1. Smart homes will be a storyteller
OOPS, does it mean it will invade privacy?
No, of course not!
As we all know Smart Homes will sooner be a reality in the coming years, and these homes would churn out data that can tell a LOT about the people living in. It can be made possible with the networked home featuring devices such as smart body analyzers, smart appliances, smart mirrors, smart entertainment, smart security, air quality analyzer, among many others. From your clothing style, diet you consume, or even the hygiene you maintain, dating metrics can learn more about you, that will share your personality insights.
2. Connect with someone sharing the same interest
IoT has a specific mechanism that works around in professional and personal space. When you use IoT enabled dating apps, then certainly you pave a way to connect with the partner, who holds the same interest. Apart from the data generated from the networks, it gives deep information about the behavioral traits. For instance, wearable tech helps in generating significant data like location, app use, media preferences, user photos, spending patterns, exercise patterns, sleep patterns, mood, and much more. With the help of data, an algorithm gets developed, which extracts not just the information about the realm of traits and attitude but also dimensions for compatibility. So you don’t have to worry about getting connected with someone who isn’t compatible enough.
3. Stay connected without a pause
Trust is the most important thing, to start a new relationship, and certain activities in and around your daily regime, must not deter your lovey-dovey routine. Dating apps can certainly make the most out of the IoT technology, which would help both the user to stay connected and send messages to each other regardless of their tiring schedules.
With the IoT, dating apps can actually convert the information into a more accessible format and let voice assistants convert voice messages into text messages.
There has been a surge in online dating that has come out of necessity, and will not down-size its space anytime in the future. However, technology needs to be utilized wisely to maintain the privacy and security of users.
Online dating has indeed transformed the way we communicate and find love, and the inclusion of IoT in dating apps has made the road easy to find love.
