A picture is worth a thousand words, but let's not discount the role that music can play in wooing that special someone. That's why Tinder is turning up the volume with Spotify.
Tinder already suggests matches based on swipe preferences, mutual friends, and common interests. But now it's adding another layer to help people make new friends, find hookups, and maybe even fall in love. Tinder users can now broadcast a Spotify-hosted song from their profile, display and listen to their favorite artists in the app, and swipe to see who shares their taste.
"Welcome to a completely new sensory experience on Tinder," the company said in a blog post.
A Spotify account is not necessary to preview other people's top songs or designate your own anthem. Login details, however, do come in handy if you want to see which artists you have in common with a potential match. Visit your Tinder profile settings to connect your Spotify account.
Tinder featuring Spotify is rolling out today in all 59 markets where the streaming music service is available. But you'll have to be 18 years or older to start swiping.
Tinder over the summer launched Tinder Social in Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, the UK, and the US, allowing users to create groups and make plans like a pub crawl, local gig, or house party with like-minded friends.
