Chat Wing has been around since about 2003 working hard to build a responsive, mobile ready chat platform with custom App development and distribution. We like this company a lot. ChatWing has developers working to stay ahead of the curve rather than waiting for something to go wrong. Chatwing has all the features you'd expect from a quality chat site except for one glaring omission... No webcams. We understand it costs bandwidth / money to host and broadcast live cams to an entire room but a chat without webcams on a desktop computer is a bit of a let down.
ChatWing offers a great service at a low price and free is a great place to start. "Lite Chatbox" is their free option that allows unlimited users! Webmasters can upgrade for additional features like social login, customization and branding options. The first paid option starts at about $11 and the price differential between ChatWing and its competitors only grows with additional features and room size.
Mobile is where ChatWing thrives. The room looks great on all phone and tablet displays. Avatars are reasonably sized and text is clear and easy to read. Features like font color, user list, emojis and file transfer options are tucked away yet accessible.
ChatWing is the only company we have seen that allows you to have your own branded chat App ready from The App Store and Google Play. You can even monetize it with In-App Purchases. Upload your own logo set your title and description and you're good to go.
ChatWing feels more like an amazing mobile chat App than a chat site for desktop users. The minimalist design allows the chat run smoothly and keeps the screen unobstructed by tools and options that are rarely used. However, desktop chatters expect webcams in some form. Ideally you would want the ability to broadcast your cam to the entire room. Alternatively you should be able to have 1 on 1 cam sessions.
