Uh-Oh: You Can Now Send GIFs on Tinder
“It’s a match!” Admit it, a little part of you lights up (that is if you’re single and online dating) when those magical words light up your screen on Tinder. Then comes the hard part: Trying to figure out the perfect opening line that’s not 1) too thirsty or 2) too bland. What to do? Tinder’s latest collaboration with Giphy hopes to help you solve that terminal problem. You heard us right. The world’s most popular dating app paired up with the world’s most popular GIF website to now make messaging your potential dates all that much more exciting. We’re talking GIFs, baby.
Directly built into the app is a little blue button that allows you to search through Giphy’s massive GIF database to help you express what you feel via an animated image sent to your match. Never feel at a loss for words again. On their blog, Tinder writes, “With so many options, we promise there’s a GIF for any situation.”
The feature is out now, so you can get started on wowing your matches with your awesome GIF picks. Maybe you’ll even have a hot date lined up in time for V-Day ;)
Check out the video showing off this new feature below.
