Having recently debuted as a beta in Australia, Tinder is rolling out a group date feature, which means a friend can now join you in some awkward first date small talk in a packed pub on a Tuesday night.
To gain access to the new 'social' feature, users must download the latest version of the app and then choose to 'unlock' Tinder Social. Once you've done that you can invite people to your chat.
While this might be good news for those of you who need a bit of moral support on first dates, there is some concern that a move in this direction means Tinder is becoming an app for orgies, which it definitely isn't, apparently.
"Tinder is seen by many as being a hook-up site," Ben Wood from the CCS Insight consultancy told the BBC.
"So, it needs to be careful. By expanding in this direction, rather than becoming a more interesting social meeting service, it could be perceived as an orgy app."
But the app's founder, Sean Rad has denied anything of the sort, suggesting that Tinder's expansion is strictly intended to create a more sociable experience.
"Tinder Social is designed to make it as easy as possible to plan your night, get out into the real world and meet new people.
"The new feature takes the Tinder experience to a new level, offering our users more ways to expand their social circles and interact with potential matches. We believe it's the ultimate tool for planning your next adventure."
We'll leave the final verdict up to you.
