There is no scheduling needed to start a conversation or listen to one. There are no invitations required to join a conversation. You don’t have to miss out on great conversations because they already happened. You can listen, post and reply to any conversation at any time. Today, tomorrow, or next week.


From mental health and spirituality to podcasts and politics, tune into your community by listening to audio stations on various topics and interests. Discover trending conversations and top speakers. Start your own conversation in any station.


Share your conversations on any website or social platform. All users get their own public Swellcast page at www.swellcast.com/yourusername, and each conversation can be shared via a link or by exporting a 30 second video clip.


Add your Swell conversations on your own website or blog by using two lines of simple HTML embed code. Learn more at https://developers.swellcast.com/


Create invitation-only Groups for your family, friends, or people who share your interests. Posts in Groups are private and only available to invited members.


Just because it is audio does not mean you have to set aside a lot of time to listen to everything. The “text snippets” feature uses speech to text technology (for English language content) to show short pieces of relevant text from the audio content, making it easy to browse and quickly discover interesting voices and replies in a long audio conversation. Quickly catch-up to what people are talking about on Swell without having to listen to every conversation and reply.

A suggestion I have is to allow me to personalize my app experience through allowing me to change the color scheme. Also, personal swells that don't have to be about starting a conversation - on your personal page. Maybe a limit of 2 or something. Just to share a thought purely for sake of sharing it. The color scheme as it is makes everything feel unexciting and dull. Still getting 5 stars because I love the concept and I'd like to see more people join the app and for things to further develop.

Wow. I love that days after I join I see the app update has the addition of user-requested features, such as speedier playback (1.5x or 2x speed). I liked the suggesrion when I first heard it in the app and I especially like that the devs are not only attentive to feedback but responsive in acting on it. The whole premise for Swell is unique. I predict if the team stays open to change in the UI, while standing by their core mission, it will be more and more successful. Kudos.

Swell is a great and unique audio sharing social media app. It is quite different from how people interact on other social media apps. It really help to improve confidence in speaking English if someone is regularly interacting with other people on it. Overall nice app and will become better with more people joining it.
