Forget Tinder; you may soon find a match through Facebook messenger

If this new feature runs well with the select users, then it will get a wider release soon.

    It is not a secret that Facebook has blatantly copied many features from Snapchat. Now, apparently, the social network giant is planning to add features of another app to its Messenger app.

    Forget Tinder; you may soon find a match through Facebook messenger

    The Facebook Messenger is soon going to have Tinder-like features. For those who are not aware, Tinder is the most popular dating app, which is used by billions across the world. This feature of Messenger was spotted on a Motherboard's reporter phone recently. As reported by NDTV Gadgets, after the outlet looked into the matter, it was confirmed that the feature was almost identical to Tinder's core offering.

    So few users are getting a message that reads, "[Name redacted] and 15 others may want to meet up with you this week". Facebook is reportedly asking people if they would like to meet up with a particular person.

    Users are then shown two options; "No Thanks" and "Yes". If both users tap on the "Yes" option, Facebook will let them know that both of them have shown interest in meeting each other.

    Moreover, Facebook has even confirmed that they are testing this feature, but only with select users. "People often use Facebook to make plans with their friends. So, we're running a very small test in the Facebook app to make that easier. We look forward to hearing people's feedback."

    If this new feature runs well with the select users, then it will get a wider release soon. As of now, it is not known whether Messenger users will have an option to opt out of it. So what do you think of it? Do let us know in the comments?
