Tinder is no doubt one of the most used dating apps. With its growing user base, the app makers do not want to leave any stone unturned. To fetch more matches for the users, Tinder has introduced a new feature dubbed as “Smart Photos.” It will allow users to choose their best representative photos for getting more right swipes.
Explaining the idea behind the new algorithm, the app makers claim that it will help boosting the match count. In its press release, Tinder stated in its blog post, “It’s simple: Smart Photos alternates the photo first seen by others when you’re shown on Tinder, notes each response as others swipe on you, and reorders your photos to show your best ones first. In testing, users saw up to a 12 percent increase in matches.”
The algorithm will work in a way to show your best pictures first. It will help in making your profile as charming as possible. It will be automatically testing your photos to analyze which ones work the best for you. The Smart Photos feature will arrange the pictures in a way that will increase the probability of getting a match. The new feature is being rolled out in a phase-wise manner, so you might have to wait for it to show up on your app.
Commenting further on Smart Photos, Tinder says,“We all Swipe Right for different reasons, so everyone on Tinder has a distinct swiping pattern. Smart Photos take into account each individual’s swiping pattern when selecting which of your photos they’ll see first. It’s a system that gets smarter with more input: the more you swipe and the more you’re swiped on, the better the algorithm serves you. Yes, there’s science behind the swipe.”
