Tinder plans a new Video function to allow X-rated clips

Finding love on your phone might just be about to get a little more exciting.

Tinder is planning to add a video function to help singles on their quest for romance.

The company has taken over Wheel, an app that lets users send each other short Snapchat-style video clips.

But while Snapchat lets users send messages between two people, Wheel lets complete strangers connect to create ‘video stories’.

If the same feature is used on Tinder, it could allow users to send X-rated clips – although this has yet to be confirmed by the firm.

Wheel was founded in 2015 under the name Ferris and has been used by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Founders Paul Boukadakis and Chris Shaheen are now set to join the Tinder team in West Hollywood to help them develop a new kind of video messaging.

‘What we were doing with content was all about connecting a young demographic around creating content together,’ Paul Boukadakis told Business Insider.

‘There was a lot of synergy with what we were doing and what they were doing.’

Tinder is one of the world’s most popular dating apps. Every day, 26million matches are created – which leads to 1.5million real-life dates every week.

Mr Boukadakis added that Wheel was made to ‘lower the barrier for entry to content creation’ and ‘make connecting more comfortable.’
