Tinder Tests New Global Matching Mode

Tinder is reportedly working on a new ‘Global Mode’ that would allow users to quickly see available profiles from all over the world.

A testing screenshot was uncovered by reliable reverse engineer Jane Manchung Wong which showed a new user interface giving daters the chance to see global or local matches.

There are no other details about this potential update at the moment, but the dating app already runs a premium feature for users to transport themselves anywhere in the world.

‘Passport’ lets members choose which country and city they want to meet people from. However, ‘Global Mode’ may just show random profile cards instead of from a specific area.

Text on the screenshot indicates it could be benfitial when users have swiped through everyone in their area. This would be particularly important in the current climate as a significant portion of the world are being forced to stay at home.

Tinder had made ‘Passport’ available for all free users until 30th April so they could share their experiences and support each other during the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week it released a video for its Indian audience to show them how they could use technology and the Tinder app to stay connected with matches, friends and family.
