Dating app Tinder is testing a new integration — sharing music via Spotify. The purpose of this is to try out a new way to connect users, by allowing them to share music within their chats. The feature, first spotted by the blog MSPowerUser and confirmed by TechCrunch.
As per screenshots of the test feature, users will share tunes by tapping a green music icon located next to the text bar when messaging someone. Tap it and you’ll be able to search for and select a song to send to your match. The feature only lets you share 30-second clips rather than full songs.
Tinder, like its rival Bumble, has offered integration with Spotify’s streaming music service since 2016.
Both apps allow users to connect their Spotify accounts in order to showcase their top artists on their profile. As Tinder explained at the time of launch, music can be a powerful signal in terms of attraction, and plays an important role in terms of getting to know a new connection, as well.
