However in a bid to give women more control over their matches, it seems that Tinder in India is testing out extra controls for women. One of those features is called “My Move”, in which even if both users have matched with each other, the woman is the one that has to start the conversation, meaning that they essentially have a second chance to decide whether or not they want to pursue a conversation with their match.
Speaking to Reuters, Taru Kapoor, General Manager for Tinder owner Match Group (MTCH.O) in India said, “We’re a platform based on mutual respect, consent, and choice. (Users) can shape their own destiny, connect with people they feel comfortable with and at all points of time, feel in control. Our users have the autonomy, especially women have the autonomy, on how to be engaged, to be empowered, to control their experience.”
The feature will only be available in India at first where it will be tested, but it is expected that it will eventually make its way to other markets. Note that this feature isn’t exactly pioneered by Tinder as before this, dating app Bumble offered up similar features as well.
