With the novel coronavirus pandemic still ongoing, online dating app Tinder plans to add a video chat feature to make online dating easier for its users.

“The pandemic has dissolved the lines between our digital and physical lives. This cultural shift was already underway with our Gen Z members — but the pandemic is accelerating and broadening it to other generations,” said Tinder CEO Elie Seidman in a statement.

According to Seidman, this new way of life “has been a driving force” for innovation for Tinder. The company looks forward “to bringing new experiences, including live video, to Tinder in the near future.”

A letter to shareholders that was published on May 5th says that Tinder “clearly remains a go-to app for meeting new people, which has become an even more critical service with so many people stuck at home.”

“Tinder plans to launch one-to-one live video late in Q2,” it then added.

“As daters demonstrated strong willingness to video-date, our product and engineering teams around the world mobilized quickly to deploy one-to-one video chat capabilities on many of our platforms,” the letter read.

Fox Business reported that Tinder also added a “Passport” feature to its app last month. This allows users to reach other users from outside their home country.
