What is Omegle? Omegle is a video chat application for communicating with complete strangers. It offers private rooms to connect with millions of people around the world. In this article, we discuss some of the app’s key features, as well as some additional information.

Key features

Here are some of the main features of the Omegle app:

  • Talk to strangers: Bringing people together (and anonymously) is Omegle’s main point. The app offers users the possibility to meet strangers and learn amazing stories.

  • Text: What is good about Omegle is that people are free to use text messages only, without having to show their faces.

  • Video chat: In addition to the previous feature, Omegle supports video chats - this is great for knowing better the people you meet.

  • Dorm chat: This feature is available only to those who have a .edu email and allows students to talk together.

How does Omegle work?

On your mobile phone, open Omegle and grant the app the necessary permissions. You can connect to the app through your Facebook or Google account. Before you can start chatting, you'll need to include your name, age, and gender. You can then add a profile picture and confirm that you allow the use of the camera, microphone, and location. You can then set other chat details, such as language, receive notifications, and validate who you want to talk to (men, women, or everyone). You can also search for people depending on your interests and enable the video call mode.

When the configuration is complete, the search engine will find your contacts. If you like the person, click the V button; if you don't like him or her, click the X button to start a new chat with another person.

Is Omegle safe?

Before installing Omegle we recommend reading the official Privacy policy. Please note that the policy states that it records “a timestamp, as well as IP address, ID cookie, and similar information for you and your chat partner.“

Is Omegle dangerous? When it comes to safety and namely child safety, the Omegle chat has been subject to controversy after an investigation carried out by the BBC.

Since 2013, Omegle uses a monitored video chat in order to monitor misbehavior (potentially harmful content, nudity, or sexual content). However, this feature seems to be only partially effective.
