The much-popular dating app Tinder will soon be introducing a new one-to-one live video feature to its users.
"Social distancing has required adaptations and pivots and has impacted our business because the manner in which singles engage with our products and start relationships has quickly evolved. We know that singles are adjusting their behaviors, and many are shifting to having dates virtually via phone or video," the company said in its statement.
It added that the feature would be rolled out in the second quarter of 2020.
The statement noted that Tinder's daily active users (DAU) and daily swipes "reached all-time highs in the depths of the crisis". The biggest increase in usage and activity on the app was witnessed from female users under the age of 30, with"daily average Swipes increasing by 37% for this demographic in the month of April compared to the last week of February".
