The Ship app is different than other dating applications on the market as it is friend-powered. Launched in collaboration between Betches and Match Group, the platform allows "friends [to] set each other (or themselves) up."
The Ship app prompts users to set up a 'Crew' which consists of their friends. The 'Crew' then sets out to find potential matches and discuss the prospects. In addition, the application also welcomes people who are in a relationship so they can join their single friends' Crews and be part of the fun.
In addition, Betches and Match Group are attempting to legitimize the Ship app further by making a public plea to the Oxford dictionary to update the definition of 'ship' as the act of "endorsing a romantic relationship."
