Slowly, as its name suggests, has a less immediate proposal than other apps of its kind. The service seeks to rescue the experience of making friends by exchanging postcards with strangers, as was the case in the not-so-distant past.
Before finding someone to correspond with, it is necessary to define subjects that are of interest to you and then inform the languages you speak. You don’t need to identify yourself, just create a nickname and an avatar.
You can choose people to send the message or let Slowly select. Then, just write the text, select a stamp and send the postcard. The letter takes the time it would take to reach the recipient if it were a real match. That is, the further away, the longer the wait.

If the chat flows well and you want to expand contact with the other person, the solution is to add it in another app. But for that, there are a number of options, such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp or whatever you like best.
