Tinder Explore to launch in Singapore by mid-October
This is Tinder’s biggest update yet.
Following hit installments Hot Takes, Vibes and Swipe Night, popular dating app Tinder has rolled out yet another feature — Explore.
Supposedly the biggest update to Tinder since the invention of the original Swipe feature, Explore seeks to give users more control over who they meet by giving them the option to navigate through profiles arranged by interest.
Similar to social media platform Pinterest, Explore sorts potential matches according to topics like “Foodies”, “Gamers”, “Music Lovers” and even “Tattoos”. This provides users with the ability to direct their matching experience themselves.
Tinder also plans on launching new interests on a regular basis so as to keep things engaging and accommodative to all.
Explore will include a “Photo Verification” option — probably the best feature yet — which allows users to self-authenticate through a series of real-time posed selfies, which are compared to existing profile photos using human-assisted AI technology.
To avoid getting catfished, users can choose to only see verified profiles (displayed with a blue check mark) through a dedicated space in Explore.
The CEO of Tinder, Renate Nyborg, said: “A new generation of daters is asking for more from us in the post-COVID-19 world: more ways to have fun and interact with others virtually and more control over who they meet on Tinder.
“The upcoming launch of Explore will be a major step in creating a deeper, multi-dimensional, interactive experience for our members that expands the possibilities of Tinder as a platform.”
Tinder Explore will be available globally by mid-October.
