If you’re looking for a new dating app — which, let’s be honest, you’re probably not, because there are already about 12 billion out there — here’s a fun one. It’s called Revealr, and rather than relying on photos of users’ faces, it relies on recordings of their voices.
Available now for iPhone, the app requires users to log in through Facebook and then record 20-second audio introductions. That recording, along with the user’s name, age, location and a very pixelated photo, are shared with potential matches. Once two users both swipe right for “like,” they are matched up and their photos are revealed.
From there, it’s pretty much the same as Tinder or any other non-voice based dating apps. That 20-second audio bit could be pretty helpful, though. What if someone has the face of an angel but the voice of drunk Gilbert Gottfried? Better to find that out early.
