While some singles swear by affinity-based dating platforms, others prefer to find themselves towards applications like Tinder. The latter has just deployed a new video chat feature called Face to Face. We now explain how to arrange a virtual meeting without exchanging your private phone number.
Online video dating on Tinder
The Tinder application is no longer presented. The online dating service that uses the GPS of your smartphone to find other singles in your area is a hit all over the world.
It’s free, easy and in a few clicks you can easily meet people. But going from virtual to real can be scary for many people. With the new face to face function, you will be able to talk and see the person you like without putting pressure on yourself.
You can meet a girl or a boy you find cute while avoiding bad surprises. Indeed, if you have been looking for a rare pearl on dating websites for a while, you certainly know that reality is sometimes very different from the profile pictures.
Launch a Face to Face video chat
A nice meeting can be done behind a screen without leaving your apartment. After all, you can build strong bonds by talking behind a camera. And your time is precious. Why take one or two hours of public transportation for a date with a person whose views are completely opposite to yours.
Thanks to the Face to Face function, you will be able to check if the person you are looking for looks like what you imagined. It’s a good system to avoid the pitfalls and disappointments of the Tinder dating application. And if the current passes virtually, nothing prevents you from moving on to the real meeting.
- Install on your smartphone the latest version of Tinder
- If necessary, launch the Play Store and update your dating application
- Then open the Match tab
- Then click on the bubble-shaped icon at the top of the screen
- Then select the person you want to have a video conversation
- Click on the camera icon
- A warning message will ask you to activate the one-to-one option
- Your correspondent will have to follow exactly the same process (both people have to do the same thing)
- Then press the call button
Once the call is launched the screen will be divided into two perfectly identical areas. The two protagonists can easily see each other and control their appearance. You can be sure to show the best of yourself.
If the connection is not made or if the person you are talking to displeases you, it is possible to hang up with a simple press on an icon. Note that at the end of the call, you will be asked to answer a small questionnaire to report people with inappropriate behavior.
In the end, it does not change what already offers Zoom, WhatsApp or other applications of video chat. But with this system you don’t need to give your cell phone number and then you can immediately see if you share interests.
The video conversation is a new feature launched by Tinder in full containment. The deployment is done little by little in France and in other countries. Do not hesitate to check regularly that the update is available for your smartphone.
