Match’s New Video Chat Feature Helps Users Find Love in the Time of COVID-19

2 min read

Is social distancing killing your online dating game? Miss the flirty, awkward, often uncomfortable feeling that comes with an in-person rendezvous? Match has your back with Vibe Check, a new live video feature that lets users chat right from the app.

Once you’ve connected and started a conversation with someone, a video icon will appear at the bottom of your messages; after agreeing to the terms and conditions, you may request a Vibe Check. The other person can join immediately, or decline if they’re busy or just not feeling it. Remember to enable push notifications so you don’t miss a Vibe Check invite.

The function is essentially just an in-app video platform, but it certainly lends a level of intimacy to the otherwise post-apocalyptic feeling of life in lockdown. Facebook’s New Product Experimentation Team recently introduced a similar service aimed at long-distance couples: Tuned provides a “private space where you and your significant other can just be yourselves” via text, voice memos, photos, music, and videos.

“All the communication is done through Match, so you can see if your personalities vibe before exchanging phone numbers or other personal information,” according to a company blog post. As with most social networking platforms, users can report members who break any rules during Vibe Check (i.e. nudity, harassment, violence, etc.); that person will subsequently be blocked from contacting you.

“So, what are you waiting for? Take your dating life out of quarantine by trying Vibe Check today,” Match said. The feature is available only in the latest version of the Match app for iOS and Android.
