How to Add a Song to Tinder

Posted on

You can find the perfect match on Tinder only to find that their taste in music is awful.

On the other hand, some users may like your initial profile. But when they hear you hit some weird tunes, they’ll get over it asap.

Fortunately, Tinder understands this very well. That’s why they added the “Anthem” feature a few years ago.

This article will tell you everything you need to know about this feature (and show you how to use it correctly).

What is Tinder Anthem?

When Tinder announced the “Anthem” feature in 2016, they described it as a “completely new sensory experience.” And they really delivered.

The Tinder Anthem is a collaboration between the dating app and Spotify. It allows you to add your favorite song to your profile to represent your musical tastes.

Every time another Tinder user swipes to your profile on their feed, they’ll hear the song. Moreover, you will also be able to listen to their favorite song.

This will help you get a better first impression of a particular profile and vice versa. Maybe someone doesn’t think much of your profile at first glance, but when your song starts hitting, they change their mind.

And the best part is that you don’t really need to have a Spotify account to create an anthem. You only need a Tinder account.

How to Add a Tinder Anthem

If you have a Tinder profile, you can add a Spotify anthem with just a few clicks. Follow these steps:

  1. Launch your Tinder app.
  2. Tap the profile icon at the top left of the screen.
  3. Tap the “Edit Information” button (pencil and paper icon) on the right side of the dashboard.

  5. Press the “Search” button under the “Choose Anthem” section.

    To note: If you already have a Spotify account, you can integrate it with your Tinder and choose a song from your best plays. We’ll talk more about that in the next section.
  6. Tap on the chosen song and it will remain your anthem.

Now, whenever someone comes across your profile on their News Feed, they’ll hear your favorite song.

Integrate your Spotify account

If you want, you can add your Spotify account to your Tinder profile. This will allow you to see the artists you have played the most on your Spotify and easily add them to your anthem.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Launch the Tinder app.
  2. Tap the profile icon at the top left of the screen.
  3. Select “Edit Profile”.
  4. Locate the “My Top Spotify Artists” section at the bottom of the page.
  5. Select “Add Spotify to your profile”.

This will sync your Spotify account with your Tinder account.

If you can’t use the Tinder + Spotify feature, it’s probably not available in your region. But that shouldn’t concern you, because you can still use this option even without an account.

Also, your Spotify or Tinder might not be up to date. If you use different versions of the app, they may have synchronization issues. Check it before continuing.

Turn up the sound

Now that you have your own Tinder anthem, you add a different flavor to the Tinder game. Don’t be surprised to meet some users you might not expect.

Music can touch the soul. And if you’ve selected the perfect vibes, you can just hit the right notes with your potential match.

On the other hand, if you’re a fan of obscure stuff, this will help you match only those who enjoy a similar type of sound.
