15 Free Phone Chat Apps Where You Can Meet & Date People

Mobile Apps

Free phone chat apps arrive in a wide variety of purposes and platforms. Most of them help you send text messages and make voice and video calls without taking too much from the plan provided by your carrier. By doing so, these apps help you save your hard-earned money. 

Facebook Messenger, Viber, Skype, WhatsApp, and WeChat can do essential communication functions very well. But some can even bring your communication – and dating game – to the next level. These are the free phone chat apps that can help you encounter online and date strangers, and, perhaps, establish lasting relationships.

Many free phone chat apps originated from free chat sites like Omegle and Chatroulette. Eventually, these chat sites created their own free phone chat apps to ride on to the immense popularity of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. 

Apart from the enhanced convenience of meeting and dating strangers that they bring, some of these apps have become an avenue for people in searching real-time pornographic content. Some apps offer adult chatroulette and dirty chat roulette for these audiences. 

Today, Google Play and Apple App Store are home to a vast collection of free phone chat apps for Android and iOS devices. Let us take a quick look at some of them that you might want to download and try.
