Editors' Review

+

An abundance of features and a large community make Paltalk enjoyable for text, audio, and video chatting. Adult content is hidden by default. Parental controls employ a password to change settings or block groups. Moderators enforce the rules and establish who gets to speak to the whole room. G rooms are all-ages. R rooms allow cussing, but not sexual language, and anything goes in A rooms. You can print and save room sessions. Right-click a person's name to view his or her profile and Webcam picture, invite him or her to a private room, or send a file.

Signing on to your AOL, ICQ, MSN, or Yahoo account automatically imports your buddy list. The abundance of ads on each window, even popping up while you're joining a room, might motivate users to pay for a subscription. Free accounts only can open three still-image Webcams, whereas paid users can open more windows of full-motion video. The installation window offers to install My Search and eFax. Uninstalling Paltalk leaves an icon on the desktop. Still, the thousands of rooms for politics, karaoke, advice, and porn mean that anybody can find a connection on Paltalk.

"Great Chat Program, Bad Administrators"

August 09, 2006  |  By locohacker

 |  Version: Paltalk 8.3

Pros

Well I run a website for great addons for paltalk the link is locohacker.net so I know a lot about this program, its over all a great chat program it has nice videos and with some of the addons from my site it can make it better.

Cons

All I can say are room admins, if you never use it you will see when you do. This people have to much power over wha to do with the room users, and users cant do much but accepted.

"I was amazed at some of the comments on this program"

July 23, 2006  |  By Charlie6799

 |  Version: Paltalk 8.3

Pros

I have had this program since 1999. It has evolved from a "typing only" program to a full chat with video, sound, etc. You can use this program free for as long as u like. Yes, there are ads and pop ups. (unless you subscribe) I have no problem with spyware or trojans with Paltalk. I love it. Once you are there. You will want to subscribe if you are a die hard chatter! Chat rooms are monitored and rated and you can control what you want to hear or see.

Cons

There is always room for improvement, but you get what you pay for. The free program is great, the pop ups are a bit annoying, but not enough to make you leave the program. The only problem I have is during the times they are "down" for improvements.
