Tinder has brought its iconic Swipe Left – Swipe Right interface from its dating app to iMessage. This will allow users to vote on any set of images on the messaging app. With Tinder Stacks, you can send your friends a stack photos to swipe and vote on—from which selfie should be your profile pic to which outfit you should wear tonight.

The aim is to let iMessage be used as a voting tool when you need approval or disapproval of something. For example, you can send your friend a group of selfies to take their approval on which one should be put up as a display picture. Recipients of the images will then be able to swipe left for ‘no’ and swipe right for ‘yes’ on any picture that they like or dislike.

“We know that life is full of difficult decisions. So, whenever you need more input, Tinder Stacks will help you get your friends to weigh in. Not sure which party shot you should post from last night? Stack it. Need input on which filter you should add to your beach photos? Stack it. Group decision-making drama is a thing of the past. Just stack it,” said the company in a blog post.

“With Tinder Stacks, we’re bringing swiping to everyone, in any scenario,” the post added.

To get your friends to start voting, simply create a stack from a selection of photos and then send it to your friends, who can then vote on them. To start stacking, all a user needs is a question to ask and the Tinder app downloaded on your phone.
