Videos are the latest way to seduce people on your dating app

Latest news

    Hinge isn’t the first dating app to start working on a video feature. Bumble announced earlier this year that it would be adding Snapchat-like video stories that disappear after 24 hours and Match is also developing a video option that allows for stitched-together videos, photos and voiceover. Neither of those dating services have rolled those features out yet, but Badoo introduced video to its app last year. Other popular apps like Tinder, Happn and OkCupid haven’t announced any plans to add video. However, Tinder bought the video messaging app Wheel in February, so its video feature probably isn’t too far away.

    Hinge’s feature is limited to existing videos, meaning you can’t shoot a new one directly in the app. But there doesn’t seem to be a time limit for uploaded videos. The video feature launches today on the updated app.
