Online dating is as normal and prevalent as face masks these days. Today you can order groceries, translate languages , and find love all from your phone; as the saying goes, “there’s an app for that.” So, it should come as no surprise that a new dating app for Latinos is on the way.

It is called DiHola, and it’s made from the same folks as Say Allo. Say Allo is the dating app that is a self-described “GPS for your love life.” It has features like virtual video speed dating and game show-like ways to meet new matches. The new sister app DiHola is meant to answer the call for single Latinos-with some added features. Users will be able to send an icebreaker through video chat after a match is made. And, not only can you add your country of origin, you can also check out your match’s COVID-19 vaccination status.

Pew reports that of the 61 million Americans who identify as Hispanic or Latino, 17 million of them have used an online dating app or website. That is a whole lot of potential new matches for single Latines out there. And what is more interesting is that both apps use a continuous learning algorithm based on cognitive behavioral therapy technology. In other words, it uses artificial intelligence when assessing potential compatible connections.

DiHola is launching later this month. Interested users can get a jump start by signing up for an invite prior to launch. Relationship Manager Theresa Martinez told Remezcla that as of May 5th, over 28,000 people have signed up for the waitlist. DiHola will be available on Android and iOS.
