Facebook Allegedly Working on a Group Video Chat App
The new app has the working name ‘Bonfire’. Details about ‘Bonfire’ are still unclear though it was described as “essentially a clone of Houseparty”.
Houseparty is especially popular among teenagers and by November 2016, it had 1.2 million users spending a total of 20 million minutes on it daily.
It works by notifying a user’s friends whenever they have the app open, inviting them to hang out virtually on their smartphones.
According to the report, employees at Facebook were also recently shown an app called Talk, designed to encourage younger people to communicate with their grandparents using video chat.
