DENVER -- Online dating just got an upgrade.

The app Tinder has just added a new feature called Tinder Social, it lets singles meet in a group setting.

Tinder Social launched this week and it’s already getting positive reaction from Denver singles.

“I saw it last night, I thought it was interesting because there’s more than one person on the same page,” said Vivian Nguyen.

Typically, the app shows you potential suitors within your range. You can either swipe left or swipe right. Now, you and your friends can chose to meet up with other Tinder users in groups.

“I have friends on Tinder too, so why not!” said Nguyen.

The company describes this upgrade as a platform to help you plan your night. Singles can see who’s going out and what exactly they’re doing.

Denver daters said the idea of a social group setting with multiple people will feel safer than a one-on-one meet up.

“That would feel like so much less pressure, I think. It would feel definitely much safer just to not have to be one-on-one,” said  Rebecca Hickman.

You can also choose to join groups that include both men and women. An idea that’s keen to those just moving to a brand new city.

But there are a few potential issues people can see coming.

“What if you like one person more than the other and then your friend likes the same person, how would that work?” said Hickman.

To access the upgrade, app users must unlock the Tinder Social feature.
