Emotions, Not Emojis

Swell is powered by the human voice. Every post and share has a voice attached to it.

Our voices humanize us — conversations on Swell are genuine as you can hear the emotions, understand the intent, and feel more connected to the speaker.

On Your Time

No scheduling necessary. No missing out on what's important. On Swell, you start a conversation whenever you want to, listen at your convenience, join when you choose, and you can always catch up with what you missed and continue a conversation any time.

Authentic

Swell is designed for people to share firsthand accounts and perspectives. Any shared content comes with a voice and explanation, and users can provide links to credible sources to prevent the spread of misinformation. Memes and mindless forwards have no place on Swell.

No Ads

There are no ads on Swell. We believe that ad-driven ecosystems have the wrong incentives and go against our goal of fostering thoughtful and authentic conversations.

You Are in Control

At Swell, you are in charge. You control who can take part in your conversations and you can moderate and remove any replies within your conversations. You can use members-only Groups to manage who can listen and talk to you.
