After a record-smashing 2021, the app and its audiences are bigger than ever.
The downsides: Hinge only gives you seven matches per day, which is a slight bummer.
When Smart Photos is enabled, the app automatically auditions every photo in your lineup in the primary spot.
Aside from asking about your personal values and interests, Match allows you to specify what you want or don't want in a partner and how important that is: If you'd prefer someone who doesn't smoke cigarettes but it's not a deal breaker, Match lets you specify that, and if you choose "This is a deal breaker," they won't give you potential matches that had that in their answers.
But until recently, that influence was indirect: users would learn of a product through the app, then head elsewhere to make their purchase.
Usage varies by country.
