The internet has introduced us to a whole new world of opportunities, and with the rise of social media and chat websites, connecting with others is now easier than ever. If you like the idea of socializing with a stranger, Omegle might be worth a try. It is a free chat website where you can connect with a stranger from anywhere in the world. Sounds fun, right? Additionally, there is no need to download an app to use it on your phone as the website works on mobile as well. But, if you’re using an iPhone, you’re probably wondering how to use Omegle on iOS. Continue reading the article to find out more about this.
How to use Omegle
Using Omegle is as easy as visiting the “Omegle.com” website and selecting the text or video chat option. You can also add your interests about the things you would like to talk about. After doing so, you become connected to a stranger with similar interests.
To use it on your phone, you need to follow the same set of instructions after opening the browser. If you are an iOS user, the process is somewhat different as you will not find the video chat option on the website. So how do you use Omegle on iOS? You will be happy to find that there are two very easy ways to do this.
1. Request a desktop website option
The first option is to look at the desktop version of the Omegle website on iOS. For this, you need to open the Safari browser and visit Omegle.com. If you are using iOS 13, the desktop version can be requested by clicking on the “aA” icon on the top left hand corner before the address bar. IOS 12 or earlier users need to tap and hold the update button next to the address bar and select a desktop location.
3. Download puffin browser
The second option to use Omegle on iOS is to link to the site on the Puffin browser. It is free to download from the App Store and you will be asked to watch a one-time video. You can enable the “Always Desktop Site” from the browser settings and then use Omegle video chat.
Features of Omegle
Launched in 2009, this website has taken the online chat situation to the next level. A feature that makes Omegle stand out is that no registration is required. This means that your details such as name and location will be anonymous until you share it with the stranger.
In 2010, the video chat option was launched and was very well received by users. Once you select the video chat option, you and the stranger can see and talk to each other. The video chairs will be monitored to monitor for any unwanted activity and policy violations.
Omegle now allows you to use the “Spy Mode”, where you can ask a question to two strangers in conversation. As a spy, you can watch the conversation between the two strangers you asked the question. By using the spy mode, you can also discuss the question a spy asked you with another stranger.
Things to keep in mind when using Omegle
As with all other social media websites and online chat platforms, you need to be careful while using Omegle. The Website is only recommended for people aged 18 and over. Can be used by children over 13, but only under parental supervision. This is because there have been cases of predators using Omegle to target small people.
Another cause for concern is that it is not possible to stop small children pretending to be adults. While the videos are customizable, there is an unchanged section from where they can access explicit content. Enjoy socializing, find people with similar interests, and make new friends by using this platform carefully.
