Our Review

Since its launch in 2015, Chatspin has already broken records by having more than one billion connections made through the platform. 

Alexa, a product of Amazon that gathers data from the Internet, claims that it is the fastest growing random video chat app in the world. It has been reported that more than one million users are active in the app every month.

Chatspin is available in 12 languages, which makes it friendly to users who speak a different language. The features it provides are more than just random chats as well. It promotes genuine connections and safety through its filters feature and precautions.

Chatspin seems to be different than other chat apps available, as it offers both random video chats and text chats function. Think Omegle and Chatroulette combined, with extra features.

  • Majority of members are within the age range of 18 to 25
  • You cannot view other members of the website
  • A lot of traffic comes from Hong Kong
  • There are many active users from all over the world
  • You can have decent conversations with the members

Chatspin has great traffic from users all over the world. In Hong Kong, it has 1,000 montly sign ups. 

The majority of the active users are students or young professionals within the age range of 18 to 25. Seemingly, the app appeals to them because they are at the age of exploration and want to meet new people all the time. 

Moreover, they are avid users of the Internet. Most of them access the site to kill time, meet new friends, or simply have conversations with strangers.

Before you start chatting on Chatspin, you are required to indicate your gender—whether you are a male, a female, or a couple. Afterward, the default gender filter of random strangers that will be matched with you is ‘Everyone’. If you choose to filter your matches to a specific gender, you have to sign up for the premium plan.

You can have decent conversations with most people that use the app. However, some users use the app to send links on Kik. These users fish you out from the site to get you to view their profiles from other dating apps or chat sites.

Signing Up

Chatspin Sign Up
  • Account registration takes 1-2 minutes
  • You only need to provide a valid email address
  • You can sign up using your Google or Facebook account
  • Email verification is required
  • You are allowed to sign up as a couple

Signing up for an account on Chatspin is a quick and easy process. You just need to provide a valid email address and then create a password. 

After reading and confirming that you agree with their Terms of Use agreement, Chatspin instantly sends you an email verification link. Once you click on that link from the email you provided, you can now use Chatspin for free!

If you don’t like to provide an email address, you can still use the dating site and mobile app. The only downside is, you won’t be able to upgrade your account to premium. 

Being a premium member lets you have access to useful features that can give you a more pleasurable experience, particularly in using the video chat app. 

Also, Chatspin continues to pop up the registration window when you decide to use the site or mobile app without registering.

Making Contact

Chatspin Chat Function
  • You can send a 'like' to a member if you have a nice conversation
  • You can only go back to a chat window if you have a premium account
  • There are arrows on the site and app that lets you proceed to the next chatter

There are two ways to contact other Chatspin users: video chatting and text chatting.

  • Video Chat 

You have to enable your device’s microphone and video access to successfully use the video chat feature. If you choose this contacting mean, you can use the A/I filters available. 

A/I filters are like digital facemasks you can use when you face your camera. The camera intelligently detects your face features, and the system will place the mask on the right parts of your face.

  • Text Chat

If you are uncomfortable showing your face to a stranger, Chatspin allows you to have text chats instead. This matches you with another member who also disabled the video feature on his or her end.

For both contacting features, If ever you want to end a chat, you can simply click the ‘End Chat’ button found on the screen. Alternatively, you can click the right arrow that automatically connects you to another person.

Sending likes is also possible on the website and the app by clicking the heart button beside the user’s details. You can see how many likes he or she already has from the number indicated inside the heart icon.

Since anyone can use the site, some users take advantage of other members by scamming them. Be wary of users who ask for your personal information, especially credit card details. Never give them out!

Profile Quality

      Since Chatspin is a random chat dating site and dating app, there are no profiles that you can visit on the site. When you get matched with another user, you are only able to see their location, age, and gender.

      App

      Chatspin Mobile App
      • Provides a seamless mobile experience
      • Perfect for users on-the-go
      • There are additional features you can use
      • Has a better user design compared to the desktop version
      • You can download it for free on the Google PlayStore and the Apple App Store

      What’s good about Chatspin is that it has a mobile app that you can download for free from any popular app store. This allows you to kill time when you are bored or waiting, especially if you are on-the-go.

      Aside from the filter features that Chatspin offers on its desktop version, the mobile app has additional features you can use:

      • Interest Filters

      You can sort your random connections by clicking some of the interest filters available. You can access this on your chat settings, represented by the gear icon on the bottom right side of the page. 

      • Intro Message

      Another feature that the mobile app offers is the “intro message,” which you can compose on the chat setting as well. Each time you connect to a new user, this message will be automatically sent to that person.

      The mobile app is designed to give a pleasant user experience for the member. 

      You can access the different contacting features on the tabs at the bottom, while filters can be set on top of every page. Moreover, you can end the chat by simply exiting the application.

      Real Life Review

      “I was bored one day and decided to search for random chat apps on the internet. I read some reviews about Chatspin and decided to give it a try. Signing up was easy, so I got to access the app very quickly. At first, I was uncomfortable showing my face to a stranger, but the filters helped me overcome my worries. I would say that Chatspin is a good app that you can kill time with. I’ve had a lot of decent conversations (and some bad ones, they all got reported), and even got to connect with some of them on social media!” - Richter, 24, Alabama

      Design and Usability

      Design-wise, Chatspin is tailored for the young and modern users: the font, graphics, colours (yellow and black), and overall web and app design make it appealing to the youth.

      In terms of usability, using the mobile app is probably better than the desktop version. 

      The desktop has a huge window where the start and end chat click buttons, back and next arrows, and the filters are located. It takes up almost 75% of the screen.

      The rest of the 25% is divided into two: the upper half where your video is located should you decide to share it and the lower half where the text chat window is found.

      When you use the mobile app, whether you choose video or text chat, it will take up the whole screen. Switching from video to text is easy as the tabs can be found at the bottom of the page.

      Payment Options
      • Credit Card

      Chatspin has a premium membership called Chatspin Plus. They offer it in 1-week, 1-month, and 6-month package durations. 

      If you are planning to use the dating app for a long time, the 6-month package would give you over 50% of savings. You can pay in any currency you want, just click on the right currency from the dropdown menu before you check out.

      You can use all the basic features of the site for free, so getting a premium membership is probably unnecessary. However, availing the premium membership gives you more features such as the gender filter and location filter. 

      If you’re a free member, Chatspin only allows you to chat with users from the United States, as well as your country of residence. But if you get a premium, the site shall allow you to connect with users from other countries.

      Chatspin Plus also gets rid of the ads that can disrupt your experience. If you're after something on the chat dating app, getting a premium membership will do you better.
