Search for rooms
Search for rooms by key words or interests. Anything from A to Z can be found here!
Paltalk uses a ratings system. In brief, G rooms cant have any foul language or nudity, R rated rooms can't have any nudity but do allow foul language, and in an A rated room almost anything goes. You must be over the age of 18 to join any A rated rooms. The family filter allows or disallows the listing of A rated rooms.
In a chat room
If you are in a chat room, the header shows information about the room. You can see how many members are publishing video, as well as how many members are present in the room. You can 'follow' the room by clicking on the 'follow' button. If you are already following the room, the icon will say 'un-follow'. Click on the un-follow button if you want to stop following the room for any reason.
