Instant video chat at random with other users the world over
In the olden days we had pen pals. Remember pen pals? An organization would connect you at random with another person somewhere across the globe, and with the power of mutual mailing addresses you were able to connect across miles and cultures. Zoom forward to the present, and snail mail doesn't cut the mustard. We want intimate connection and we want it fast. The anonymity of text won't do - go face to face with perfect strangers from all over the world in Azar's Random Video Chat app. Oh, our modern world.
Go through the briefest of sign ups with your Facebook account or an email. Let the app know your age and gender - your location is automatically detected through your device - and be directly transported to the chat interface, where a total stranger's face will appear on your screen. You'll be notified of the other user's location plus how to say hi in their (probable) native language; finding out further information is wholly up to you.
Bored of your randomly chosen buddy? Swipe the screen to the right for immediate access to another potential insta-friend.
The potential data is massive, so make sure you're either on a Wifi connection or an unlimited data plan when chatting.
The app comes with very few bells and whistles, which is actually a great way to preserve the feeling of truly randomized connection. There is a button to take an instant snapshot of your chat, allowing an attempt to grasp beyond the façade of eternal ephemerality.
A slight annoyance: looks like you can purchase upgrades which make it more likely you'll see a user of the opposite sex. At the time of this review, the video chats were all more than innocent, consisting largely of folks just saying their international hellos. A feature like this one makes it more than likely the app will go the same direction as Chatroulette - that is, as a heteronormative digital hookup tool.
For the moment, however, Azar's Random Video Chat app is heaps of fleeting fun, a fascinating experiment in instant intimacy. Roll the dice and see who pops up; you just never know when you might meet destiny's hand (or a bunch of weirdos in their basements).
Azar allows its user to video chat for free. Just by swiping the screen, Azar allows you to find and meet new people that live in different cities, one by one. Azar promises faster, borderless video communication. Become a citizen of the world with the Azar application!
