Dating app Hinge came out with a new audio feature where you can hear your date's voice & the internet has opinions

November 10, 2021

WHEN looking for a date online, singletons typically base their “swipes” off the limited photos and short answers that users provide on their profiles.

But a new audio feature on the popular dating app Hinge lets members actually listen to their counterparts share information about themselves; and the internet is thoroughly entertained.


Hinge's new audio feature, which was released this October, allows users to answer the "getting to know you" prompt with a voice note instead of just text.

Common prompts include: "Worst Idea I've ever had," "One thing I cannot live without," "A goal of mine," and "How to pronounce my name."

One user, who goes by @melissamerk on TikTok, couldn't help but laugh at some of the cringe voice notes she came across.

She posted a TikTok with the caption, "What a time to be alive #hinge."

Shaking her head, she claimed: "I was going to delete hinge but then they came out with the audio feature.."

A series of Hinge profiles and the voice notes accompanying each then flashed on the screen.

The first profile had the prompt: "I'm weirdly attracted to." The voice note that answered the question is less than a second long, with a man creepily saying: "You."

In response to "Unusual skill?" another man's voice note played: "Well, I'm surprisingly good at driving with my knees."

To answer the prompt asking for "An overshare," a brave soul revealed: "I was feeling super stressed so I went to the doctor and she gave me some pills for anxiety so I tried them out. And I ended up adopting six pet rats."

A fourth guy thought it important to teach other Hingers how to pronounce his awfully complex name. In a monotone voice, he said: "Daniel. Like the name Daniel. Uh, to use it in a sentence: 'Hey that cool guy Daniel over there.'"

And lastly, replying to the prompt "My simple pleasures," one man shared what we can all agree on: "Having a bath after a long day is literally heaven."

The TikTok clip sent viewers howling.

"The six pet rats guy is marriage material," commented one user.

"This really helps you, screen guys, quickly," chimed another.

"Only Daniel understood the assignment," added a third.

And lastly, one TikToker had the hilarious observation: "Why do they all sound like they're sitting on the floor sad and recording these after like eight beers?"
