Gen Z can let avatars go on dates for them now
The Future. Gen Z-focused dating app Snack is jumping into the AI craze by allowing users to create and train avatars that can chat with one another to determine if the real people behind them would be a good match. In other words, it’s a dating app’s algorithm brought to life. While Snack’s new feature may be just a big swing to break through the noise, it could foreshadow a coming age where the “meet cute” is outsourced to 1s and 0s.

Snack wants to do the dating for you.
- Snack is allowing users to create and train AI avatars by answering questions about themselves.
- The avatar then goes out into the world of the app’s algorithm to start chatting with other users’ avatars.
- If the avatars think you two are a good match, it’ll let you know so you can scope out the other person and start chatting for real.
The ultimate goal is for avatars to start going out on dates in the metaverse all on their own before two people decide to meet IRL, which sounds like a futuristic version of getting set up by friends.
Let’s just hope Snack lets you review the conversations to ensure the date didn’t go off the rails.
