After two sleepless weekends, I am more than happy to launch my first personal side project after shutting down Mage Marketmy YC W19 startup. Things have been really tough lately and with the ongoing forced quarantine I aninymous help myself but build something I needed: a place to find new people and talk about like-minded topics. While Zoom, FaceTime and Houseparty are great apps to meetup with free chat friendshipI have not found anything vhat can help meeting people you don't know yet and just casually hangout.
Since the inception of ChatRoulette I found it very entertaining to just casually hop on a call with a stranger and talk about random stuff. With EmojiTalkie I want to offer a similar experience, but remove potential attack vectors that video conversations with strangers might have. While an audio chat can certainly not replace the in-person experience, I am hoping to provide a platform to at least chat about the topics you care about.
All of this could not have been build in two weekends without the amazing folks at Daily.
Thank you for everyone who gives this little app a try! I'd love to hear your feedback and bug reports!
