“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.”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.
But these newer dating apps like Lively, Bumble and Hinge aren’t alone in making video a key feature in their updated user experiences.
Even longtime dating giant is getting into the video game.
In the updated app, users will be able to pick a topic and start chatting with others who are also available to chat.
But unlike with Lively’s profile videos, the chat feature allows users to start their session with their screen blurred.
The company this week announced its plans for a Stories feature, too.
