PalTalk, found online at PalTalk.com, is a new mobile application that says they want to give people a place where they can have free chats and texts with their current friends and the new friends they will make.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, people using PalTalk will be able to browse more than 5,000 active group chat rooms that are centered around topics like current events, music, sports, and much more.
PalTalk users will be able to have unlimited chats, texts, and video conversations with anyone who is also using the app. These conversations can be had in public formats or you can choose to have private conversations outside of the public chat areas.
They also offer users extra features like the ability to add stickers, gifts, and emojis, as well as to post YouTube and SoundCloud clips in the chatrooms for extra enjoyment.
Their website says that PalTalk is currently offering a mobile application for devices including iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Kindle. Their website is clear that it doesn’t matter what device you are using, you will be able to speak to any other PalTalk user that is online at the same time as you.
At this time, it appears that this mobile application is free of charge to download and to use for their basic features. They may offer the opportunity for in-app purchases for additional, upgraded features and options, but those are completely optional and up to each individual customer.
Because this mobile application provides their customers with their services free of charge, they do not provide their customers with a Refund Policy. If you have chosen to make an in-app purchase, you will need to deal with either iTunes or Google Play in order to discuss the option for a refund.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through the Contact Us link available on their website.
The main criticism and concern of this mobile appears to be the same criticism and concern which regards all websites and internet services that offer the ability to meet up with strangers around the world and have conservations about common interests: anonymous jerks.
Unfortunately there are always going to be people on the internet who take advantage of their anonymity by attacking other people, harassing people, bothering people, and being otherwise unpleasant and inappropriate.
While many people like this service for the positives that it offers, there are many people who have said that it simply isn't worth it because you spend so much time dealing with negative, offensive people who are just there to ruin your time.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different websites and mobile applications that are dedicated to helping people meet other people so that they can discuss and share the personal interests that they have in common, so customers looking for alternatives to PalTalk will have many other options.
