Hily Reaches 10 Million Global Users

Hily, the US-based dating app founded by Alex Pasykov in 2017, has now acquired more than 10 million global users.

The service analyses each user’s profile, in-app activity, likes and dislikes to help make lasting connections, and also offers a 30-question test that singles can use to find their ‘compatibility rate’.

It has climbed Sensor Tower revenue rankings this year, appearing in the iOS and Android combined dating top 10 every month since June. 

The size of Hily’s community increased considerably over the same time period, with the platform launching across Latin America, Australia and parts of Europe this year.

Pasykov said: “This is a great milestone for us. We are really proud that so many people all around the world trusted us with their relationships. 

“We are hoping to make even more impact by landing in Asia. The news will be announced very soon.”

The entrepreneur is also behind the LGBTQ dating and social brand Taimi. Last month, it announced a partnership with the Gay Times

The news came shortly after Taimi added Spotify integration in an update intended to help users express their personalities.

Speaking to GDI in January, Pasykov said: “Dating apps are no longer the place to find a spouse. Users employ apps to socialize. Users seek a product that will be suitable for making friends, acquaintances, dates, finding city guides, career opportunities, like-minded people and instantaneous communication. 

“This is especially important for gay apps, as the LGBT community is often discriminated against in real life and seeks a free and safe place to express itself.”
