This has, however, been met with complaints that bots remain and legitimate use is excessively interrupted.
Prior to early 2013, the site did not censor contributions through a profanity filter, and users may have encountered nudity or sexual content on camera.

However, in 2010, Omegle introduced a video mode to complement the text chat mode, which pairs together strangers who are using webcams and microphones. In 2011, the beta version of a new feature, "Spy Mode", was introduced.
In Spy (Question) Mode, users have two options; to be the "spy" and ask a question of two strangers, or to discuss a question with another stranger.
Adding interests lets users be paired with a stranger who has something in common with the user.
A user can input as many interests as he or she would like, and if no available match is found, the user is paired with a completely random stranger instead.
As the spy, the user inputs any question for the two strangers to answer or discuss and is able to view the discussion as a third party, albeit without being able to contribute further to the conversation.
