Chatspin is a random video chatting app. The app is free, but you can upgrade to a paid account if you wish. It’s the fastest growing random video chat app in the world, and it’s made over 1 billion connections to date.
Chatspin is available as an app for Android and Apple devices and a desktop app. There is no signing up with Chatspin, so you remain anonymous. In fact, you can begin chatting about 30 seconds after you download the app.
On the welcome screen, you’ll select your gender. You’ll also see how many users are online. You’ll see settings as well. You can add an introductory message, and automatically translate any messages you receive into your language of choice. You can add an avatar or photo, and allow it to show when you are in text chat.
You can chat via text or video. If you would like to text chat, turn off the video on the welcome screen. If you would like to video chat, just hit start chat.
Both forms of chat work well. If you would like to move on to someone else, just swipe left. You’ll see the other user’s general location. For U.S. users, you’ll see country and state.
Chatspin Plus gives you more control over who you chat with. You can choose to chat with users from a specific country or users near you. You can also chat with only girls or guys, and video chat in HD.
This gives you more options and more possibilities. If you are interested in meeting people from a different country for friendship or possibly more, Chatspin is an easy way to connect.
If you would like to meet other users for potential dates, you can connect to others near you. Unfortunately, there’s no way to friend the people you chat with to find them later. However, you can exchange contact information to get to know each other better.
Kik is a popular way to stay in touch with people you enjoy chatting with on Chatspin. Kik allows you to create an account with your email. You can then search for people by username or Kik code, and add them to your friend’s list.
Kik is optimal for keeping in touch with people you don’t know well because you don’t have to give out your phone number. It’s particularly popular with younger users.
Down and Dirty
It’s clear when you start chatting that no one is there “just to chat”. They are either looking for some text or video sex on the app, or they are trying to get contact info so they can have naughty fun somewhere else.
There’s nothing wrong with this, as long as both partners are down for it. One thing I did note about the app is that it never went to a “dick cam”. This is a common problem for girls on many chat sites.
You expect a face, and instead, you are greeted with a dick in all its glory. There is a report option on the app, and I would assume that behavior would get you banned.
It states that you aren’t supposed to use the app for any sort of pornographic purpose, but it doesn’t seem to be an issue as long as it’s wanted on both sides.
I did notice a few issues with the app. First, it disconnected quite often when I was in the middle of a chat, which is annoying since there’s no way to find the person again.
Second, you can record your text or video chats. You can record about 30 seconds of text or video. Once it’s done, you have the option to share it or save it to your camera roll. This is a huge privacy concern.
Sure you are anonymous on the app, but with video chat, your face (and possibly other things) would be visible for everyone to see. If you were foolish enough to give your full name in text, you would be identified if someone chose to share that as well.
The other issue is the fact that you can’t save the people you enjoy chatting with so you can find them later. However, it is possible to find them again using their location.
This is much simpler with Chatspin Plus because you can choose the location you are interested in. It’s hit and miss, but at least it makes it possible to find someone again.
Chatspin is a fun alternative to Omegle. You can connect with users all over the world or next door. It’s worth giving a try, and certainly a good value at free for the standard features.
