This is a completely random suggestion. I remember someone posting a picture of a “Byte Bot” a while ago (I’m so sorry that I can’t remember who did ), but it actually made me come up with an idea.
Maybe in some future distant update from now (because I know that the team is very busy addressing things that are way more important right now), we could design our own “Byte Bots” similar to Bitmojis, but a Byte version. I think it’d be cool to be able to display them on the user’s profile and also be able to have them appear animated. Underneath the Byte Bot we could describe anything that we want (from how we feel, what we are up to, who we are collabing with etc.).
If we are collabing or doing something with someone else that has a Byte account and it was planned out in advance, it would be nice to display your byte bot with the other users byte bot in an interacting fashion on your profile and the other user’s profile.
We could use the stars to go to the “Byte Store” to buy outfits and other things for our byte bots (hats, shoes, etc). The Byte Store could also have things that you could buy to customize certain aspects of the app such as skins that you could apply to your profile, special fonts that you could use on your actual byte videos, etc.
Someone mentioned gamification of the app a bit more (I believe it was @_Orange) and I think it’s an excellent idea that could go along with this idea. Maybe opening the app a certain amount of time per week or a certain number of times per week could get you extra stars so you could get more things from the Byte store. And maybe while you’re in the byte store you could watch ad videos to get free stars? I also think that the idea of earning badges for achievements would be a wonderful idea as well.
Idk, obviously you guys can come up with more ideas on what can be done with the stars, but I just wanted to put a general idea out there. I’m pretty sure this would take up a lot of time to code, so ppl on the forums reading this plz don’t expect that I think that the byte team (if they chose to even do this that is) would stop what they are doing to address this now. I know that this would be something that’s done wayyyy in the future .
