The popular dating app Tinder has released its biggest update since the invention of the swipe feature, Tinder Explore. Users will now have the ability to easily interact and connect with others who share the same interests through a variety of features.
No matter what your interest is, Tinder Explore helps you find a great match. You can find someone on your level in Gamers, or a partner to split their headphones with Music Lovers. New interests are regularly launched, making it easier than ever to find your perfect match.
There is also now the option to only show profiles that have been Photo Verified. This allows members to self-authenticate through a series of real-time posed selfies. These are then compared with previous photos on your profile for safety and security.
Tinder Explore also allows users to take part in social experiences on the app including Hot Takes, Vibes, and Swipe Night. Almost 80% of users have tried the new features in early testing, making it an exciting way forward.
Hot Takes can currently be joined through Explore. It gives members the opportunity to chat with someone before they match in a short session of the feature’s namesake. As the timer counts down they’ll choose if they want to pair off as a match or let the timer expire to meet someone new.
“A new generation of daters is asking for more from us in the post-Covid world: more ways to have fun and interact with others virtually and more control over who they meet on Tinder,” said Jim Lanzone, CEO of Tinder. “Today’s launch of Explore is a major step in creating a deeper, multi-dimensional, interactive experience for our members that expands the possibilities of Tinder as a platform.”
