Bigo Live is a live streaming platform and social media app that allows users to broadcast themselves in real-time to a global audience. Users can share their talents, interests, and daily activities through live video streams and interact with viewers through real-time comments and virtual gifts.

Developed by a Singapore-based tech company called BIGO Technology, the platform was officially launched in March 2016 and quickly gained popularity for its interactive features, which enable viewers to send virtual gifts to broadcasters as a form of appreciation. These virtual gifts can be converted into real-world currency by broadcasters.

Last August 19, Bigo Live was thrilled to hold the return of the annual Bigo Live Philippines Mid-Year Gala. The Gala, held at Revel at The Palace saw the convergence of over 100 Bigo Live broadcasters, hosts, users, agencies and partners. They came together to honor and celebrate the creativity and vibrant culture of the Bigo Live’s thriving, diverse and talented community in the Philippines.
