Is The Future Of Chatroulette Chat-Free?

Chatroulette has recently been stepping things up in order to secure their spot in the ranks of popular social websites, adding new features and giving the site a facelift. But is the next step in the revamping of Chatroulette doing away with the chat? Chatroulette’s founder, Andrey Ternowsky, told NewTeeVee that the future of the site might focus entirely on telepresence and do away with text chat completely.

A couple of weeks ago, Chatroulette added a couple of new features to the site – Localroulette and Channelroulette – in order to offer users more options and give the site a boost. With Localroulette and Channelroulette, users have the option to meet other users in their local area or users that share similar interests. However, the launch of these new features, which are now called simply “Local” and “Channels” is only the beginning. NewTeeVee’s Janko Roettgers reported that Ternowsky is working on entirely revamping the Chatroulette experience. He said, “Right now we are carefully testing it and slowly launching some of its future features.”
