For those who’ve ever been 10 minutes into a date and realised they’re totally incompatible with the person opposite them but it’s too late to get up and leave, then Hinge could be the dating app you’re looking for.
Hinge – from today – has a Video Prompts feature which gives daters a chance to gauge their compatibility with a match before committing to actually meeting IRL by chatting online with potential dates first.
Coined as a ‘virtual vibe check,’ the benefits of this new pre-date video chat are endless:
Video Prompts – the new feature from Hinge – appears during video dating and shows conversation starters on screen to encourage you to share more of your personality. Each theme has been tested by the experts at Hinge Labs to ensure the most fruitful answers come out of the session – which can be as short or as long as preferred.
Users select from one of eight unique themes and once a theme is picked, the collection has five Prompts for the daters to ask each other.
How the Hinge Video Prompts feature came about
Throughout the COVID pandemic, video dates emerged as a new way for singles to test the waters and take part in a ‘virtual vibe check’ before committing to meeting a match IRL.
That’s why Hinge is launching Video Prompts — the ability to have a video chat with someone you’ve met on the app, because it’s a way of ‘virtually’ meeting someone and confirming if you’re compatible.
Video Prompts shows conversation starters on screen to encourage you to share more of your personality. You select from one of eight themes and once a theme is picked, the collection has five Prompts for the daters to ask each other. From warming up the conversation with basics about each other to interactive Prompts where you go on a mini scavenger hunt at home, Video Prompts brings you closer together with your date by discussing topics you might not have discussed on your own.
