And they’re meant to be a combination of photos and videos, similar to what’s available on Lively.
Plus, you can narrate the content if you’d like, to describe the imagery you’re showing.
(The videos imported from social networks can be longer than 30 seconds, Hinge notes.) Instead, Hinge believes support for videos will allow members to better show who they really are, by sharing fun or memorable moments and activities from their lives.
This continues the dating service’s larger mission of helping users find relationships, not casual encounters.
Now, Zoosk is pushing the bar even further in terms of video with the launch of live video chat.
Hinge, for example, will now allow users to augment their user profiles on the service with video.
Meanwhile, Zoosk’s newer product Lively is hoping to capitalize on video to bring more people to its app.
Launched last summer as a product from the company’s R&D group, Zoosk Labs, Lively had adopted video from the get-go.
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.
