Never know what to say in your first Tinder message to someone? Have no fear — your Bitmoji is here.

The dating app announced Tuesday that it’s beginning to roll out Bitmoji integration to users in the United States and Canada. And while this update won’t stop anyone from swiping left on you, it’s at least guaranteed to make your messages a bit more colorful.

With the change, Tinder users who are also on Snapchat can connect the two apps in order to bring their Bitmoji stickers to Tinder’s in-app chat.

To take advantage of the new feature, all you have to do is tap the new green Bitmoji icon next to the chat box and then connect the app with your Snapchat account.

Don’t worry, your matches won’t see your Snapchat handle — just your Bitmoji avatar.

Tinder is one of the first third-party apps to integrate Snapchat features into its own app via Snap Kit, the developer platform Snap launched last month. And though Bitmoji had previously been available to outside apps via its keyboard extension, the new platform now allows for app makers to integrate the feature directly into their apps.

Tinder says it’s still just testing the feature, and it’s not clear when or if it may roll out to users in other countries. But it’s not difficult to see why the feature is appealing to the dating app, whose users are fond of coming up with creative ways to find love.
