As if online dating wasn't already awkward enough, Bumble has found a way to make it even more uncomfortable! In the best way, of course.


Bumble just introduced in-app video chat and voice call across all its platforms, including the regular Bumble app, Date, Bizz, and BFF modes. You can only make or receive a call after you've matched with someone.

A video icon and phone icon will appear in the top right-hand corner of your conversation screen. Women are able to call as soon as they match with someone, while men get the option to call only after a first move has been made.

Here's how it works

It's a quicker and a safer way to get to know someone a bit before meeting up in person.
