Maybe you're having a bad hair day, or maybe you just don't like being instantly visually judged by strangers.
Whatever the reason, sometimes you just want to take a break from the webcam and switch to a text only format.
The most important feature of all is of course the basic ability to video chat, but there's more to it than just that.
I think most people can identify with the feeling of not always wanting to show themselves live on cam while chatting.
To help you stay safe, chats are anonymous unless you tell someone who you are (not suggested! Predators have been known to use Omegle, so please be careful.
If you prefer, you can add your interests, and Omegle will look for someone who's into some of the same things as you instead of someone completely random.
Something else to note about our text chat is that it allows you to only have to upload your images one time per visit to our site.
That means, once you upload the pictures they will be saved for the duration of your visit and you can use them with as many different strangers as you want!
Then of course, once you leave, we will go ahead and delete those images from our server, so you don't have to worry about them staying online forever, if you are concerned about your privacy.
