The Tinder experience essentially boils down to either swiping right or swiping left on fellow users but today the hookup app has announced that it’s adding a new kind of swipe to the app and it’s called “Super Like.” To Super Like you don’t swipe left or right instead you swipe up or tap on the new blue star icon when viewing someone’s Tinder’s profile.
How is swiping up on someone any different from swiping right when the idea is just to show your interest in that person? Super Like basically lets you alert potential matches that you are interested in them before they swipe, the person gets a notification that they have received a Super Like from you and then they can decide whether or they want to swipe right on your profile.
Tinder says that it wanted Super Likes to be “really special” while ensuring that everyone can use them so it’s giving Tinder users one Super Like to send each day, Super Likes can’t be banked so don’t think if you don’t use the one day you’ll have two tomorrow.
For now Super Like has only been rolled out in Australia but it will be rolled out globally later this year.
