The dating application Tinder has begun to test in Spain a new function with which it allows its users to get to know each other through video chats, a feature that is only enabled for ‘matches’ , when the two people have given’ me like each other.
The new function, which had already begun to be tested in the United States, will begin to arrive on a trial basis in Spain and other countries this summer , coinciding with the new normal, as announced by Tinder in a statement to which Europa Press has had access. .
Tinder video chats, as the function is known, incorporate a series of security functions that distinguish them from the usual video calls, such as that they are only possible between users who have a ‘match’, that is, that they have been given to me like each other.
Also, video chats are only possible in cases where both users activate the video icon , and the other person is not notified when this option is enabled.
Tinder users can disable video chat at any time, and have to accept the rules of use before starting to use them . At the end of each call, it is possible to send a report reporting any problems.
Video chats were already being tested in the United States, where half of Tinder users had a video call appointment with a ‘match’ in the last month.
In addition, Tinder has also announced that it will begin verifying profile photos using a Human-Assisted Artificial Intelligence feature that checks whether users are really who they say they are.
Verification is based on a six-step process in which the user has to take a selfie with the mobile camera. The checked profiles will be marked with a blue ‘tick’ sign.
