SCMP - Newborn Town is testing metaverse features for its dating app Yumy, which has 30M users outside China. The feature is called Meta Town, and it will be incorporated into its dating app Yumy. The app has had ~30M worldwide downloads since launching in early 2021, with some of the best performing markets being Egypt, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand and Britain. Users taking part in the beta test have been able to create avatars based on their photo, find other virtual figures, and engage in audio conversations that are supported by AI. Match Group is working with South Korean-based Hyperconnect to create a virtual world "Single Town". Similar to Yumy's Meta Town, singles can interact and engage in audio conversations in virtual locations.
