TINDER is working on a new feature that lets your friends help you choose a date.
It’s called Swipe Party, letting pals video call and accept or snub potential lovers together.
The feature isn’t actually out yet, but is in development.
It was uncovered as snippets of code by Dutch site GratisDatingTips, and later confirmed by TechCrunch.
Tinder hasn’t fully formed the feature yet, but it’s clear how it works.
Through Swipe Party, Tinder users would be able to invite their friends to a session.
These friends wouldn’t need Tinder accounts themselves – but could join as guests by verifying a name, phone number and date of birth.
So you wouldn’t need to worry about inviting friends in relationships to join you on a swipe-athon.
Guests would be able to see the Tinder swiper’s screen, and even access the camera and microphone.
This would allow friends to vet Tinder users and even swipe for account holders.
And it all works remotely, so none of the users need to be in the same room.
Tinder is also working on a separate video calling function that would allow matches to date virtually.
The Swipe Party feature isn’t publicly available yet.
But Tinder confirmed that it’s in development to TechCrunch.
“We are always exploring features to help our members connect in new, fun ways,” a Tinder spokesperson said.
As with all features-in-testing, it’s possible that Swipe Party never makes it to the app.
