TinyChat, the world’s fastest-growing video group chat portal has just announced the launch of location-based video group chat feature on its service. Users of the chat service now have the ability to set their current location so that they can video chat with people in their area. This means that with the function enabled, you’ll only be chatting to people within a 10-mile radius of where you are and still protect your anonymity (as long as you keep your curtains drawn and don’t let other people see where you live).
“You can geotag your Facebook updates and Tweets, so why not your real-time video chat experience? TinyChat offers a truly relevant and engaging experiences for its millions of users,” says Dan Blake, Co-founder of TinyChat. “This is all about continuing to make the world a more connected place via the web. Say, if there’s a regular Tinychat room you use to discuss fishing, we think this feature will make it even easier for our those users to meet ‘IRL’ for an actual fishing trip!”
I guess this new feature will also help those shy folks meet other people – at least in the comfort of their own home first, before they do meet up in person. Head over to the TinyChat website to give it a spin.
