Audio and Chatroom Features
One of the features that makes Paltalk stand out from its competitors is the addition of audio. Users can add audio to their chat session and really make their conversation chatting rather than texting. By clicking on the Add Audio button while in the SuperIM mode, a user can speak to others as though they were on the telephone rather than sitting at their computer.
Another interesting feature of Paltalk is that it includes chat rooms. Paltalk users also have the ability to visit any one of the nearly 4,000 rooms, categorized by topics such as current events, social issues, sports, religion, family and flirting. Users can browse the available rooms by selecting the topic that is of interest to them and then clicking the room to enter.

With Paltalk Messenger, users also have the ability to create, own, operate, and administrate their own chat room on the subject of their choice. The user responsible for creating the room has administrative rights, which means they can open, close, and bounce users out of the room for periods of time, ban users indefinetly, and control the microphone. To minimize the work, the user can also delegate administrative rights to another member.
Finally, the Screening Room is an interesting twist on video because it allows users to add video to their chat room or to the Paltalk Video Library. Videos uploaded to Paltalk can be controlled during viewing by the user using a series of controls available on the video.
