The next best version of Tinder is here. Taking dating online to a whole new level, Spin Labs recently introduced a new app called Spin the Bottle that connects users to nearby single users and have a 30-seconds video chat with them. The app makes use of a virtual bottle that players can spin to decide who they video-chat with, in hopes of discovering a date.
“With so many “swipe left, swipe right” dating apps out there right now, we wanted a way to take people beyond the often misleading, perfectly manicured profile pictures and get them right to face time,” said Matthew Cohen, CEO of Spin Labs. “Looking into someone’s eyes and having a conversation, even a 30 second one, can be much more revealing than reading a list of interests and seeing a gallery of heavily edited, perfectly filtered selfies,” he added.
How it works?
Players spin a virtual bottle and get matched with another single user located nearby. Post which, the users enter a 30-second video date where they can chat up their potential match. If the two users like each other, they can give their date a kiss and see if they return the affection. The users can then connect through messages and continue video chatting.
The app comes with a special ‘Flick’ feature that allows users to remove users that they don’t like. The app’s ‘Direct Hit’ feature allows them to dictate who the bottle lands on.
“Spin the Bottle has always been a game of chance, so we want users to feel that excitement as the bottle spins and they enter into these face-to-face video dates. It's exciting and we think people are really going to love it!,” Mr Cohen added....
