Tinder adds music features powered by Spotify

22 SEP 2016

Dating app Tinder now lets users display details of their music tastes on profiles, with an integration with Spotify adding music into the “swiping experience”.

Even if Tinder users don’t have a Spotify account, they can play previews of other people’s top songs from Tinder profiles. Users can also set an “anthem” for their own profile – “one single track that tells your story”.

If Spotify accounts are connected, users can see the artists they have in common with others.

“Tinder, now powered by Spotify, not only gives you the capability to show your favorite artists and music preferences, but also to pick the anthem that defines you, listen to other people’s anthems and maybe make a little music with someone new,” the dating company said in a blog.

The new feature is set to roll out in all 59 markets where Spotify is available. Tinder has a presence in 196 countries, so not everyone will be able to take advantage of it.

Back in June, Spotify made a similar move when it partnered with another dating app maker, Bumble, “to help people make more meaningful connections with music taste in mind”.
