If you want a cam site that offers you a dynamic viewing experience, a range of great live webcam chat streams and a host of gorgeous amateur chat stars, the ImLive is the place for you. An older site with a lot to offer, it has some revolutionary features that change the live chat experience completely.

In the world of live adult webcams, there is one name that carries with a reputation for excellence. ImLive is a site that has a long history in the world of real amateur cams and to this day is continuing to evolve and improve its services to keep their users happy.

User experience

The site is free to join, and is one of the few places where the benefits can be found instantly, with a free membership.

The site opens by presenting you with a list based structure of the live adult webcams models that are broadcasting at that moment in time.

The site offers a range of different show types, with the industry standards of free chat and private chat being the bookends for everything else that comes in between. The show type is clearly displayed meaning you know in advance what you are getting yourself in for. If you hover the mouse over the image of the real amateur cams model in question, then you will see a live stream of the show in progress, which is a nice feature as it gives you foresight as to what your chosen model is doing and allows you to decide whether or not this is the chat stream for you before loading the page.

The site offers multiple ways of viewing the live webcam char streams on the site:

  • Host List
  • Tile View
  • Gallery View

The views are all based on thumbnails. The site has one additional bonus that sets it apart from the rest: the Multicam stream is revolutionary in the amateur cams world. It offers you the ability to watch six different live webcam chat cams all at the same time. The benefit of this is that you are not making your viewing decision based the live adult webcams show itself rather than a profile image.

The chat shows themselves are based on a private show format, which means that for non-paying members, and even paying ones watching the free real amateur cams, the shows are not so much exciting or arousing but more teasing. They are there to get you through into the private shows, where and the real fun starts. Private shows on ImLive are some of the hottest on the net, and more than worth the cost.

There is very little in the way of options within the chat show itself:

  • Full Screen Mode
  • Buy Credits
  • Favorise the Model
  • Enter a Private Chat

The nice thing about ImLive is that the models are nice and interactive. Even with free users they will spare some time to chat and engage. This has not always been the case, but it is getting better by the day.

On top of this the site run a daily program where 12 lucky members are given their money back for that day. So in theory you could add 100 credits to your account, and at the end of that same day, have the money paid back to you. This is not something seen very often, and shows the commitment and to their site and their members.

Search options
