Bumble BFF will be a standalone app

Bumble is known primarily as a dating app, but you can also swipe for friends on Bumble BFF (there’s also Bumble Bizz for business connections). BFF and Bizz have historically been available on the same app as Bumble Date, but according to a source, that’s going to change.

Bumble has been testing a standalone version of the BFF app in the UK and select Asian markets, a source told Mashable. The standalone app is expected to launch in the U.S. this summer, signaling a deeper investment by the company; BFF represents 15 percent of the app’s monthly active users.

Bumble BFF is still active in the usual Bumble app, for now. Soon, however, those who want to find new friends will be able to do so without downloading a dating app.
