and in March 2009 the site introduced a video conferencing feature.The site now provides a mobile application that lets users chat with strangers from mobile devices. Omegle was initially a text-only chat that paired users at random to communicate as "strangers".
Are you an adult, teen, single, gay, lesbian, or do you prefer one on one private conversation?
This has, however, been met with complaints that bots remain and legitimate use is excessively interrupted.
Prior to early 2013, the site did not censor contributions through a profanity filter, and users may have encountered nudity or sexual content on camera.
In 2013, an unmonitored version of the video chat mode was opened, leaving the original content moderator-regulated video section open to anyone aged thirteen and up as long as the content of his or her video stream is clean.
Initially, questionable adult content in the video section of Omegle was filtered using image recognition algorithms only.
