If you love Omegle as much as I do, I’m sure the thought has crossed your mind as to whether or not there any other sites out there that really compare to it. To put it simply, there’s basically only one site that even comes close, because most roulette chat sites just don’t offer a text-only version on top of video. That in itself is the main difference, and for whatever reason almost every other popular random chatting site out there does not have both webcam and text options to choose from. It’s weird, because you think the competition would get a clue after seeing the continued popularity of text-only, but it is what it is. Anyway, here’s a list of sites that at least provide a roulette-style chat similar to Omegle’s, even if they don’t have a text-only feature.
iMeetzu is the most similar site like Omegle that I know of, and it was started right after Omegle came onto the scene. First, they were also text-only, and then when Omegle added video they followed suit. However, there are some major differences. iMeetzu has it’s own social network sort of attached to the random chatting, and it also has group cam chat functionality. This gives you an interesting twist on your average roulette site, because a social network built on the stranger community is very unique. Anyway, iMeetzu is the only site I know of that has both text and video options to choose from. Read our full iMeetzu review by clicking here.
Obviously any list of random chat sites is not complete without this major player. Yes, I know, they don’t have a text-only option, but hey, it’s like I said before, literally only one site does that I know of. Anyway, if for some reason you aren’t familiar with Chatroulette, it was the site that really sparked worldwide attention for the roulette chat niche and made the category as popular as it is today. Although it is video-only, it has been featured in South Park, so that’s how you know it’s legit! Read our full review here, or visit them now.
Chatrandom is one of the most popular random chat sites on the market. It only trails Omegle and Chatroulette in terms of visitors, at least as far as I can tell. It has risen to prominence by offering a variety of features. It has the typical roulette video room, but adds on to it with a group live cam chat rooms option, and then a “multi chat” option. These extra two features seem to be very popular, and as far as I can tell have lent a major helping hand in terms of Chatrandom’s success.

You may not have heard of this site before because as far as I can tell it’s relatively new to the scene. Or, if it isn’t new, it has risen in popularity somewhat recently. At any rate, in terms of offerings Streamberry provides two main options: typical random cam chat and group video rooms. It has a lot of users online at any given moment, which is obviously necessary for any site like this to be worth a visit. That being said, although they don’t necessarily provide anything you can’t get somewhere else, they’re probably still worth checking out because a lot of times the types of people that visit different sites can shift dramatically just by virtue of it being a different domain name.

This site was founded shortly after Chatroulette went viral, and it seemed to sort of piggyback on Chatroulette’s fame in order to obtain it’s own popularity. It was initially essentially an exact imitation, but now it has added something extra that does in fact set it apart a bit. If you look for the beta version link you will see that in that version there is a user registration option, and this allows you to then add friends as you use the service, which can be great for keeping track of some great new contacts.

Chatville used to be primarily focused on being a sort of Facebook friendly version of Chatroulette. However, it would seem that idea may have failed, because now Chatville seems to be focused on providing an adult-oriented video chat environment that is not integrated with Facebook at all. This isn’t really a big surprise, when you consider what happened with Airtime. Anyway, this site actually is pretty popular, and the software backing it is pretty legit, so check them out.

With random text chat, roulette video chat, and group webcam chat all in one site, what more can you ask for? Not much. RandomSkip is new, and popular, so make sure you give them a visit!
