Chess With Friends

Play chess and video chat with your friends at the same time, no login required. Just pick a room name and share it with your friend. All rooms are public, so be sure to pick one that is hard to guess. I made this so our kids could play with their friends, but it should work for anybody. Enjoy!

Works best in Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge on PC or Mac. Other browsers and mobile devices will not work, since they do not support in-browser video chat.
