Badoo app is one of the biggest dating platforms and social media network that is currently growing. They call themselves social discovery media and stand by this definition.
With more than 350 million messages sent every day, the app is your chance to roll into exciting conversations and find a date to move on with the new meetup. Meet Badoo chat room!
How to use
Badoo has a free chat, so even if you are not a paid member, you can use the app to meet new people and talk to them. Some options and features are only available for a Premium account, but all the essentials are free. When someone wants to talk on Badoo, they have several options on how to start a conversation with the user they like.
Like, crush, match!
You automatically get access to chatting when a person takes any action on your account. Touch the chat icon on your left: you’ll see the list of all users who have liked or visited your profile. All your matches are also there.
Choose a person you want to talk online with on Badoo and touch the profile icon. You will see the chat window — and that’s where the fun begins!
Start a conversation and prove yourself to be someone nice to talk to. As a free member, you can text with no limitations, send photos, stickers, and GIFs, share your location and start a video conversation.
In case you suspect you’re talking to a fake or a scammer, push report button next to each message of your match. If at some point, the message seems disturbing, you can exit the conversation and report the inappropriate behavior.
You can also send gifts to your match while talking — it costs extra credits which can be either earned through swiping or simply bought. When you activate the Premium account, you get access to all the gifts, while those in the free version are quite lame.
Someone nearby feels like chatting on Badoo?
You can initiate a chat without any likes or crushes. Open the globe icon at the bottom of the screen — it will lead you to the page with people you ran into during the day and other people nearby. Choose a profile, tap the chat window below the profile picture and start the conversation.
In case you don’t feel like starting a conversation but want to encourage a user to do so, send a little wink in the global mode. Your partner will get “a smile” from you.
You can also set someone’s profile as a favorite, but the other person won’t see it until they have a Premium account.
Live-action: let’s talk!
The third option for chatting is the common room in the live streaming section. This is sort of international ground of Badoo chat room.
Press the live stream icon, choose the one you want to join and roll into the conversation there. The live streams are compiled from all over the world, so there will be both local streamers and users from other countries.
You can send messages to the common chat and talk to people there or to the host of the live stream. Just remember to behave — rude comments or inappropriate messages will not be tolerated.
Some live streamers are trying to reach a particular amount of credits. For example, when the target is reached, the streamer will do some kind of a dare — say, wear their underwear on the head. People send credits through presents, and of course, the gifts cost some. Probably one of the messiest but also most amusing Badoo chat line.
How to control your notifications
The one thing Badoo app is taking a bit too far is the number of notifications. In my opinion, the app sends way too many of those. You get announcements of messages, likes, visits, crushes, brief and friendly reminders on opening the app.
To control the notifications, open the settings icon next to your profile, scroll down to “notifications” block and choose the one you would like to receive.
Where else to chat
Badoo can be entertaining, but at some point, it might get boring. If you want to try something else, there’s a good alternative in the world of dating and chatting sites: Pure.
- Pure is available for iOS, Android and desktop, so you get access to active singles around you at any moment. The app arranges a talk and real-life meeting as soon as possible: once you’ve matched with someone, you have one hour to start a conversation and agree on the further date. Our experience shows that it is just the right amount of time to decide whether you’re interested in this match.
- The app is safe and anonymous, which means you don’t need to connect your social media to the profile. It also deletes all the chats after one hour: your private life stays private, whatever happens.
- The app is still growing, and although there are more than 300.000 people using it, some zones are not well covered yet. However, don’t let it stop you: there are new unique users joining app every day.
- You get a 7 days free trial to try and see for yourself how Pure works.
