Badoo has been completely redesigned

#

If you have downloaded the Badoo app on iTunes or Google Play Store, a few weeks ago, you may have been confused by all of the different features and options in the app. Because now, you can buy virtual roses for other Badoo users, pay to have your profile featured, or try to top up a virtual “battery” to showcase your popularity.

Badoo Bigger Than Dating

Badoo was launched way back in 2006 as a desktop site and it had become a bewildering mess of features.  That has changed with its redesign – the clutter has been removed and made it look more like a modern dating app. There are two main messages that Badoo hints at in its redesign: It is “bigger than dating” and now has a lot of users (340 million as of this writing). The message is pretty obvious really. When you open the app, you’ll see “bigger than dating” displayed below its logo, followed by a live count of the app’s users.

Badoo is really the biggest dating app in the world, with 350 million messages sent per day, 340 million registered users, and 400K daily signups! It’s open and inclusive to everyone. It’s a platform that provides a safe and fun place so people can meet whoever they want, however they want.

Badoo Features

Badoo is part instant messenger, part social network. It features a multitude of familiar features. It has chat, profiles, a messages inbox, instant messaging, a photo album, and a video album to show yourself off.

Badoo, just like other social media apps, allows you to see who has recently checked out your profile. It also allows you to find the people who have favorited you, or check out everyone who has liked you. If you like someone and they like you back, it’s a match! You can review anytime all of your matches before making a move. The app is secured as well. User profiles now has a phone number or social account verification option. Having a verified profile gives you access to the app’s photo verification feature – you can strike a pose to verify your photo and prove that you’re real. No more cat fishing! Other salient features include selfie request, blue tick messages, and 24/7 support.

Badoo is free to download and use. You can earn or purchase credits to unlock additional features, payable by credit card or Paypal. Download here (iOS/GooglePlay)
