Vinylly Launches New AI Feature: Digital Cocktail Lounge

Music-Focused Dating App Utilizes Artificial Intelligence to Connect Singles Through a Digital Mixer

Phoenix, AZ, June 2, 2023Vinylly, the free dating app that matches users based on music compatibility, is proud to announce the launch of a new feature powered by artificial intelligence. One of the very first dating apps to use AI, Vinylly uses ChatGPT to generate drink recipes, based on each user’s unique taste in music. Tapping on the rocks glass icon in the app takes users to Vinylly’s cocktail lounge. Vinylly users can choose two genres to blend together to create a unique cocktail with real recipe links to send a match in the chat or to create together in real life. With recipes like “Sonic Serenade” or the “Symphony of Shadows,“ users can find the perfect cocktail to complement the music on each other’s profiles. 

“With our first AI feature, we are excited to give users new ways to engage about music. We’re developing more features with AI that when combined with our own aggregate user data, will drive insights and outcomes music lovers won’t find anywhere else,” said CEO and Founder Rachel Van Nortwick.

Inspired by her deep love for music and its ability to connect people, Van Nortwick launched Vinylly in 2019 and has been reinventing dating for music lovers since, helping them connect on a more personal level as opposed to relying on superficial profiles and swipes that often lead nowhere. Fueling Vinylly’s growth is both traditional dating app fatigue, the popularity of streaming services, the resurgence of vinyl, and the abundance of music festivals and concerts. Vinylly has grown over 12000% since its launch.

I have always thought a dating app should be substance over superficial. We focus on authenticity where users can be themselves and can easily connect with others using their music DNA, and that’s especially important in today’s world, where YPulse data shows music is the number one thing young people use to express themselves,” shared Van Nortwick.

About Vinylly

At Vinylly, we believe (and science has proven) that the music we love and the way we listen to it is a powerful window into who we are – connecting us on a deeper level and providing us with a solid foundation to develop and maintain lasting relationships. Vinylly is a free inclusive dating app that matches users through a proprietary music profile generator or if a user chooses, an analysis of their streaming history. These combined with a few questions about the role music plays in their lives, enables Vinylly’s algorithm to provide “high volume” matches. Users have the ability to create and edit their playlists and to browse matches and press “play” when they want to connect, as well as chat and get concert tickets for first dates all without having to leave the app. Available on the U.S. and Canadian AppStores, Vinylly was recently recognized by Mashable as one of the “8 dating apps that are bucking against Tinder’s model.” To learn more, visit www.vinyllyapp.com.
