TalkWithStranger Review December 2019

TalkWithStranger is a chat community for people who are looking for chat rooms, groups, forums, and online multiplayer games. It has free random chat features inside private chat rooms with video, text, and voice chat services.

Members are free to discuss all sorts of topics including sex, politics, and religion. The site is moderating the forum threads, but the content is entirely user-generated. Despite this, it accepts teen members as long as they are at least 13 years and have parental permission to use the free chat website.

Is TalkWithStranger a suitable place to find a date? Find out about this information and more in this review.

Registration Process

  • You only need a working email address to create an account on TalkWithStranger.
  • Email verification is not required.
  • You can use the site immediately after creating the account.
  • The minimum age restriction is 13 years old.
TalkWithStranger Register

According to TalkWithStranger's terms and conditions, you must be at least 13 years old and above to join the site. However, there is no way to verify the identity and age of the people who create an account or visit the chat rooms. Registration can only take a few seconds, but it is effortless to create fake accounts as the verification process is not required.

You can start chatting with random people anonymously by changing the words "Someone" to your username and clicking on the "Let's Chat" button. You can do this even without creating an account. This section is also available on the homepage of the site.

If you want to save your game progress, you must create an account before you start playing. TalkWithStranger has a lot of good multiplayer games that you can choose from. Being able to save your game progress is one of the benefits you will have by registering an account.

Profile Information

  • Profile pictures are visible for everyone.
  • You can send a personal message by clicking on the profile photo.
  • You can add a text to your profile information.
  • You can only upload one profile photo.
  • There are a lot of fake profiles.
TalkWithStranger Profile Information

As is the case with other chat sites, TalkWithStranger has a lot of fake users. There is no profile photo guideline, and you can use almost any profile photo that you want. It is noticeable, however, that nearly no one uses their real images. Instead, they upload pictures of cartoon characters, animals, flowers, etc. that they took from the internet. Profile photos are also scaled small that you will need to click on them to see them clearly.

Just basing on the profile alone, it seems like it is impossible to get a real date as you will not be able to see how they look like or even get a glimpse of their personalities. No separate page will show a member profile. Instead, a small pop-up box showing a photo, a username, and chat buttons act as the main profile page.

There is no functionality where you can add a paragraph about yourself. Directly having a conversation with the other person is the key if you want to know more about him or her.

Contacting Members

  • Public chat rooms are available.
  • Anyone can create forum threads.
  • A public chat room dedicated to dating is available.
  • You can play multiplayer games with other users.
TalkWithStranger Contacting Members

The random chat feature allows public chat with strangers, and there is no way of telling if a person is a minor or not. You will only have to rely on what the other person is telling you. Good thing, most users avoid contact with minor as evident in some chat conversations we have collected. A particular user immediately left the chat after finding out that he was talking to a 15-year-old female.

You will not be able to know beforehand if you will be partnered with a male or a female. You will need to ask for their age, sex, and location as it will not be indicated in any way especially if you came across him or her in the random chat feature.

Sending photos is allowed, but the other person has to accept the file that you are sending. Most people use this opportunity as a way to advertise their websites as links are not allowed in chat boxes.

App

  • All the functionalities on the site are available in the app.
  • The app is free to download.
  • Android and Apple users can download the app.
  • The app is easier to use if you want to experience video and voice chat.
  • You can mark chatrooms as a favourite using the app.
  • You cannot play the games using the app.
  • You can download the games if you want.
  • You can create an account using the app.
TalkWithStranger Mobile App

TalkWithStranger's functionalities are easier to use if you are on the app. Compared to the app, the desktop version is a bit cluttered with advertisements. The actual chat box space is a smaller portion only of the entire page as ads take most of the window's area.

Overall, the app is a better choice if you wish to try out TalkWithStranger. The photos are better scaled inside the app, and the chat rooms are better sorted. It is easier to send a voice message using the app as it directly uses the mobile microphone, unlike the desktop version which gets a few errors when accessing the device. 

The only downside to using the app is that you can't open two or more chat rooms at the same time. You can only do this on the desktop version.

Special Features

TalkWithStranger may be a free site, but it has a lot of unique features available to its members:

Real-Life Review

I came to see if I can maybe find a date or two in TalkWithStranger but ended up spending the most time playing games. My favourite is the Adventure Time game. It's a classic 8-bit game that I play together with other online members. I downloaded the game to my phone after gaining so many rewards and winning up levels. I felt like finishing the game. It was so fun. Sad to say, I was not successful in finding a date. Even their dating chat rooms are inactive most of the time I am online. I had a few flirting experiences in the random chat, but that's it. I enjoyed my time playing, but this is not the place for dating in my opinion. -Carolyn, 21, Student

Summary

TalkWithStranger will work for you if you are looking for a free chat site with good gaming features. However, it does not seem to be very reliable when it comes to dating. The dating feature is only a small part of the community, and it does not prove to be the most active. In addition to that, there are a lot of minors you don't want to get entangled in a relationship with. If you are looking for other dating site options, check out our Dating Sites category.
