Bumble says it decided to hold the feature back because it would make more sense from an engineering perspective to launch it in the rebuilt app arriving this fall.
That version of the app will support Bumble Bizz, but will also introduce features that let you craft different profiles for dating, friends, and professional networking.
”On Hinge we encourage our members to be authentic with one another because we know that leads to the best connections,” explains Hinge founder and CEO Justin Mc Leod.
“Our profiles already do a great job, but video creates the opportunity for our members to learn about potential matches in a way that simply can’t be captured with still photos and text.” The company will also encourage video adoption, too, by showing Hinge profiles with video to five times more people it says.
Now, Zoosk is pushing the bar even further in terms of video with the launch of live video chat.
The feature, which will be public on Wednesday morning, is designed to help users make connections with people that extend beyond dating.
So it only makes sense that they would adopt video as well, given the growing popularity of the format on social apps like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, as well as the industry’s larger embrace of “Stories” as a means of offering an angle into people’s lives, activities, and interests.“It’s more of a way to storytell, and express yourself beyond a photo,” explains Bumble co-founder CEO Whitney Wolfe, “but in a way that was native to how we in our audience already use social media video.We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel – we wanted to just take what was already working well in other platforms, and give them the opportunity to do that with people they don’t know yet, versus their friends,” she says.“We’re hoping to create an overall experience where people can feel more relaxed being themselves, and more excited to meet and get to know other people.” This feature will push Lively beyond dating to help users just generally meet new people. Top dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and others have also adopted friend-finding features as of late, as they become more like social networks.And Bumble is preparing to launch into professional networking in September, with the debut of Bumble Bizz.
