Tinder and Spotify – better together
Tinder and Spotify have a lot in common: they’re both market-leading apps, they’ve both conquered their respective industries, and they’re both popular with young people looking to have fun. So, the obvious question is: why don’t they work together? The answer is that they do work together – and have done for years. Although, given the lack of fanfare about it, you can be forgiven for not realising it.

Tinder, the star performer in Match Group’s impressive roster of online dating platforms, has always been eager to connect with Spotify. It offers integration with the music streaming market leader, letting ‘casual daters’ showcase their favourite artists on their Tinder profile. The reason for that is pretty obvious – music is one of the passions that help connect romantic partners, and offers an easy ice breaker. Tinder has also been a big Spotify user itself, curating playlists on the platform. Now, the two companies are moving forward in their relationship.
Tinder has a solid chat platform, and it’s working to integrate Spotify functionality into it, letting users send each other snippets of their favourite song. Spotify is the only music service Tinder is allowing in-app, and at the moment, it’s a trial partnership that is only being run in some locations.
According to Tinder, their collaborations with Spotify have always proved popular with the public, and driven business. A spokesperson added: “Users love connecting over shared tastes in music. In fact, users who update their ‘Anthem’ are most likely to start a conversation via Feed. With this in mind, we’re testing the ability to share music with a match while chatting on Tinder.”
