Not long after switching from swiping to "stories," dating app Hinge aims to add a personal assistant who automatically sends messages to matches and schedules dates. Rumors mention a $99 USD/month price for the upcoming service.

Dating apps are quite popular these days, but Hinge aims to take the online dating game to a whole new level by adding artificial intelligence to it. After switching from swiping to "stories," Hinge is now testing a personal assistant known as Audrey.

According to the official website of an earlier Audrey release, "We know the back-and-forth of getting to the first date can be frustrating, if not futile. That’s why we’re introducing Audrey." The basic explanation of how Audrey works can be reduced to just three steps:

  • the user selects the people he/she is interested in
  • Audrey reaches out, introduces the user, and schedules a date "if the feeling is mutual"
  • Audrey "provides data and feedback along the way" to help the user "find that perfect match"

Sadly, the last two steps above were not mentioned by the web site of a more recent Audrey version. Everything is quite shady at this time, but those interested could sign up to test the service. If everything goes well, we will probably hear more about Audrey in the future.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
