In the ever-competitive world of dating sites and apps, new features seem to come out often. Now, Tinder is introducing a new feature that offers curated matches, so you can let the dating app do the matchmaking for you. You know how time-consuming swiping can be, so the Tinder Picks feature seems like a good addition to the app. Basically, the Tinder gods see what kind of people you swipe on — such as creative types or travelers — and then they “pick” certain ones for you based on interests you have. I don’t know about you, but anything that limits endless swiping sounds like a win.
“With Picks, we’re offering users a new way to discover the most interesting people on Tinder,” Brian Norgard, Chief Product Officer at Tinder said in a statement shared with Bustle. “Picks delivers a personalized, premium user experience within Tinder Gold that puts a spotlight on unique characteristics that make our users stand out. Just like a friend who introduces you to someone special because you share common interests, Picks makes finding potential matches even simpler, more fun, and more useful. For years, our users have asked for this sort of feature — we couldn’t be happier to deliver.”
Even though the Picks feature sounds amazing, it *does* come with a few catches. So before you go looking for Picks within your Tinder account, here’s what you need to know about the Picks feature.
