Best 50 Chat Rooms

Review by Greg Barrow - Last Updated August 15th, 2018

The Top 50 Best Chat Sites list, is the most complete list of active, English speaking, free chat sites that exist on the web today. The vast majority of these sites do not require membership to login and offer group chat rooms on a variety of topics.

  1. 321Chat

    321Chat

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [CodyChat] + Modifications
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: Yes
    Registration: No

    321 Chat offers webcam chat rooms on a wide variety topics. The chat offers many features and configurable user options which allow chatters to edit everything from overall look and feel of the room to who is allowed to private message you. 321 Chat is one of a limited number of chat sites which allows webcams to be viewed by the entire room which also work on mobile devices. 321Chat.com first opened in 2002, since that time the number of room topics has continued to grow. To date, there are 14 different room topics for various ages, races, religions and sexual orientations.


  2. Chat Avenue

    Chat Avenue

    Number of Chatters: < 5000
    Software: [123FlashChat & Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: Yes
    Registration: No

    Outlasting mega chat hubs like AOL and Yahoo!, Chat-Avenue's (roughly) 4,000 concurrent chatters makes it the web's largest chat site. Chat Ave has come a long way from its origins in 1999. Today they are in the process of creating their own chat software as they transition away from the use of 123FlashChat. For now, visitors to Chat-Avenue have the choice to use Flash Chat or another php based chat. Keep an eye on Chat-Avenue over the next few months for the release, which promises to be both mobile friendly and webcam enabled.


  3. Wire Club

    Wire Club

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: No
    Registration: Yes

    WireClub is a truly wonderful online community. Yes, they require you to register in order to enter their chat rooms but it is a chat experience like no other. Their chat software seamlessly integrates features in a natural and intuitive way. Clicking on a username makes their profile fly out with quick access to their picture, badges won and options to chat, message, friend, block or report. They also have a virtual credit system you can use to give gifts, badges and other fun things.


  4. Zobe

    Zobe

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: No
    Webcams: No
    Registration: No

    Zobe chat is unique*, it has a smooth look and feel we truly appreciate. Buttons glow on hover, menu items and pages slide in and out on click. Zobe offers a quality product with a distinct look which has made the chatters here loyal regulars. But what stands out the most is their "Karma" system. Zobe allows you to earn credits in various ways, the most common, being an active participant in the chat room. While Zobe chat is somewhat mobile friendly, the webpage to login to the chat is not. We were unable to login because the screen would not zoom/size on our phone in such a way to allow us to log in.
    [Zobe.Com & TeenChat.Com are owned by the same company and use the same chat software.]


  5. UK Chat

    321Chat.Com Screenshot

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [Stelivo]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: Yes
    Registration: No

    UKChat is obviously UK based, but there are a fair number of chatters from other English speaking countries such as the United States and Canada. UKChat runs latest version of Stelivo chat which means it is mobile friendly and webcam enabled. Another feature of UKChat which shouldn't go unnoticed is their seamless integration of chatter profiles with their forum. Room titles vary from Lobby, Cafe and Trivia to more specific rooms based on location like Northern Ireland and Wales. Overall, UKChat.com is a great chat site.


  6. KidsChat.Net

    KidsChat.Net

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: No
    Registration: No

    KidsChat.net uses a new chat software called CodyChat that looks beautiful. The chat is easy on the eyes, animations glide by and user options are numerous. Clicking on a chatter gives you quick and easy access to their profile, where you can see all the background information on the user. You can also stream music while you chat but control the volume so it's not over powering. Overall this is a top-notch chat.


  7. TeenChat.Com

    Teen Chat

    Number of Chatters: < 500
    Software: [Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: No
    Registration: No

    TeenChat.Com has the same awesome smooth look and feel as Zobe because they are owned by the same company. But Zobe is a general chat with no real topic of focus and Teen Chat is specifically for teens. The main room hosts nearly 300 chatters with smaller numbers in other rooms like singles, cyber, LGBT and vampire chat. TeenChat.Com is technically mobile friendly but the chat is zoomed out pretty far making it difficult to participate on a mobile phone.


  8. Teen-Chat.Org

    Teen-Chat

    Number of Chatters: < 100
    Software: [Custom]
    Mobile Friendly: Yes
    Webcams: No

This chat software is still in development and should continue to grow and offer new features in the near future.

Today Omegle offers random 1 on 1 (text only) chat for all ages but their famed webcam matching chat is for adults only. The drop in popularity of Omegle was largely due to the rampant erotic content and computer bots infiltrating the system. Omegle is not the global chat hub that it used to be but it still has an incredibly large user base (how many are actual people is unknown).

The website itself could use a re-design as it hasn't had a significant update since its creation nearly a decade ago.

While membership is free and allows you access to group chat, extra features such as the ability private message and enter various topical rooms come at a cost.

    ICQ-Chat offers easy online access to the ICQ chat rooms, found on IRC.

We actually found it quite difficult to get in the chat rooms from the app. So... ICQ-Chat.com makes the list as the best way to reach ICQ channels like #chat, #Students, #20_Something, #30_Something, #40_Something and more.
