TECH CRUNCH - Desti is a new video-focused dating app that allows users to find matches based on a preferred date destination. The app launched in Austin, Texas. Desi doesn't have a "like" feature, so people are forced to start conversations. Users can send a message to a person, and the receiver can accept or reject the message. They can only see one at a time and must pass or reply to the message to move on to the next. There is also a friend version of the app called Besti, which is currently in beta. The company raised $1M at $5M valuation.
