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 ***

This app is great and I've made great friends from all over the world that I still talk to after years. The only flaw is that they took away to ability to block more countries. It's only a flaw because some countries are more prominent in the app and a lot of us want to meet more people from less prominent countries. Like 5 people in a row will be from the same one out of 4 common countries

Thank you for your kind words :) We didn't remove this option, it is still there under your app settings, inside the "discovery preferences" menu :)

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!!!

Very overwhelming. You don't get a chance to breathe. A lot of bottles just pile up. I had the app only a day, and I had hundreds of bottles to look through. My notifications just kept dinging from this app alone. Then some of the people who I did keep, deleted the conversation because I didn't respond in a "timely manner." There's no skin tone options, which sucks. It's not for those of us trying to practice social skills. You're pushed right into the water. You have to be ready immediately.
