MelanChat is a random chat. That means the app suggests you new people to talk to. You may choose to fill in your profile and voila! Friends.
You may skip suggestions, but it is not possible to filter them in any way. MelanChat tries its best to give you quality people to talk to, but the fun is in discovering.
No. MelanChat is for friendly conversations only, there is already plenty of other places for try getting laid.
Yes! The app is totally free and there is no ads. MelanChat runs on donations from people who like it enough (or might just be after the rewards, who can tell).
Think of it as a score of how much other users trust you. You gain Karma points by starting good conversations.
As a moderation tool, some features (like sending pictures) might be locked until you have enough Karma.
The app automatically fills in some fields (like name, headline or bio) for a new profile. Sometimes it is funny, sometimes just totally incoherent. You may leave as it is (or also generate some new gibberish!) or edit it to your liking.
Your profile can only be viewed by other users inside of the app. As for your personal data, you decide how much (or little) you want to share.
No, MelanChat is for one on one, private conversations.
These are gimmicks/games/events for novel chatting. For example: chat in character as a historical figure, find someone to debate your latest hot take, find patient zero from a network of chats, etc.
Chat experiments are optional to join and users are randomly invited for them.
Until someone finds a backronym, it is short for Melancia (watermelon in Portuguese). Not surprisingly, the app is full of them.
Listen to Metá Metá.
