Tinder Introduces ‘Vibes’ To Help Users Express Themselves

Tinder has introduced its new ‘Vibes’ feature, which will help users express their opinions and gauge compatibility with potential matches.

The events are built on other in-app events, such as Swipe Night and Swipe Surge, allowing members to stand a better chance of finding the right matches quicker.

Early testing data shows that after members “vibe” once, they come back again, leading to more likes and matches across the board.

Users are alerted when Vibes has started in their area via push notification or when they open the app. Participants will then answer a series of questions, from personality traits to pop culture, to give others more insights into whether they’ll be compatible or not.

Vibes will be displayed on member profiles for 72 hours, and matches can see each other’s responses within the chat window, helping them start the conversation with more context.

Udi Milo, VP of Product at Tinder, said in a statement: “Your Tinder profile should be an authentic representation of yourself, and that often changes as you explore who you are, what you want and what’s happening around you.

“We built Vibes to help make profiles as dynamic as our members while giving them more to match on along the way. This is the first of many things we’re creating for the Tinder community this year so they can show off more of their personalities on the app.” 

Vibes will be rolled out to Tinder’s global community towards the end of May.
