However, in 2010, Omegle introduced a video mode to complement the text chat mode, which pairs together strangers who are using webcams and microphones. In 2011, the beta version of a new feature, "Spy Mode", was introduced.
In Spy (Question) Mode, users have two options; to be the "spy" and ask a question of two strangers, or to discuss a question with another stranger.
This has, however, been met with complaints that bots remain and legitimate use is excessively interrupted.
In 2013, an unmonitored version of the video chat mode was opened, leaving the original content moderator-regulated video section open to anyone aged thirteen and up as long as the content of his or her video stream is clean.
Initially, questionable adult content in the video section of Omegle was filtered using image recognition algorithms only.
The newer unmonitored video section allows consenting adults over the age of eighteen the freedom to view, and share with one another, uncensored explicit video streams.
In 2014, Omegle began experimenting with a "Dorm Chat" mode, which requires users to provide an email address ending in ".edu" to verify that they are associated with a college or university.
Adding interests lets users be paired with a stranger who has something in common with the user.
