Vinylly, a dating app based on music compatibility, announced it is now available for Android users on the Google Play Store in the US and Canada. Vinylly pairs potential matches based on their music streaming data and music tastes. Unlike other dating platforms, the Vinylly process begins with users pairing their Spotify accounts with their profile, taking first impressions beyond the superficial likes or potentially misleading bios. As a user streams more music, the algorithm responds and Vinylly produces new matches. Users can also listen to their matches’ recent songs and playlists, and discover new music that way.
With the new Android release, Vinylly has upgraded the platform to invite users to direct message their matches at no cost, making the app completely free for users. Additionally, the app has created a new chat function that offers starter messages to help break the ice. The starter messages are pulling info from a potential match’s profile so conversations start a layer deeper and are more personal. Both the free-to-use and new functionality have also launched as an update for iOS users.
“We are excited to expand our user base to include Android users,” said Rachel Van Nortwick, Vinylly creator. “Since our launch in 2019, Vinylly has helped those looking for a deeper connection find love, without superficial filters.”
In addition to music preferences, potential matches are also connected based on proximity and other dating categories. Keeping to the platform’s theme, bios showcase a variety of music-related fields — ranging from past music purchases to concert habits.
As users continue to social distance, Vinylly provides access in the chat function to suggest live streaming concerts for its users to attend as well as live concerts when they return. This gives connected users a variety of custom-tailored, music-inspired date ideas to stream — adding safe and socially distant options to the current dating scene.
