Omegle is a well-known resource for video communication. The main feature is that the choice of the interlocutor is carried out randomly, that is, you cannot predict who will be your next partner. But now on the Internet, you can find hundreds of such sites. What is the difference between Omegle and other chat-roulettes? Let’s figure it out.
How people communicate there
In order to start communicating with Omegle, you need to go to the official website. At the same time, the minimum age should be 13 years old, people from 13 to 18 years old can use video chat only with the permission of their parents. This limitation is due to the fact that adult content may come across in the chat.
You can communicate with users via video or using chat messages. In the first case, you definitely need a camera and a microphone, and you also need to provide browser and website access to them.
The connection with the interlocutor is carried out instantly, and you do not have to wait, to change the user just click the “next” button or swipe to the left.
In order to stop communicating, you need to press the stop button. The conversation will then be interrupted. Do not forget that you are not the only one who can stop the conversation, so try to keep communication within the bounds of decency so as not to lose a good interlocutor.
The developers approached their work responsibly and created many convenient functions. For instance:
1. The ability to search for an interlocutor, depending on their own interests. It can be films, art, music, sports, and so on. The algorithm will select people with the same interests for more passionate and productive communication.
2. An ability to save the conversation in the chat. It looks a bit like a regular messenger. In addition, you can send a link to the correspondence to the social network.
3. There is a chat specifically for students. You can limit your search to only students in your institution. A link to such a conference can be distributed among friends and classmates.
4. “Espionage” mode. You can overhear other people talking about a certain topic.
5. The presence of a chat for adults. Do you want to talk about sex and be honest? Then you have come to the right place. Here you can calmly discuss adult topics and be sure that no one will overhear you.
All these features set video chat apart from other resources in the field.
When communicating, do not forget about the rules of etiquette. Do not insult other users, for this you may get banned. In order not to alienate the interlocutor, try to avoid topics of politics, morality, religion and gender.
It is also very important not to forget about your own safety. Do not give anyone personal information about yourself: place of residence, phone number, as well as information about parents and relatives. Be careful with sending photos in order not to become a victim of blackmail.
