  • Only issue I’ve had is the messages don’t update well.
  • I have the app on my phone and iPad.
  • If I get the message on one, it doesn’t update and show on the other.Also, it’d be amazing if there was a translator function for the comments in live stream.

I understand the video and person itself would be hard to translate but the written comments would be nice if translated to help follow videos where you don’t 100% understand what’s being said.

I’ve been using the app for almost 3 years I love live-streaming because I get to talk to people from all over the world, Colombia, Spain, Africa, Mexico, the US, China, Vietnam, etc it’s so easy to use, the environment is so intuitive you get familiar with it in a matter of minutes, they have a lot of dynamics where you can participate and everything from the comfort of your home, the app is for free.

I personally feel very drawn to participate in every contest because they’re fun and super friendly as a streamer I would totally recommend the app but if you just want to watch me myself I enjoy it a lot too see the people you’re talking to real guys you can meet in person if they are nearby.

Best way to meet a ton of guys, fast.

The app has a section where you can see people around where you live, talk to them, see new faces, you can see who visits your profile, give super likes to guys it’s just a great app and everyone is super friendly no harsh on labels like other apps I 100% recommend it Thanks for reading.

I’ve been streaming on Blued about for two months and it's been pretty great. I was going crazy during lockdown in my apartment alone 24/7 and I wanted a place to hang out with other guys like me, make some friends, flirt - just have fun.

The other apps just weren't doing it for me. I would swipe a ton or send a bunch of messages out and just wait around forever for a response. Here I can just start streaming whatever i'm doing, any time I feel like it, and guys just come to me.

After a while i'm hanging out talking to dozens of guys at once.

  • I’ve even met a bunch of other guys from my city I never would have met otherwise.
  • And when i'm done streaming I have a ton of messages waiting in my inbox from all the guys who saw my live stream.
  • We're happy to receive your feedback.

  • Launched in 2012, Blued is a world-leading one-stop mobile destination for gay, bi, trans, and queer people.

More than a dating app, it integrates location-based networking services with live streaming, customizable social news feeds, video and voice calls, as well as access to professional health-related services in selected markets.

Pretty good so far

Available in 13 languages, Blued has connected more than 60 million users in about 170 countries. Blued is now the largest online LGBTQ community in China, India, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam in terms of MAU in 2020, and has local operations in Brazil, China, India, Japan, Mexico, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, the US and Vietnam.

The platform is the central hub for BlueCity (NASDAQ: BLCT), a world-leading online LGBTQ platform that provides a comprehensive suite of services to foster connections and enhance the wellbeing of the global LGBTQ community.

The company became the first LGBTQ-focused company to go public in the era of mobile internet when it listed in July 2020.

More than a gay dating app, Blued integrates location-based social networking service with livestreaming and other matching ways so that the users can contact each other via messaging, expand relationships and network from online to offline and discover content.

Features include:. Livestream entertainment: From singing to dancing, working out or chilling at home, there’s an audience waiting to tune in.

On Blued, anyone can be a host – broadcasting chats or talent shows, receiving gifts from fans and even cash rewards.

In addition to solo-broadcaster live streaming sessions, we also enable our broadcasters to collaborate with each other to conduct one-on-one battle and multi-broadcaster sessions.

Chat, video and messaging: Users can meet and connect with friends from around the world – or just next door – using photos, GIFs, audio and video messaging, and free voice and video calling.

  • Matching in new ways: Members can pin favorite influencers or send crushes just like on other popular social networking apps, or connect through an “Quick Chat” feature that allows users to join live video for speed dating.
  • This feature pairs users in seconds based on spoken language and location. Meanwhile, for those who prefer voice communication, they can get connected to people around the globe in the Voice Chat Room in some markets.
  • Healthcare services: More than a gay dating and content app, Blued offers access to healthcare services in select countries. For example, users can locate the nearest HIV testing centers and book services online in private.
  • A safe space for all: Blued utilizes a combination of manual screening and AI image recognition technology to promptly remove any inappropriate or illegal content in live streaming sessions.
  • The app strictly limits underage users from the platform. It also prohibits screen shots and screens recording during live-streaming and video calls.

For those who are not out and have greater concern over privacy, Blued offers sending photos for a time limit option which bans download and repost.

As a champion for diversity and equality, Blued is committed to using its innovative platform to inspire each and every user to live to the utmost with love and courage.

You can download the app from either the Google Play or Apple App Store.You can also visit the official website of Blued here.

Alors n’attends plus !

Ultimately, it’s a lie because you don’t live in that city.

It just a bit silly and a major critique I have of the site.

I would steer clear of a shadow profile, that’s for sure, but ultimately that’s a decision for each individual that downloads the app.

Developer Response,

There is a feature on Blued where you can see the exact location of other users.

This uses GPS to track them.

From my perspective, this is something that I turned off.

I don’t feel that it’s safe at all.

If you’d like to turn your location off, you can do so under the Profile menu.

Just go to the settings and find the option there.

Blued connects one of the largest online LGBTQ communities

Another gripe that I have about the app is the amount of advertising on it.

Now this isn’t something new and you will find advertising on most dating apps, but generally, it doesn’t get in the way.

On Blued, however, you are going to have to get used to sitting through 10 second, full-screen adverts from time to time.

Membership to the app takes this away, of course, but it really is pretty annoying for regular users.

Data Used to Track You

Now it’s time to turn our attention to how the app operates in helping you to find matchups for a quick chat, video call, messaging and perhaps more.

Conducting your own searches isn’t possible here.

Instead, you are going to have to rely on the app and the matchups that are sent your way.

