Facebook, yet again is trying out a feature that looks a lot like copied concept from another social app. Facebook’s new beta-test lets users connect on its Messenger platform, but only if they both accept. It looks a lot like Tinder, except it only connects people who are already friends with each other.
The feature is currently in beta, and the test is limited to a small number of users in parts of Toronto and New Zealand, on both iOS and Android.
“People often use Facebook to make plans with their friends,” a Facebook spokesperson told Motherboard. “So, we’re running a very small test in the Facebook app to make that easier. We look forward to hearing people’s feedback.”
Though the feature is limited right now, but, considering if the beta-run goes well, it wouldn’t be long before the feature is made available to rest of the users worldwide.
