What is Chatruletka?
Chatruletka is an anonymous online video chat platform. Also known as ‘chat roulette’, the platform pairs people randomly for a video chat, with only a country and gender specified by the user. No names, friend lists or conversation histories are stored, so finding people again is purely left to chance. Chatruletka has no age rating, signup process or age verification. The developers say the site is moderated but suggest using parental controls if young people are using their service. Chatruletka is free to join, however fees are charged to reinstate access after being banned, which users report happens frequently.
Apps: Android, Chatruletka is not currently available for Apple iOS in Australia.
