Tinder launches new service that lets you see who's interested right away

Apps and Software

 A new premium subscription service from the popular dating app Tinder was finally rolled out to its users in the US -- Tinder Gold.  

What’s nice about this member-only service is a feature that lets you see who’s already liked you, before you even make a swipe.  

This means there is no need to wonder and wait anymore if the other person is interested.  It is up to you now if you want to send a message to check if indeed he or she is a potential match.

Tinder Gold and the “Likes You” feature were originally tested in Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico at the end of June.  During that period, the average Tinder Gold user received around 60 percent more matches compared to free Tinder users.

With Tinder Gold, one can browse through the profiles of people who have shown interest in your profile.  This was not possible before when those actually looking for romance were often flooded with “matches” that were simply swiping for the sake of swiping.

In fact, before “Likes You,” the only way Tinder users can have access to everyone that liked them was to swipe right on everyone.

The company says that more than 1.6 billion swipes go down on Tinder each day around the world.  Tinder Chief Product Officer Brian Norgard said Tinder Gold is targeted for people who "want to maximize the time they’re able to spend on the app, and Likes You gives those users a way to swipe, match, and start chatting seamlessly.”

Subscribers to Tinder Gold will enjoy the same fun they have on free Tinder but “with the efficiency and control of being able to see who’s swiped right on them first.”

Currently priced at $4.99 a month, Tinder Gold includes many of the Tinder Plus features, such as Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and other profile controls.  And of course, Likes You.
