a place for friends
(PRWEB) August 28, 2012
UkChat, the new social network for UK citizens has upgraded and relaunched its free chat rooms that now includes video chat. UkChat.com is known for its ease of use and accessablity and things just became even easier for new friends to find eachother.
The new chat rooms are fully loaded with new and exciting features and are capable of handling video communication alongside text based communication in an all in one environment. Known as "many to many formatted chat" this keeps all chatters in one place and means that a member does not need to have a webcam in order to chat online to online friends that do have web cams. It also means that one webcam can be viewed by more than one viewer and that one viewer can view more than one webcam at a time. The webcams being viewed are presented side by side at the top of the chat room, each of which may be enlarged for better viewing. This is great news for people who are used to using other chat rooms that split cam chatters from text chatters into different rooms. At UkChat.com anybody can talk to anybody regardless of whether or not they own a webcam.
The new chat rooms have full privacy controls built in. Chatters can see who is viewing their webcam and have the option to prohibit selected users from viewing them, they have another option to entirely block any form of communication with selected individuals. From within the chat environment its is possible to invite other chatters to chat privately, to send and receive files and youtube links that play embedded onto the chatroom, view a member's profile and add a chatter as a friend.
Chatters also have other basic options that they can configure to suit them. Sound notifications can be turned on or off for particular types of message for instance public message alerts or private message alerts. Avatars can be customised as well as the background of the chatroom, font size, style and skin colour. There are two different styles that the chat room will display conversations now too, traditional, and bubble (iPhone style) which makes using UkChat even easier if you are used to using an iOS device.
UkChat.com is where to find new friends. It is a free online social network that allows users to communicate using text chat, voice chat and video chat in public and private chat rooms. UkChat utilises a fully functional top class social network for long term friendship and communal chat areas for friend finding and general chat.
