Tinder Is *Finally* Going to Let Users See Their Likes… But There’s a Catch
Tinder has been steadily working to improve its dating services since the app first hit the market back in 2012. First, we were gifted with in-app GIFS, then Tinder Boost, which was designed to help you get more matches. Then came LGBTQ+ friendly all-inclusive gender options. Now, the dating app is trying even harder to support its love connections by testing its latest feature, “Likes You,” on Tinder Gold.
Through the “Likes You” feature, users will be able to see potential matches who have already swiped right for your profile, so you can spend less time waiting around to hit a match and more time, you know, actually dating.
Tinder Gold — which the company will first release over the next few days in Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico — will be a paid upgrade tiered above Tinder Plus. In addition to the dream-come-true “Likes You” feature, it will also open up Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five daily Super Likes, and one monthly Boost. The cost is still TBD, but the company plans on offering monthly plans in addition to discounts for users who commit to multi-month packages.
Upon subscribing to Tinder Gold, users will be able to disengage their thumbs from all the constant swiping and dive into a grid of all of their Likes’ profiles. Likes will also be denoted with a gold heart icon while scrolling through Tinder. As for communication, don’t worry — your inbox won’t be flooded with people you’re not interested in getting to know better. Both users will still have to swipe right for each other before any lines of contact open.
