Paltalk — Welcome to the Club, Pal Review
Paltalk is a mixture of a free mobile messenger, social network and even a dating service. Сhat with your friends, strangers and also find new buddies, who share the same interests with you. And of course, there is always some room for romance. Download Paltalk to make some fresh acquaintances.
Paltalk claims to be an "ultimate" instant messenger. It integrates:
- Unlimited video & audio calls.
- Text messaging.
- Chat rooms.
- Emojis & stickers. In Paltalk, stickers can be used as a silly illustration of your current mood or a gift, with which you can attract another user's attention.
When it comes to interests & topics, chat rooms in this app truly know no bounds. You can find rooms filled with:
- Gamers, discussing why Fallout 76 was a flop.
- Fashion maniacs.
- Wannabe novelists.
- People concerned with politics and issues of survival in post-apocalyptic reality etc.
At the same time, you risk seeing a lot of fake profiles.
Paltalk allows you to be engaged in numerous conversations, since you can open multiple rooms at the same time. However, it's tending to make the app crash and overheat your phone's battery.
For those, who are paranoid about stalking, the app offers a feature of setting your account to Private. That means your photo albums can't be browsed and your PM box won't be bombarded with tons of unanswered messages. Until you choose someone worthy to be your vis-a-vis.
The app has calm white & blue tonality and neat separate tabs: Room, Pal List etc. However, it seems to suffer from glitches a lot. Users struggle with changing their avatars/statuses and navigation becomes slow due to lagging, etc.
The key gimmick of Paltalk is its numerous chat rooms. That means you can always find someone to discuss various topics with. But its audio/video calls tend to crash in the middle of a call, sabotaging conversations. Our Paltalk review has also noticed that entering a Room can be possible only after a few retries.
Cross-platform use 4/5
The app can be played with on iOS and Android mobile gadgets. If you need a more stable convo - Windows and MacOS Paltalk clients are also an option.
Most of its features are free. Paltalk offers a bundle of lovely stickers and gifts, which you can use as a cute gesture towards someone you appreciate a lot. If you're a generous donator and make a lot of gifts, Paltalk will put you on the "Top 50 Valuable Members" pedestal. The cheapest gift costs $0.99.
The Bottom Line
Paltalk has a unique stratagem: blending an instant messenger with a platform for meeting friends, flirting and finding a romance. It is quite promising, especially if you feel bored and want to chat with someone, who's interested in the same stuff as you. But its vexing defects, such as instable video-chatting, subvert a good idea.
