Tinder tests new 'Picks' feature that saves time by giving you curated recommendations
Swiping your way through prospective mates is the Tinder app's claim to fame. But Tinder says that there are only just so many hours in the day for users to peruse all of the people you can choose from. So Tinder is currently testing a new time saving feature called Picks, which will provide you with the most "swipe-worthy" candidates, and explain why they make your list. Let's say that you have your heart set on a doctor. With Picks, you can save time by skimming through a curated list of healers that are recommended precisely for you based on your occupation, interests, hobbies and other personal characteristics.

Different versions of this new feature are currently being tested on iOS devices in the U.K., Germany, Brazil, France, Canada, Turkey, Mexico, Sweden, Russia and the Netherlands. If you don't see anyone that strikes your fancy, don't fret. A new batch of Picks are disseminated to you every 24 hours.


To view your picks, tap the diamond at the top of your Discovery screen. If you want to tap to see their profiles, swipe on them or send them a "Super Like," you will need to upgrade to a Tinder Gold account. If you do upgrade to the premium service, you can pay to see even more Picks. And with the Passport feature, you'll be able to view Picks from around the world.

As we said, Tinder is currently testing Picks, although not in the U.S. at this time. For now, there is no word on when it will be offered in the states either for testing, or as a permanent feature of the app.

So like in Black Mirror with the dating app episode but not forced?

The Black Mirror episode didn't imply force relationships as well. The relationships that were forced is a visual representation of how the AI of the program works to find you your perfect match

Lol. The ugos are only going to see other ugos. Next thing you know they'll separate their clients by financial status, and skin color.
