Speakrandom was founded in 2018 (back then as Talkmatcher) to help people talk to strangers in the best way possible online (much like the present app… just better).
The app and this website (Speakrandom in general) are actively maintained and developed by Helder Esteves (send me a message some time, I appreciate that). You can say that I am the CEO, Founder, CTO, CFO, CMO, and all that. I care not for such titles (what a great sentence, I make myself proud while writing)
“Chatting online without any prejudice towards appearance”Helder Esteves (yes, that’s me)
Nowadays, you have 2 choices: text-chatting with random people and video-chatting with random people as well.
One of them is just too lonely. Text chatting is nice to say a thing or two, but you still don’t get to know anyone too well.
Video-chatting puts too much emphasis on appearance. Not only that, if you’ve been to Chatroulette or Omegle before, then you know just how many guys are showing themselves off there.
If that’s your cup of tea, then, by all means, go for it. However, my intention was to build the best possible app to make chatting like this online an awesome experience. That’s when I thought that the best way would be to just use an audio+text chat.
A lot of my time is invested in this, and will continue to be that way for a long time. Whether it’s me or someone else developing it.
