The site was initially heavily criticized for offensive and pornographic content, and parents were warned not to let their children visit the site. Users were anonymous.
However, to counter criticism, Chatroulette banned pornographic activity and behavior and nudity doesn’t seem to have made much of a difference. Users of the site must be at least 19 years old. Chatroulette encourages users to report any inappropriate activity, but that doesn’t stop much of the male audience (or women on the platform) from showing graphic and inappropriate snapshots of their anatomy to anyone who slows down long enough to see them.
Chatroulette Customizable Chat Window
For users of the original version of Chatroulette, one of the most obvious and immediate differences is the layout of the Chatroulette site.
In addition to moving video windows to the top of the page, Chatroulette users can now also resize chat windows to suit their individual needs. Chatroulette windows are completely free so users can simply click and resize.
The default Chatroulette chat window is now nested in the top left corner of the page.

New Chatroulette Settings
Chatroulette users will notice the addition of a settings panel that allows users to toggle webcam and microphone settings and audio volume input and output.
These Chatroulette settings provide flexibility in how users see and hear – or don’t hear.
While Chatroulette is a fun way to connect with people around the world, it is banned in some countries. If you are in one of these countries, you can get around the ban by using a virtual private network. A VPN provides a secure connection that keeps your information safe.
