MICHIGAN DAILY - Jan 11 - Spin the Bottle is a new dating app launched at the end of 2016 by entrepreneur Matt Cohen and software developers Andrew Stanton and Nish Patel. The app, which utilizes video chatting, became available to University of Michigan students in early December, but is available on other college campuses across the country. Modeled after the party game of the same name, users find a match by "spinning the bottle." When someone opens the app, they are met with a circle of profile pictures centered around a bottle. The user presses on the bottle to spin it, and whoever it lands on is immediately called through the app for a thirty-second video chat. After the chat, users can give each other "kisses" to signify interest; if both people give a kiss, the pair matches and can message further through the app's interface.
