With this, we would also like to proudly announce the two recent updates on our portal: (a) launch of Wingman / Matchmaker feature on Android that will allow committed users to connect their single friends and join the fun of matchmaking, and (b) launch of GoGaga on Apple’s App store for our iPhone user.
“We feel delighted and proud to be a part of the Bootstrap track of Facebook Start Program. With the help of this platform, our mobile app would become more user-friendly coupled with various unique features thereby making dating trustworthy, fun, safe and relevant for users than ever before,” said Neha Kanodia, Co-founder, GoGaga.
Recently, GoGaga has added many more exciting features to its mobile app. GoGaga helps users to find trustworthy and relevant matches through their friends via a two-layer authentication system. Users first like a profile and request their friends to make an introduction. If the mutual friend vets the connection, the two connected individuals can start a conversation. This two-layer authentication ensures trust and with the mutual friend vouching for the connection, adds an interesting fun aspect to dating.
GoGaga is a digital equivalent of traditional matchmaking where friends and common connections introduce two singles looking out for prospects. It imitates the way couples meet at schools, universities, workplace, friend’s parties, interest groups, travel, clubs, among others, ensuring high-level trust and extreme relevance. The concept resonates well with the classical Indian matchmaking, in the way 7 out of 10 couples meet offline in India.
