A great feature of Paltalk Scene is the ability to setup a password protected room for activities like talking to your loved ones when your overseas or interstate, without being interrupted by strangers.

Ptalk Chat Rooms WindowThe audio and video quality are top notch, the ability to chat simultaneously with a large number of users in a room as well as select whatever video you wish to see is a great experience. Paltalk Scene also provides us with a bunch of fun animations which the user can overlay on their videos.

The Paltalk Scene User Interface is extremely easy to use, if you are subscribed to the Paltalk Scene extreme service you can view as many windows as your monitor can handle, removing them from the Paltalk Scene dock window allows for resizing to whatever size window(s) you prefer.

Private messaging is available in the form of a “whisper” or private message and you can select to broadcast video only to the person you are instant messaging. Paltalk Scene also contains interoperability with Instant messengers such as yahoo, aim and ICQ, so you never need to leave the Paltalk realm.

From time to time Paltalk Scene has celebrities conducting chat forums, for example Novelist Stephen King and Former Guns and Roses Guitarist “Slash” have conducted sessions where the average Joe can ask them questions directly.

The only drawbacks to Paltalk Scene is that is currently only available to pc users and you don’t have the ability when broadcasting your cam in a chat room to tell if someone your talking to is watching your cam or not and probably more disturbing you cannot tell if someone is watching you who you would rather didn’t. If someone annoys you and you know they are watching you, you can block them.

Another thing to be wary of is the only guard against entering the well patronised Adult area, is a warning pop up which you just have to agree to to enter, so underage folk should have a parent supervising what areas they are in. Paltalk Scene has implemented a rating system for each room which easily allows you to recognise which rooms are adult and which rooms are family friendly, They even have heavily moderated teenage and underage rooms to provide a safe place for younger folk to hang out. As for the Adult area if you are up for flirting or more then Paltalk Scene certainly caters for the more mature side of video chatting if thats your bent.
