What does ‘chat’ mean? Here are the definitions you need to know
Q: What is chat?
A: Chat is a type of online video chatting that allows users to meet and communicate with others in real-time.
Q: Can I chat in person?
A. Yes, you can.
However, you must be 18 years or older to join.
What do I do in chat?
I open up my video chat to someone else.
I select the person I would like to chat with and I say hello.
I reply to the person who selected me by clicking on their name.
I add them to my list of friends and then they add me.
Q.: How do I change my chat settings?
1: Select the settings menu on your video chat app.
2: Click on “Chat Settings” under “Add” or “Change Chat Settings” in the upper right corner of your video chats menu.
3: From the “Add a Chat” menu, select “Change Settings” and then “Chat” to add a new chat.
Q.– How can I chat with people who are not in my chat?
You can’t chat with anyone unless they are in your chat.
This is called “Chatring.”
You must be on the same video chat, and you can only chat with other people you have joined.
If you want to chat directly with someone, you have to be in your video app.
You cannot use a virtual assistant to chat, or a third party to chat.
You will be asked to confirm that you are a “member” of the chat.
If this is the case, you may be asked for permission to continue to chat or to “join” a chat.
2) If you don’t have a video chat available, you cannot send or receive messages.
A: You can only see messages from your friends in your Chatring view.
To view a message, you need a webcam attached to your phone.
Once you have one, press and hold the camera icon (or “camera”) and the microphone icon (top right of your phone) to make a call.
If the camera is attached to the phone, you will see the message you are sending or receiving on your phone screen.
To delete a message from a Chatring conversation, press the “delete” button at the bottom of the screen.
3) If a friend asks you to “chat” or to join a Chatrent, you’ll need to have their username and password entered.
To do this, you should enter the username and your password into the “Join Chat” option in your settings menu.
When you are done, the chat will automatically join you.
You should then press “OK” to return to your video-chat app.
4) You can chat with a virtual friend who has not joined your Chatrent.
They can see your messages.
If your virtual friend has a username and a password, they can join the chat by entering their username.
You need to confirm your participation and password before you can join.
5) If your chat is not showing up, please contact the developer of your app or ask the developer for a fix.
6) If someone on your Chatroulette or other video chat platform asks you for permission, you MUST be 18 or older.
This applies to any person that is in the Chatroulet or other chat application and not just your friends.
Please note: this policy applies only to Chatroulets and other video-games chat services that are operated by Apple or Google.
