On August 6, 2019, Match Group announced that Tinder had 5.2 million paying subscribers at the end of 2019's second quarter, up 1.5 million from the year-ago quarter and up 503,000 from the first quarter of 2019.
Tinder's primary companion site has been Facebook, as Tinder users were originally required to connect their Facebook profiles to their Tinder accounts for verification and profile details.
Users can, for example, use companion apps to have their heart rate determine which direction to swipe, instead of swiping with their fingers.
Companion apps have been developed to provide different actions or mechanisms to accomplish Tinder's swipe function.
Tinder claims its users can receive up to ten times as many profile views as usual while Boost is active. Non-subscribers and Tinder Plus subscribers who want more Boosts can purchase additional Boost actions.
In November 2016, Tinder introduced more options for gender selection. a members-only service, offering their most exclusive features: Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and more profile controls.
As of late 2014, an estimated 50 million people used the app every month with an average of 12 million matches per day.
However, to get to those 12 million matches, users collectively made around 1 billion swipes per day. As of June 2016, Tinder is no longer usable by anyone under 18.
