The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot, even for online dating. This has resulted in a number of features that make virtual dating more interactive and Bumble is improving its new features like Night In, video notes, and 360-degree video backgrounds.
‘Night In’ function
The new Night In feature is a virtual space in the dating app where two people can play interactive games in one-on-one video chats (Think: Party in the House). This will allow users to do interesting things and get to know each other better before going on a real date.
How does it work?
If two people have coincided, they will have the option to make use of the night function by clicking on the icon within the chat. When chosen, both parties will receive notifications of the date of their video. Once they are in the virtual game room, they will be introduced to the game and the rules.
The feature is expected to get more gameplay options and experiences soon.
360 degree video notes and video backgrounds
In addition, Bumble has also introduced the video notes, which will be added to the existing audio notes in the application. Video notes will allow daters to send each other short videos to interact in a better way. Users can also add any of five Snapchat Lenses including Atmosphere, Reactions, and Fox Ears / Tail.
Bumble has introduced new 360-degree video backgrounds, which will make online dating a bit more realistic.
