In 2015, Omegle began implementing Re Captcha security measures to help reduce the amount of bots on the site.This has, however, been met with complaints that bots remain and legitimate use is excessively interrupted.In 2012, Omegle added a special new feature to the text and video modes, the option to input "interest" tags.Adding interests lets users be paired with a stranger who has something in common with the user.The site now provides a mobile application that lets users chat with strangers from mobile devices. Omegle was initially a text-only chat that paired users at random to communicate as "strangers".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.
The service randomly pairs users in one-on-one chat sessions where they chat anonymously using the names "You" and "Stranger" or "Stranger 1" and "Stranger 2" in the case of Spy mode.

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.
In 2013, an unmonitored version of the video chat mode was opened, leaving the original content moderator-regulated video section open to anyone aged thirteen and up as long as the content of his or her video stream is clean.
