What is BuzzHunt Video – Viral Videos & Funny GIFs?

BuzzHunt Video is an app that serves users viral videos and GIFs from around the internet. Limited to users 17 years of age and older, BuzzHunt Video is available only for Android devices, is free to download and use, but does feature in-app advertisements.


BuzzHunt curates all of their videos from YouTube, so it does not feature any original content on the platform and that’s where the similarities end. The BuzzHunt app has the exact same content as YouTube, but without all of the filters and search features.  Users can only find new content by scrolling.


Advertisements are how BuzzHunt Video garners revenue and they are pretty aggressive with their ad play and placement. Some BuzzHunt Video users have even reported links showing on their home screens and that they only disappear after being clicked on.
