Singles can now find their perfect match with a new dating app that matches couples based on their musical tastes.
POM (Power of Music) analyzes the songs and melodies people listen to on their phones and offers dating suggestions.
The app associates couples using emotions and creates a “profile” of the person using their music library.
He also asks them six personality questions, and an algorithm helps singles find other people they can make meaningful connections with.
On the POM website, the company says, “We harness the power of music, channeling it into an exciting and inclusive application to deliver authentic and meaningful connections based on a shared love of the same music.

“In a dating scene dominated by sweeps left and right, we like to do things differently.
“POM matches users based on their musical history and emotional responses.
“We use this submitted data to organize a perfect end-to-end social and dating experience. “
The app launched last month and uses machine learning to make “meaningful connections” through music.
It claims to be the opposite of most dating sites that prioritize looks and aesthetics over everything else.
POM already has more than 25,000 people on its waiting list and the application has already been downloaded nearly 13,000 times.
It matches users based on their Spotify or Apple Music libraries, but also analyzes their psychological compatibility before suggesting someone who might be a good match.
On its site, POM claims that it is different from other “bland” dating apps.
He says, “Dating apps have gotten bland and like.
“They only serve one purpose, to keep you on the app.
“Dating is about real connections, face-to-face experiences and the magic of emotion.”
The new start-up was co-founded by Vihan Patel, who at its launch told the start-up and terchnology site, TechRound, he came up with the idea while he was at college hosting club nights.
He said: “It became clear that people behaved very differently depending on the type of party, a rock music themed party or an R&B party for example.
“It influenced what they wore, the drinks they bought and the way they interacted with each other.”
He added, “Matching people on the basis of musical and psychological compatibility rather than physical attraction is the way to go in the online dating world.
“I’m so excited to launch POM and help music lovers find love.
“We have been blown away by the initial interest so far.”
