Bottled is building a positive and supportive community, away from the toxicity prevalent in Social Media.

Try the modern version of sending a message in a Bottle - a new way to meet people, have fun, and have meaningful conversations!

This is how it works:

1) You write a nice message, put it in a bottle, and throw it to the sea. Your bottle will be randomly received by someone, somewhere in the world.
2) If that person decides to keep the bottle, you have a new friend and you can start chatting with each other!
3) And if your message gets released, your bottle will float back into the sea to be received by another random stranger!

On Bottled you can:
- Send a photo, voice, or text message to someone somewhere in the world.
- Follow the journey of your Bottles in real time
- Play "Spin the Bottle" for fun questions and challenges and chat with your new friends from all over the world!

Don't know where to start? Let our "ChatGPT powered" Cheeky Captain help you write a nice message!

Whether you are looking for a new friend, a penpal, positive support, or a genuine intellectual connection, let serendipity decide your chance encounters with Bottled!

Slowly or instantly, you chat at your own pace and without pressure; improve your wellbeing and mental health on this supportive community. *** If you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact us at ***

I love the concept of this app, and have had a great time using it in free time or when I am bored! It's a great way to learn about so many different types of people when you're unable to travel and learn yourself, and it helps to learn a bit more of how to engage others in unfamiliar settings! The mechanics are also very pleasant to use and look at! overall a great experience for anyone looking for more international social connections and learning without means of doing so through traveling!!!

It is a really cool idea. Would have loved to keep 4 I dislike that we can only block 1 to 4 countries we don't want to receive bottles from. Seem to aleays get swamped with thebones you don't want. Also, I wish we could choose where we would like to talk to. I would so pay monthly to be able to block a lot more countries and to be able to have option choose areas where bottle goes instead of hoping for a compass lol. Great idea, would have kept it if it weren't for these annoyances.

Too expensive. The cost is discouraging open communication. Fewer people keep bottles because they're more busy collecting enough to reach the world, which takes forever to accomplish. Also, the bug causing the text for the bottles to be hidden behind the keyboard is still there. Please fix. Furthermore, there should be an option to copy and release a bottle so a person can keep a nice message even if they don't want to communicate. Finally, an option to reply directly to a bottle.
