Have sex love on the brain, but no time to waste? Tinder is speeding up the process of finding a potential mate.
The dating app on Wednesday introduced a new members-only service called Tinder Gold, which, among other perks, includes a feature called Likes You that, as its name suggests, lets you see who likes you before you swipe. Tinder said it will begin piloting the feature in Argentina, Australia, Canada, and Mexico "in the coming days" and hopes to roll it out to all users "soon."
"Think of it as your personal Swipe Right concierge—available 24/7—bringing all of your pending matches to you," Tinder wrote in a blog post. "Now you can sit back, enjoy a fine cocktail, and browse through profiles at your leisure."
A Tinder Gold membership also offers gives you access to the app's "most exclusive features" including Passport, Rewind, Unlimited Likes, five Super Likes per day, one Boost per month, and more profile controls. Tinder Passport lets you search for matches all over the world — vacation hookup, anyone? — and toggle between your locations. Rewind lets you undo your last swipe if you messed up, and Unlimited Likes is pretty much self-explanatory (Tinder normally only lets you "like" 100 people every 12 hours).
Tinder already has a premium tier called Plus, which launched in 2015, offering Passport, Rewind, and Unlimited Likes for a fee. The company received a bit of backlash about its Plus pricing: it costs $9.99 a month, unless you're above the age of 30, in which case it'll set you back $19.99 a month.

"We are testing a number different price points in Australia, Argentina, Mexico and Canada," the company wrote.
Meanwhile, the app's Super Like feature, also introduced in 2015, lets you indicate with a blue star that you're really, really into someone. Normally, Tinder users can only dole out one Super Like per day.
Boost, which Tinder added last fall, lets you pay to be one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes. Tinder Plus users already get one free Boost a week while those using the free version of the app can pay separately for this perk.
