You’ve probably seen your friends post a screenshot of it and you want to know what it’s all about. Well, it’s called Bondee, and it’s essentially a new social media app that looks like you’re playing The Sims.
For a quick background, Bondee is developed by a company called Metadream, which is based in Singapore with operation teams in South Korea and Japan. Today, we’ll take a detailed look at this game-slash-social-media platform.
What is Bondee?
Its official website describes it as a “virtual world that simulates living with friends”. You can create your avatar, design your own studio condo-sized space, visit your friend’s space to hang out, or better yet, create and live in a single space together.
How to create an account on Bondee?
Step 1: Download the Bondee app available on Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
Step 2: Tap Sign up.
Step 3: Type your mobile number and wait for the verification code.
Step 4: Enter the 4-digit verification code sent to you via text message.
Step 5: Input your birthday to verify your age. You must be 13 years old and above to use Bondee.
Step 6: Type your full name.
Step 7: Enter your preferred username.
Step 8: Finally, input the password you want to use.
Can you customize your Bondee avatar?
Just like The Sims, Bondee allows you to create an avatar that’s fully customizable to match your skin tone, face shape, hairstyle, facial hairs, eye and nose shape, and more.
In addition, you can also customize your outfit with different shirts, pants, socks, shoes, eyewear, and other accessories. It’s up to you to mix and match.

Can you customize your own space or apartment in Bondee?
Again, similar to The Sims, Bondee lets you customize your own space, albeit much smaller — only roughly the size of a studio-type condo unit. Alternatively, you can design and live in a single apartment with a friend.
Your space, just like the design of your avatar, is a display and expression of your personality and likes, so make sure to get creative. Designing your space involves choosing from different beds, sofas, tables, wall decorations, musical instruments, appliances, and more.
How to socialize with friends on Bondee
Much like Instagram, Twitter, or any other social media platforms, your friends can look you up using your username. You can also use mobile numbers, Facebook Messenger, or Viber.
And just like a real social media website, you can share moments using images, texts, and chat with friends. With personalized avatars, chatting with friends will feel a bit more real and intimate.
These are the things you should know about Bondee. Being just a brand-new game, and considering that it’s gaining some steam, we expect to see more from this new platform — unless the hype dies fast.
