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… but now it’s much better).
The app and this website (Speakrandom in general) are actively maintained and developed by Helder Esteves and sometimes other people (such as freelancers or volunteers).
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 people are showing themselves off there.
If that’s your cup of tea, then, by all means, go for it. However, our intention was to build the best possible app to make chatting like this online an awesome experience. That’s when we thought that the best way would be to just use an audio+text chat.
A lot of our time is invested in this idea and will continue to be that way for a long time.
With that said, our #1 goal is to make it extremely easy to have awesome conversations while being 100% yourself.
By offering a place to chat online without a camera, not only is it much safer in terms of content that you see, you are much more likely to enjoy talking to strangers because you can focus in your conversation without worrying too much about how you look.
Chatting without being judged by your appearance, now isn’t that one heck of a mission to have?
Speakrandom is only possible because of you. Send us what you think about the app or anything in general. We will listen to everything users send us, especially because we want to make you happy (that’s the whole point).
