Facebook Testing a New Standalone Group Video Chat App, Bonfire
This is not only a standalone app, users can use this app in Messenger as well. Currently, this app is available in Denmark. Users with it can invite people from all over the world to join their chats via Messenger. Friends added to a chat will get a notification in Messenger. Once they join, formats can be switched between everyone getting equal screen space to one that prioritizes the person speaking.
A Facebook Representative said,
“At Facebook Inc we continue to build and test new products and services. We already have many great experiences for people to video chat in groups, or as individuals, across the family of apps, including Messenger. We are interested in how everyone uses technology and how we can build great experiences for them. We’re running a very small test in Denmark of an app we call Bonfire. We have nothing further to share at this time.”
However, Facebook has not revealed any information regarding this. But we will update you when we will get more information about it.
