Tinder moves to the desktop with new messaging feature

Tinder has announced plans to move from the palm of users' hands to the desktop with a new website that lets would-be daters to view their match’s profile while messaging.

Currently, Tinder is only available on smartphone and tablet devices but soon, users will be able to swipe from the comfort of their desktops if there are unable to access the company's app.

New and returning users can visit Tinder.com, log in through their Facebook accounts and swipe left or right like they would on the app.

"Tinder is present in more than 190 countries, and we've created new connections in every single one of them,”said Brian Norgard, head of product and revenue at Tinder.

“With Tinder Online, we're thrilled to make the Tinder experience accessible and available for more users than ever, on any device, any platform, and through any browser."

Although some features are limited compared to the mobile app, there is a new addition to the online version where users will be able to view their match’s profile while they chat.

Tinder Online is currently being trialed in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, Italy, and Sweden.

The company are aware that some areas have limited access to Facebook and are testing new ways to login via SMS directly from your smartphone.
