As one of the most popular mobile chat services, AirG offers thousands of chat rooms on its mobile community to cater to users of all regions, interests and pursuits.

AirG chat rooms require a free account, in addition to mobile Internet access. An unlimited data plan is recommended for chat room use on AirG.

From the chat section, AirG categorizes their chat rooms into three subcategories, each with their own unique niche and audience:

AirG Chat Room Categories

Featured Chat Rooms

By definition, AirG chat rooms within the Featured Rooms category typically carry the largest number of users on a regular basis.

Listed at the top of the chat room hierarchy, these chat rooms attract the widest variety of personalities with their general topics, and are fast-paced with dozens of messages posted every minute.

These rooms are highly recommended for users with a good grasp of how to use AirG chat rooms, and able (or willing) to deal with a larger general audience.

Featured Room Examples:

  • VIP Room
  • Singles 20+/30+
  • Espanol
  • California
  • New York

Regional Chat Rooms

As the name suggests, the Regional Chat Rooms subcategory includes a myriad of topics separated by geographical, racial and age groups. Since these AirG chat rooms are aimed at smaller niche audiences, discussions are often more focused than those in the Featured Rooms section. Communities develop within these rooms, yet are still open to new users.

These rooms are recommended for users looking to make new friends, or those looking for AirG chat rooms focused on a specific topic.

Regional Chat Room Examples:

  • Filipino Singles (Pinoy Love)
  • Latino Gay
  • Aussie Chat
  • Hip-Hop Music
  • Detroit

User Chat Rooms

The AirG chat rooms which comprise this subcategory are the most limited in focus, and have the least amount of users on a regular basis. Users can create your own AirG chat room, or join another previously created. These rooms are good for users who are looking for a more specific niche not filled by AirG's Regional chat rooms.

AirG users should be made aware of the significant number of sexually explicit topics found in User chat rooms; content could contain adult material not suitable for some audiences.

Furthermore, some AirG chat rooms in this category, including those in which members engage in role playing games, can be hostile to new users "invading" their territory. Tread carefully!

User Chat Room Examples:

  • Role Playing Games
  • Niche Regional Groups
  • Gay and Lesbian Groups
  • Religious Chat Rooms
  • Adult Chat Rooms
