You can now swipe left and right on the newly redesigned version of Tinder

Looks may not be the most crucial thing when it comes to finding your partner, but when it comes to the tool you use to find said partner, then yes, aesthetics are all-important. No one understands this better than Tinder, which in many ways, seems to have catalyzed our societal obsession with swiping left and right to find love, and now, the dating app is swiping left on its own design and bringing in a new look.

“Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work refreshing the user experience,” the team announced in a blog post. “Today, we’re excited to start rolling out a more seamless way to navigate Tinder for our users around the world.”

First and foremost, Tinder is allowing you to explore profiles more easily simply by tapping on the edge of a photo in order to move onto the next picture, or vice versa. If you tap on the bottom of a fellow user’s profile card, you can smoothly transition over to their complete profile view. This new interface promises to be more intuitive and faster than the previous iteration, and promises to help you find “everything you want to know about a potential match –from their bio and shared connections, to their anthem, top artists, or Instagram feed — quicker and easier than ever before.”

Then, of course, there is Tinder’s renewed focus on users’ looks by allowing photos to take up more real estate on the app. Now, when you are checking someone out, you will be able to check out a picture that extends right to the edge of your screen (because you should not need to squint at your potential significant other).

And finally, there is what you cannot see. Tinder notes it introduced new technology to power its app. “With a new look and feel, a new app architecture, and Apple’s new open-source programming language, we set out to reinvent the Tinder card stack,” the team notes in its tech blog. And if you’re interested in learning more about exactly how the engineers at Tinder allow you to swipe right (or left!) you can check out their engineering posts.
