Tinder Online, the desktop version of Tinder app, will help dispel boredom at work or school.
Instead of swiping left or right as users do on the mobile version, Tinder Online users will have to drag images down using their mouse.
There are other differences between Tinder on mobile and Tinder Online. Paid-for Tinder functions like Superlike and Boost are not yet accessible on the desktop version. Additionally, Tinder claims that its new desktop version allows users to chat with other potential matches whilst viewing their profiles, allowing for a more seamless browse.
Apart from that, not much else is different; users will still have to sign in to Tinder Online via Facebook.
While Tinder Online presents a welcome distraction to bored office workers and students the world over, the desktop version was really created for those living in developing markets where the 4G connectivity via mobile phones isn’t great.
Tinder Online is currently being tested out in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, Italy, and Sweden.
The dating app is also currently testing out a version in which users can log into Tinder Online using their respective mobile numbers instead, so those without a Facebook account can also get on Tinder.
