Description

Bigo Live is a livestreaming and vlogging app from Singapore, which has recently become more popular in Europe. Popularity of users is represented by "beans" similar to experience points you may know from other games and which may be exchanged for real money. While the app is free, users can buy in-app currency with real money to buy beans and other features. 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 is rated for teens in the Google Play store and 17+ on the Apple App store, yet Common Sense Media found numerous examples of sexually implicit and explicit content on the site. The app publicly focuses on gaming and "showbiz" (aspiring artists), but also many teens and children are present on the platform.
