After just under five years in the online dating market, Coffee Meets Bagel has launched a premium service.
Costing $34.99 a month, CMB Premium brings a set of exclusives for paying subscribers.
The biggest of these is access to “activity reports”, which give you a selection of stats about your daily matches, and how they use the app.
The reports will give insights such as the number of chats where that match has sent at least one message, divided by the total number of connections – for example “Chats with Bagels 75% of the time”.
It will also reveal the number of times that person has sent the first message, again divided by the total number of connections.
The activity stats will also surface whether that match has been active in the past 72 hours, and their average response time to messages.
These activity reports update every 72 hours, and are only available by subscribing to the monthly premium service.
Beyond the activity reports, the paying level gives subscribers read receipts – something also recently added to The League’s premium service – which will tell singles if their match has read their message.
Subscribing also brings a monthly top-up of 600 “beans”, Coffee Meets Bagel’s virtual currently, valued at over $50.
These beans can be used to get more daily matches, unlock mutual Facebook friend details and let you crowdsource data about your best profile pictures.
Speaking about its new premium layer, Coffee Meets Bagel said: “You told us you want more clarity on how active your Bagels are, and more predictors to help you determine how responsive your Bagel will be to your chats.
“With Premium, we’re aiming to address these concerns to help you save time and focus on meaningful connections that lead to real dates!”
Currently only available on the Google Play store, the premium subscription costs $34.99 a month – check it out here.
