The Omegle website will work on any device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.
Omegle pairs users to chat, via text or video, or both. If users have provided information about themselves and their interests, Omegle will pair users with shared interests.
On the home page, users can enter information about their interests or immediately launch a chat with a stranger by selecting the ‘Text’ or ‘Video’ button. Often, initiating a chat in ‘Text’ quickly leads to the ‘stranger’ you’re paired with sharing their phone number or ‘Kik Messenger’ ID so that users can connect with one another and move their conversation elsewhere. This just seems to be a way many users choose to use the website.
