Tinder today gets multiple enhancements which include a tweak to the matching algorithm with the promises of improving the match experience for users, today’s update also adds job and education information to profiles and brings an improved messaging interface. Apparently these were the two most popular requests from users when they were asked for feedback by Tinder, so it added these features, and made tweaks to the algorithm which it claims is “leading to a significant increase in matches.”
It says that expanded profile features will let users make more informed choices when deciding who they want to swipe right on, all thanks to the addition of job and education detail to profiles which provides users with extra content to consider, and Tinder says this eventually leads to better matches.
Tinder profile cards will now display the most relevant information about potential matches, Smart Profiles will highlight what’s common between the two users, with dynamic text appearing right below the photo. For example if two users went to the same university that information will be front and center.
Messaging interface has been modified to separate new and uncontacted matches from those that users are having ongoing conversations with, this change will simplify the messaging experience and make sure that users are not overwhelmed in the messaging interface.
The updated Tinder app is rolling out today and will be available for download soon via the App Store and the Google Play Store.
