Video singles dating
As a contributor to Tom's Guide he's found a happy middle ground writing about apps, mobile gaming and other geekery.
Dating apps are, in their own way, a form of social networking – especially as they expand into new areas like friend-finding or professional networking.
Now, Zoosk is pushing the bar even further in terms of video with the launch of live video chat.
Announced in January, Bumble VID will allow users to share video “stories” on their profile.
Bumble says it decided to hold the feature back because it would make more sense from an engineering perspective to launch it in the rebuilt app arriving this fall.
“Lively is about creating fun ways to help people connect, not just match,” says Zoosk’s SVP of Product Behzad Behrouzi.
“We’re hoping to create an overall experience where people can feel more relaxed being themselves, and more excited to meet and get to know other people.” This feature will push Lively beyond dating to help users just generally meet new people. Top dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and others have also adopted friend-finding features as of late, as they become more like social networks.
