The top picks on Tinder is a feature available for Tinder Gold, the paid plan of the relationship app, which highlights the profiles that would best match the user, based on common interests. The tool started to be tested in June 2018 only on the iPhone (iOS), but currently it also works on Android phones.

What Top Pick means on Tinder
Top Picks literally means Top Picks – that is, the top choices. The judgment is made by the Tinder algorithm, according to the information collected by the dating app. It is not possible to make your profile appear to someone in particular, not even being highlighted in the app.

Who is entitled to Picks
Top Picks is an exclusive Tinder Gold service, but anyone who does not subscribe to the premium plan may have a taste of the tool. Every day, the platform grants a free Top Pick to everyone. Gold account users, however, receive a Top Picks package.
The type of access is also different. Non-subscribers can only view the profile summary, with the photo, name and age, as well as a brief description of the person, such as "cook", "doctor" or "adventurer". To enter profiles and explore personal information, as well as match or Super Like, I need to update the plan to Gold.

Top Picks are updated every 24 hours. After that, the application shows new profiles to the Gold subscriber. These, if they want to see more "Choices" within that period, they can buy separate Top Picks. But it is important to look at everything on the same day, as the extra Picks also expire at that time.
People around the world may have common interests with you, and Tinder knows that. For this reason, the platform allows you to use the Passport feature to view Top Picks from anywhere. Thus, the user can save even more time with the slips while traveling and looking for company.
