The League (ed)
The dating app League – you know, the elitist that pairs users with other singles in their "league" and requires a LinkedIn check ̵
From December 1, League Live will automatically pair singles based on their mutual preferences and location. Once paired, users are given three dates in six minutes and to initiate the (awkward) conversation, the app will submit ice breaker questions. How romantic.
During a short date for a person, users can "heartily" have another person, and if they like each other, they will become officially "match" and they will be able to talk on a date-organizing platform.
As The Verge first reported, the feature is accessible to both paying and free users, but only to those who have a high League Score, measuring user activity, regardless if they were, and if their account is completely completed, they will have immediate access.

In addition, was this feature most appealing to rural dwellers, who usually have to travel quite a distance to meet the potential 'one' and who has a successful and fast single to do so?

Back in January, industry leader Shijijiayuan first launched a video streaming feature aimed at facilitating live conversation between multiple participants – a kind of talk show where app users are both hosts and audiences.
