Music brings people together, it creates common ground between people and resembles a part of their originality. With a new Spotify partnership, dating app Tinder will help you align your music taste with matches.
Spotify swiped right and got a match, with Tinder the ridiculously popular dating app that gets you exploring the world to catch ’em all! Oh wait, no that’s another app. Tinder is the app you’ll know from all the talk of swiping this way or that way and is probably largely responsible for the popularity of “Netflix and chill”.
Spotify’s integration into Tinder will give users an extended insight into the people they’re talking to or deciding on by showing a sneak peek of their favourite music. Spotify are bringing music to Tinder for an aural element that creates another dimension to the person you’re looking at rather than just another bio saying “I want to travel” and the same old party photos that leave you guessing who you’re really supposed to be looking at.
If you choose to integrate Spotify you can now have your own personal ‘Anthem’ for your profile and have your top listened to artist on display. When swiping you’ll be able to see who else loves the same music that you do and play previews of what the other person is into, even if you don’t have a Spotify account.
The Spotify integration is neat but mostly kind of expected, Spotify were part of a similar partnership earlier this year with Bumble, another dating app created by an ex co-founder of Tinder. What sets apart Spotify’s integration into Tinder is your Anthem, described by Spotify:
It’s 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. Spotify is giving all Tinder users, with or without a Spotify account, the unique ability to add an Anthem to their profile.
Getting started with Spotify on Tinder is easy, just follow these steps:
- Search Spotify to find your Anthem if you haven’t connected your Spotify account to Tinder
- Visit your Profile Settings in Tinder to connect your Spotify account (or download Spotify from the App Store or Google Play to create a new account for free)
- Select which of your favourite Spotify artists you’d like to display on your Tinder profile
- Start swiping to see who shares your taste in music
Spotify is available on Tinder starting today in all of the 59 markets where Spotify is available.
