OkCupid has several special features that aim to give users a full dating experience and find someone that they are compatible with in terms of views, hobbies, and interests.
Double Take is OkCupid's matching feature. It's a roulette-type matching where you need to either swipe left if you're not interested or swipe right if you are.
See Who You Like
You can keep track of the members you like by going to the list of 'Who You Like' found on the 'Likes' tab. You can freely message these users, and they will see on Double Take that you messaged them.
See Who Likes You
You can view who likes you on the 'Likes' tab. However, this feature is only for OkCupid premium members.
Boost is an add-on feature where your OkCupid profile gets highlighted. Boosted OkCupid profiles are shown more frequently on other members' Double Take suggestions and OkCupid search.
OkCupid also offers Super Boost that increases your chances of likes with an extended boost! Available in 12, 6, and 3 hours.
OkCupid has a blog that publishes tips on how you can maximize the OkCupid app and dating platform. They also have articles about helpful dating tips and advice, so you can get the most out of your OkCupid search for a lifetime partner.
Since OKCupid is a big dating platform, you may get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of matches you get. With Stacks, you can efficiently categorize them. You can group them according to options like "Nearby," "Online," "Recommended," and the "Question Pros" or those who answered most of OKCupid's compatibility questions.
I'm Vaccinated Profile Badge
For those who are feeling conscious about safety, OKCupid added a special feature where members can add an "I'm Vaccinated" badge on their profiles. This feature is for all members who had at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
60 New Identity Options For LGBTQ Users
OkCupid added over 60 new options for its LGBTQ members to better express who they are and how they identify. Members can also filter other profiles according to their identities, ensuring they find their most compatible matches. Some of the newly available options include "Top", "Femme", "Bear", "Otter", "Twink", "Drag Queen" and "Versatile."
The famous algorithm connects you with people you're compatible with based on your choices, their preferences, and the common questions you've answered. But our new Cupid's Picks tool takes it a step further by matching you with people who are not only highly compatible with you but also more likely to match with you. Your Cupid's Picks are updated daily, so you can be confident that you're getting the best folks for you right now with each new batch.
Available in 9 Languages
OkCupid is now available in Argentinian Spanish, Chinese Traditional, Dutch, Swedish, and Indonesian, in addition to English, French, Turkish, and German. Users whose smartphones are configured to any of these languages can now access inquiries, dialogues, notifications, and all other aspects of the app in their favorite language.
The brand-new function suggests some of the most effective icebreakers, making it as simple as one click. If you want to make it more personalized, you can also look back over your match's profile when you match today. This way, you may find something you have in common with them — perhaps they have a photo with a dog and you, too, are a dog lover, or they indicated in their profile that they need travel suggestions for Portugal and you're an expert — and message them about it. Whatever you decide, don't put it off any longer. This functionality is presently available on Android and will be available on iOS soon.
OkCupid has now released chat reactions, which make messaging on the app feel more like texting than ever before. React with emojis depending on your mood, and continue your conversation on OkCupid until you are completely comfortable.
OkCupid prioritizes safety, and users will soon be able to search for dates that have verified their profile with a selfie. Our support team reviews every single one, so you can be confident that you're matching with a real person. Uploading your selfie for profile verification simply takes a minute, and it's worth it: 64% of OkCupid users polled claimed they're more likely to match with a verified profile. It will be made available to consumers in the coming weeks.
You can now send photos to your matches! So don’t just describe the view to your match; send them a photo. But keep your photos modest and less-naughty!
