There are plenty of sites and programs that offer video chats, but which ones are the best? Chatroulette might be the leader, but as such, it has begun to implement a lot of changes that not all users are happy with (although it has helped slightly reduce the number of genitals one sees on an average day’s use). For an alternative to Chatroulette, here are several video chat websites one can try instead.
For starters, there’s the ever-popular Omegle. It’s an old one, but still going strong, with simple controls and the ability to chat with people who have similar interests. Although you do run the risk of every conversation beginning with “asl?” or winding up on “The Art of Trolling,” that’s a chance one must take with every random chat site.
If, however, you’d prefer something more safe, ChatRandom is not only incredibly popular, but one of the safest video chat sites. The conversations are monitored in real-time by real people who will shut down anything illegal they might find, and it provides a variety of chat room types, allowing people to find others with shared interests with ease.
There are also the relatively new FunYo and Streamberry sites. FunYo combines a social network with the video chat, while Streamberry provides a user-friendly site and features to let multiple people watch a video chat at once.
Of course, those are just a few of the alternatives. One can even find reviews for more Chatroulette alternatives on ChatrouletteSites.com, so that they can make their own decisions based on what they want from a video chat site.
Personally, I prefer to chat with people who I actually know, but all of these chat sites are huge, so it shows the demand for random video chats. They’re all free to use, with varying degrees of safety and features, so if you’re tired of Chatroulette, but still want random conversations with strangers, these are some great places to look.
