Dubsmash is a viral video messaging app that lets its users create and share their rich media content. With Dubsmash, users can choose an audio recording or soundbite from movies, shows, music, and internet trends and record a video of themselves dubbing over that piece of audio. Another option would be uploading audio from the user’s device. The video can then be posted on Dubsmash or shared off-platform to Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, iMessage, YouTube, TikTok, Musical.ly, Funimate, Flipagram, to name a few.

The app has a rich library of quotes from movies, TV shows, and other media sources, along with color filters, stickers, and effects allowing the users to make truly unique content.

Last year Dubsmash was acquired by Reddit. Now the app has 1 billion video views per month.

It’s time to delve more deeply into the Dubsmash bugs we found.

Dubsmash proves that short-form video is so compelling that the market can sustain multiple apps by competing with such giants as TikTok or Byte. In the manual tests I’ve run, I’ve discovered several instances when the app was not working the way it was designed to function. Namely, UI/UX and offline mode drawbacks. If Dubsmash keeps growing, it will encounter more issues that come with scale, so the current ones must be fixed asap.
