With the crisis of the COVID-19, the feature “Passport” had become accessible to all.
Thanks to its users and several smart decisions, Tinder has been able to reinvent themselves during these long weeks of confinement. Last march, one of its premium features, ” Passport “, had been made accessible to all via an update. In a recent post published on Twitter, the specialist in prediction of new features on the applications Jane Manchun Wong has reported that the “Passport” would evolve.
The good news for those who have taken advantage of this mode and their period of containment to go to meetings around the world, is that “Passport” will not disappear, but transform themselves. In a screenshot, the computer specialist has shown a mysterious mode “Global” and “Local” on Tinder. The first seems to be similar to the feature, then as now, we need to make in the setup menu to change the area where we want to meet people.

This will make the feature simpler to use due to its accessibility. At the same time, this shows how Tinder – and the applications of meeting in general – account to take advantage of the new behaviour that arrived during the confinement period to be able to evolve their system. We charge right in to applications meeting becoming more and more “applications relational” in its own right.
Foster virtual relationships
By approaching the model of social networks, with the arrival of video calls in particular, these applications keep a major difference : the relationships above are only of the new relationship. Tinder has understood that its ” Passport “, which increases the possibilities of meeting, will be a key advantage. Some users Tinder can be found in places where the number of users in a radius of 10 kilometres can be restricted.
Applications of meeting, and beyond
The evolution of the mode “Passport” on Tinder to “Global” also says a lot about the consequences of the health crisis. Now, the meetings are not intended to be an appointment physical, and some are there to enjoy chat with people from the other side of the globe to share a common passion or to be able to practice a language. It remains only to see if Tinder will introduce its functionality. Usually, Jane Manchun Wong is not wrong, but the officialisations may take several weeks or even several months.
