Sending pictures on Tinder is one of the most important things to do when you start a conversation with your matches. But what happens if it’s impossible to send pictures on Tinder? Well, this article is about that and other interesting stuff connected to sending pictures on Tinder!
How to send pictures on Tinder?
It’s quite impossible to send pictures on Tinder when you’re logged out. When you’re logged in, you can upload a profile picture and start swiping. After that, if someone liked your profile and you liked theirs too, the conversation is ready to be started (well, this isn’t true for everyone but most people).
When you’re logged out, you can’t connect to Tinder servers or something like that. It’s a normal behavior of dating apps. Some people don’t even have a Facebook account while using the app, which is understandable. So how to send pictures on Tinder when you’re not logged in? You can upload your profile picture from a different device and then use that link to log in to the device you want.
It’s important to know that Tinder doesn’t allow using the same profile picture simultaneously, so if you log in with your phone, use it until it expires (24 hours) and then switch to your tablet or computer where you have another profile picture.

Send videos on Tinder
Sending videos on Tinder is not possible. It might be in the future, but for now, you can’t do that. You can send pictures or just text messages, nothing more. But if your match likes you back, their profile picture will appear at the top of the chat screen until they don’t swipe it away, which means you can see their picture next to the chat.
Send screenshots on Tinder
Yes, but only if your match hasn’t swiped you away. If they did that, then the chat is not active anymore – it means that there was a connection between you and your match and after 5 minutes of inactivity, it will be automatically closed.
Send gifs on Tinder
Yes, as long as they are appropriate. If you use inappropriate ones, your account will be banned after receiving bad reviews every time you send one.
Send pictures of myself on Tinder
It’s not recommended because it could give potential matches an idea of your looks before they decide to swipe right or left for you, making them more superficial and less serious about connection. On the other hand, if you’re looking to hook up and don’t care about spending time with them, there is no problem in sending pictures of yourself.
Send music on Tinder
Not right now, but it might be possible in the future. Tinder allows you to add songs from Youtube, which means that probably in the future, you will be able to send music too.
Send audio on Tinder
Tinder doesn’t allow sending audio messages, but it allows receiving them, which is a bit strange behavior since other apps like Whatsapp and Messenger support both sending and receiving audio messages. They probably didn’t want to create this option because of possible scams with people recording audio and then saying that they can’t send pictures or videos on Tinder, asking for money to make it possible again.
