Tinder is moving into the next big phase of narcissism with its first video-based feature being tested with iOS users in Canada and Sweden.
In a new blog post the dating app announced the arrival of Tinder Loops, a feature which generates moving images/video that’s similar to a GIF or Instagram’s Boomerang. The feature will essentially allow users to upload a two-second long ‘looping’ video to their profile in order to stand out more amongst the sea of
thirsty eligible partnerless men.
How so? Think anything from two-second breakdancing moves to the mandatory alpha-male-bicep-flex-in-gym-mirror which will surely be a hit alongside the I’m-in-a-pool-hair-flick from the ladies.
It doesn’t end there though. If you’ve got more than one talent to show off, Tinder will cater to up to nine Loop photos instead of the standard six. That’s nine different muscle groups you can spruik (probably leave out the erection one yeah).
Tinder is currently trialling the feature to determine if users and potential lovers warm to the idea of live images.
Swiping left just got harder. Or would that be easier?
