WhosHere, the first location-based mobile social discovery app, today began offering video chat. Now users can anonymously text, call, and instant video chat with anyone around the world for free.
First released in April 2009, the WhosHere app brings together people based on personality and chemistry, allowing them to communicate and get to know one another before deciding to meet in person. With video chat, these conversations are now more personal. Using WhosHere’s video chat capability, users can quickly and safely verify that they are speaking to the person they expected to, and not to someone hiding behind a fake or doctored photo.
According to Bryant Harris, co-founder and CEO of WhosHere:
Building relationships is a process and WhosHere has solved the biggest problem in meeting people online by creating the only app in the market that allows people to build virtual relationships with the same comfort level that they have when doing so in the real world.
For those concerned about privacy, WhosHere never shares a user’s personal information unless they choose to provide it. In addition, the exact location of a user is never shown. Finally, unlike some websites and apps that let anyone find and contact you, with WhosHere you only get contacted by mutual matches.
WhosHere Version 2.3 includes:
- Adds WhosHere Video Chats over WiFi & 3G
- WhosHere Voice now works over 3G as well as WiFi
WhosHere is available now in the App Store.
