They will be similar to Lively's format, photos, and videos. At any point, you can add the blur back.
Sounds like a win-win-win, right?! Although engagement was up - the app saw a record three billion swipes on one day in March - there was less interest in paid-for premium subscriptions. Seeing a video and hearing their voice is, I think, the holy grail in terms of figuring out your attraction.
As of June 28, Lively, too, has stepped datting their dating app game by adding a blurring feature to their videos, which I'll get to in a moment.

Personally, I think it's genius and am surprised it didn't exist before. It'll be like your own mini movies! Though sound will be muted, you can also enable it. Plus, it seems like ddating fun way to get to know your matches better. Anyone who is photo-verified on Bumble will be able to use BumbleVID, and you'll be able to either post them on your profile for everyone to see, or only share them with your matches.
