One of the most popular dating app Tinder has announced that the company will start testing a Global Mode soon that will give the users an option to opt-in for their profiles to show up around the world, regardless of where they live in the world.
The users that opt-in will also be able to view and match with people who live in foreign countries.
Global Mode (free) sounds much similar to Tinder’s paid option called Passport that allows users to select a location and swipe in that area, but with Global Mode, the user’s profile will populate everywhere in the world.
The company plans to test Global mode for some users from the next week but it has plans to roll out the service globally if everything moves around as planned.
In the COVID-19 pandemic, the company allowed users to swipe right to users globally and also introduced a one-on-one video chat feature that will be released soon. The pandemic has made virtual dating a reality meaning it’s not necessary to meet people in person now and the company wants to take benefit of the current scenario.
