22 Innovative Dating App Features

From Selfie Profile Verifications to Photo-Optimizing Tools

— November 14, 2016 — Tech
While apps such as Tinder have revolutionized the way consumers meet potential partners, a host of innovative dating app features are popping up to help make this process easier and more enjoyable. Instead of simply connecting users with other singles, these new features help to create more meaningful and compatible matches.

One of the most innovative features to appear on popular dating apps are queue-jumping tools. These tools often involve the use of an algorithm that moves one user's profile to the head of the line in order to speed up the matchmaking process. Some dating apps that have already implemented this feature include The League and Tinder.

Beyond making it quicker to find potential matches, there are also dating app features that help ensure those matches made are more likely to result is a successful pairing. This often involves giving users more tools to personalize their profile and help them find someone with similar interests. Examples of these features include Tinder's election-themed filters, Bumble's Spotify-syncing music tool and Badoo's video profiles.
