Tinder is the most popular dating app for people to find persons who match their dating requirements. Many love stories have been started by using this app.
The app is always trying to upgrade its features and recently it was announced that Tinder was expanding its in-app video chat feature for users all over the world. This feature before its release was tested in different countries and after such successful experiments, the company has now decided to launch this feature globally.
This feature was previously only limited to iOS users but now this video chat feature is also available for android users.
How to use this latest feature:
We have listed the steps by which you can use this video chat feature in the Tinder app.
- First of all, you need to navigate the messages of the person who has matched with you.
- On the top of the screen, you will see a video icon. Tap it
- You just need to slide the toggle and you have unlocked the video chat feature.
- When both parties have unlocked this feature you will get an authentication message.
- Now you can easily tap the video call option and can talk face to face with your matched person.
This feature is launched so that it could make dating easier in the era of Covid-19. Although there are many safety issues with this feature and tinder has been working for safety purposes. Now people can easily date others by staying at home. Lesser risk of getting viruses too!
Tinder knows that there can be some people who can be creepy and will abuse this feature so Tinder has announced that this feature is quite safe and trusted as it requires the confirmation of both parties for getting a video call. However, if you’re still getting stalkerish vibes from someone you can either report the person or you can ignore the calls just like a normal video call.
With the reference of stats given by App Annie, Tinder has been in the top rankings of the most downloaded lifestyle application this year. It is also in the third position on iOS in the United States.
Now we have to see, whether Tinder will be able to get the trust of its users. With the cases of sexual harassment increasing day by day, it will be quite tough work for the company to manage the safety of their users.
