Tinder Charging Age-Based Fee for New Update

    If you are over 30, finding love on Tinder is going to be more expensive.

    The dating app has released a new premium version that includes new features to help people connect, but the cost of the update depends on the user’s age.

    Users in America over 30 will pay $19.99 per month, while users under 30 will pay $9.99.

    Tinder said in a statement that the fees are not out of the ordinary for subscription services.

    "Lots of products offer differentiated price tiers by age, like Spotify does for students, for example," said spokesperson Rosette Pambakian. "Tinder is no different; during our testing we’ve learned, not surprisingly, that younger users are just as excited about TinderPlus, but are more budget constrained, and need a lower price to pull the trigger."

    The premium version also comes with two new features: “Rewind” allows people to undo "left swipes," or rejections of other users, while “Passport” also allows the ability to change geographic locations, meaning you can try to connect with people in different countries.

    The update also now limits the number of “likes,” or right swipes a person can make within a certain time frame. 

    Tinder wouldn't say how many people use the app, but an unnamed person told the New York Times late last year that it has managed to draw 50 million monthly users.
