Tinder Rolls Out Group Chat Features in India

InterActiveCorp, New York-based Tinder is launching a new feature, Tinder Social, that allows groups of friends to discover each other and meet up. The company chief told the BBC that this move marked the “first step that we’re taking to make Tinder more social and a little broader when it comes to the types of connections we want to enable”.

To use it, users must first:

  • opt in to the feature within the existing app
  • select who they are going out with from members that have signed up to the service
  • say where they are going
  • say what they plan to do

The next day, the group chat expires, and individual members need to like each other to stay in contact, assuming they have not already swapped other contact details, reports BBC.

Tinder Social is now being rolled out in the U.K., U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and India.

 

Be Sociable, Share!
