Our Review

Founded in 2011, Lovoo has become one of the fastest growing social app and network with over 70 million users worldwide and still growing. The social dating app was acquired in 2017 by The Meet Group, Inc. (which also operates Tagged, Skout, and MeetMe) for $70 million cash. And its acquisition produced its new flagship product which was recently launched early this year—the “Lovoo Live Video”. This feature allows any member to host and watch video live streams. Members can earn Diamonds from this feature, which they can exchange for Lovoo credits or cash. More on this in our App section below.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • 70 million worldwide users
  • Majority of users are based in European countries
  • Nearly all users are 18-35 years old
  • Most users have a free membership

Majority of Lovoo members are male and female under the age of 35. With its over 70 million users, most primarily come from European countries—making over 30 million of its member database. However, Lovoo also has its fair share of the market in the United States, most of whom are young professionals looking for something to pass the time. Based on our test, it seems that Lovoo in the United States is not used for dating, rather an app to meet like-minded individuals and make friends.

Signing Up

Lovoo Registration
  • 3-5 minutes registration process
  • Users can sign-up using email or Facebook account
  • SMS verification required
  • New members have to fill up a basic information form
  • Profile photo is required to use the app

Registration in Lovoo is quick and easy. The first thing you have to provide is your name, the city you live in, your birthday, and your gender. After hitting next, you have to input a valid email address and a nominated password, then answer a captcha to prove that you are not a bot. Most of the time, when the security system of Lovoo detects suspicious IP addresses or mismatched locations of email and IP address, they will ask you for an SMS verification. When you exit the site to redo your registration, even when you come back to it the next day, you will still be redirected to the SMS verification page. And it will keep doing that for 30 days if you have not verified your profile via SMS. Yet sometimes, when all seems fair and clear, Lovoo would just ask for an email verification.

Making Contact

Lovoo Contact
  • Roulette-type matching available
  • Sending hearts (likes) is free
  • You can add members to a favorites list
  • Search filters are very basic
  • There is a chatroom
  • Free members get 1 free icebreaker message daily

Lovoo offers two ways to meet people. First is their “Discover” feature which is basically a random member search in which you can adjust your search filters. Second is their “Match Game” which is a roulette-type of matching in which you click heart for like or X if you want to pass on the user. Lovoo lets any user send out hearts and put interesting contacts on their favorite lists, but they only allow free members to send one message—or what they call “Icebreaker”—daily to anyone they wish to. If you are a paying member, you will have the ability to see who went and visit your profile and who put you in their favorites list.

Lovoo makes it easy for all their users to block offensive users and report them to the admin. In the mobile app, the report button sits on the top-right of every user profile.

Profile Quality

Lovoo Member Profile
  • Verified badge available
  • Free members can view other members’ profiles if they have completed their own
  • Free members can view other members’ photo galleries if they upload at least 3 photos on their profiles
  • The profiles are poorly detailed
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • Profile photo and information can be changed later

Member profiles on Lovoo feature very minimal information. Profiles viewed from the desktop and the mobile app both showcase the member’s profile photo on half of the screen. The profile information can be seen on the right side of the photo when viewed on desktop, while on mobile, it sits down below. In the mobile app, each profile has 2 tabs—one for information and the other for photos. You are unable to view both tabs if you have not completed filling out your information or uploading at least 3 photos on your album.

App

Lovoo Profile
  • Highly interactive app
  • Easy navigation
  • Required to fill out profile details to see other members’ details
  • At least 3 photo uploads are needed to see all photos of other members
  • Free to download in iOS and Android

Lovoo’s mobile app has two additional features which are the Radar and Lovoo Live. Lovoo’s Radar feature shows Lovoo users who are approximate to your set location. While Lovoo Live is the newly released feature of Lovoo which allows users to host videos streams and watch live streams for free. This feature can also be used to earn money especially if your live videos are popular. Whenever your watchers give you gifts during your live stream, you earn a diamond, and diamonds can be exchanged for credits or cash. Compared to the website, Lovoo’s mobile app tends to be used more by users, and it is highly advocated by Lovoo that users use their app more than its desktop version.

Real Life Review

I was very intrigued by the buzz around Lovoo. I wasn’t really aware of the app—I am a huge Tinder fan—until I saw one of my best buds in Uni laughing over a live video stream. I asked him what the app was and he said it was “one of the best social apps out there” and that I had to download it and check it out myself. And so I did. 2 weeks in, I have conversed with very interesting women, most were also university students. I have watched several live streams and even did some of my own. Although I don’t get hundreds of watchers, I do have a lot of fun. I use the app mainly to pass the time and to get to know some people, and that’s exactly what the app gives me. And the best part about the app is that you can fully experience the app’s features even when you just buy credits! No need to sign-up for a monthly subscription. Rad! - Bill, 20, M, California

Design and Usability


Both the design of the app and desktop feature a clean and easy to use interface. All the features are organized well and accessible. In the app, all Lovoo’s features are represented by icons that can be found at the bottom of the screen. While in the website, the features are found on the top menu bar. Lovoo’s website and app design both stick to using minimal colors of purple and grey. The use of rectangular boxes are prevalent as well. This makes the app very attractive and modern—which is best for their target market who are teens and young professionals.
