Paltalk for Desktop Beta

Looking to learn more about Paltalk for Desktop Beta? You’ve come to the right place! 🙂

This new version of Paltalk was built from the ground up, and feedback from our members has been very positive so far. Most of the questions we receive concern features that have moved, changed, or improved. Here are some quick tips to help you learn about those differences and smooth your transition to the furture of Paltalk.

Raise Hand

In Paltalk for Desktop Beta, instead of ‘Raising your hand’, now you can ‘Join the Queue’ by clicking on the Waiting button. You can then see your position in the queue on the button text, and leave the queue by clicking the button again.



We have revamped the Whisper feature to make it even simpler, and reformatted Whisper text messages to make them stand out in the chat so you never miss a message.

Sending a Whisper is easy: type a forward slash in the text chat area and start typing the Nickname of your recipient (you will see suggestions)— then type your message and hit enter to send. Done!


Search Pal List

The old versions of Paltalk had no easy way to find and message your Pals. Now it’s easy! Hit the search button at the top of the Pal List and start typing a Nickname to see matching Pals appear instantly.


Next Video

Another cool feature in the new Beta is the Next button on videos. Move your mouse pointer over a video window and click the Next button on the overlay that appears to move to the following video.
