String: to hear what your match sounds like

String: to hear what your match sounds like

The dating app for voice-note lovers. String launched this year as a way to make dating during self-isolation more personal. Rather than sending strings of robotic one-liners, the app lets you put a voice to your matches’ pictures by sending each other voice-notes. No texting is allowed: you can either react with an emoji or send one back.

For extra audio points, Spotify is now integrated into the app so you can add your favourite song to your profile.

Feeld: for exploring your identity

This one’s for singles and couples and it’s more about helping you find your next hookup than anything too serious. You might just find out more your own sexual identity, too – users say Feeld has helped them discover polyamory, meet best friends through threesomes and changed their perceptions of gender forever.

The casual sex up is based on your location and lets you choose from more than 20 sexualities and gender identities to find a partner interested in the same sexual experiences as you. You can also pair profiles with a partner if you’re already in a relationship, or create group chats. Go wild.

Profoundly: for personality over pictures

Profoundly helps you open a conversation with interesting questions and entertaining icebreakers. Only when you’ve chatted enough will it unlock your match’s photos – the 2021 edition of Blind Date.

It’ll match you with people nearby who have similar interests and lets you send anonymous confessions to Facebook friends so you can finally tell that guy from school you always fancied him.
