With the trend of including more features in the famous apps, Tinder is continuing the trend. Recently, Tinder was found testing a new feature and has finally rolled it out for the users. The new feature, Tinder Loops is set to spice up the dating profile of ever user present on the application. It will allow the users to add a 2-second mini clip of something which will look great on their profile. With this new addition, Tinder is looking to make the dating profiles look genuine and more appealing.
Back in April, Tinder was found testing this feature. The testing phase was limited for the users of Canada and Sweden initially.

Tinder Loops is an interesting addition to the platform it offers. For the loops, Tinder has included a built-in editor for the users. The users have to upload the video from their gallery. For now, Tinder has not included the feature for users to shoot the video within the app rather, they have to use the editor it offers. Using the editor, users can trim down the video uploaded from the gallery. Along with this, Tinder has also increased the number of photos users can post on their profile. Users can now add up to 9 photos in their profile along with the new Loops video.
