Dating application Tinder is now testing a new interactive video feature in the form of live trivia, the company confirmed Thursday. According to The Verge, the test will roll out to an undisclosed percentage of users and is designed to help Tinder experiment with live video while matching people.
As it becomes a new option, there is no set time for the trivia to appear, and the game’s mechanics can often change. The game is between a group of people who can broadcast live, as the screenshots seem to suggest. There is also a live chat available.
“As with our first digital shared experience on Tinder, Swipe Night, we plan to bring more of these activities to Tinder in the future. However, these concepts are only a test and may never be launched. We look forward to provide more information when it is available, “the company says. Slowly introducing its video and interactive experiences to the platform, the company started making progress with looping GIFs and then Swipe Night.
As confirmed by Match Group, Tinder would also launch its own one-to-one video chat feature this year, but this trivia feature seems more like a way to help people connect and find something to do rather than just messaging # (ANI)
