Vinylly Dating App Uses Music Compatibility to Match Users

Tinder and Bumble get a music-based competitor

As Mixmag reports, the app is dubbed as a ‘first of its kind’, and the largest dating app based solely on music compatibility, Vinylly saw more than 18,700 matches alone in 2022 and amassed more than 40,000 profile views.

Vinnylly connects people through their taste in music, as it looks into your streaming habits and consumption, and asks questions to each user about their tastes and preferences.

Earlier this week, Vinylly founder Rachel Van Nortwick tweeted some statistics from Vinylly’s recent growth, sharing that the app was recently “recognized by Mashable as one of ‘8 dating apps that are bucking against Tinder’s model’.”

“I have been working hard on Vinylly, the inclusive dating app focused on music compatibility,” Van Nortwick explained. “I thought I’d share what we’ve been up to because we are shaking up the dancefloor.”

Vinylly also allows users to create and share playlists, which saw more than 21,000 playlists viewed in 2022. Those on the app can also link their Spotify accounts, and chat with other users using music-based openers.

“We launched our own proprietary profile generator, giving all music fans the ability to create a profile in minutes. Users can still sync their Spotify too,” added the founder. “Vinylly’s mission is backed by science. Connecting through music increases dopamine, and oxytocin, and lowers cortisol.”
