The League Dating App – which filters users to make sure they are in the right league ̵
Since the launch of the league in 2015, it has gained the reputation of a dating app for targeting social status snobs . "While your mother may call you picky, we call you self-aware," the app's website explains. "We'll do a check to get you petting."
The app now launches a feature that takes care of people who are too busy hurrying and social climbing to continue on their actual physical dates.
From December 1, some league users will be able to try out Live League . The feature automatically connects pairs of participating users based on their mutual preferences for two-minute video chat dates.
According to Prague each person receives three of these dates at the back, each session being driven by an ice breaker. If they like each other, the app will connect them and allow them to continue talking. League Live is reported to happen only at 9pm on Sunday.
CEO Amanda Bradford told Verge that early tests show the feature is popular with users between the ages of 35 and 40 – probably because they have less time to suck in the evening with someone who may not is able to have a conversation. She also said that this feature is useful for users who do not live in heavily populated cities and may need to travel further for dates.
Bradford told Verge that only users who have a good League Score – based on app activity, account completion and whether or not a user is reported – will be able to use League Live.
The league did not respond to a request from Gizmodo for comment on its plans to expand its dating efforts.
Earlier this year, when China's best dating site Jiayuan began experimenting with video streaming, we said it was only a matter of time before the dating apps in the US began to make users face-to-face time with potential connections . With apps like Bumble, Tinder and Hinge trying new ways to keep excited people excited, it's likely that the future of online dating will start to look like Chatroulette.
