The mobile dating app is upping it’s game…

Tinder is one of the most popular apps for single people at the moment, JOE knows you’re probably on it even if you’re a little embarrassed to admit it, but for the 14 people in the country who don’t know about it, here’s how it works.

The app connects with your Facebook to build up a bit of information about your personality, what you like, your interests etc. You can add a number of pictures of yourself looking dashing and write a few lines about how great you are or the popular “I’m only on here to see what all the fuss is about…”

You can then set a distance range for potential dates and then the magic happens. A load of girls/guys will appear on your screen, if you like them, swipe right and if you don’t fancy them swipe left and if there’s a mutual match, you can start a conversation. Easy.

The new feature is called ‘Moments’, which is basically Snapchat. You post a photo that will stay online for just 24 hours, it will be sent to all of your matches and you’ll be notified if any of them like your photo, which the people at Tinder hope will lead to more conversations and interaction. You can let your creative side out too by adding captions, filters or even drawing on them.

Tinder co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Sean Rad said they want the new tool “to help users to get to know their matches better.”

If you like the sound of it, the update will be available sometime today and if you think it sounds annoying, you can hide the feature.
