    The Chatroulette online chat service had some success, despite its sometimes unexpected nudity and some strange users, but it seems that the Internet has moved on to something else since. But the Korean application Azar wants to put the idea back out there, this time on mobile, taking again the same principle: two strangers are randomly connected, and the discussion starts with the video bonus .


    The application is not entirely new, however, since it was launched almost three years ago in Asia, before being progressively deployed in nearly 200 different countries where a growing number of users tried it. Recently, its publisher Hyperconnect has disclosed some figures: more than 100 million downloads carried out throughout the world, for a total of nearly 13 billion connections between strangers.

    Azar however pushes the concept of Chatroulette a little further, since many more functions on have been added. As with Tinder, when connected to another person, you can simply slide your finger to the edge of the screen to end the discussion and move on to the next one. As for Snapchat, the application offers filters to integrate to its image and which will be added to the current discussion. As for Whatsapp, it is possible to add a contact in a list of friends to continue private conversations with in the future.

    It is this last point that could pose a problem to the popularity of Azar. Because if the application brings a lot of new features compared to Chatroulette, it shares at least one common point: the nasty surprise of crossing one or more users completely naked and not very modest. A problem that could cause Hyperconnect to take action, since the minimum application age is 14 , a limit that can in any case be circumvented by younger people by simply lying on their date of birth.
