Tinder has just launched a new partnership with Spotify to let singles connect over their shared taste in music.
The feature introduces Spotify to the dating platform, enabling Tinder users to link their Spotify account to their dating profile.
Singles can show their top artists, see what music they have in common with other users, as well as displaying their “Anthem”.
As Tinder explains in a blog post, your “anthem” is: “That one single track that tells your story. That one song you can’t get out of your head. Where the lyrics of your life meet the rhythm of your soul. It may change as you change, but at any given time, you have an anthem–and the world is waiting to hear it.”
Starting today, all users of Tinder can now play previews of other people’s top songs via Spotify from their profile.
And for those users who have their accounts connected, Tinder has added music taste into the matching system, showing singles which artists they have in common.
Rival dating app Happn formed their own partnership with Spotify last year, also letting singles hook-up their streaming account to their dating profile.
The main point of difference between the two features are with Tinder’s “anthem” idea, and that Happn lets singles send tracks to their matches in the chat function.
To set up the feature, you just visit the Profile Settings in Tinder to connect with Spotify, select which artists you want to add to your profile, and choose your “Tinder Anthem”.
The feature has been rolled out in all 59 markets where Spotify is available.
