So, you matched with someone on Tinder, and after the first few seconds it feels as if the both of you have nothing much to talk about. It is quite common for many have experienced this situation before.
It is precisely for this reason that Tinder India has come up with the perfect icebreaker for you – Music. Simply said – talking about one’s fav songs or starting a conversation with one’s taste in music is a great way to kickstart a new connection and get to know them.
You could bring up your fav indie-pop artist or talk about that always-LIT Punjabi pop anthem which is on loop on your playlist.
Using Music Mode, which was recently launched in India as well, Tinder members can now choose who they wish to vibe with based on the person’s favourite songs and love or reject them based on their Spotify anthems. Users can now connect with other folks with the same #MusicGoals through its ‘Explore’ feature.
Aahana Dhar, Director, Communication, Tinder India, explains the reason for this feature finding its place in the app: “Music has always been a driving force for young Indians. Tinder members have openly expressed some of their top picks in music over the last year through their bios that have helped spark connections on the app. The 100 Hottest Dating Anthems Spotify Playlist is a reflection of Gen Z’s taste in music in 2021. Now with Music Mode, our members can experience that feeling when you’re at a party and you find out someone else loves the same songs you do. It’s amazing how adding music as another element of discovery elevates the whole experience on Tinder. Songs are deeply personal, and Music Mode is a place to spark something new through music.”.
