Chat Hour Review October 2018

Chat Hour is a chat-related kind of dating website. It is basically a site where users can join different chat rooms. Some of these chat rooms are created by Chat Hour members and are about different topics. You can see gender and location-based chat rooms, and choose from over a hundred different topics. Joining a chat room is the most highlighted feature of the site. You can also meet and chat with specific users. Through this, you are able to connect with people in a more personal sense.

Chat Hour can be accessed without a registration. Plus, you do not have to upgrade to any membership because all of its features can be used for free. Through this review, you can get to know whether Chat Hour can give you a different chatting experience.

Signup Process

  • Fast and easy
  • Optional registration
  • Account needs to be verified
  • No login via third-party apps
  • Create an account in 2 minutes

Registering in Chat Hour does not take too much time. In just a couple of minutes, you can join chat rooms or do some private chats with other users. But first, you must have a valid email address. The site will send your account's verification code or activation link in your email, and then you can verify your account. However, you can still join other chat rooms even without being registered. You will be signed as a guest, but you can only join limited free chat rooms. 

Profile Information

  • Profile information is not accessible publicly
  • Edit anytime
  • Profile detailedness is up to the owner
  • Photo gallery is viewable by everyone
  • Photos must pass regulations

Setting up an account in Chat Hour is interesting. There are four different sections for you to answer. First are the basic questions, like your ethnicity, sexual orientation, what you're looking for, your status, and how often do you use the site. Next is your personal information questions, like your first name, contact numbers, your other social media accounts, and other venues in which you can be contacted. The third one is for the wordy descriptions about yourself or anything you want your visitors to read whenever they go to your profile. The last section is for other information you might want to tell and share, such as your physical attributes, hobbies, interests, and achievements.

You can also upload numerous photos, but they must meet the requirements in terms of file size and what they should not contain. Each photo can be set as either public or private. Only your friends can see your private pictures and vice versa. These pieces of information you share are only accessible to your friends. Only those basic details are seen by everyone. 

Making your profile detailed can be very helpful to make you stand out among other users. 

Contacting Members

  • Create or join different chat rooms
  • Send private messages or mails
  • Search other users via quick search
  • Look for specific members using their usernames
  • Send friend requests or add them to favourites
  • Unregistered users have communication constraints

Chat Hour might seem like a usual chat-related site, but it offers different ways of connecting people together virtually. The fastest and the most basic way for you to use the site is to directly join chat rooms as a guest. However, as a guest or a non-registered user, you are only allowed to entre chat rooms and join the conversation thread but not send private messages. To be able to maximise your contacting possibilities, you need to create an account. As an eligible user, you have the privilege to use all the contacting features of Chat Hour, and they are all for free.

Aside from joining different chat rooms, you can also host or create a new chat room with the topic of your choice. Additionally, you can search for members by their age, location, gender, or directly by their usernames. You can also send them instant messages and emails. Plus, you can send 5 friend requests every day. However, you can only set 50 profiles as your favourites.

Chat Hour contacting options can really contribute to your online dating success. 

Special Feature

Create Chat Room

Chat Hour Create Chat Room

There are hundreds of available chat rooms with different topics, such as love, sex, relationships, career, hobbies, religions, etc. These themed chat rooms are created by Chat Hour's users, and you can, too. Through this feature, you can create a chat room with your own chosen topic. You can also set it as either public or private. 

Chat Hour App

  • Available for both Android and iOS users
  • Free to download via Google Play Store and Apple App Store
  • Easy to use and navigate
  • Simpler to use than the web version
  • No chat room-like feature

You can enjoy using Chat Hour anytime and anywhere through its mobile application platform. The app can be downloaded via Google Play Store and Apple App Store for free. Unlike the web version, where the chat room is the most highlighted feature, it is quite different in the app. The Chat Hour mobile app is designed for sending direct and instant messages. You can also see other users' photo thumbnails, so it will be easier for you to search for interesting users to chat with. 

Usability and design wise, the app version is simpler to use compared to its desktop version. More organised features and readable fonts are what you can expect from the app. 

Field Test

It was a gloomy and boring weekend for me, that's why I thought about something that can kill my boredom. I tried to look for websites where I can chat or talk to someone, to a stranger. Then I saw this kind of dating site where I can entre and join chat rooms. It was a smooth registration process, I only had to verify my account using the verification code that was sent to my email. 

There's a lot of chat rooms to choose from. I chose the chat room for movie lovers because I really love watching movies. Unfortunately, the room wasn't active at that time. That chat room was empty. So I just tried joining the main chat room where most users go to. However, most chatters had their own topics, so it was quite hard for me to join and follow their conversation. Good thing it was possible to search for other users and chat with them privately.

I searched for female users ages 25-30. I saw gorgeous profiles and sent them friend requests and instant messages. I was only allowed to send 5 requests, and none of them replied to my messages during that day. Though it was a nice try using Chat Hour, maybe the site is not for me.

Summary

Before the booming of social networking sites and mobile dating apps, these chat room based websites are what people typically used over the past 10 years. They go for these websites to connect with others from anywhere in the world.

Chat Hour made some innovations to give its users a variety of ways to connect with other people. Yet, it seems that the site cannot give its users a secured community. Because the site can be accessed without a registration and users only use nicknames, it would be an easy venue for wrongdoings. 

Usability wise, there's no question about the site being a bridge to connect people together. Still, the safety of users (registered or non-registered) should never be compromised.
