What We Like
YapChat is what the future of chatrooms is all about with loads of customization options and the ability to use the service without signing up. The fact that users can create their own chatrooms means that the topics available are much more interesting than standard chatroom topics and there is always thousands of people online.
What We Don’t Like
The only small drawback to YapChat is that it is powered by the same company that runs iWebcam and DareChat meaning you are likely to see the same features and rooms on all three sites. However, this also means that more people are available to chat with on all three sites.
If you’re looking for traditional chatrooms with a modern twist, check out YapChat. This is chatting of the future with the ability to create rooms, customize your experience, and chat over webcam, voice, and text. You are sure to have loads of fun with the thousands of other users and with no sign up required you have nothing to lose by checking it out.
