If you get anxious at the thought of composing a message to a Tinder match, the app’s latest update should put a smile on your face.

The company has teamed up with Giphy to introduce the option of sending GIFs in your conversations. You can browse or search through millions of animations for just the right one to break the ice.

If you prefer using emoji to express yourself, you’ll be happy to know that they’ll now appear larger than before.

There are a couple more new features to check out as well. You can now ‘Like’ incoming Tinder messages by tapping the green heart that appears next to them.

The app now also lets you upload profile photos directly from your camera roll, instead of restricting you to images from your Facebook account.

The new features are now live in Tinder’s iOS app. The company hasn’t said when they’ll be coming to Android. We’ve contacted Tinder to find out and will update this post when we hear back.
