#1 Chat Avenue is the current leader in free online chat rooms. It is an online chat community that has very loyal chatters and welcomes all new chatters from all over the world. Started in the fall of 1999 as a simple free hosted chat site targeted for general audiences, the site was registered in 2000, and has quickly grown into one of the largest chat communities on the Internet today. We have some of the most loyal users of any chat community on the Net today! Most of our users are from the USA, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. However, you are bound to bump into someone from almost every country on Earth. There are multiple categories to choose from. Nobody is left out.
As we have come to known, the rise of social networking sites are upon us. The likes of Facebook, Snapchat and Myspace have grown. What makes our chat site particularly unique is it offers instant connection with other users from around the world. There is no need to send a message and wait days for a reply. Connect instantly and talk in real time! Also available are mobile, audio and video style chat rooms including a chat roulette style room for one on one webcam with strangers. We are pretty confident you will not find a more user-friendly environment out there.
There are no registration requirements and the use of our site is 100% free. The community is staffed with well over 100 volunteer moderators who help enforce the chat room rules and make sure everyone feels safe using our chatrooms.
This site uses a combination of various software. Our desktop rooms have been upgraded to use the latest 123flashchat software (v11.0) based on Flash and HTML technology. We have phased out the old Digichat Java chat rooms which was once the #1 chat technology. However, that is the past and we are the future. In 2017, it was announced that Flash will no longer be supported by 2020. IOS devices have already forbidden the use of Flash. Therefore, we have also added an alternate software option for our desktop, mobile and tablet rooms based on Node.js. Simply put, we will always use the best chat software packages available on the market today. In the near future, we will be adding a totally new chat software that will be supported by ALL devices. In order to participate in the regular desktop chat rooms, you must have a Flash enabled browser. If you experience incompatibility issues we have alternate rooms available for use. Mobile users can simply connect from their tablets or smartphones directly. Webcams and microphones are optional for the audio and video chat rooms. Please visit the Chat Room Technical FAQ's section of this site if you are experiencing any problems connecting. For mobile and tablet users, simply choose from our selection of chat rooms and click the button to connect instantly.
