A roulette style chat site, FlipChat connects you with other users randomly via webcam. The site itself is very clean and modern, with everything you need on the one page and large buttons that make selecting options easy. The chat platform takes up the whole page and is a good size for seeing your webcam and other webcams, with ‘start’, ‘stop’, and ‘report’ buttons across the top. The site is completely free to use and you are able to start chatting straight away as a guest, simply click the ‘start’ button and allow the site access to your webcam. However, there is also the option of creating a free account which unlocks a host of features including adding other users as friends, only connecting with girls or guys, and selecting to only see users from a certain geographical location. There are also other in-chat options such as audio volume on your and your partner’s webcam, only connecting with people displaying a webcam, and clean chat only.
As a guest, you can use the roulette chat feature as much as you like but are limited in the filtering options and who you connect with. Creating a free account automatically unlocks all features including:
• Easy to use interface
• Start chatting in two clicks
• Chat via webcam, audio, and text
• Choose to only connect with girls or guys
• Filter the location of potential partners by country
• Easily adjust the audio and cam settings
• Only connect with people displaying a webcam
• Choose clean chat for less nudity
• Report users who are inappropriate
What We Like
Although FlipChat doesn’t offer too much that is different to many other roulette style sites, we are very impressed by the simplicity of navigation and how quickly the software connects you to other users. It is slightly frustrating that you have to create an account to avail of the full range of features, however, we feel it is certainly worth doing so and it only takes a few seconds.
What We Don’t Like
The ‘clean chat’ option on FlipChat is a great idea, however, it doesn’t seem to work as desired. We tried activating clean chat only to continue to see lots of nudity. We understand that it can be hard to control what other people are displaying, however, the clean chat button seems more like an accessory than a real function.
FlipChat is a great way to meet other people online in a fun environment and offers users who sign up a host of features to choose from. The site is easy to use and runs very quickly which is always a bonus if you’re skipping through webcams to find someone to chat with. The ability to use the site as a guest is excellent, as it allows you to decide if you like the service before signing up.
