Tinder Loops: How to Add 'Boomerang Style' Video to Profile | Social networks

Tinder lets you add a custom GIF to the platform profile photos. Available on Android and iPhone (iOS), the Tinder Loops feature lets you pick a video from your phone library and edit duration and speed to look like an Instagram "Boomerang-style" clip.

The feature does not allow you to open the camera phone to record a video in real time. Therefore, it must be filmed first, and imported into the app from the gallery. On iPhone, Live Photos are also compatible with the tool. Check out the following tutorial on how to use Tinder Loops to create an avatar GIF and highlight your profile to win more matches in the relationship app.
