Two main categories for contents
The contents found on BIGO are sorted into two main categories that users can explore whenever and however they want:
- Game Live: here we can find video games broadcast live via streaming. We'll find gameplay videos and walkthroughs of all sorts of games, including the latest hits of the likes of PUBG, Overwatch or Fortnite.
