Tinder would perhaps have a difficult time getting in on the VR craze. So it didn’t. Instead, it pranked CES.

IN THE THICK OF THE CONSUMER ENTERTAINMENT SHOW 

In the thick of the Consumer Entertainment Show on Thursday, the dating app “launched” Tinder VR, a “multiuser VR” experience that is actually just two people wearing a big headset and having a face-to-face conversation.

“We created our multi-user VR headset with the Tinder experience in mind. Real people having a real experience, and like the app, it only works with a double opt-in,” the post reads, concluding with, “Welcome to the future. It’s all about human connection. Give it a try — you might enjoy it.”

TINDER STARTED TO SOUND A BIT LIKE A DUDE
