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".
In April 2016 we've hit a new milestone, that of conviction number 600! On average, 50 convictions a year for twelve years now.
We've been working hard behind the scenes, still hitting the rooms and working with police. For those of you who only know us from "To Catch a Predator", we were working hard before TCAP and we're working hard after TCAP.
To illustrate that, this isn't just a note about our 600th conviction, but rather that we're shooting beyond 600 with two convictions scheduled to be posted each week until mid-June. We've been getting convictions now since our first... If you'd like to help us push towards 700, swing by our forums and say hello on our discord.
We're taking volunteers for every position, from chat contributor to content creator to phone verifier and all that jazz.
As the spy, the user inputs any question for the two strangers to answer or discuss and is able to view the discussion as a third party, albeit without being able to contribute further to the conversation.
