Bumble Stealing Tinder’s Buzz With Musical Matches


If you consider taste in music an important quality in a potential life partner, then listen up – fast-growing dating app Bumble is joining matchmaking forces with Spotify in a bid to match users based on their musical preferences. Listen, Bang, Love.

Distinguishing Bumble from Tinder and other dating apps is the rule that only females can send the first message, and if no message has been sent after 24 hours, a match will disappear. It’s like a spring cleaning service for your unused winter stockpile.

Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe says music makes up a part of our identity, allowing us to form cultural bonds with others. “Music says a lot about who we are as people and connecting culturally can serve a foundation for creating meaningful relationships,” she said. 

Spotify said the new musical feature will make for an easy conversation starter, so if your Tinder matches have gone quiet, maybe it’s time to turn up the volume and cash in on the Spotify and Bumble buzz.
