We recently hosted a focus group at our NYC headquarters and were fascinated to discover that many female users felt pressured to give out their phone numbers. It’s typical dating app behavior that after a few texts inside the app’s chat, the male user suggests to exchange phone numbers and move to regular text messaging.
We learned that our female users did not feel comfortable doing so right away but were curious to hear what their Crush sounded like. So we came up with a great solution for this scenario! Hearing somebody’s voice before meeting in person can be important to some people. Inside JCrush and MiCrush chats, our users can send voice notes in order to get to know each other. I highly advise using our “Send a Voice Note” feature to get to know someone before meeting them in person 😉
