Dating App Coffee Meets Bagel Ditches Twilio With New Im Features | Techcrunch

Coffee Meets Bagel takes a different approach to online dating. Instead of offering up a buffet of potential matches, CMB simply offers one person each day. You can either like or ignore, but if both parties like each other, theyre routed to a private phone line (powered by Twilio) where they can SMS for a seven-day period. If they choose to go on a date, CMB offers a discount at a local restaurant or cafe. Today, however, Coffee Meets Bagel has implemented its own IM system within the app, meaning that users can get their chat on immediately without flipping back and forth between apps. Just like before, the IM feature has a seven-day expiration date. Coffee Meets Bagel puts a lot of focus into making meaningful connections between users, as opposed to just offering volume. Candidates shown to users arent often just random people, but rather Facebook friends of friends who you havent quite met yet.
