22 Random Video Chat Apps

If you are one of those people who are interested in making friends online, this article is perfect for you as we show you some of the best random video chat apps used around the world. Meeting new people is a way to learn about other cultures, customs,s, and even languages and have a good time; what better way to do it than from your Android or IOS device?

In this article, we offer you a list of the best random applications to get in touch with new people, so you can meet them and choose the one you like the most; among which we will mention you can get text, audio, and video chats.

1. Meet Me

This application is ideal for meeting any person, even if they are antagonistic to you, so we recommend that you be open-minded and willing to meet people that ay never have imagined you would meet.

Its operation is very effortless and allows you to locate people near your location and start chatting and making video calls. You can also publish content on your profile (a kind of wall like Facebook) and additional information you want to share, such as musical tastes, art, or, if you are, for a few words, several photos!

This application was born in 2005 as myYearbook, and in 2012, it acquired its current presentation when The Meet Group was created, which also has other applications such as Lovoo. According to group figures, they have more than 4.5 million active users per day.

2. Meet-Up

Even though we are also facing an application with which we can explore practically all kinds of communities of people, Meetup differs from MeetMe due to a specific element: its methodology.

With this app, you will be able to search for groups of people close to you, so the process of meeting new people will be much easier for you: you won’t have to go “one by one” since everyone will stay in a particular place and, just by going, you will meet people as cool as you!

Among the categories of interests that you have available, we leave you with the most popular:

  • Technology
  • Family
  • Nature and adventure
  • Health & Wellness

We remind you that not only you must join an already created group, but you can create a new one and start your group. The figures currently prove Meetup right, with approximately 150+ users joining the platform per minute.

As you can see, they are two different ways of meeting people. Now it’s up to you to choose one.

3. Skout

Skout was not born to deal with its own on MeetMe or similar applications but rather with giant social media like Facebook.

Its operation is practically the same as Zuckerberg’s creation. There are people affiliated with social media from all over the world, and you can add whoever you know or want to know, even making live events (Facebook Live) possible.

Even the interface, from the beginning, reminds us a lot of Facebook. Although there are no official figures, they assure us that, since its inception in 2007, millions of users have chosen Skout as an alternative to meet people.

4. Bumble

We could define it as the Swiss army knife of applications to socialize. It is divided into three:

  • Bumble: “A place for users to find that special someone.”
  • Bumble BFF: “A place for users to connect with new friends.”
  • Bumble Bizz: “A place for users to find mentors, network, and build their career.”

To meet new friends, using location services and complementing them with your tastes and hobbies, Bumble BFF will be your best friend thanks to its simple, clean, and clear style.

5. Ablo

Awarded as the year’s application in 2019 on Google Play, Ablo is designed to meet national and international people, i. e. It allows you to meet people from anywhere in the world!

Precisely for this reason, it has the characteristics that make it different from the rest of the competition, such as the inclusion of a chat with instant translations, so the language barrier will no longer be a barrier.

It also incorporates a series of exciting multimedia options, such as the possibility of uploading videos to a feed (like Tik Tok or Snapchat, for example) and starting live broadcasts to meet and interact with new people. In case you have doubts about whether the purpose of Ablo is to meet new friends, we quote the first rule of this app: Flirting (without the other person’s consent) is not allowed.

Entertaining yourself and Ablo goes hand in hand since the app incorporates “Challenges.” If you meet them, you will receive “Miles,” which will allow you to climb positions in the general “Classification.” You can also have your “Fans.”

You will only need your email to join, although you will also be asked for a phone number as an extra security step.

Ablo is a freemium model application, i. e., free, although it has payment methods options.

6. Yubo

Born in 2015, made up of a group of 15 engineers, designers, data scientists, and marketing specialists based in Paris, France, Yubo is one of the best platforms to make new friends in a fun and safe way.

Its great strong point is the direct ones, admitting up to 10 participants in them, although it also has a chat. It also has thematic “communities” based on user tastes, i. e. You can join a community interested in sports, video games, yoga, etc.

