Tumblr now tells you what to talk about in chats because you’re weird and awkward

Written by Jaivik Shah

An update to Tumblr has hit iOS devices, and suggests the company knows its users are a bit nervous approaching one another on its platform.

When you message someone for the first time, Tumblr now suggests some conversation starters. It gives you a bit of insight on what that account typically discusses, often in hashtag form in case you need to look it up.

The web version still opens up a plain chat window that simply shows who’s in the conversation.

It’s the first big update to Tumblr chats since they were introduced five months ago, which also allows posts to be sent as messages.

As always, the update is available now, so give it a shot if you’re into chatting on Tumblr.
