In November 2016, Tinder introduced more options for users to select their gender.
Companion apps were being developed by different companies allowing users to, for example, use the user's heart rate to determine which direction to swipe instead of the user swiping with their hands.
The main companion site for Tinder has been Facebook, as Tinder users connect their Facebook profile to their Tinder accounts for verification and profile details.
Initially, instead of a swiping motion, users would click on either a green "heart" or red "X" to select or move on from the photos shown.

Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another's photos.
