Singletons can now find their ideal partner through a new dating app which matches couples based on their music tastes.
POM (Power of Music) analyses the songs and tunes people listen to on their phones and provides suggestions for dating.
The app matches couples using emotions and creates a ‘profile’ of person using their music library.
It also asks them six personality questions and an algorithm helps single people find others with whom they could make meaningful connections.
On POM ‘s website, the company says: “We harness the Power of Music, channeling it into an exciting, inclusive app to deliver genuine, meaningful connections based on a shared love of the same music.
“In a dating scene dominated by swipe-lefts and swipe- rights, we like to do things differently.
“POM matches users based on their music history and emotional responses.
“We use this submitted data to curate a perfect end-to-end dating and social experience.”
The app was launched last month and uses machine learning to make “meaningful connections” through music.
It claims to be the opposite of most dating sites which prioritise looks and aesthetics over everything else.
POM already has more than 25,000 people signed up to its waiting list and the app has been downloaded almost 13,000 times already.
It matches users based on their Spotify or Apple Music libraries, but also analyses their psychological compatibility before suggesting someone who might be a good match.
On its site, POM claims it is different from other ‘bland’ dating apps.
It says: “Dating apps have become bland and similar.
“They only serve one purpose, keeping you on the app.
“Dating is about the real connections, the face to face experiences and magic of emotion.”
The new start-up firm was co-founded by Vihan Patel, who at its launch told start-up and terchnology site, TechRound, he came up with the idea while at university where he organised club nights.
He said: “It became apparent that people behaved very differently depending on what type of night it was, a rock music or R&B-themed night for not example.
“This influenced what they wore, what drinks they bought, and how they interacted with one another.”
He added: “Matching people based on musical and psychological compatibility rather than on physical attraction is the way forward in the online dating world.
“I’m so excited to launch POM and to help music lovers find love.
“We’ve been blown away by the initial interest so far.”
