Tinder will launch the function allowing to call by video your matches

Soon, you won't have to leave Tinder again for a virtual meeting with your matches. Match Group, the parent company of the dating app, said it is developing the video chat function between two people.

We know that single people are modifying their behavior, and many are turning to date by phone or video," he wrote in the first-quarter results statement.


Match Group said it is accelerating the development of creating "single video chat capabilities" on many of its platforms. This most likely indicates that in addition to Tinder, the functionality will also happen in other dating apps for startups, including Hinge and OkCupid. 

Although it has not disclosed the details yet, the company said that video calls will be released first to Tinder users near the end of the second quarter.

Earlier last month, Hinge Brothers' dating platform Hinge also got an update allowing users to notify their matches that they are ready for the date of the video call. However, to contact someone, people still have to resort to another communication app outside of Hinge.

Like many online services, Tinder has experienced notable peaks in its engagement figures. She says the average number of daily messages has increased by 27% in April since the last week in February. In addition, she said active users and daily scans "have reached unprecedented heights".

However, with requests for home shelters, the company faced the first drop in payment for users from February to March. It should be noted that Tinder has made one of its premium features called Passport free for everyone which allows users to scroll anywhere they want rather than just their region.

Virtual dates have increased recently as people find it increasingly difficult to meet personally during a pandemic. Tinder, the most popular dating app, will likely be looking to capitalize on this trend with the two-person video chat feature.

Tinder isn't the first dating app to add video calls either. Many of its competitors have been offering this option for quite some time. Bumble, based in Austin, Texas, made in-app video and audio calls almost a year ago. Facebook also plans to integrate the video calling function into Messenger directly on its dating system.
