Tango is a simple way to communicate with anyone over the internet anonymously and quickly. No registration is required to get started. The chat also features speech recognition in Chrome.
Please note that you will need to either be invited to a chat room or start one and invite your friends to have people join you :). Feel free to tweet your room's link to start a Tango!
We understand that this may not seem innovated. We tried hard to use cutting edge HTML5 audio to create a multiple user voice chat room that used real time streaming. Unfortunately, we never got it working to our liking and scrapped that portion of the application leaving us to salvage what we could that was left. When the HTML5 audio matures we plan to add it back in.
We have uploaded our pitch video in HD. Watch in 720p here: http://youtu.be/f6TFuRkBQwg?hd=1
The text chatting should work on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. This also includes mobile Safari.
1) Click 'Get Started' on http://tango.cc.
2) After choosing a user name, share the channel URL with your friends. The top of the page has options for sending via email and social media. The easiest way is to paste the URL to them. Once they join the room their user name will appear in the users list.
3) Start sending messages. Enter text in the message box and press 'Send' or press Enter.
4) If using a relatively recent version of Chrome try out the speech recognition. a) Press the microphone icon on the right edge of the message box. b) Talk into your microphone. When it is done processing the text will appear in the message box. c) If the text is desired, press the 'Send' button or hit the Enter key.
