New Delhi: Tinder’s team is making its Passport feature free for all users through April 30th as they recognised that daters might want to connect with people abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the company, in this challenging time, they see Tinder members finding new ways to connect. Many current Tinder subscribers are even reaching out across the world, using the Passport feature, to find solidarity with matches hundreds of miles away.
Passport allows people to pay to swipe abroad wherever they want. It usually costs money to access through either Tinder Gold or Tinder Plus.
With Passport, users can search by city or drop a pin anywhere on the map to start swiping there. The company says it hopes “you use the Passport feature to virtually transport yourself out of self-quarantine to anywhere in the world.”
Separately, Match is also launching a live-streaming feature called Live on its Plenty of Fish service. The live-streaming feature lets daters stream live, like they would on most other social platforms. People can search for streams nearby and leave comments as they watch, which can eventually be moved to private messages.
