Bigo Live is a livestreaming and vlogging app from Singapore. Popularity of users is represented by 'beans', which are similar to experience points you may know from other games, and which can be exchanged for real money. While the app is free, users can buy in-app currency. When livestreaming, a chat box is available to chat with other users as well as the user streaming and to send virtual 'gifts' (stickers).
The app may only be used for people who are 18+, yet there has been controversy around the app because many teens and children are present on the platform, and Common Sense Media found found numerous examples of sexually implicit and explicit content on the site.
