Masque – Anonymous Chat & Call
by: Nimbuzz Netherlands BV • 936
If you have been thinking of venturing into the online dating pool but are hesitant to dive straight in, Masque by Indian-based Nimbuzz is a great way to dip your toe in the water. This neat and minimalist app matches you with a random stranger based on your proximity, and lets you chat anonymously.
Quick to set up, easy to use and with some simple little features which will help you work out if you've been well matched, or need to move onto the next offering quickly. Escaping nuisance users is just one tap away.
Masque is super quick to set up. To get going, you just need to create a screen name, add your mobile number and allow it to use your location, and you're good to go. The app then automatically matches you with users closest to you and allows you to chat anonymously. You can send stickers, emoji and share photos, videos and audio messages that self-destruct after they’ve been opened.
If you get bored or things get creepy, just one tap ends the convo, and you’ll never hear from that person again. You can also report abuse for things like annoying message or indecent media sent.
The app may not necessarily lead you to love, especially if as in my case, your matches are several thousands of miles away. That said, it's a good way of getting into the rhythm of chatting with new people from a safe place.
Masque lacks calling features, and if you accidentally exit a conversation or block a contact, there's no way of getting back in contact - though you can view your old chats for posterity.
