Time to go on a virtual date with Tinder

Yes, you read it right, you can now go on a virtual date with Tinder. Tinder today released its new video chat feature called as Face to Face and it doesn’t require people to exchange number. In a period where it’s staggeringly hard to see anybody face to face, not to mention date, Tinder is giving its clients a down to earth arrangement.


Face to Face contrasts from other video talk highlights in a couple of ways. For one, the two individuals need to select in to the call to get it going. When they tap on the video symbol in the right-hand corner of the text talk screen, they’ll be provoked to pick in to video calls with the other individual. After they and their match do as such, they’ll have the option to decide. They can quit whenever.


According to the team, yes it is. Prior to calling, the two individuals need to consent to keep the call PG — that implies no nakedness or sexual substance and no references to abhor discourse, viciousness, or criminal operations. When the call begins, users will see the screen split down the middle, so the caller can generally consider themselves to be huge as the individual they’re reaching. Bernadette Morgan, senior product manager on Tinder’s trust and safety team, says this was done on purpose so people can make sure they still look good and aren’t showing anything in the background they might not want broadcasted.

When a video call closes, every individual is incited to answer whether they’d need to have a call again and are likewise allowed the chance to report somebody in the event that they accomplished something wrong. The group says it has “no intention” of recording calls, says Rory Kozoll, the head of trust and safety product. So on the off chance that somebody is accounted for, the group apparently wouldn’t have the option to return to the offending substance. Kozoll says the group is going to “lean heavily” toward believing client reports and what they state occurred.


However, this feature is currently rolling out for testing in 13 countries, including in the US in Virginia, Illinois, Georgia, and Colorado, as well as in Australia, Brazil, and France. The team is planning to perceive how well the video calls work from a specialized point of view, similar to how the servers handle them, before turning the feature out more broadly.

Let me know in the comment section below if you think this feature will make Tinder stand out from its rival Bumble, which already has this feature.
