“You can better showcase your personality now by recording an audio response to prompts or by uploading a video to your Bumble profile. Whether these features are used to show how to properly pronounce our names, share a great story, highlight what we care about, or just get a laugh, we believe they will lead to more genuine matches and better dates,” said Samarpita Samaddar, India Communications Director, Bumble.
