About this app

Good conversation, good feeling. The chat network is there for everyone who is looking for a good conversation. Daily from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. throughout Austria.

What is the chat network?

The chat network allows people who feel lonely to call. You will be connected directly to volunteer chat partners. If you like chatting with people and enjoy meeting new people over the phone, then the chat network is the right place for you!

The chat network is a quick help in moments of loneliness: just call 05 1776 100 and get connected with other people. For chat partners, the chat network offers a new opportunity for social commitment - independent of location and flexible in terms of time.

The chat network is an initiative of Caritas in cooperation with T Magenta.

Who is the app intended for?

The app was developed for registered chat partners. If you are not yet registered, you can easily register at

Callers dial 05 1776 100 as before and are connected to a chat partner. An app for callers is not available.

What are the functionalities of the app?

- Specify availability: With the app you can enter as a chat partner at what times you would like to be available for conversations. You can specify your available chat times per weekday and hour and change this information at any time. You will only receive calls within your specified times. If you do have time to chat, you can just click "ON" and take calls immediately.

- Activate sleep mode: The app allows you to set a sleep mode until a certain date or indefinitely in case you are on vacation or want to take a break.

- View the call list: In the app you will also find out how many calls you have accepted and how many hours you have already been on the chat network.

- Give feedback on calls: You can give us feedback directly on each call. We look forward to all your feedback - be it when a conversation was particularly nice, but of course also when something didn't go the way you imagined.

- View profile: You can view your specified phone number and email address in the app. You can also log out of the app again.

The Plaudernetz team wishes you lots of fun with the app!
