Will Grindr’s Newest Features Lead to Arguments and Chaos?

What could possibly go wrong with audio messages??

If you woke up this morning and noticed that some of your Grindr chats were highlighted light blue, you weren’t the only one. The infamous gay dating app has rolled out three new features you’ll get with their latest update.

Profiles you’ve recently spoken to will be highlighted blue on the grid, so you know who you’ve actually been chatting with. In addition, Grindr has also added the ability to let users send each other audio messages. (Although according to the app store, this feature has yet to be release worldwide.) 

One can’t help but think of all the trolling and arguments that these new features will enable...

Instead of angry chats, we’ll get angry calls. Oh joy!

But it might not be all bad! We’ll now have a newer, stealthier way of attempting to catch catfishers. (Does this man’s voice seem to match the nudes that he sent to me?)

Lastly, read receipts are now available for chats that you’ve sent. You’ll now be able to see if a guy really hasn’t read your message yet, or if he actually just isn’t interested. Your insecure ass can whine and yell—yes, literally yell—audio messages, asking him why he responding to your messages.

So get excited, boys! I’m predicting Grindr is going to get a whole lot messier...(Let’s all revel in the chaos and dick pics!)
