IBNS-CMEDIA: Dating app Tinder on Monday said it is launching Share My Date, a new feature that lets users share their date plans directly with friends and loved ones from the app.

Whether planning a coffee date or catching a movie, getting ready for a date is more fun when we can share the excitement with our close circle. In fact, more than half of singles (51%) under 30 already let their friends know the details of their dates, and according to new in-app polling data, one in five Tinder users (18%) share their date plans with their mom.

“At Tinder, we continue to release new features that aim to create a fun, safe, and respectful experience for all,” said Tinder CMO Melissa Hobley. “Discussing plans with friends and family is a time-honored dating ritual. Share My Date streamlines this basic info-sharing so singles can jump right to the exciting part, from figuring out what to wear to prepping conversation topics.”

Share My Date is designed for pals, parents, and peers alike. With one easy link, users can share date information—including location, date, time, and a photo of their match—directly from the app.

They can decide who they want to share their date with and create an unlimited number of dates within the app up to 30 days in advance.

Date plans are also editable, so if plans change at the last minute, users can simply update the info in the app to keep their circle in the know.

Share My Date will roll out across the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, India, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Switzerland, Mexico, Netherlands, Italy, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand in the coming months.
