Shagle.com advertises with free registration, over 4 million members, and several interesting features. The landing page is professionally designed and the interface is modern and user-friendly. For this review, we signed up and took a closer look at the provided tools and features. Moreover, we studied the terms and conditions, then searched the internet for user experiences and reviews.
No scams or rip-offs are to be feared here. However, the site is certainly not suitable for singles who are looking for their perfect match or a long-term relationship. On the positive side, Shagle.com is absolutely trustworthy and legitimate. It merely offers a fun-focused video chat experience.
How it works
After the free registration, users get immediate access to most of the site’s features. In comparison to other dating websites, the search functions are extremely limited. Users can only activate a gender filter and choose a location for their search. Then, they can simply click a button to start their first video chat.
As there is no such thing as a members’ pool or any advanced search tools, users have no control whatsoever over who they are going to chat with. Chat partners are assigned to each other randomly by the Shagle.com-system. Obviously, this can be a lot of fun, as it is full of surprises. However, it also makes finding a matching partner rather challenging, time-consuming and, let’s face it, extremely unlikely.
Whilst most of the site’s features are 100% free, there are also some paid premium features. Luckily, the offered premium-subscriptions are relatively inexpensive. Since they renew automatically, these subscriptions must be canceled in time to stop recurring payments. However, the cancelation process is easy and we did not find any reports about a subscription rip-off, or similar scams.
Not for everyone
In summary, Shagle.com is a fun-focused random video chat platform for singles who are looking for casual online encounters with strangers. Sadly, those who are searching for a matching partner, a real date, or a long-term relationship should definitely try their luck elsewhere.
