Tinder has just announced that it is trialling a desktop version of its dating app, Called Tinder Online, as it looks to increase the number of devices the app can be used on. You could swipe through matches from any device.
To access Tinder Online, just visit tinder official websites. This desktop version still force you to sign in or log in with your Facebook account, and it does not include any of Tinder’s revenue features like Super Like or Tinder Boost, for now. The rest of this app’s design relatively the same, although company says that it optimized the desktop version for the messaging. You can view the match’s profile while you chat.
This new online version has all the similar functions of the app, but along with desktop-optimized chatting, and instead of swiping right or left, you just drag the images with your mouse.
Brian Norgard, Head of Product at Tinder, says ‘Tinder Online is just meant to serve users in emerging markets who do not have enough storage on their phone (the app is 128MB on iOS) or a big enough data plan for Tinder’s image-heavy feed. It is also meant to gives Tinder power users the opt to do their swiping and messaging on their desktop, which is far easier on power users than a mobile app’.
Tinder Online isn’t yet available in the UK or US, currently it’s only available in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Italy, Mexico, Indonesia, Philippines, Sweden, and Italy. But a global roll-out may take place if testing is successful. The company is also testing the ability to sign in via a SMS in certain markets. Presumably this desktop version will launch globally soon, but we have reached out to Tinder to confirm.
