Chatroulette 2.0 Has Arrived – Guess How Many Genitals You’re Gonna See

webcamAssuming you’re one who enjoys nothing more than to gaze into the loins of a stranger, you’ll be delighted beyond reason to learn that Chatroulette is back, with a shiny new 2.0 and a promise of all the sweaty junk you can be hot and bothered to look upon.

Okay, maybe not that last part. But that’s not going to stop daring exhibitionists around the globe from keeping their webcam at crotch-level – and, after having taken it for a short test drive, it certainly hasn’t.

I guess my big question for Ternovskiy is: what’s 2.0 about this, dude? To be honest, I dig the new interface. I’m a fan of really, really minimal things. But didn’t you say that you were gonna start removing all this junk, all this junk inside this trunk? I could really go for some, like… faces, or something. And shouldn’t any 2.0 worth its salt come with, like… y’know, maybe a new feature or two?

I suppose I’m just looking out for the kid. If you ask me, Chatroulette is what it is. Chatroulette doesn’t grow. It can’t. It is a single idea, and always will be. It doesn’t need a 2.0. It can’t handle a 2.0. To add or subtract anything from the service would disrupt its core experience. The interface improvements are welcome (nice touch on the unlabeled Next button, by the way), but this is a 1.1, and unless you do something about the sausage party, Ternovskiy, your service ain’t gonna be bought and assimilated by NObody.

Except maybe AdultFriendFinder.

Actually, that’s not a bad idea.

  1. Ternovskiy needs to stop fighting it and embrace his user base. Surely there is a revenue model for this type of thing.
