Whether its 80s pop or hard-core techno, many singletons would prefer to date someone with a similar music taste to them.
Now, Tinder has made it easier to suss out potential matches’ music interests, with the launch of its latest feature, Music Mode.

How to try Music Mode
Music Mode is the newest immersive experience within Tinder’s Explore tab, and has been created in collaboration with Spotify.
In a blog announcing the new feature, Tinder explained: ‘Through an integration with Spotify, Music Mode automatically plays members’ chosen Anthems – that one song that defines them inside and out – right from their profiles.
‘Members who link their Spotify accounts and add an Anthem to their Tinder profiles will be able to enter Music Mode.’
According to Tinder, about 40 per cent of all Gen Z members (those born from 1997-2012) already have Anthems on their profiles.
However, Music Mode takes things a step further, by automatically playing your Anthem from your profile.
Mr Miller added: ‘Now with Music Mode, our members can experience that feeling when you’re at a party and you find out someone else loves the same songs you do.
‘It’s amazing how adding music as another element of discovery elevates the whole experience on Tinder.’
To try Music Mode yourself, open the Tinder app and click on your pofile.
A survey of 1,001 Tinder users in September found that 84 per cent of users are hoping to find a match who shares their taste in music.
Music compatibility was also found to be more important them them than looks (64 per cent), political views (61 per cent) and even a sense of humour (48 per cent).
