Omegle is arguably the first site to popularize random (aka roulette) chatting as we know it today. It started out as random text-only chat room when it was created back in March of 2008 by Leif K-Brooks. Random video chat, however, was first started by Chatroulette later on in November 2009. iMeetzu, another popular stranger chat site and the first random chat social network popped up in July 2009, so it was between Omegle and Chatroulette. Either way though, the idea of “random chatting” really started with Omegle, and they have continued to add features such as random video chat and a newer function called “spy (question) mode” that allows you to ask a question and watch two people talk to each other about the answer. It’s really cool, you should give it a try!
At any rate, Omegle continues to keep the text-only stranger chat they started with separate from their video version, so if you aren’t a fan of video this is a great option. They also have an iPhone app for all you Apple heads, so be sure to download that and give it a try when you’re on the road! We definitely recommend Omegle as one of the better chat rooms on the internet, in fact we think it’s so good that we will give it second place, only coming behind one other amazing chat room, iMeetzu. Anyway, make sure to check Omegle out by visiting them at www.omegle.com. Also if you are looking for similar websites check out our other post: Sites Like Omegle.
