When creating version 9.9 we concentrated on 2 main areas - Video, and Accessibility:

·        Video: Paltalk always strives to offer the best video quality on the internet. With 9.9, we've optimized our video streams and made them faster, clearer and better! Plus, we added new layouts for the SuperIM windows to make them more video focused.

·        Accessibility: Here at Paltalk we believe our members should be able to video chat (SuperIM) with anyone, anywhere, instantly! With the new SuperIM URL feature, video chatting with your friends who are not Paltalk members is easy. Simply pass your SuperIM URL to your friends and 2 clicks later (no downloads by the way) they are video chatting with you!

 

 

Paltalk 9.9 includes the following new and exciting features:

 

  • SuperIM URLs - personalized links that allow video chat anywhere on the Web with any friend, regardless of whether they are a Paltalk member. SuperIM URLs are extensions of http://www.superim.me/nickname. For the first 2 weeks after release, paid subscribers will be able to choose to customize their SuperIM URL with something other than their nickname. Custom vanity SuperIM URLs look like this: http://customname.superim.me. After the first 2 weeks, all users will be able to customize their SuperIM URLs.
  • Facebook Chat Integration - ability to IM with Facebook friends directly from Paltalk
  • Paltalk Mobile Support - IM-based mobile support for the BlackBerry
  • Video-Centric Look and Feel for SuperIM - We have added a new "picture-in-picture" layout with four times more space allotted to webcam video

  • Friends Feed in SideKick - new SideKick Tab shows status updates of Paltalk profile friends' activity
  • High Resolution Video & High Fidelity Audio--up to 20 frames/sec with improved resolution and a richer, more enhanced audio experience
  • Windows 7 Certification - the first video chat provider certified as "Compatible with Windows 7" - the Paltalk platform was first certified on October 7, 2009
  • Three new funky sets of emoticons (smileys)

  • We hope you enjoy the new features!
