The dating app bought Wheel video app and reports suggest that they might add a Snapchat-like feature soon.
Snapchat is a popular photo-sharing app that has, in a short period of time, made exchanging messages, photos and videos fun and exciting. The ideas incorporated by the platform have come across as unique and thus, is positively received by the mass. This could explain why many other, similar platforms, have attempted to integrate Snapchat-like features in the past. Facebook-owned Instagram being the chief of them all. However, it appears like dating app Tinder might be following the former’s footsteps as it recently acquired the LA-based start-up Wheel which essentially allows users to share video stories.
If rumours are to be believed, the latest acquisition could mean that Tinder might be incorporating the Snapchat-like Stories feature soon. The financial details of the acquisition have not be revealed yet.
The latest acquisition might also reveal Tinder’s future plans towards being established as a social app. Recently, the platform launched Tinder Social, a group feature that helps users plan hangouts with friends.
Tinder hasn’t made any official comment as of yet.
