Swivel is a video speed-dating site that's been likened to Chatroulette for eligible singles, as it offers a way for people to connect face-to-face from a distance. On the site, users can be matched with up to 10 people per day and Swivel promises to take "all the weirdness and risk out of randomized chatting" for experiences that are both safe and fun.
To connect users, Swivel uses an algorithm that considers location and gender preferences, so that one verified user can be matched with another. As people on the platform are looking for friendship and relationships, Swivel users can add users to their favorites so that they'll be likely to show up on the feed again. Users can also leave a chat at any time, and dislike or block users they don't connect with.
