Tinder to Use AI to Help You Pick the Perfect Profile Pics

Tinder wants to make sure you look your most attractive in the photos you post on the app, and it’s enlisting the help of artificial intelligence to make it happen.

In its Q2 earnings report on Wednesday, the dating app said it wanted to create new features that would support the needs of Gen Z users. One of the features, AI-enabled photo selection, will help you select the five best photos of yourself to use in your dating profile.

CEO Bernard Kim says that users who join Tinder often get stuck when it comes to uploading photos and are unsure which ones will represent them the best. The AI feature is designed to take a bit of the guesswork out of creating the perfect profile on the service, and make onboarding new users happen a bit faster.

The company also has plans to use AI to propose ideal matches for users. Beyond just sharing an individual’s profile, the app will explain why it thinks that person is a good match. The hope is that users will spend less time swiping and more time connecting with potential matches.

A preview of the AI match-suggesting feature includes an image of a potential match along with the caption “Get ready for endless laughter with this witty charmer who shares your love for brunch, scary movies, and a laid-back approach to life!”

During the Reuters Momentum event last month, Tinder CPO Mark Van Rswyk said a third of its members would “absolutely” use AI to help them build a profile on the app, TechCrunch reports(Opens in a new window).
