LOS ANGELES: Dating application Tinder is now testing a new interactive video feature in the form of live trivia, the company confirmed on Thursday.
According to The Verge, the test will be rolling out to an undisclosed percentage of users and is designed to help Tinder experiment with live video while also matching people up.
Since it’s going to be a new option, there’s no set time when the trivia will show up, and the game’s mechanics could change frequently.
The game will be between a group of people who can broadcast live, as the screenshots appear to suggest. A live chat is also present.
“Similar to our first digital shared experience offered on Tinder, Swipe Night, we plan to bring more of these activities to Tinder in the future. However, these concepts are only a test and may never launch. We look forward to providing more information when it’s available,” says the company.
Slowly introducing its video and interactive experiences on the platform, the company started the advancement with looping GIFs and then with Swipe Night.
As confirmed by Match Group, Tinder would launch its own one-on-one video chat feature this year, as well, but this trivia function seems to be more of a way to help people connect and find something to do rather than just messaging.
