Those who work in offices, especially the more traditional ones, almost always end up having to spend a minute here or there to resolve personal issues, or even take advantage of some free time to organize other areas of life. Because with the increasing return to face-to-face work, many home office customs will have to readapt. That’s why Tinder is reminding its users that there is a way to keep flirting without despairing.
In other words, the feature made available for the PC version of the dating application does require a certain agility from the user, as it requires the user to switch screens quickly clicking on a briefcase icon, thus activating “Work Mode”. Hence, instead of the common interface of the platform, the screen will change to a fake document, with graphs and tables, describing minutes of an alleged meeting.
If you haven’t had meetings recently, or you don’t need to do or read this type of document, the method may not work that well.
Of course, you still need to count on your boss or coworker not noticing the browser tab, which continues with the name “Tinder”, in addition to the usual little fire icon.
The platform discloses that the feature totaled more than 1 million clicks before the pandemic, and has been increasing recently. An internal survey of the platform also states that 30% of respondents used Tinder during meetings and 47% prefer to match and chat with other people during business hours rather than in person — in addition to 32% saying that they have already arranged meetings during business hours, perhaps to a lunch or coffee.
In all cases, there are still some suggestions for shortcuts that can be more useful in everyday life — in the case of Google Chrome, CTRL + W closes current tab, while CTRL + TAB switches between open tabs. If you close one in a hurry, by the way, you can reopen it by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + T.
