These days chat is getting something of a makeover with a range of weird and wonderful new ways to connect to random people around the globe.
Welcome to Chatroulette, a website that connects you to online people randomly.
To use it, simply connect your webcam (if you have one), surf into chatroulette.com, and click ‘scan’. Chatroulette will connect you with another web user in a few seconds. You’ll be able to see and hear them, and they’ll be able to see and hear you.
A word of warning, however: chatroulette.com is uncensored and the connections random. While there is a code of conduct in the terms and conditions page (including keeping your clothes on), this sort of random anonymity has been known to bring out bizarre behaviour in some users, so use discretion when using chatroulette.com and please, for everybody’s sake, don’t be THAT guy.
