Tinychat is a live video chat room website and its popularity is anything but tiny. One of the great things about Tinychat is how simple and easy it is to get your own webcam chat room up and running, it literally only takes seconds. If you simply go to their site at www.tinychat.com and click on the instant chat room link, you can sign in as a guest and get your room going just like that – it’s awesome! You don’t have to register or anything, and you get your very own room which also has it’s very own link you can send to anyone you would like. This probably explains why Tinychat became so popular so quickly – people love simplicity.
Although registration isn’t required, you can still register or connect with Facebook and other social media options. This of course allows you to save settings, rooms, etc that otherwise would disappear if you were only a guest. For example, you can save your chat room’s thumbnail picture people will see when browsing the live directory, and you can save the description you provide for your room which may include rules and what not to help keep away those annoying abusive users. Having all these settings / rooms saved also makes it easier for you to build up a following, if that happens to be your goal.
Tinychat also allows you to upgrade from a simple free registration account to a pro account, but as you probably expected this requires you to pay. Of course, upgrading has its benefits. These benefits include “high-quality fullscreen video” instead of “normal video”, the elimination of those annoying advertisements, the addition of “camera filters & effects” (don’t get any of these with free account), badges that signify you’re pro (for those of you who love to just have a symbol of higher status), and a “priority directory listing”, which of course gives your video chat room more exposure. There may be other benefits I left out, but as far as I can tell those are the major ones.
One last thing, there is no Chatroulette-style functionality here, so just be aware if you’re looking for that specifically then this might not be the place for you, although personally I think it would still make a great addition to your chatting habits! So yea, if you haven’t already, make sure you give Tinychat a try.
