Love in isolation: dating app ignites human connection


Three Aussie entrepreneurs have launched a dating app that could spark romance during the coronavirus pandemic and the compulsory isolation measures. Tech start-up Concha hopes to inspire millions of people globally with their conversation-based dating app, which encourages users to call rather than text.

The app which advertises ‘Talk before Text’ has differentiated itself by appealing to people who want more of a connection whilst searching for love. Voice messages can be sent before texting too, encouraging users to share the tone of their voice rather than hiding behind the safety-net of a text.

Their marketing shows imagery of couples in love which appeals to people looking for something more serious, another shift away from other dating apps.

The trio are confident their app will be a disruptor to the industry and will be a welcome source of connection during the COVID-19 pandemic. “This is next level online dating” says Giandzi, “building a platform where people can have an actual conversation will ignite a spark in our users’ lives a lot quicker than the ordinary text-based dating apps”.

Concha is available on the App Store and Google Play
