The online dating app Tinder keeps coming up with new features on its platform that enhance the user experience. Previously, the company brought an ID verification feature to make online dating safer and then it arrived with a Safety Centre for India. In the latest development, the social media platform has now added a new section titled Explore that will let the user find matches based on their interests, location, sexuality and more.
The Explore section is a newly-created hub within the app that will host completely new, interactive ways to use Tinder. It will give more control to users over who they meet by giving them the option to navigate through profiles arranged by interest, while also allowing them to access a growing list of exclusive social experiences, such as Hot Takes, Vibes and Swipe Night and many more to follow. With the addition of a new section, Tinder aims to provide new social experiences and will evolve its discovery options so members can find someone new for whatever they’re into.
Jim Lanzone, CEO of Tinder said, “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, 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.”
The members can now easily look or discover their potential matches by their interests, activity, age, and more. New interests will launch on a regular basis so members can find someone new for whatever they’re into.
In addition to this, the member would only see a photo verified profile which will be a part of the Trust & Safety feature on Tinder. This will allow users to self verify through a series of real-time posed selfies, which are compared to existing profile photos using human-assisted AI technology. The profile which has the verified photos will bear a blue checkmark and for the first time members can choose to only see Photo Verified profiles through a dedicated space in Explore.
The previously announced Swipe Night feature will also be accessible in the Explore Section from November. In addition to this, the recently announced Hot Takes will also be part of Explore now. Not only this it will also include Vibed which is basically a weekly event that allows members to express their opinions on everything on the online dating app.
According to Tinder it has started rolling out Explore Section features for members in all major English-speaking countries and is expected to be available around the world by mid-October.
