The dating app just integrated facial recognition into its software and is enabling users to take advantage of the technology in the best way imaginable: by searching for celebrity look-alikes. Whether you have a taste for David Gandy or want to get political with your very own Nicola Sturgeon, we suggest you make the Badoo app your next download.
Though we're not sure every result is perfect, with 751 Idris Elbas, 687 Emma Stones, and 1,603 Kate Moss "look-alikes" to match, you certainly aren't pushed for choice.
Plenty of people out there would love to date Selena Gomez, Zayn Malik or Drake and while dating app Badoo can't deliver the real thing, it is making an effort to deliver the next best thing.
The Bumble partner website has recently launched a lookalike feature that will sort its 350 million users across the world to find those who resemble a favorite celebrity, friend or anyone else you happen to have a photo of. But while everyone may not look just (or, in some cases, much) like the celebrity he or she is matched to, it does at least organize one's search by a type of physical characteristics.
Badoo is here to put a halt to all that pining over Chris Pine.
A new app called Dating AI has accomplished the impossible: It has found a way to let you date your favorite celebrities… Instead of sifting through a sea of duds to find the one guy who's just your type, Dating AI searches through all of the different dating apps to show you only the people it Needless to say, other dating apps aren't super thrilled about this process, Buzz Feed reports.
A Tinder spokesperson told Buzz Feed that they have “contacted the developer to inform them that the app is violating our terms, and we have been told that they will address the issue.”In response to that, the app's founder, Heath Ahrens, told the news source, “We've been having a very productive conversation with them.”He also seems pretty chill when it comes to the fact that a rep from Plenty Of Fish is reportedly making moves to have Dating AI, which has 15,000 users already, removed from the i Tunes App store.
After all, maybe you have a type, so this new feature could help you date even more people within that type!
"We pride ourselves on listening to our millions of users around the world," Andrey Andreev, Badoo CEO, said in a press release announcing the new lookalike feature.
