Our Review

In less than a year after its official release, BeeTalk has reached over 10 million users and has become one of the fastest-growing mobile social app available to download for free in mobile app stores. The app seems to be promising with regards to the features it provides. BeeTalk offers a combination of the highlight features of several popular dating and messaging apps such as Tinder's roulette-type matching, WeChat’s shake discovery method, SnapChat and Instagram Stories self-delete photos, and Messenger and Viber’s secret messaging that auto-deletes. BeeTalk is heavily promoted in Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, and Taiwan, which consequently makes up most of its user base. It has penetrated the Australian market very minimally by only 1%.

Signing Up

BeeTalk Registration
  • Signup with mobile number only
  • SMS verification
  • Option to connect Facebook profile to use in logging in on the app
  • Add phone contacts who are BeeTalk users

Becoming a member in BeeTalk requires that you are ready to give out your personal mobile number to the app. Because the only way to register is signing up via mobile number. A verification code would be sent to that number which needs to be keyed in at the prompt of account verification. After a successful registration, BeeTalk gives you the option to add registered BeeTalk users from your phone contact list. Choosing yes automatically adds them to your BeeTalk friends list, and choosing no would leave you with an empty address book. BeeTalk takes you to your profile dashboard where you can upload your desired profile picture, change your personal BeeTalk ID, and enter in some basic personal details.

Making Contact

BeeTalk Flip Feature
  • Free instant chat messaging function for contacts
  • Radar feature allows you to view profiles of nearby users
  • Flip feature is roulette-type matching
  • End-to-end encryption for messages and media files sent via Whisper Mode
  • Location-based clubs are available for anyone to join
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom

BeeTalk only allows free calls and messages between you and your added contacts. You cannot initiate chat messaging to a user who is not part of your friends list. Although you can send a contact request with a personal message to any user you encounter with. You have the option to enable phone notifications for every message, call, and friend request that you receive. BeeTalk also has the feature called 'Whisper' in which messages and media sent during Whisper mode are automatically deleted after 1-15 seconds depending on your preference. In the light that you have added a friend who turns out to be abusive or offensive, you can simply unfriend the user by clicking on the ‘Delete friend’ option in the chat options.

Profile Quality

BeeTalk Profile
  • All users are able to see other members’ profiles and photos
  • Users can follow a profile to see their video updates in the ‘Video’ tab
  • Profile has a Buzz tab which serves as the user’s newsfeed
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • Profile picture and basic personal details can be changed later

User profiles on BeeTalk show very few details about the user’s interest and personality. The profile feed consists of the photo gallery at the topmost, followed by the user’s friend and follower count. If the user has contributed to any thread in the discovery page, it would be displayed on the profile. Then short details about zodiac sign, school, work, location, and age can be found below. BeeTalk also has a status feature which users can change depending on what they want to say. There is not much detail in BeeTalk’s profile, which is why almost all members seem to have dull and incomplete ones.

Similar to other social networking and dating apps, BeeTalk also has its share of fake profiles in the sense of members using different names and pictures for their profiles.

App

BeeTalk Radar Feature
  • Free to download in Google Play Store and Apple App Store
  • Phone notifications for new messages and interactions
  • Scroll down-type member search and match suggestions
  • No ad interruptions
  • Contact suggestions are rarely refreshed

BeeTalk is only available as a mobile app. And because of its extensive range of features, navigating through the app need some getting used to. The newsfeed function of the app is called ‘Videos’ since BeeTalk advocates more on video sharing. You can view your friends’ videos, as well as the top or recent videos uploaded that are approximate to your location.

There is also a ‘Discover’ tab where you can explore the latest post uploads of people around your area. The Discover tab also has different forum categories, a thread where you can introduce yourself or post your most recent selfies, a gamers lounge, and several more threads started by BeeTalk where users are allowed to contribute their own photos, inputs, and ideas.

Real Life Review

Reading through BeeTalk’s page, before even downloading the app, I was surprised with the with the extent of features that they offer. “This looks promising,” was what I said. So I downloaded it and signed up using my mobile number. I didn’t initially complete my profile—didn’t put a profile photo and didn’t add my phone contacts—my profile was blank. As a 26-year old caucasian male, I just wanted to see if somebody would notice me before I even show my face. Some dating apps have bots and fake profiles that message you even with an incomplete profile. In BeeTalk, I was completely ignored. Scrolling through the search features of BeeTalk, all which were location-based, I found most profiles of ladies showing some skin and their profiles suggest that they were game for something casual. I added some contacts but didn’t get my request approved. Until the third day, when I finally put a face in my profile, requests that I sent that day were approved. I even got messages asking about what I do and where I’m from. One conversation led to a woman asking me to meet up with her. She said she was nearby and was willing to do anything just so she could pay for her dues this month! I didn’t push through with it because I wasn’t really into that.

Overall, I could say that BeeTalk could really get you what you want, as its search features are highly based on your current location. They mostly suggest contacts that are nearby. The only downside I believe is that BeeTalk is not really so popular in Australia so not many people are active in using it.

Design and Usability

The app’s design uses only the brand colours of BeeTalk which are yellow and black. With regards to usability and navigation, finding the different features of the app need some finding. The app interface only displays 5 tab icons which are Look Around, Video, Chat, Discover, and My Profile. The tab name would only be displayed when you click on the icon. To find the Radar and Flip feature, you would need to click on the menu located at the upper right-hand side of the Look Around tab.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
 BeeTalk’s friend finding and chat features are superb. It combines the features of some popular dating apps and free messaging apps. What makes it even greater is that they are absolutely free for anyone to use, and there are no annoying ads that interfere with your experience! BeeTalk prioritises connecting you with other users who are approximate to your location to encourage the building of an actual friendship. However today, BeeTalk users have become tremendously less active—choosing other apps that offer simpler features for chat messaging and friend finding. Therefore if you are solely relying on BeeTalk’s app in making new friends or getting genuine dates, there is only a minimal chance percentage that you actually get to have one. With this, we suggest you look into the other apps we have reviewed in our Dating Apps category.
