Bornfire app by Facebook shows up in Apple App Store

Facebook seems to have started rolling out a new video chatting app to select iOS users. As spotted by The Next Web, the new Bornfire app by Facebook was spotted in the Danish iOS App store.

The app description says, “Bornfire is a group video chat app that lets you hang out with your best friends and meet new ones. When you open the app, instantly start chatting with your friends.” The app also takes some hints from Snapchat and Facebook Messenger, letting participants use effects while video chatting with others.

“Use effects to express yourself and take pictures of your video chats to share on Instagram, Facebook, Messenger and more,” adds the app description. The app was on version 1.3 when spotted in the app store. At any given point of time up to 8 users can participate in a group chat.

According to the listing, the app was last updated on September 12 and weighed 168MB. The report says that users can add others in the video chat from the app itself. Those who receive the invitation, get a notification on Facebook. No other details about the app have been revealed.

Last month, Facebook pulled the shutters on Lifestage, a teen-focused networking app that was launched last year. The networking app was launched in August 2016 and allowed teenagers post images or videos on it. Teens were able to post in categories such as like, dislike, how I dance and my best friends.

Facebook said to Business Insider that it “learned a lot from Lifestage” and will “continue to incorporate these learnings into features in the main Facebook app.”

Facebook’s Lifestage app was launched in order to take on Snapchat. However, it looks like Bornfire could be one of the new Snapchat contenders in near future.
