How to entertain yourself online. The online market leaders: Tidal, Twitter, Omegle

Online services have opened up many opportunities for us to have a great time. On the web you can watch movies and your favorite TV shows, listen to music of any genre, chat with friends and meet new people, write blogs, find like-minded people, express yourself and just have a good time. That’s all great!

Today we want to look at some really interesting online platforms in three categories: music services, microblogging, and anonymous video chats. Without doubt, you’ll find something for yourself here.

Music services

Along with the world famous Spotify, there are several other sites where you can conveniently listen to tracks by your favorite artists. Among them are:

Tidal

A music service with a library of over 70 million tracks. Like many of its rivals, Tidal has personalized selections based on your preferences. But it also has some unique features. For example:

  • Music playlists handpicked by a team of Tidal experts
  • Video and live broadcasts right inside the service
  • Offline mode for listening to music when you’re not connected

Tidal works on smartphones, tablets, computers, smart speakers, and more. A truly one-stop service!

Apple Music

One of the best music services for Apple technology owners. Apple Music has over 75 million tracks, Dolby Atmos sound technology is supported, and offline playback is available.

Among the interesting features:

  • Lyrics directly in the application
  • Integration with Siri voice assistant
  • Viewing of music videos
  • AirPlay and Apple TV support

On Windows, you can use Apple Music through iTunes, but it’s not very convenient. For Android there’s a dedicated app from Apple.

Amazon Music Unlimited

Like Tidal, Amazon Music Unlimited has around 70 million tracks available. One of the main features of the site is a variety of tariff plans for different categories of listeners, depending on your requirements: Amazon Music Unlimited, Amazon Music HD, Amazon Music Prime.

Platform advantages:

  • New and rapidly developing service
  • Many tariff offers
  • Section for buying music

Amazon Music Unlimited has firmly established itself as a leader among music services, and many experts believe it may well become second after Spotify.

Among other similar services there are Qobuz, YouTube Music, Deezer, SoundCloud, and Jamendo Music. But bear in mind that they do not all work in every country.

Microblogging services

Microblogging has become a real boon for Internet users. Long gone are the days when huge blog entries and impressive social media posts could captivate a wide range of readers. The modern Internet user values their time. Therefore, they express thoughts as briefly and succinctly as possible, and absorb information in the same way — on the fly. Microblogging has become an important source of information for modern people.

Twitter

This is essentially the progenitor of microblogging. Initially, you could post only 140 characters, and only in 2017 the size of posts was increased to 280 characters. Twitter has over 1.3 billion registered users and about 340 million active users.

On Twitter, you can post text posts and visual content, use hashtags, retweet and comment on other people’s tweets. It is a great source of news from all over the world to keep your finger on the pulse.

Tumblr

Microblogging with a focus on visual content and with an audience of around 400 million. All content posted by users is divided into several categories: text, photo, quote, link, chat, audio and video. You can browse the categories you are interested in, subscribe to authors, like posts and reblog entries. In general, Tumblr could be called an extended version of Twitter.

Pinterest

Pinterest is not a classic microblogging service, but rather a photo hosting application. It allows you to upload images, create themed collections, share them with other users, and much more. Pinterest is an endless source of inspiration for all kinds of creativity: photography, painting, handicrafts and more. And, of course, this is a huge platform for self-expression and exploring your own creative potential.

Among other popular (and not so popular) microblogging platforms are Diaspora, Minds, Mastodon, Gab and others. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, but their audience is noticeably lower than that of the market leaders.

Video chat applications

For those who want to quickly and conveniently find new acquaintances, anonymous video chat services are a real find. The first of these was Omegle back in 2009. It randomly connects users to each other, allowing them to chat on almost any topic.

Omegle is a popular and generally easy to use platform, but not without its disadvantages. So you shouldn’t limit yourself to just this chat roulette. Be sure to consider more up to date alternatives.

Shagle

A convenient alternative to Omegle with a gender filter that works in more than 70 countries around the world. Shagle is an anonymous and secure chat service that cares about the privacy of its users. It has decent moderation, and a nice bonus is virtual gifts that you can give to other users.

Omegle TV

Definitely the best anonymous video chat app for men. The Omegle video chat alternative only connects them with only girls thanks to a unique gender filter. Each girl must confirm her identity when registering — this way there are no fakes and bots on OmegleTV.

OmeTV

A minimalist but highly functional anonymous video chat. Here you can specify your gender and country so that the system selects the most suitable chat partners. And if you want to chat with people who don’t speak your language, it has an automatic message translation function. It’s very convenient, and the translator works quite well.

Emeraldchat

A relatively new anonymous video chat site, the main feature of which is the karma rating. This is one of the most important factors affecting how quickly and to which users the system will connect you. The higher the karma, the higher your priority. And vice versa. Among other things, in Emeraldchat, you can search for chat partners by interest, join a group chat, exchange photos and media content.

Chathub

Free, minimalist and easy to use anonymous video chat app with gender filter and language selection. There are no other settings here. There are no mobile apps either, but nevertheless, Chathub is a convenient and popular platform.

Camsurf

Camsurf is reminiscent of Ome TV in many ways. In video chat, you can specify your gender and language of communication, use safe search, hide your location, enter a welcome message, and much more. But a significant portion of these additional features are only available with a paid subscription.

In summary

As you can see, every modern person has a lot of opportunities to spend challenging and exciting leisure time on the web. The main thing is to choose what you enjoy best. Listen to your favorite artists, take up microblogging and find interesting people around the world. Now it’s easier than ever!

We hope our choices helped you find something for yourself. But these are only a few of the excellent services worthy of your attention.
