Bumble’s New Virtual Dating Features will help you date during quarantine


Bumble has released a bundle of its own on the heels of many dating apps adding new features to make dating a bit easier amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A “Virtual Dating” badge which only appears in the profiles of users if they are open to video chatting. You can filter your selection pool after adding this badge to your own profile so you can only show people who are also interested in virtual dating. Best of all, you have the option to hop on a video chat straight away once you match someone you want to know.

Although the “Virtual Date” badge is not free, the company is making sure to donate to the Solidarity Response Fund for WHO-COVID. Bumble already donated $100,000 and another donation for every person who will be adding the badge up to $10,000.

Bumble is the only app that allows users to use the features without having to input their phone number or email. Not only can you chat, call, or video call, but you can also record voice notes and send them to your matches in addition to their new feature to talk to anyone in your country.

It’s important to adapt and come up with new and interesting ways to keep life as normal as it can be as we live through these uncertain times. This will probably mean having your grandparents on the Zoom, having your first date through a video call, and chatting to matches that could be hundreds of miles away.
