Dating app Bumble is giving users the option to place audio and video calls to their matches without exchanging phone numbers.
Bumble is known to be the “safer” dating app. This is mostly due to the fact that conversations between matches can only be started by women. Today the app is adding yet another feature that will help guarantee users’ safety: audio and video calls within the app.
Giving your number to a stranger is not always the safest move. Yet most Bumble users are looking to move out of the text-only app once the conversation with their matches is established. The truth is that you can only get to know someone so well between photos and chat messages. The new built-in audio and video call feature is just what users were asking for.
It is a double opt-in feature though. That means that both users have to enable the call feature from within the chat before it becomes available.
