Tinder announced it was rolling out a new members-only service earlier this year that lets you avoid swiping through endless profiles by telling you who has already liked you. Now, following a successful trial in a handful of countries, Tinder Gold as it’s now called is available around the world to all iOS users – with an Android launch coming next month.
Tinder Gold’s new ‘Likes You’ feature aims to speed up the matching process by allowing users to find out who swiped right on their profiles. Subscribers to the service will also see a new ‘Likes’ screen, which is laid out in a grid format.
From there you can then swipe left or right on people’s profiles or view the profile in more detail before making a decision. And when you’re going through the profiles, a gold heart will pop up to show that a person has already liked you.
Other advantages include access to five ‘Super Likes’ every day, one ‘Boost’ per month, unlimited likes, plus features like Passport, which lets you change your location, and ‘Rewind’ for any left swipes you might regret.
It could change everything, with Tinder claiming the service has helped users receivethan its regular version, but a subscription does come at a price. In the UK, users will have to pay £4.66 per month to enjoy Tinder Gold’s perks.
Want to sign up? To install the feature, download the app, go into your conversations and on the top, under ‘new matches’, there’s a ‘likes’ tab that should take you to the purchase page – and hopefully one step closer to finding your soul mate.
