Tinder is said to be testing a new tool dubbed ‘Swipe Party,’ which allows your pals to pick your dates.
Tinder is set to test a new tool dubbed ‘Swipe Party,’ which allows you to have your friends assist you choose dates. This tool will allow users to filter through potential mates in a more sociable manner. You may invite pals to your swiping sessions as they scout for dates with the ‘Swipe Party’ function.
According to data uncovered in the Tinder mobile app’s code, ‘Swipe Party’ demands access to your phone’s camera and microphone so your pals can “see and hear you while assessing possibilities.” According to the study, this “Tinder with Friends”-style experience expands on what is already a popular offline pastime.
Friends now often swipe through the app together, deciding which profiles the Tinder account holder should attempt to match with, according to the report.
Swipe Party, on the other hand, seems to be Tinder’s attempt to turn this into a virtual experience in which a user may ask a “guest” to join their swiping session and provide comments remotely.
This is part of a larger trend of co-browsing applications, such as Apple’s SharePlay, orca-watching films with friends, as offered by Prime Video, Disney+, and Hulu, for example.
The tendency was already gaining traction, but the COVID-19 epidemic and its social distance rules boosted it even further.
The Swipe Party function was initially discovered in the Tinder Android app’s code by the Dutch website GratisDatingTips, and subsequently reblogged as a rumor by publications such as Pocket-lint and PhoneArena.
