Please note: as of January 17, 2018, Video will no longer appear in the app as we work on exciting changes to this section. Stay tuned for updates!
Lights … Camera … Bagels! Coffee Meets Bagel is excited to present our newest feature: Video! We created Video to help you connect more authentically with your Bagels.
We know you are focused on making genuine connections, but it’s hard to get a real sense of someone from a few pictures and a short bio. So we created a unique, question-of-the-day Video section to let you see your Bagels’ mannerisms, hear their voice, and get more insight about their personality — before you even meet!
So, how does it work?
At the top of the Video section, you will see Today’s Topic, which will be updated daily.
Scroll through the feed to see the Bagels who have answered Today’s Topic. Tap the video for sound. Click the Bagel’s thumbnail to view their full profile. See someone you like? Use the heart icon to Take their profile (the same way you would in Discover). Don’t see a heart icon? This means the Bagel is seeking a gender other than yours.
You can record your own video by tapping the camcorder icon next to Today’s Topic. Get your answer ready, make sure your face is in the screen, then press and hold the blue button at the bottom of the screen to record yourself.
Once you’re satisfied with your response, just tap “Post” and your video will upload to the feed.
