music, and cooking. 

If you’re streaming, choose a niche, and you’ll find people interested in the same topic. However, note that there are adult content creators on the app. Recommending parental advisory when having your children use the app.

Free vs. paid

You can use BIGO LIVE for free or purchase the premium version that removes ads from the user interface. 

Either way, you get coins and XP, awarding each login and the time you spend on the app. You can use these to gift your favorite broadcasters and upgrade yourself to a VIP member of communities.

There are also diamonds for purchase through safe and well-encrypted transactions. These can serve as gifts to streamers to convert into real money.

Our take

In a nutshell, this app is a solid competitor to today’s major social platforms. While it doesn’t introduce many new features, it’s lightweight, well-executed, and likely to reach global popularity.

Should you download it?

Yes, if you’re tired of the more mainstream video chatting and content apps. BIGO LIVE can be a breath of fresh air, although it isn’t that different from its competitors.
