Tinder adds a superhero element to their app with the 'Super Like'By Devin Kate Pope
If you thought your Tinder experience was just too ordinary, the company has an update for that. In a blog post on Wednesday, Tinder announced their newest feature "Super Like," a way to let someone on the app know that you really, really like them. It's another easy to remember action: Just swipe up, or tap the blue star below the photo.
According to the blog post, when someone you Super Liked is deciding to swipe right or not, they'll see "a bright blue footer and star icon, highlighting that you Super Liked them."
The matching mechanism stays the same, if a person you swiped right on reciprocates then Tinder will connect you immediately.
But if you're already planning to Super Like with abandon, think again. Each user only gets one Super Like each day, and they don't roll over, so use it with thought. The idea behind this is that Tinder wants the Super Like to be special and for people to actually use it.
Currently, this feature is only for Tinder users in Australia, but the company plans to make it available globally later in the year.
Another change, although not super, is that the icon for the Passport feature is now a blue star in Discovery preferences. To change your location, while on vacation perhaps, visit Settings > Discovery Preferences > Swiping In.
