Social media giant, Facebook, is testing a video speed-dating app called Sparked. The app, which requires a Facebook profile to create an account, is developed by the company’s NPE Team, Facebook’s in-house group that works on experimental apps.

According to some media reports, this dating app will be different from others, the Facebook Sparked does not have public profiles, swiping, or DMs, and that it’s free to use. The app will seemingly cycle people through speed video dates that last four minutes and up to 10 minutes maximum.

After that point, Sparked suggests they can exchange contact information and stay in touch through Instagram, iMessage, or email.

This would be the second dating product from Facebook. Facebook Dating, which operates out of the main Facebook app, launched in the US in 2019 and has since rolled out to various countries, including, most recently, the UK. It operates similarly to most dating apps in that people can view a public profile of a potential match and then send a like to possibly receive one back and start a conversation. The NPE team has launched many apps, none of which have particularly taken off, so it’s unclear how committed Facebook will be to Sparked.

There is no news by when this video dating app will arrive in India.
