Omegle is Dead
Omegle has officially shutdown yesterday for financial and personal reasons from the creator.
Omegle has officially shutdown yesterday for financial and personal reasons from the creator. I do not know of any other site like it, and have searched for a long time. Every other app I have used doesn't have the same search-by-interest feature or has some shitty token/coin based payment system.
With Omegle gone, I don't see an easy website to easily fill it's gap. I believe the open source community is capable of creating something equivalent or greater. This is a time sensitive matter and if the open source community does not jump on this opportunity, a company will.
Element Calls seems to be a potential platform that has a cleaner interface than Omegle, and supports screen sharing. It is open source under the Apache 2.0 license, which is a very permissive license. Element also uses modern technology such as Node.js and Typescript. Right now you can go to their web app, create a call, and invite others via link with no sign-on, so it is easy to experiment with. The features that must be added include joining a random call with a stranger and add a chat box. Otherwise it is all already built by open source developers and even appears to be encrypted, which is far better than Omegle being very insecure.
