In November 2016, Tinder introduced more options for users to select their gender.
In the app's settings, users have the option to type a word that suits their gender identity.
Users also have the option to have this displayed on their profile or not.
This feature was released for the US, UK, and Canada.
The app notifies the user if they have been Super Liked with a blue border that surrounds the profile of the person who Super Liked them.
It then allows the user to either swipe right or left.

Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another's photos.
If two users like each other it then results in a "match" and they are able to chat within the app.
In March 2015, Tinder announced the public release of its paid service, Tinder Plus, a feature allowing unlimited matches, whereas the free Tinder app limits the number of right swipes in a 12-hour period.
The Boost feature lets the user have the top profile in the area for thirty minutes.
Users receive up to ten times the amount of profile views while boosting. If users do not have Tinder Plus or want more Boosts, they can be purchased in the app.
Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties swiped to the right (a match). Tinder is among the first "swiping apps", whose users employ a swiping motion to choose photos of other users, swiping right for potentially good matches and swiping left on a photo to move to the next one.
