Tinder to soon allow users to gift Lyft ride in the US | #tinder | #pof

NEW DELHI: If you use Tinder then you now have a new way to impress your date. The popular dating app has partnered with Lyft in the US. With this new association, Tinder users will be able to gift rides to their dates without leaving the app.

The company has not yet revealed any specific date for the roll-out of the feature but as reported by The Verge, it will roll out in coming months. Tinder also mentions that the usual Lyft features like location sharing will be available from the Lyft app for the gifted rides.

Presently, it is not clear at what point the user will be able to order a Lyft ride.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Tinder will soon enable its users to run background checks on their potential dates.

Match Group, the company that owns Tinder and other dating apps has announced its investment in Garbo, a non-profit which enables users to run background checks using only the first name and phone number or the full name.

These background checks on Tinder will not be free. However, the company has not yet revealed whether users will have to purchase the standalone feature or it will be part of the paid subscription.

It is also expected that after the successful inclusion of the feature in Tinder, the company might introduce the same in its other dating apps like OkCupid, Hinge and Match.
