Giving women the choice to initiate conversations with their matches according to their own will and time, Match Group-owned dating app Tinder on Tuesday introduced a new opt-in setting — “My Move” — in India.

The new feature is first rolling out to the iOS users.

“By giving our female users the ability to exclusively send the first message if and when they want to, ‘My Move’ provides women the autonomy to choose how to engage with their matches and empowers them to control their experiences,” Taru Kapoor, General Manager, Tinder India said in a statement.

Up until now, the dating platform allowed both, men and women to make the first move after a mutual match and India is one of the first markets where the company is bringing the “My Move” feature.

The setting was first announced earlier this year and has been in testing since.

Tinder Co-founder and former CEO Sean Rad has asked the Supreme Court of New York to dismiss a $250 million lawsuit filed against him by the Match Group and InterActiveCorp (IAC), the present owners of the dating app.

Earlier in January, Match Group and IAC filed a lawsuit in Manhattan accusing Rad of secretly obtaining confidential information, files and other proprietary information before leaving the company, which violated his employment contract.

“In his motion to dismiss, however, Rad says the contract gave him the right to back up internal emails and hold on to those correspondences even after his tenure at Tinder ended,” The Verge reported on Monday.

“The contract specifically allowed Sean Rad to keep these documents, and IAC and Match are just mad that Sean retained the evidence that will expose their misconduct. We look forward to presenting that evidence to a jury,” the report quoted Rad’s lawyer Orin Snyder as saying. (IANS)
