Bigo Live, a mobile broadcasting app that facilitates real-time interactions and video streaming, now wants to further expand its presence in India. The app has over 100 million registered users worldwide.
Using the Bigo Live app, you get a platform to conduct live sessions and interact with your audience in real time. Or you could just watch Live Broadcast and let random people entertain you. And perhaps that’s what differentiates it from Facebook Live.
At it’s India meet, that hosted popular Bigo Broadcaster under one roof, Bigo Live also introduced a new VLOG video recording feature to its app.
Talking on his maiden visit to India, Eric Liu, Senior Director, BIGO Technology Pte Ltd said, “We aim to build a BIGO community in the world by providing a platform for the young & fashion conscious to come together and share their interests. BIGO LIVE has attracted millions of social media-savvy millennials across the globe since its launch in March 2016. We already have strong presence in countries like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Russia, Middle East, Malaysia, America and we aspire to reach out to more countries in future. We are confident that our app will be able to capture the imagination of the young and trendy in India as well.”
India’s Famous and most awarded Radio Jockey Khurafati Nitin was also present at the event as the Guest of Honor for the evening. In his speech Khurafati Nitin said, “There is a lot of potential in the Bigo Live app and I foresee it to be one of the prominent emerging social networking and internet platforms in the future.” “BIGO Live is fun, entertaining and keeps me hooked. I already have few favorites on the app and am myself planning to start going live soon on BIGO Live,” he added.
Thanks to the ongoing battle between Telecomm operators, data connectivity woes are finally ameliorating, and consequently more and more Indians are willing to go Live. Even smartphone makers are reacting with the launch of phones centered around enhancing your ‘Live’ experience.
