Swell is a warm and welcoming audio community where you can talk about everything from mental health and spirituality to pop culture and politics.

You can share fun anecdotes and stories, provide your unique perspective on important issues, or discuss personal doubts and struggles. You will discover many friendly voices and thoughtful replies when you talk on Swell.


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.


Just because it is audio does not mean you have to set aside a lot of time to listen to everything. The new “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.


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.

Love it!

This app is a great way to connect with people and hear their stories. The new update is amazing and so easy to use. Not only is it visually appealing, but it's also easier to navigate and access! I recommend this app to everyone as it is extremely inclusive and fun to use!

I set my preferred subjects and the app’s “For you” feed still includes all topics, and there is no way to turn off the editor’s picks. I want *zero* political or COVID content, yet am bombarded by it. That is unacceptable and why I use the News Feed Eradicator app on my FB and Twitter accounts.

I don’t like the UI/UX. It feels clunky. I also hate the 15 character limit on usernames because I need 16.

Basically, Swell seems a lot like the Stereo live talk radio app except more like Twitter than FB and therefore not as deep... not that I love Stereo either. Rather, I love the *idea* of Swell and Stereo, just not the execution. And the user base on both are so small, it’s like shouting into the void.

This app is changing the way we speak to people online in the most positive way. It’s incredible in the way you get to use your voice to have real and meaningful conversations with others and to create amazing connections. 10/10 recommended!!