Another exciting element in this app is the inclusion of in-app multiplayer games, among which we have:

  • To Be Honest: is a “free” question game in which the only limit is your imagination.
  • Would You Rather: game of questions, such as “what do you prefer?”
  • Let Them Guess: Inspired by the game “Heads Up!”
  • Draw quiz: drawing game.

Yubo is free, although it also has a payment method called “Power Pack.”

7. Patook

To a certain extent, this application can be considered the “Tinder for friends” its slogan is A platonic friends app, something like an application of spirituality for friends.

This similarity with dating apps is also found in its interface, which works with the well-known swipe right system, allowing you to decide whether you want to try to strike up a friendship with the person by swiping to the right (“accept”) or to the left (“skip” or “leave for later”).

Perhaps this can make you doubt its purpose, but at Patook, they guarantee a strict control of users, facilitating, in fact, the blocking of people who want to “go further.”

In addition, other “extras” of the application are an app, for example, using artificial intelligence to suggest topics to talk about or crossing data to present profiles of friends that may really t you.

Also, you do not lose control over your data: you can always choose what data to share and with whom you share your profile information.

We recommend that you read the reviews of the app in stores. It is usually highly recommended for filtering users well, thus avoiding bots.

It’s free and has a web version for computers in addition to the classic iOS and Android apps.

8. Timpik

We could say that the idea is quite similar to that of GeoKeda, but in a much broader sense and with more professional purposes, since this app is even helpful for those who seek to make that leap in a sport they practice by connecting so many athletes, agents, and societies.

But it also has an amateur side, which allows you to chat or video chat with friends and colleagues to get together and play football, basketball, or any other sport. How often has it happened to you that one or two players are missing?

9. Fever

This application is one of the simplest and, at the same time, one of the ones that “least” allow you to do: you have to choose the city where you live (check your city on the list) and a series of events will appear at the same time that you can attend if you like.

It is a reasonably indirect, simple, and discreet way to meet people. Many people like it for this: its simplicity and the possibility of casually going to places you have never been with people you do not know. Still, it also allows you to video call before the meeting.

Likewise, you can also create your event and invite whoever you want!

10. Paltalk

If you remember the style of random chats in rooms with the possibility of being in several simultaneously and having private conversations, Paltalk is what you are looking for.

Although it is not the most famous on the list, it mixes the old or classic with the new communication systems very well: forming an excellent result. Also, as an extra, you can use it from your computer without any restrictions or problems.

You can also chat via video call or voice call, which can substitute for services such as FaceTime or Skype.

11. OKAY

OKAY is a great way to meet new friends. This is a random video chat app for meeting new people.

The app picks someone else at random and connects you instantly, so you can video chat with people from anywhere. Chats are anonymous unless you decide to tell someone who you are to keep you safe. And you can always stop a conversation at any time.

If you prefer, you can enter your interests, and the app will search for someone who shares interests with you instead of someone random. You will be able to send messages privately and block and report abusive users.

12. Badoo

Badoo is a successful social media to chat, meet and share hobbies with other people. A community of more than 494 million people, in which you only have to enter your profile and indicate the type of people you want to meet.

The platform constantly ensures safety and respect within the community. Inappropriate behaviour is not tolerated, and they have strict usage guidelines. It offers a 3-step verification process that, once completed, will allow you to choose to only interact with other verified profiles.

It is a simple and fast way to quickly find friends in your area and connect with them through video calls.

The platform also has paid features that you can purchase separately: Badoo Superpowers. You can appear as featured in searches and gain visibility in other people’s eyes.

13. Couchsurfing

“You have friends all over the world, you just haven’t met them yet.” That’s the motto behind Couchsurfing, an app that lets you connect with a global community of more than 10 million travel enthusiasts in 200,000 cities.

With it, you will not only be able to stay anywhere in the world for free, but you will also be able to experience an authentic cultural exchange. You will be able to find hosts anywhere in the world instead of staying in hotels and discover first-hand the local culture and customs of each country and save you some money that will come in handy for your trip.

