With COVID-19 pulling us away from loved ones, calling is more prevalent than ever. If you're going to listen to your significant other all day, you better enjoy the sound of their voice!
What it does
Listen to voice recordings in a voice assistant and decide whether to swipe left or right through voice commands.
How we built it
We built the frontend dialogue using Voiceflow while the backend uses Firebase (Storage to store audio files, Hosting for a single page for audio uploads from users and Cloud Functions for an API for random retrieval of an audio file).
Challenges we ran into
We were unfamiliar with some of the technologies and had to learn how to use them quickly. It was also challenging to work remotely at this virtual hackathon.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Built a fun project at an awesome hackathon!
What we learned
How to communicate and set objectives even when working from home.
What's next for Voice Tinder
The project can be extended to develop a matching algorithm based on swipes.
