Chat Roulette Free Webcam Sites

Perhaps one of the best-known, if not infamous, free webcam sites, Chat Roulette is an anonymous webcam service that randomly cycles through connections to other webcam users.

The service earned a reputation as something of a sophomoric and pornographic romp, attracting a wide range of sometimes explicit webcam tastes.

Efforts were made by its creators to "clean up" the content, including changes to the usage terms and a requirement that users register.

Be forewarned that while Chat Roulette can be a safe and fun to way to talk with strangers from around the globe, it can easily shift into a not-safe-for-work (NSFW) site! More »

Omegle, like Chat Roulette, is a free webcam site that offers anonymous webcam and text chatting. Despite its simple design, this site gets plenty of traffic.

If you have an official EDU or similar college email address, you can use it to chat with other Omegle users in school.

On the homepage, Omegle says it monitors all video traffic and to "keep it clean!" Be aware, however, that like any webcam chat website, what you get may easily be less than appropriate. More »
