Dating apps have become the new normal, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, and many developers are trying to make the new Tinder or Bumble. The problem is that the dating app market is already overcrowded and it’s tough to create an app that will stand out from the rest of them. To become the next big matchmaking app, it’s not enough to just add swiping to the left or right.

Developers need to think outside the box.

At Mei we’ve spent over 4 years analyzing millions of text messages to understand relationships through digital channels. With the help from our users labeling hundreds of thousands of conversations as romantic or not romantic relationships, we’ve been able to build neural network models that can accurately predict the type of the relationship from the text messages that are fed into it, without asking the user. We believe complementing a dating app with our AI can help people navigate through dating apps with less frustration and make developers stand out. …

At Mei we are committed to improving your messaging experience and believe RCS is the future of messaging. We’re working on supporting RCS and it will be available in upcoming releases.

What Is RCS?

Rich Communication Services (RCS) is a type of messaging protocol that will upgrade and replace SMS. RCS will allow for improved media handling via Android messaging such as high-resolution photos, GIFs and videos.

Similar to iMessage you’ll be able to see when a contact is typing a message and when they have received a message when you both use RCS.

RCS will replace SMS and finally allow Android phones to compete with iMessage and over-the-top messaging apps like WhatsApp, Telegram and WeChat. Think of it as iMessage for Android. …
