Facebook's group video chat app Bonfire starts rolling out

Well, now the company has started rolling out the app, dubbed Bonfire. According to a report by The Next Web, the launch of this app is limited to iOS devices in Denmark. This app will allows up to eight friends to engage in conversation.

Bonfire was first spotted by the Next Web's Matt Navarra, who managed to download it from the Danish App Store - the only country it's now available in.

You are also able to invite other TNW team members to chat on the app. The company didn't say whether it had any plans to make Bonfire available in more markets.

It sounds very similar to Houseparty, another group video chat app that's popular with teenagers.

It lets you take screenshots you can share on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger without leaving the app. These invite notifications enable people to join a chat without having to download the app itself. It said, "We are interested in how everyone uses technology and how we can build great experiences for them".

According to a recent report, the social network's user base of 12-17-year-olds in the United Kingdom and USA will shrink this year, with youngsters "less-engaged" with Facebook than they are with rival social networks. "We already have many great experiences for people to video chat in groups, or as individuals, across the family of apps, including Messenger. We have nothing further to share at this time".
