Even while pandemic quarantine and social distancing rules loosen slightly in some regions due to some gradually declining Coronavirus case numbers, much of 2020 dating remains online. Most social media platforms and dating apps added features such as enhanced chat and secure video meetups to get possible couples face to face when they can’t meet physically.
Now, the Say Allo dating app added Live, a virtual video speed dating service. With that function, now even the controlled chaos of quick-hit meet and greets also move online
When it debuted, Say Allo looked to separate itself from the social media pack by building a “continuous learning algorithm” to employ the user’s choices toward the buildup of intelligent connection choices. Now, Live takes that algorithm and exports it to virtual speed dating.
Now active, Live enables its iOS and Android app users to connect with up to 10 people over the course of 15 minutes during a speed dating session. Before a potential match is revealed, user profiles begin to “un-blur” slowly while the parties respond to questions designed to break the ice between two users.
As with many social media and dating apps, Say Allo Live lets women make the first move. Before the date begins, women can use the “Reveal Now” function to clear the other user’s profile immediately to bypass icebreakers and jump to the virtual date.
As with many other dating apps that moved to more video-based virtual dates, Say Allo’s Live speed dating is secure, allowing no personal information to be shared before, during or after a video date.
