Newest Tinder update adds Instagram integration and common friends
Tinder, the popular free-to-use mobile dating application, is getting an update soon that adds a few nice additions to the app. The update, which is rolling out soon to the Google Play Store, will let you integrate your Instagram account into your Tinder profile. To integrate, simply open the Tinder app, head on over to your profile, and connect it to your Instagram account with a single tap. Once you’re finished, people who check out your profile will see a list of your most recent posts.
From the Tinder team:
Now there’s no need to put your Instagram handle in your profile description to tell your story (we got sick of having to do that, too). And in case you were wondering, Tinder won’t post anything to Instagram on your behalf or alter your existing Instagram privacy settings.
Also included in the update is a feature called Common Connections. This addition will show you mutual friends and friends of friends you have in common with your potential matches. Moreover, Tinder will soon begin to show you expanded interests when viewing someone else’s profile. Currently, users only see shared interests between one another, but when this new feature rolls out, you’ll be able to learn a little more about the person you’re viewing.
The update has only rolled out to iOS devices for right now, but these new features will make their way to the Google Play Store sometime soon. Head to the Play link below to check out the app.
