Hinge has launched two new features, “Video Prompts” and “Prompt Polls,” allowing users to answer video-specific prompts as well as publish polls with three unique answers for potential matches to choose from.
The announcement of the two new features comes a year after Hinge rolled out “Voice Prompts,” a voice recording feature that gives users a way to hear a potential match’s voice. Video prompts and polls on Hinge profiles take these online interactions a step further, giving daters more ways to make connections.
The dating app is the first to offer users a way to publish polls, the company claims. However, we reported last month that Bumble had begun experimenting with polls, as well.
With the addition of “Prompt Polls,” Hinge hopes that daters can have better conversations by asking potential matches questions they want to know about them.
Users can select from 21 poll prompts such as, “If we won the lottery, let’s spend it on,” “A dream home must include,” and “Two truths and a lie,” among other prompts that aim to spark a connection. After selecting a prompt, the user can type three answers for people to pick.
