If you’ve seen a lot of adorable avatars on your social media this past week, you might be wondering what that’s all about. It’s the miniature world of Bondee, where you can dress up, design your room, and hang out with friends. Launched last week by Singapore-based company Metadream Tech Pte. Ltd., Bondee is a meta-universe social networking app that allows you to interact with your friends through avatars. Think The Sims, but with your real life friends. In fact, one user described it as having Facebook, Telegram, and The Sims in one app.
The avatar represents you in the virtual world of Bondee. You can use it to interact with your friends, engage in different activities, and meet new people.
@kailuvzsx not really a game but you could interact with your friends w this <3 #bondee #fyp #☆ ♬ i must apologize –
From what we’ve seen so far, the basic look of a Bondee avatar is similar across all users, but they do show adorable emotive faces. On top of that, you can choose among thousands of trendy outfit options to give your avatar a fresh new look everyday. Cute, chic, elegant, sexy, lazy — you can dress up your avatar according to whatever style you want.

Once you’re done dressing up your avatar, you can then decorate your own room. Each user gets to design a small cube-shaped space, where you can place all your favorite items. You can choose what furniture to put around the room, and you can also upload photos that you can put up on your walls.

When you enter the meta-universe, Bondee opens directly to a virtual plaza featuring all your friends’ avatars. You can double tap on their avatars to interact with them. Hang out in their rooms or chat with them via live messaging.

You can also leave a status for your friends to see. Your status can be a photo or a personal animated emoji to showcase how you’re feeling that day.

Aside from being a virtual hang-out space with your friends, Bondee also allows you to meet new people. The app has a feature where you can ride a boat and explore the sea. There, you can pick up drift bottles to interact with others.
เมื่อคืนล่องเรือทิ้งไว้ เช้ามาเช็คดูเจอภาพถ่ายติดวาฬด้วย รู้สึกดีมากๆแล้วเมื่อกี้ก็ไปล่องมาอีกเจอฝูงนกพร้อมกับทุ่งดอกไม้กลางทะเลเบย เราว่าเป็นอีกเกมนึงที่ฮีลใจได้มากๆเลยแหล่ะ #bondee pic.twitter.com/tc0bsOtr8C

Each bottle has a message, which you can respond to so you can make new friends. Or you can throw your own bottles, which others can pick up to reply to your message.
This is a perfect use of the ‘throw a bottle’ feature on Bondee HAHAHAHA pic.twitter.com/3ckH0SgfYL
