Bumble says it decided to hold the feature back because it would make more sense from an engineering perspective to launch it in the rebuilt app arriving this fall.
That version of the app will support Bumble Bizz, but will also introduce features that let you craft different profiles for dating, friends, and professional networking.
Zoosk says the blur fades over 40 seconds, but you can tap “Add Blur” whenever you like to remain hidden.
“Lively is about creating fun ways to help people connect, not just match,” says Zoosk’s SVP of Product Behzad Behrouzi.
In Lively, users upload photos and videos that are then turned into story collages, which also include transitions and movement.
Again, the idea is that using video can show off someone’s personality much better than static, photo-only profiles.
Jo Jo Belle1, 23, has videos of herself singing on the beach, at a karaoke night and playing in a children’s park.
“We’re hoping to create an overall experience where people can feel more relaxed being themselves, and more excited to meet and get to know other people.” This feature will push Lively beyond dating to help users just generally meet new people. Top dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and others have also adopted friend-finding features as of late, as they become more like social networks.
And Bumble is preparing to launch into professional networking in September, with the debut of Bumble Bizz.
In the updated app, users will be able to pick a topic and start chatting with others who are also available to chat.
But unlike with Lively’s profile videos, the chat feature allows users to start their session with their screen blurred.

Similar to Snapchat and Instagram, Bumble will support short-form videos recorded live or in the past 24 hours, which can be either posted to your profile for all to see, or only shared with matches.
