is a free online chat website that allows users to socialize with others without the need to register.
The service randomly pairs users in one-on-one chat sessions where they chat anonymously using the names "You" and "Stranger" or "Stranger 1" and "Stranger 2" in the case of Spy mode.
Initially, questionable adult content in the video section of Omegle was filtered using image recognition algorithms only.
The site now provides a mobile application that lets users chat with strangers from mobile devices. Omegle was initially a text-only chat that paired users at random to communicate as "strangers".
However, in 2010, Omegle introduced a video mode to complement the text chat mode, which pairs together strangers who are using webcams and microphones. In 2011, the beta version of a new feature, "Spy Mode", was introduced.
In 2012, Omegle added a special new feature to the text and video modes, the option to input "interest" tags.
Adding interests lets users be paired with a stranger who has something in common with the user.
A user can input as many interests as he or she would like, and if no available match is found, the user is paired with a completely random stranger instead.
In 2013, an unmonitored version of the video chat mode was opened, leaving the original content moderator-regulated video section open to anyone aged thirteen and up as long as the content of his or her video stream is clean.
In Spy (Question) Mode, users have two options; to be the "spy" and ask a question of two strangers, or to discuss a question with another stranger.
As the spy, the user inputs any question for the two strangers to answer or discuss and is able to view the discussion as a third party, albeit without being able to contribute further to the conversation.
Our unique integration of free chat and social profiles allows registered chatters to interact and share pictures and messages without even needing to be in the chat rooms.
Being able to chat on your mobile phone, desktop and connecting with our unique social platform makes well ahead of the competition.
The reason we are still going strong after more than 10 years is that our users love what we do and we love our users for sticking with us.
