Tinder has *finally* made the upgrade you've all been waiting for: The dating app has officially launched an online platform in Australia, complete with office-friendly features so that you can work and lurk at the same time. 2017, what a time to be alive!
Tinder Online has officially been rolled out for users across the globe, following a lengthy test phase in select countries including Argentina, Mexico and Sweden.
The website functions the same as the app, and once you log in the features are essentially identical. Swipe right, swipe left, read some weird bios from dudes you went to high school with - all the same old bits and bobs! There is one small difference, however, to aid users who plan on swiping during work hours.
There is a 'work mode' function, which is enabled when the user clicks on a small suitcase icon in the top right-hand corner. When clicked, the site takes you to a fake Google Doc template, with big headings like "Meeting Notes" and "Meeting Agenda." Plus, it comes with these super-fun graphs that will look totally real and not-at-all made up when your boss strolls on by...
...just don't let your boss get too close to your screen. Or, you know, maybe just Tinder on your own time?
Back in March, the company explained there were several reasons for the new online version of the popular app.
"Let’s face it: not all places on earth have 4G," they wrote on their blog. "Some people can’t get bundled services, while others don’t have enough memory to support Tinder on their mobile phones. For all those who’ve ever been stuck in a lecture hall or had to endure an eight-hour workday without access to Tinder—this is for you."
We guess this endless access to Tinder gives us all literally no excuse to be dateless. Happy desktop-dating, friends, you've got this...
