So Bumble introduced a happy medium: video.Based on user feedback, the social network released new video chat and video call features across its dating, career, and friendship platforms.“We hope this’ll help you confidently connect with matches—and feel safe before deciding whether to take your match offline,” a company blog post said.On Date, Bumble’s matchmaking service where women make the first move, a digital face-to-face can help ease catfishing anxiety, and take a potential relationship to the next level.Plus, since there is no exchange of phone numbers, if things sour quickly, users don’t have to worry that their personal information is being used for revenge.The same is true across other Bumble modes, where sometimes emojis just ain’t enough.After all, nothing says “I have an undying love for all things The Bold Type” quite like seeing the grin on someone’s face as they gush about Jane’s latest article, Sutton’s sartorial elegance, or Kat’s empowering ideas.Calling also lets you skip the back-and-forth texts to set up your first friend date on Bumble BFF.“Now you won’t get stuck trying to decide which ramen place to go to, or which workout class works best for both of your schedules,” the blog said.And when you can’t get away from your desk for a coffee break with a potential mentor or mentee, just count a Bumble Bizz video chat as a professional meetup.You must be matched with someone to start a call; look for the video and phone icons in the top right corner of your conversation screen.True to Bumble’s style, women get the option to call as soon as they match (this can count as their first move); men must wait until a first move has been made.More on Geek.com:AI-Powered ‘Private Detector’ Protects Bumble Users From Dick PicsCows Now Have Their Own Tinder-Style Dating AppMatch App’s Dating Coaches Are Here to Ease Your Nerveslast_img read more
