Tinder has launched a new feature called ‘Face to Face’ that allows people who have matched on the dating app to video chat with each other.

The company says that no personal data is required to begin video chatting and that has been developed with users’ safety in mind.

‘Face to Face was built by the Tinder Trust and Safety team, and ultimately ensures control along the way, prioritising member’s safety,’ the company said in a press release.

‘After testing the feature earlier this year, Face to Face is carefully designed, and includes some key differences which stand out from your typical video experience.’



Here’s how it lays out the rules for its new video chat option:

Rory Kozoll, Head of Trust and Safety Product at Tinder, said: ‘We’re excited to share that our Face to Face feature is rolling out to our global community  after receiving positive feedback from our members who have had early access to it.’

‘This adds to our growing list of features built focused on member safety throughout their dating journey, like Photo Verification, Safety Center and our offensive message detection technology.’

The feature will roll out globally from today, October 27, 2020.
