Chatroulette - Some Peachy Alternatives to Liven Up Your Video Experience



Not Russian roulette - Chatroulette. The most notorious video real-time video conversation website on the internet today. The way Chatoulette works is by connecting you with a random stranger to allow you to video chat with that person and discuss whatever you please. You may not be faced with a participant weilding a loaded gun but the experience can sometimes be just as unnerving. The concept of Chatroulette is great - providing a service that lets people meet new friends and have an uplifting time video sharing. One problem with this concept is the reality that with so much freedom comes the inevitable people who are all to eager to abuse it.

You'll almost certainly be faced with a vast array of men showing their genitalia, performing grotesque actions with their stumps of meat or simply requesting that you expose yourself to them for their pleasure. You might be fine with this, but it eradicates any chance of the video connecting community being anything other than a dating site for sexually repressed men and dangerously young teenage girls. I've compiled a list of similar alternatives to Chatroulette that you may want to check out. Of course they're not all going to be perfect and free from this kind of behavior but some definitely have advantages over Chatroulette. So without further ado let's light 'em up.


  1. Omegle - This started out as a text-only chat but now offers video capabilities. The benefits are such a diverse range of people to connect with and it is also available as an app for iPhone users etc. The downsides are there are many with poor English speaking skills which often makes it hard to communicate.
  2. Kittehroulette - It's got Kittehs! It might not be real time or allow you to connect with anyone. But it cycles through some adorable kittens for your entertainment.
  3. FlirtSpin - All the dating enthusiasts from Chatroulette should migrate here, it's never going to happen, but this site is specially designed for finding partners through it's service. You can determine your sexuality and details to be matched with the appropriate talk partner for video love-making.
  4. Jaydoe - Like Chatroulette this service pairs you with a random stranger, but not just random. It determines who to match you with regarding your interests to give you a partner of whom you share common interests. Helpful for finding interesting people to talk to.
  5. Zupyo - Zypyo lets you search for random strangers based on geographical locations so you can find local people to converse with. If you live in Sweden you'll be paired with a Swedish counterpart with similar interests, not an Australian woman looking to discuss phone directories. Potentially one of the most useful of all the roulettes.


I hope I've enlightened and opened your mind to some new alternatives to Chatroulette that you can investigate at your leisure. Some of the will ultimately be better than others but these were the pick of the crop that I could find. Whether you're looking for your ideal partner/friendship or just a lighthearted conversation with a stranger then you should definitely try out these amazing services. It must be noted that you will undoubtedly be faced with some graphic content, either pornographic or otherwise. There are literally thousands of people on these services and you'll have to search through the majority to find that one person you're looking for. Or maybe you're prepared to actively converse with anyone and see where that leads you. But remember. You'll never have an experience like it again, for better or for worse.
