Imo is an app for video calls, where you can do live streams and join group chats. The majority of functions are available for free, but you can pay for a subscription to get cloud storage and remove ads.
The Main Idea 10/10
With Imo, you can live stream, have chat sessions and video conferences. Upon registration, you will be asked to give the app access to your contacts and verify your phone number, and that's it. You can start and stop live streaming, as well as join ongoing streams, browse streamers, chat with users and send gifts.
Apart from live streams, Imo lets you start video and voice calls with your contacts as well as send texts. The best thing about the app is that the number of calls and messages is unlimited.
Additional Features 9/10
Imo has quite a few cool features that make it fun:
- Make international calls for free.
- Create a group chat with up to 100,000 people and share large documents of any type.
- Customize your profile by adding music themes, backgrounds and avatars.
- Search by phone number, email, home address and name.
- All your chats are synchronized with Imo Cloud free of charge.
If that's not enough, you can also send stickers, choose photos from your library and share them with the world. Additionally, you can record and send looping videos.
Personal Safety 5/10
Even though Imo is meant for people older than thirteen, kids younger than that are still there. This isn't good because app developers do nothing to keep children away from adult-themed content. When people livestream, everyone can interact with them in real time. Real-time chats can be turned off, but there are no parental locks and privacy protection features are rudimentary.
Imo is available on all devices you can think of, including iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows. What's more, you can browse your texts and calls from your Android tablet or desktop. All you need is a working telephone number to finish the registration process.
With Imo, you can interact with other people in various ways. You can text them, start a live stream, send stickers, share photos, record looping videos and more. However, there are no details about message encryption and data protection.
