Facebook Launch a new application Bonfire that allows you to make group video calls. Facebook’s Bonfire application is very much similar to other popular group video chatting app called Houseparty. Facebook allows you to add a Snapchat live photo filters and you can also share images with friends on other apps like Messenger and Instagram.
With Bonfire app, you can do video chat with 8 friends. You can play with any kind of effects also take pictures of your video chats.
The app description on the Google PlayStore says that: “Bonfire is a group video chat app that lets you hang out with your best friends and meet new ones. When you open the app, instantly start video chatting with friends. Use effects to express yourself and take pictures of your video chats to share on Instagram, Facebook, Messenger and more. From doing homework to catching up, Bonfire is the best place to get together with all your friends.”
Facebook continues to build and test new products and services. Facebook has many great experiences for people to video chat in groups, or as individuals, to the family of apps, including Messenger. They are interested in how everyone uses technology and how they can build great experiences for them. That’s why they are running an app called as Bonfire.
The Concept of Bonfire group video calling is not unique. There are already apps like Skype and Hangouts which also offers this service but don’t have popularity like the Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger do.
The Bonfire app could possibly overcome the Houseparty app with a Facebook wider reach and quick user adoption. You can download this app on Google PlayStore. Do try this app and also comment about this app in our comment section below.
