An indispensable condition – no nudity
The well-known mobile dating application has expanded its capabilities: now with the help of Tinder, it will be possible not only to correspond with the person you like but also to communicate via video. The feature is called Face to Face, and it is already being tested in 13 countries and regions: in several US states (Virginia, Illinois, Georgia, and Colorado), as well as in Brazil, Australia, Spain, Italy, France, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Peru, and Chile. And also in Taiwan. But not all residents of these countries can use video calls – the function works only in small groups of people. Before opening access to the video chat to absolutely everyone, Tinder is going to evaluate the technical part of Face to Face, as well as the load on the servers.
Video calls appear in Tinder
The function does not work like in other applications. Firstly, both people must give their consent to the video chat. Secondly, before that, they must adopt the rules – not to demonstrate nudity and “sexual content”, to refrain from hate speech, violence, and other illegal actions. The chat itself is a screen, divided into two horizontally – so the participant sees himself and the interlocutor. This was done on purpose: so that users can make sure that they look good and at the same time do not show anything in the background that they would not want to show to other people.
