Technology: This live-streaming video app is a new rage in Asia
A new smartphone application that allows its users to capture videos of themselves and broadcast it instantly, Bigo Live is becoming widely popular in Southeast Asia.
Before the “Pokemon Go” storm took the world by surprise a few weeks back, this one has been the top free app in the Singapore App Store. This live-streaming video app was developed by a Singaporean team and launched in March. It is available on iOS and Android. Bigo Live works just like Periscope, where users post self-shot videos of themselves. Some of the posts are mildly racy and this one is among the top apps in Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Malaysia.
In this app, the more you broadcast and follow other users, the more experience points you earn. You use those points to climb levels and your video streams reach more viewers.
What more? You can also earn some extra cash with your popular videos.
