The Best (And Worst) Hinge Voice Prompts to Inspire Your Own

It all hinges on how hot your voice is.

Hinge – leader, innovator, disruptor in the dating app space – has done it again. You thought their witty conversation starters were clever and groundbreaking enough, but there’s a new feature in town: Hinge voice prompts.

You think you’re busy these days? Imagine being on Tinder’s innovation team.

This new ingredient to the dating app experience might just shake up the whole game. You can now answer a prompt with your silky, smooth vocal chords. Some examples of Hinge voice prompts you can respond to include:

  • How to pronounce my name
  • I won’t shut up about…
  • A shower thought I had recently…
  • Do you agree or disagree that…

We know what you’re thinking: cringe. But before you delete the dating app that was designed to be deleted, give it a chance. If nothing else, we found some funny Hinge voice prompts to laugh at.

The Best, Worst, and Funniest Hinge Voice Prompts on TikTok

Fortunately, the recent surge of Hinge voice prompt TikToks has allowed even those in relationships to reap the benefits of this feature. Thanks for the laughs, voice prompts of TikTok.

1. Best: Funny Hinge Voice Prompt

Based on our thorough analysis, here is the overarching takeaway about voice prompts: they’ve gotta be funny. This doesn’t mean you have to be Aziz Ansari, but enter the recording with the intention of being lighthearted and fun.

Show the ladies and gentleman what it would be like having a coupla drinks with you!

2. Worst: Why So Serious?

Nobody cares to hear your life story (yet). Nobody wants to hear about your job (unless you clean crime scenes or something cool like that). Nobody wants to hear you list off all of the ideal characteristics you want in a partner, or weird details of your last relationship. You’re actually just describing a dog, anyway.

Being too serious with a Hinge prompt will most certainly make prospects cringe. And potentially expose your voice prompt to judgment on TikTok. Tread carefully.

3. Best: Get Friends Involved

If you’re feeling a bit in your head while recording a voice prompt, having a friend in the background can help make something that’s unnatural sound, well, *more* natural.

There’s just something about someone talking to themselves that has the power to give potential prospects the ick.

4. Worst: Voice Prompt Creep

We would hope this one would go without saying, but TikTok has in fact proved otherwise.

Do us all a favor and leave your kinks off the apps. Talking about the ‘things you want to do’ to a prospective partner over Hinge voice prompts is next-level weirdo behavior.

5. Best: A Stellar Celebrity Impression

Perhaps the most organic voice prompt option is “my best celebrity impression.” This one inherently warrants the use of your voice. And it shows that you don’t take yourself too seriously.

Borat, Shrek, and Jennifer Coolidge are about to get a lot of air time. And even if you opt for a more serious celebrity impersonation, it’s still funny. Bonus points if you intro your celebrity impression with a voice that rivals Tom Hardy.

6. Worst: Singing

For the most part, don’t sing. The stupid song you made up about being single and always being the third wheel isn’t charming, it’s annoying. And your bad rendition of Believe by Cher? Leave it to karaoke night, fellas.

Yes, we have some musicians in the mix. If you are an actual singer or have some pent-up talents, you are allowed to sing, especially since a new partner will probably hear a lot of this if they do end up dating you.

PLSSS HE CUAGHT ON AND CHANGE THE PROMPT 😭😭😭😭😭 SHOULD I MATCH HIM HAHAHAHAHAHAH #hinge #nyc #nycdating #voiceprompts

7. Best: Music Or Recordings

TikTok has opened up a new world of opportunity for us to discover some very creative individuals.

Using a song or movie one-liner to pepper into your profile is an easy way to add some flavor without incriminating yourself.

I was already told it “enhanced” the scrolling experience 💀 #hinge

8. Worst: The Gross Out

We suppose some lady out there might listen to this Hinge voice prompt and laugh hysterically, knowing that she’s found her match. But we’d venture to say that most folks don’t want to start off a relationship with potty talk.

Leave the bathroom talk for at least date number five. Whenever the first fart of the relationship happens.

9. Best: Name Pronunciation

This one’s a great opportunity to show off your voice and teach others how to pronounce your name. Chances are your matches were nervous about mispronouncing it anyways.

And if your name is Matt? Well, this is your chance to show off your humor!

Tips for Making Great Hinge Voice Prompts

Ready to try it yourself? Here are three tips we swear by.

1. Don’t overthink it.

Voice prompts aren’t for the shy or faint of heart.  If you’re in your head about leaving a voice prompt, it’s already too late. Like executing a poorly timed joke or casually “running into” your ex at their gym, trying too hard is an automatic fail. People can sniff out your unease. Or is that your sweaty gym bag?

Choose to follow a prompt that you can naturally respond to. For example, if Adultescence had a Hinge profile, we would go with the “how to pronounce my name” prompt.

“It’s Adultescence, like Adolescence with Adult in front of it. Not ‘Adult Scene.’ That would be a very different set of content. Don’t @ us about starting an OnlyFans.”

2. Make sure you have a hot voice.

A person’s voice is a huge driver (or ruiner) of physical attraction. It’s all too easy to create a mental audio of how James with the gym mirror selfies will sound whispering sweet nothings to you over pasta…until you’re hit with the cold, hard truth of how he pronounces ‘calamari.’ Ideally not in the bedroom.

Or, you could be an average-looking Joe with the sexiest voice around. Now those dudes have an outlet to make more of their matches swoon. Bonus points for hot accents.

So, if you’re proud of your voice, use it to your advantage. But if you’re not, save it for the date when your prospective partner can appreciate your personality. And skip the calamari.

3. Keep it short, sweet and sexy.

The prompts allow for 30 seconds of audio, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should use it all. In fact, do the opposite. Say what you need to say in as little time as possible, and save the rest for voice notes.

(Note: yes, there’s a difference. Voice prompts show up on your profile for all to see, while voice notes are messages you send in a DM to a match.)

After all, nobody likes the guy who steamrolls the dinner conversation. Hinge Voice Prompts

Whether you decide to use them or not, Hinge voice prompts are here to shake up the dating app game. Get on board the right way, and you might just make your matches explode. Fire puns encouraged.
