Tinder Update Will Allow You To Chat With People Before Matches

A new update coming to Tinder this week will allow users to talk to potential matches, asses and get an idea of who the person is before committing to a match.

The online dating app will get an explore tab similar to that of Instagram that will allow people to find different ways to interact, and as well, meet potential matches. 

In the explorer tab, there activities like Swipe Night, Tinder's interactive video, and a new feature called Hot Takes. This mode occurs from 6PM to midnight local time. 


During this time, daters will answer questions such as, "Which of these is the most pretentious?" and then they will volley in a chat, but will disappear in 30 seconds if no one responds. Right from the screen, participants can like each other and match.

Also, daters, from the explore tab can decide to cycle through possible matches that share their passions or tags they put on their profile. For example, daters can select that they only want to view people who are considered "thrill seekers" because those people listed rock climbing and hiking as a passion.

The idea is to give users more options to navigate people and control things in a way that suits them. Users can always return to Tinders usual mode.

"A new generation of daters is asking for more from us in the post-Covid world: more ways to show off their authentic selves, more ways to have fun and interact with others virtually, and more control over who they meet on Tinder and how they communicate. They also want to date in a less linear fashion, at their own pace, and with the hope that sparks might fly with someone unexpected," CEO Jim Lanzone said.

Tinder will also allow users to upload 16 seconds long videos as part of their profile..with support of up to 9 videos per profile. Lanzone notes that none of these new feature will be locked behind a paywall.

Lanzone went on to describe all of the changes as "the first step in Tinder becoming more of a platform than just an app." He says the changes are one of the attempts to help daters open up a conversation so as to get more context about a person before which will be the deciding factor for a date.
