Not everyone has time to keep swiping left or right on Tinder all day long, but that doesn’t mean they want to miss out on that big opportunity of meeting someone right for them. But how can you not spend time playing the game and still get to meet your matches?
Thanks to Tinder’s new feature, you can have your friends help you scan the service for love. Does your girl friend also spend time on the app looking for digital affection? Tinder will now allow them to help you search for that perfect match.
According to the service’s description, the new feature – which is still in beta mode – enables the app’s users to play matchmaker on Tinder. A small group of testers now have the option to share a profile they come across during their swiping through potential matches.
When tapping the ‘share’ icon, the user will be able to send a temporary link via text to a friend. If that friend accesses the link within 72 hours, they get the ability to swipe on the profile that was shared.
If you swipe right on a person’s profile based on a recommendation you were sent, then Tinder might add your profile to the recommended list of your interest, as well.
Even though Tinder isn’t saying that your name will automatically pop on that person’s screen, it makes sense that this recommendation engine has been created to help people find their match more quickly with the assistance of suggestions from friends.
Otherwise, it doesn’t matter how you found that interesting person if they never see you on their app among the ton of Tinder users that also live in the area. Just like with any other matches, this won’t become official until the other person also indicates an interest in you,
By letting users play matchmaker, Tinder hopes to increase its users interest in spending time on the app. It’s a new feature, definitely able to generate some renewed spark in Tinder’s ability to find you a good match.
If you’re already on Tinder and this whole thing has got you concerned that users will now be able to share your profile with anyone, don’t get your panties in a bunch just yet.
As explained by Business Insider, users were already doing that anyway with the help of screenshots. However, Tinder has also given you the possibility of opting out of the sharing feature via the app’s settings menu, but how else is love going to come calling if you do that?
