Featured as Product of the Day on Product Hunt (Aug. 2019)
In Dabel, anyone in a live stream can join the conversation. Hosts of live streams can invite any listeners to talk with them and stream together. During a stream, just find the listener you want to talk with and invite them to become a speaker. Audio stream live for up to 2 hours and respond to comments in real time. High compatibility with VoiceOver means the community is accessible to anyone. With Dabel, you can talk with anyone about anything, with all the warmth and emotion of a person's voice.
• Share ideas, laugh at jokes, and express yourself in a more authentic way.
Unlike text, voice gives you the ability to express yourself with the emotions you can’t simply write. Dabel is a place for people like you who want to talk about their interests and share experiences with like-minded people.
• Join the discussion anywhere, anytime.
Unlike most social media platforms, on Dabel you are never judged by your looks, age, or beliefs. This is a community where all are encouraged to speak about what they are passionate about. Here, users can say what they are feeling without fear of judgement. Have your opinions heard and your emotions felt.
• Find other people passionate about what you love.
Dabel is a place of warmth, open and welcome to anyone who wants to freely speak their mind or just listen to casual conversation. Get away from the cold, unfeeling ocean of cynicism, and commerce that social media has become. At Dabel we believe that meaningful communication needs a proper space -- a home to live and breathe in.
With Dabel, just hit a button and have your voice heard.
Now loading is faster than ever! We’ve reduced the number of streams that show up right away, but this is only after you scroll down. However, it will now be much quicker to load and we think you’ll agree it’s a better way to do it. We also fixed an issue with the comments section that would prevent you from scrolling to the bottom comment. Finally, the Listener List is now called the Invite List, but don’t worry, it’s just the name that’s changed.
tl;dr Home screen loads faster. Comments section bug fixed. Listener List is now called Invite List.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app. I really like what you guys are doing, making a social platform with no visuals, only voices. Its easy to use, and I haven't had any problems navigating it at all. There are a few things I'd like to see added in the future, but not many. First would be private messaging. I'd love to be able to talk to people on the app without having to stream. Also, it would be nice to have a button where the app would only show streams that are currently live. Other than that though, this app is great. I hope you guys keep doing what you're doing, and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

We're so glad to hear it's easy to use! Just to let you know, with the latest update, live streams now show up at the top of the feed, so it should be easier to find all the live streams. We'll keep working to make Dabel easier and more fun to use!
Could use some work
Okay so one thing that's really frustrating about this app is that when I'm on it, and someone is no longer on live chat, it still claims that they are. Then when I go into the livestream, it says this live stream has already ended. GRRRR. This was even after I had tried refreshing the app. It said someone was in livestream, I tried to enter it, and the livestream had already ended. Also, apparently sometimes, the host is disconnected from their own chat. Everyone else is still on the chat. When the host tries to rejoin, they cannot be heard and can only comment, so everyone has to leave and the chat has to be restarted. Also, I'd like to be able to message people. I'm using a bluetooth keyboard, and it would be awesome if the play/pause button on my keyboard actually pause the stream I was listening to, instead of having to find pause and double tap it. I'd also like to be able to rewind and fast forward using my keyboard. Otherwise, great app and I look forward to improvements.

Thank you for the review and feedback. With our recent update, there is now a message that tells the host when a listener has left. We apologize for the connection issues, we're working to fix them and we appreciate the patience as we keep making improvements!
Great app!!! Some suggestions and questions
Great app love the audio and love that you listen to all your customers! Some suggestions are that you could private message, be able to comment on past streams, could click on a notification in the notifications tab and could put keys on the sounds. Do you plan on making in app purchases? Or subscriptions? My recommendation is that you don’t do either of the two because people don’t want to stay with an app that is not free. This app has brought a lot of users from an app called vorail that’s an audio network that used to be free. Also it was for the blind. Hope to hear your answer soon! Thanks for taking the time to develop this amazing app, as well as taking the time to read my review. Thanks for listening to all your customers! God loves us just the way we are! God bless! ✝️☮️💓😇😌😇😊☺️😀😀😀😀💜💜💜❤️❤️
