Facebook couples: Tinder’s new rival arrives in SpainFacebook Couples is the new social network service for flirting and meeting new people, which will compete with Tinder and is now available in Spain.
This function now reaches all users since it has been activated globally for all those who have a profile on this social network.
Video calls come to Tinder
At a time when many of the normal places to meet people, such as bars, concerts or parties, are under the scrutiny of many governments, being able to use these apps seems more useful than ever.
In Tinder they know this, but they also know that it can be a problem if they do not control the development of the implementation of this function well.

Even so, if someone starts a video call but we do not want to answer, we can hang up as we would with a conventional phone call.
Dating apps already had countless downloads in the months prior to the pandemic, but it seems that the current situation is only going to enhance the use of it, especially among the youngest.
