When more individuals are swiping in your region, dating apps like Tinder are more likely to find you a match. In order to identify a possible match, it is crucial that you begin swiping at the appropriate time. Tinder is aware of this, which is why it has adapted the Surge feature from other applications like Uber.
The newly added function, Swipe Surge, which Tinder is now testing in the US, will notify you through push message whenever there is an increase in Tinder usage in your neighbourhood. According to Tinder, new function will enable users to take advantage of actual events like music festivals, parties, etc.
The business mentioned that it tested this exact functionality back in 2016 and found that during a swipe rush, consumers formed 2.5 times more matches. Although I don’t know why it took them so long, I’m happy that it is finally a complete function.
Users will need to turn on push notifications in order to receive the notifications. In a manner similar to using the app’s current Boost feature, the profiles of users taking part in Swipe Surge will instantly move to the front of the queue.
Swipe activity is up to 15 times higher during Swipe Surges, according to Tinder, so when you tap the notification and join the surge, your chances of finding a match increase. It stated, “Activity is up to 15x higher during a Swipe Surge.” Your match-making potential is raised by 250 percent with that many more individuals present, which means you’ll start a fresh conversation with a cutie 33 percent faster.
In a few US cities, iOS users are being used by Tinder to test the Swipe Surge function. Although there isn’t an official statement regarding the introduction of this feature in other regions, I’ll keep looking for more information. So pay attention.
