Omegle is a online chat website that randomly pairs you up with strangers depending on your interests. It is completely free and you can stay anonymous without registering. It’s possible to choose between its two options: video chat and texting. In both ways, you’ll be randomly matched with a stranger.
If you accidentally lost contact with your Omegle partner and would like to get in contact with them again, this article is for you! We are going to be talking about the chances of finding the same person and things you can do to get in contact with your lost Omegle partner.
How does Omegle’s matching works?
Omegle’s algorithm is based on variety. It matches you with strangers as randomly as possible. After you put your interests, it pairs you up with a stranger depending on your interest tags. If your interests are very common ones, there is only a one out of 50,000th (approximately) chance of seeing the same person again on Omegle. Even this chance can vary due to how much time you spend using this website.
