Work began on the new chat room software nearly 3 years ago. We wanted to do it the long and hard way to make sure we got it right. No corners were cut, no shortcuts taken, sChat2 has been developed 100% in house from the ground up. No third party software has been relied on, it's completely custom built by us.
Whilst navigating through these tough times, dealing with infectious disease spreading around the world and in some cases being ordered to stay indoors, it's no surprise people are turning to the internet for entertainment. We're seeing a lot more users in the chat rooms than usual and thought it would be a great time for a refresher on how to conduct yourself in an online chat room...
It's almost like something out of a movie what we're going through right now, if someone were to tell you 2 months ago that all restaurants, movie theaters, gyms and just about everything else would be closed, you would of slapped them silly. Yet here we are...
If you're new to online chat rooms, we have some tips that might help you get more out of your Internet experience.
We've decided to reduce some of the less-populated regional chats down to fewer rooms. England's regions are combined into one, plus London. Individual countries -- Scotland, Wales, Ireland -- keep their individual rooms. We've done this to serve population-balancing, convenience, and ease-of-moderating, all while helping you to chat with more people near you.
Another important feather in the cap of UKChat's new and improved free online chat service, not offered by a lot of other HTML based chat services, is that it has free cam chat capabilities, opening the doors to a much better chat experience than what anyone from the old chat rooms is used to. Technology has come a long way, and we're keeping up with it, and even paving the way for our competitors in some respects.
After many years we're back and better than ever. Under new ownership and merging with some other recently bought out chat room networks, UK Chat has consolidated what's left of the major online chat services serving the UK and created the number one community for live chatting online with others in and around your local area.
In our busy free chat rooms, there's always something going on, whether on or off peak hours. It can be hard to stand out and get the attention that you want from all of our available chatters during evenings and weekends, when the chat is most active, not just because you're harder to find in the user list, but because the users you want to talk to might be busy. Here's how to stand out and get noticed.
We provide some of the highest quality, most popular and easy to use chat rooms on the web today, but did you know that you can create your own chat room here, too? If you want to own and manage your own chat room on our server, it's quick and easy to set it up, and it will show up in the public rooms list so that other users on our chat service can join and participate.
We've shaken up the website to focus more on our free online chat, among other things, but the most important new development here at UK Chat is our new chat software. The new chat is finally 100% mobile compatible. You can chat from your iPhone or Android mobile phones, as well as from many Apple iOS and Android mobile devices like tablets, and many unexpected devices, like web browser equipped video game consoles.