An application with which you will never travel alone again.

14. Gravy Work

If you need to have contacts in the world of work, this application will allow you to video chat with people from your work and match them—an effective method of matching employers with workers available for work.

It has advantages for both. It allows workers to have complete control over their schedules. It will enable employers to find and hire trusted and talented staff right from their phones in a few simple steps.

Plus, the app takes care of everything—the payment to the workers and the taxes.

15. Pure

This application allows you to find new people and share the experiences you have always dreamed of, all in your privacy. There are no names, and there are no links to social networks. Chats are end-to-end encrypted and automatically deleted after 24 hours unless you want them to last longer. In addition, what you share in conversations will not be able to be saved.

You will have 60 minutes for the conversation to flow and the friendship to fruition. After that time, all your information is removed from the servers and is not stored anywhere.

If what you are looking for is a fun experience, you will get it with this application since it has been developed to meet people around you quickly. I mean, you won’t know who they are.

16. Waplog

It is an application to meet people close to you and from different parts of the world.

You can share your favourite moments in stories and meet people from different parts of the world. You can select them based on your interests or let chance match you up. You also have the option of simultaneous translation of chats so that the language is not an impediment.

Although the application is free, the Premium version has more complete and dynamic functions so that you have the best possible experience.

17. Tinder

With 30 billion matches to date, Tinder is the most popular dating app. You can use it to meet new people, expand your network of contacts, and get closer to the locals when travelling or simply because you like to live life.

Using the app is easy and fun. You will have to swipe to the right if you like someone or to the left if you don’t. You have to select the profiles that interest you and chat with them. And then put the cell phone aside to meet them in person and build something great together, but you can have a video chat before it.

It has a limited free version. If you opt for the paid version, you can talk to many people.

18. Telegram

It is one of the best options right now to chat. Not only because it has more and more users, but because in addition to individual chats, it also allows group chats. It’s a great option to be in contact with all your friends and meet people you didn’t know until now.

Today there are groups of all kinds. Whatever you’re interested in, be sure to get into a group that talks about those things. Try this app, and you will not be disappointed. It also includes high-quality encryption and video calls.

19. Meetic

It is another of the most used apps to meet people. This app is paid, which means that it is not usually used by young people but is generally used by workers who can afford to have a quality video chat, even if this means paying a small fee per month.

Through this app, you will be able to flirt and meet friends. It is complete and is one of the best results in recent years. It has many filters that allow you to find the people you want to meet. We must add a team of experts who will help you resolve any questions you may have.

20. WhatsApp

 We include it because it is the most important, but indeed you already have it installed on your mobile, and it may be the app you use the most to chat with your friends and family. If you don’t have it yet, we invite you to install it right now. It’s free, and indeed the vast majority of your contacts are in this app to talk to them through video chat.

And not only is it the leading app in the mobile chat sector, but it is also an app that continues to increase the number of users. And as if that weren’t enough, in addition to the chat, you can send images and videos or even make calls. It is complete and safe.

21. Secret

This app is slightly different from others in this list, but it is good to mention it as a random chat app.

It is one of the applications hitting the hardest in anonymous apps. With it, we will be able to publish confessions completely anonymously so that some of the contacts on your schedule can read them without ever knowing who wrote them.

Once those friends like a confession and hit the “Love” button, that Secret will become a rumour and start sharing among that person’s network of contacts. Rumours fly, and with this app, we will realize how quickly they do.

22. Whisper

It is a direct competition of Secret, but it is not linked to the plan with the difference. With Whisper, we will launch our whispers. These can be read according to their category and geolocation, giving the user the possibility of exploring all the stories published around him.

Every time a whisper is published, Whisper generates some keywords related to what has been written and proposes a background image that we can change. Users who read us will be able to mark our whispers as favourites and answer us but always maintain anonymity. Later, it’s up to you to provide your identity.

And remember, much of the effectiveness of an application that we recommend is affected, to a great extent, by your attitude towards meeting new people, so we recommend that you be cordial, respectful, kind, and friendly.
