Luxy Launches New Video Dating Feature

Luxy has launched its new “Luxy Video Dating” providing its singles with a new feature to get in touch with each other.

Video Dating is available daily from 8 to 10pm EST. Interested singles can opt-in in advance or join spontaneously. During the event time, everybody will be connected with up to three matching users for free, successively and at random. Further calls are available for 50 Luxy Coins each as well as Video Dates with specific people.

The event time between 8 and 10pm is carefully set when Luxy’s wealthy members are done with their daily routine and can devote themselves to leisure activities.

Luxy Video Dating falls in line with the increasing demand for interactive capabilities on Dating Apps. Luxy offers video chat features and the connection with social media accounts since early 2021 but didn’t add Video Dating options due to skepticism among its wealthy users:

In 2020, 72% of Luxy users were using mainstream third-party messengers to call and video chat with each other, believing pandemic restrictions to be only temporary and therefore no need for additional video date features on Luxy. However, tables turned in late 2021 when 63% of Luxy users expressed tiring feelings when switching apps to take conversations on a more personal level, such as video chats. 

Luxy refrains from adding vaccination statuses or other Covid-related details to user profiles, not wanting to stir up possible conflicts as they already appear elsewhere online. 

“While we at Luxy believe getting the jabs to reduce risks and returning back to normal is an important step towards ending the pandemic, we don’t want to intervene in this personal decision,” says Tim T., founder of Luxy. “Wearing masks or going on dates in real life remains a controversial topic. But the new Video Dating feature will bring everyone together. It’s the ideal step to check chemistry on a much more personal level to see the vibes and feelings with another person.”
