"During a Swipe Surge, activity is up to 15x higher," Tinder said in a blog post. "And with that many more people at the party, your match-making potential is increased by 250%, which means you'll also spark up a new convo with a cutie 33% faster."
To use the feature, you'll need to turn on the app's push notifications. Leave your app open to join the "surge," which will push your profile to the top of Tinder's queue.
The dating app said Swipe Surges happen around spring break, at festivals or concerts, and at conferences. Other data shows activity surges on Monday nights as well.
These apps focus on the most popular ride-hailing times to help drivers earn more money. According to The Telegraph, Uber's surge feature raises the prices of rides when the demand is higher.
Swipe Surge is testing for iOS users in large US cities, but Tinder hasn't given a global release date yet.
