This is the site that literally started it all. Omegle was the first app website in existence to bring about the basic 1-on-1 random chat room format. If you don’t know much about the history of the whole random video chat site niche, you might have thought Chatroulette came out first – nope! Omegle was first on the scene, way back in 2009, but back then it only had a text only version, there was no live video chatting. Obviously, they ended up adding it in later, shortly after Chatroulette burst onto the scene and went viral. Then, slowly but surely, Omegle climbed and climbed up the popularity ladder until it became number one in the category, where it still resides to this day. And, I can’t say I’m surprised, because they’ve made the right changes along the way to really be a first class service.

First, they maintained their text only chat room choice, which kept them from alienating people who either prefer not to always be live on cam or want to use their app from a device that may not work with webcams. Second, they added in moderators to help address the continuous problem of people getting naked on video. The combination of those two things plus a few other extra nice little features has kept them in the top spot among all the random chat apps sites, and I don’t think that will be changing any time soon. Omegle has been under attack for years with new similar websites popping up left and right, but to no avail. Their name recognition combined with their reliability, speed, and features are just too much for anyone to overtake them any time soon. If you feel like visiting them now, here you go:
