General adult cam features
AKA 2 way cam and Cam to Cam. It's like a 2 way, double action, or whatever you'd like to call it. All you need to have is a web cam and you can give your host the pleasure of watching you, as well, and on most adult cam sites this feature is offered at no additional cost.
On ImLive one on one private show you can really enjoy this feature to its max, its the closest to reallity web cams can offer these days.
A new feature recently introduced by ImLive. You can watch videos and live shows of some of the big names in the industry and even find some tips on how to do it like a pro from the legendary Ron Jeremy. Other big names include: Monica Mattos, Tera Patrick, Belladonna and Texas Shugar - quite possibly the hottest mature woman on live cam.
Chatting with the stars is a special experience and therefore costs a bit more. More expensive but can be worth your time and money; prices depend on the specific celebrity. You will be informed of the cost before stepping into the chat rooms.
AKA Spy Chat, Sneak a Peek and many other similar names. Pamper the spy inside you and peep at hot hosts' private rooms without their knowledge. You can warm up or simply watch and learn, after all it's a great opportunity to discover some of the professional secrets of the hottest cam hosts around. This feature used to be more expensive than standard private chats, but recently cost has dropped significantly. Nowadays, becoming a Peeping Tom will cost you as low as 3 credits per minute to watch 6 keyholes at the same time. On Sexier.com sneaking a peek costs 33% of the original chat room cost.
Special Events & Theme Parties
These parties are not on every site, but the good ones should have them. Every week the website hosts an online chat room party with changing themes. Costs vary according to each event. At ImLive, for instance, they pamper their members with FREE celebrity shows every now and then. At Streamate there are daily themed shows available.
This was originally exclusive to ImLive, but now other websites also offer similar notions. Sexier for example names it "showtime" and on PhoneMates this feature is named "Peepshow". It doesn't matter what name you use, it all amounts to the same deal. This is basically a discounted chatting option that entitles you to low-cost video chats with online hosts. The very happy price to step into a video chat room at ImLive for example is only 1.48. On Sexier.com you'll pay the amazingly low sum of 0.88 per minute. Don't worry about when you drop by. Whenever you log on there will always be at least a few webcam models working for the low Happy Hour rates. Their Live Chat windows will be marked accordingly, and you can use this feature to save a lot of money on your live cam shows.
Fan Club Option
Join your special someone's fan club and enjoy discounts on live chat and access to exclusive photo galleries. Of course, this depends on the effort made by the host to make your fan club membership alluring. This is a pretty standard feature available on many sites and as with all things; some performers do it better than others.
Some of the cam models write private journals and blogs and post pictures for their fans. Take notice that basic fan club information can be accessed without actually being a member.
To join a fan club will cost you and you can't move the cash back to standard chat in case you change your mind.
AKA Better Together. This is a fun feature, and as far as I know, is only available on a few sites. It means that you can chat simultaneously with 2 cam hosts and double your fun. You will be charged for video chatting with each host separately. For video chatting with the main host, you will be charged at that host's per-minute fee. You will receive a 0.70 Credits/min discount for video chatting with the second host depending on which site you use.
Video Competitions - as sent in by hosts
Webcam hosts of certain sites are allowed to make themed videos each month and the guests get the opportunity to watch them for free and then vote for their favorites.
Download to iPod
Now it's possible for you to utilize all your gadgets so you never have to live without your favorite webcam hosts. You can watch them whenever, or share them with friends. The download is free but you normally have to have credit in your account.
This webcam feature is also called "split screen" in certain websites, which is a real description of what it is. Live Viewer allows you watch several webcam models at once, on their live video chat rooms. You can view up to 6 performers at once and can spy on them without them noticing.
No need to search for your favorite webcam performers every time you log on. With this live chat feature you can construct your own private favorites list and use it to find your preferred video chat room every time and with no hassle. And there's more: Many websites also add another feature, which notifies you when the models on your "favorites" go online.
This is a nifty feature that allows you to create the ultimate "wish list" with all your needs and requests and have hosts that think they can comply get back to you. A similar notion is found in "The Matchmaker" feature, but in that case you create a wish list and the site automatically lists hosts that answer the criteria.
Make a Date
This feature is an iFriends special. It allows users to set up private chats with hosts, even if they are offline. The users ask the performer to meet for a private session in a specific date and time, and then wait for an approval. This allows users to save time and know in advance when to log on, not to mention reserves the host's time so no other user can steal her away.
This feature, which is also called Notifications, informs users when anyone in their Favorites list goes online. The alerts are sent by emails or even by SMS, depending on the adult cam site you choose.
Another naughty ifriends' feature. This is really just a feature that appeals to those who hate looking for the perfect webcam. It lands you in a random chat room and you can decide if you want to stick around or move to the next one.
One Click Purchase
The innovative WebcamKing allows users to put additional credit into their accounts without leaving the video chat room they are currently on. In just one click users add funds and make sure that the live show could last for as long as they like.