These are generally based on your age and obviously your location.

You can click on the Explore menu to see them.

Click on the Nearby menu to see those that are close to your location or the Online menu to only show matchups that are currently online at the same time as you.

But how do you manipulate these matchups?

Are there parameters that you can change to narrow them down or to search for something very specific, for example only users with blonde hair?

Well, the good news is that you can select specific parameters.

It just took me ages to work out how.

You will notice a slider and magnifying glass icon at the top of the screen.

And while that might seem like the obvious place to start adjusting search parameters, it isn’t.

If you click on this, it does have a search option but you can only do that if you input a username which isn’t very helpful first up, is it?

Instead, you will have to find the Filter button which is on the right-hand side of the secondary Smart, Nearby and Online menus.

Once you have clicked on it, you can change the following.

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Age
  • Language
  • Ethnicity
  • Face pics only

If you take out either a VIP or X membership on the site, you have a few more parameters added:

  • Role
  • Distance
  • Time last online
  • Return only member profiles

You may not think there are that many parameters here.

But for me, they have included the ones that count, even for free users.

All-in-one dating, content and health services app

So the good news here is that you are free to send messages to other users on the app as well as reply to any messages you receive.

I find that a pretty interesting way to handle communication on the app.

But I was able to send messages to multiple users and reply whenever I had to.

Sadly, in my region, although there was a ton of profiles as matchups, the reply rate wasn’t always the greatest.

I guess that’s because some of the users haven’t been active on the app for a while.

But yes, this is going to be different for everyone, and with free messaging, you’d be silly not to at least give Blued a tryout.

Family Sharing

Blued has two membership options, X and VIP.

They offer different key features but if you click on the payment link in the app, it’s easy to see what these are.

I am going to highlight a few of them to you now before we looking at pricing.

1. View more top-rated profiles

While Blued does show you top-rate profiles near your location, with membership you can access more of them.

2. Make your profile invisible

Many dating apps have an incognito mode but Blue allows you to set it up quite specifically.

This means that you can make yourself invisible to some users but not others which I guess could be useful from time to time.

3. No advertising

I found the advertising on Blued to be very annoying.

OFL exclusive offers - Check all of them

"Serious Relationships""Discreet Hookups""Best Course"
"Quick Flings""Normal Hookups""Our Quiz"

This certainly is a useful key feature and removes all adverts from the app.

4. Advanced search filters

Blued members get extra search filters.

This includes preferred role, distance from your location, the last time they were online and the ability to only search for other members.

5. Hide your distance and online status

While I do get the need that some users have for extra privacy, I don’t see the need to hide your distance and online status from a potential matchup.

Surely distance is one of the main factors in someone reaching out to another user?

I mean, if they are closer to you, then it’s easier to hook up right?

6. Exclusive badges

As a member, you get an exclusive badge for your profile.

7. Flying comments

Flying comments allow you to interact with other users and their audience while they stream.

This is an intricate part of the live streaming aspect of the site which really doesn’t fit in with the dating site of things, I feel.

But they are there to use if that’s your kind of thing.

Pricing

So with two different kinds of membership, there are two separate sets of pricing to look at for Blued.

The one that will provide all the features is Blued X.

Here’s a breakdown of what it costs:

  • 1-month: $12.99
  • 3-months: $14.99 ($5 per month)
  • 12-months: $74.99 ($6.25 per month)

Without a doubt, if you are going to sign up for Blued X membership, the three-month option is the best.

I can’t understand why the longer 12-month option has a higher cost per month than the three-month option.

You would think it would be lower.

Now let’s look at the Blued VIP options prices.

Here’s a breakdown:

  • 1-month: $3.99
  • 3-months: $7.99 ($2.66 per month)
  • 12-months: $23.99 ($2 per month)

Of course, this is cheaper because you won’t get access to all of the extras that you do for Blued X.

I think I would start off here first because, at $3.99, the pricing is spot on.

For me, the most critical thing about any dating site is the ability to message other users and that’s a free feature on Blued.

You really couldn’t ask for more.

In fact, if you didn’t want to take out membership, you could use the app pretty effectively without it I feel.

The last thing I would like to talk about under this section of the review is profile boosting.

It’s something you can use to get your profile out there but it does cost a fee.

There are three Boost options:

  • 1 Boost: $1.99
  • 5 Boosts: $7.99
  • 15 Boosts: $17.99

If you buy a Boost, you can use it at any time that you choose.

Conclusion and Overall Rating

Thanks for taking the time to read through this review of Blued.

To summarize, this is one of the top dating apps for gay men in the world, that’s for sure.

And 40 million users around the globe only substantiates that.

It is important to note that many users are from the Far East, over three-quarters, in fact.

But if you are from Europe or the United States, you will certainly find matchups near your location thanks to the sheer amount people who have signed up for a profile on Blued.

The dating aspect of Blued works well.

I like the fact that it doesn’t use swiping to match up with others and that you can browse through profiles on the site based on your location and other parameters.

Regular users too can adjust a range of parameters to get the kind of matchups they prefer.

And then, you are free to message them as well without having to sign up for membership.

That said, membership brings extra features some of which I think are useful.

Don’t forget the social networking aspect of the site with live streams and more.

It’s extremely popular but I am not sure how it benefits dating overall.

Blued isn’t the first site to add this aspect to their app and won’t be the last as it’s something users in the Far East clearly love.

But let’s get onto an overall rating for Blued.

It gets a solid 3.5 out of 5.

If you are a gay man looking for a new dating app, it’s something you should at least try out.
